Summer Camp

Elementary, The Montessori Academy of Arlington, Private School Arlington TX

Learn, Explore, and Play at Camp TMA 2019

This is not your average Summer Camp!

Camp TMA, our Elementary Summer Program, welcomes students ages 6-12 to a Montessori Summer. The 9-week summer term is included in our year-round option, and is also available by session for students enrolled in the school-year option. Our summer program offers emphasis on special topics and activities while maintaining a Montessori environment focused on strengthening independence and interdependence. For all sessions, mornings will be spent outdoors in activities focused on gardening, movement, collaborative games, and exploration of our 5-acre wildscape.

Rising First, Second, and Third Levels will spend their mornings in one of our Lower Elementary classrooms under the guidance of a Montessori-credentialed teacher with afternoons spent with Mr. Walt in the outdoor environment and multi-purpose room. During the morning work cycle, students will engage in activities designed to sharpen math and reading skills. Special hands-on activities will allow children to explore summer camp themes in fun, creative ways.

Rising Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Levels’ mornings will be spent outdoors while afternoon work will incorporate projects connected with the session’s theme, under the guidance and supervision of Upper Elementary teacher, Price Barnes.

Families new to TMA are required to meet with the Head of School before enrollment is confirmed. For further information please contact us.
