Summer Camp Program
Our summer camp program provides kindergarteners through third graders an enjoyable, supportive environment for the summer months. Filled with field trips, interactive activities, and kid-led discussions, your child is sure to enjoy their summer at Canterbury.
Camping in the City at Canterbury School is a full-time summer program that is specially designed to be fun and educational for children age 3 through 8. It includes students from our year-round school plus additional students from other schools. Highly-qualified teachers guide children in the classroom, outdoors, and on numerous field trips. Classrooms are well-equipped and class sizes are small.
Visual Art, Performing Arts, and Science are the themes for the summer. After an introduction to each theme, student’s individual interests are explored further. Hands-on academics, including literacy and mathematics, are also integrated throughout each day. In addition to the classroom experience, children enjoy numerous field trips, swimming, and outdoor play.
The ultimate goal is for children to feel successful and confident, as they become friends, team members, and leaders. All activities are specifically tailored for each age group. Our small class sizes allow friendships to flourish, and our end of the summer talent show showcases students’ learning.
Campers age 5-8 will enjoy about two field trips per week in addition to weekly swimming. Field trips include major Atlanta attractions, including Georgia Aquarium, Zoo Atlanta, Atlanta Botanical Gardens, Fernbank History Museum, and Imagine It! Children’s Museum. Field trips also include local galleries and museums, a cooking lesson, a dance studio, an art studio, a movie theatre, performances at local theaters, numerous local parks, and several others. Swimming lessons are also available. Contact us for more information.
