Description of Grammar Camps

Discover Summer by the Week provides 13 weeks of day camp options for students who have completed grades K-6. Each week is composed of themed activities, art and/or music, grammar book club (when scheduled), and lots of outdoor exploration and play time. Campers will tend a garden and make scientific observations in the school’s pond area.

The camp is staffed with two of our college-aged alumni, Claire Mackes and Sophie Schulze, and some of our fabulous teachers. Campers will bring their own lunches. The camp day is from 10:00 AM to 3:30 PM, Monday to Friday. Due to COVID-19, the extended camp day has been canceled.
