Summer Program 2022
Are you looking for a program that is engaging, educational, and exciting for your child this summer? Acton is offering weekly summer camps starting on July 18th! Our summer sessions will be an introduction to the Acton experience, and we will introduce your child to many Acton systems and processes that have roots in the Montessori system. Our campers will spend some time during the day doing CORE (math, reading, typing, spelling, etc.). Of these skills, they will nurture their independence, confidence and responsibility. This part of the day will keep your child’s skills sharp throughout the summer and ready to take on the school year. They will learn to do for themselves and find joy in learning. In the afternoon, we will participate in several hands-on camp activities! Join us this summer and be prepared to see something extraordinary! The summer program is open to all students.
Week One: July 18-July 22
Animal Planet (Grades K-4)
Saddle up for excitement! Get ready for a walk on the wild side with creepy crawlies, unique mammals, feathered friends, and more. Perfect for curious kids, animal lovers, and future veterinarians alike. Animal Planet brings your elementary learners an introduction to amazing facts about animals, awesome crafts, and tons of fun! Campers will discover incredible facts and fascinating stories about their favorite animals and some they have never heard of.
Creative Writing Camp (Grades 5-8)
Tune-up and sharpen your writing skills this summer! This week, your campers will receive a workshop filled with creative fun as it flexes their writing muscles. Campers will write a dramatic play in collaboration with their friends. They will have to come up with a plot, characters, and dialogues. The play will be complete with a conflict, a climax, and a resolution. This week will be an intense activity week focused on collaborative development of a play script. Campers in collaboration with each other will think of a viable scenario with an action filled plot. Each will have a role in the play with dialogues and a part of the action. They will be able to not only develop some collaborative writing skills but also an understanding of the dramatic genre.
