Summer Equals Fun at Northstar!
Our Summer Camp program is designed for older siblings of current Northstar students and former Northstar Montessori students who have completed Young 5s, Kindergarten, or 1st grade (children aged 5, 6, and 7 years), and allows them to reconnect with their Montessori experience within a more flexible environment.
During Summer Camp we generally follow the same daily schedule that we use in our regular classrooms throughout the year, but our curriculum centers around biweekly themes--and we leave more time for outside activities!

All things nature! Michigan backyard birds, bird feeders, bee habitats, flower gardening, sprouting veggies, tree identification.

Our daily schedule is much the same as what we follow during the school year, but with more time set aside for outdoor play.
