Little Explorers (Ages 3, 4, and 5)

Little Explorers is a Montessori-based program for three, four, and five-yearolds. Veteran Montessori educators engage students with dynamic adventures built into their daily activities. Ancona Summer Little Explorers will enjoy tinkering, art, outdoor activities, nature walks, and other academically rich programming.

Journeys (1st through 8th Grades)

Journeys is a student-centered eight-week adventure comprised of four unique journeys. Journeys emphasize the creative process, hands-on techniques, and teamwork. Each Journey includes multiple field trips, extended time outdoors, and weekly swimming. 

SPORTS: June 22nd – June 26th
Fresh off yet another championship season with the flag football team (that’s FOUR IN A ROW folks)! Coach Jerome will be joined by familiar faces from Ancona to bring some friendly competition to the summer! Students will engage in a variety of sports and team activities that emphasize sportsmanship, teamwork, and fun. This Journey will engage young athletes and boost their confidence in a low-stress environment!

PERFORMING ARTS: June 29th – July 10th
Performing Arts will bring the creativity and performer out of your child! Students will develop a foundation in improvisation, theater games, and skit development in an environment that fosters acceptance, freedom, and fun! Campers will then have the opportunity to build a performance piece of their own choosing, and the Journey will culminate with a Cabaret style performance featuring all of our brilliant young thespians on Friday, July 10th.

URBAN FARMING: July 13th – July 31st
Due to high demand, we have added a THIRD week of Urban Farming programming for our Ancona Summer families to enjoy. From farming in our garden to building wildlife habitats, campers will get their hands dirty throughout this Journey with our very own Outdoor Learning Educator, Chris Weber!  With outings to nature preserves, hanging around with goats, and checking out local neighborhood chicken coops, Urban Farming will introduce and reinforce practices to ensure campers become good stewards of the Earth. 

ENGINEERING: August 3rd – August 14th
Technology Coordinator Rodney Williams wants to bring the maker out in your child! Campers will have the chance to explore simple circuits, a variety of computer programs, coding, and much more!  What’s more, after learning fabrication techniques from a plethora of makers and engineering experts, our intrepid engineers will have the knowledge and confidence to fabricate their very own creation.
