Dragons (entering grades 6-9)

Dragons

The Dragons, our rising sixth- through ninth-graders, swim three days per week at Windybush Swim Club, and take seven field trips over the course of the summer including visits to the Renaissance Faire, a ropes course and Guppy Gulch. Active games, water play, all-camp parties and visiting programs round out the summer experience. Some free-choice time is provided every day, allowing campers to follow their own interests. 

Highlights:

Leadership Opportunities

As the oldest group at Camp Montessori, the Dragons demonstrate leadership in many areas, including planning and running a carnival for the younger children in the final week of camp.

Highly Trained & Experienced Staff
The Dragons are led by year-round Wilmington Montessori School staff member Brandy Solomon. They participate in STEAM activities in our Maker Studios throughout the summer. Additionally, WMS's year-round art teacher Laurie Muhlbauer explores a wide range of art projects with work with campers each week.

Electives
Three afternoons per week, campers choose from a new slate of counselor-led elective activities including archery, basketball, photography, LEGO projects, writing and more.
