Bambini Camp

Age 3-5

***NOW AVAILABLE IN ENGLISH & SPANISH***

Develop skills for next steps in school: confidence, independence, community.

3-year-old children are integrated into Bambini Camp, giving all campers an opportunity to benefit from a multi-age experience. Inspired by the foundational concepts of Montessori education and led by professional, summer-round counselors, 3-year-olds practice being in a community with others, engage in fun activities and experience time outdoors. Please note that campers age 3 must be starting the NNM 3-6 program this fall. Campers ages 4+ from outside learning communities are welcome. Children who were a part of NNM’s toddler community may be eligible for a Specialty Camp, with approval from the Academic Director.

Exciting activities include:

  • Open House before your child’s first week to visit camp and meet counselors
  • Open-ended play materials (animals, dolls, trains, blocks, puzzles)
  • Creative, hands-on arts and crafts
  • Outdoor water play in sprinklers (3-year-old Bambini campers are not eligible for pool swim)
  • Healthy mid-morning snack
  • Daily outdoor play
  • Lunch options available for purchase (full-day campers only)

Afternoon nap (full-day campers only, ages 3 and 4)

NOTE to NNM families: We strongly encourage children who are entering a 3-6 classroom in the fall to enroll in at least two consecutive weeks of Bambini Camp.

Check out these Parent Testimonials about their 3-year-old's experience at camp last summer:

"NNM summer camp for the little ones is a terrific transition for kids entering the 3-6 program. Particularly the gentle nudge to independence and freedom. The safe and friendly environment lends itself to a successful stepping stone. I feel these are critical pieces to have in place in order to allow the children the opportunity to feel proud and good about themselves in this new experience."

“We are so happy that we enrolled our son in the summer camp program before he started in the 3-6 program in the fall. Not only did he have a great time and meet new kids, but it helped him practice leaving mom and dad. Although the first few mornings were tough, the teachers and staff were very reassuring and supportive (not just to him, but to us as parents, as well). And within a few days he was running inside on his own. At the start of the school year, he was confident and ready!”

“Our son loved camp at NNM last summer and it was the right place for him to be at the right time in his development. He loved going to camp and it helped him transition to school in the fall.”

"Our daughter attended the camp this past summer prior to starting in 3-6 at NNM. She had such a wonderful experience! It allowed her comfort in getting used to the routine of getting to school, familiarizing herself with the materials, and making new friends in her community. It was a wonderful time to get comfortable with drop off and separation as well. It was such a relief to me as she was so excited to go each day! When we started school in the fall - she knew more of what to expect. I would recommend signing up your child for this wonderful program - you won't regret it!"
