Tigers (entering grades 1 & 2)
Tigers swim three days per week and take five field trips over the course of the summer. Every week includes music, arts and crafts, team-building and exploring the Wilmington Montessori School woods. Active games, water play, all-camp parties and in-house field trips round out the summer experience.
As Tigers, campers have their first opportunity to participate in Camp Montessori electives! Three afternoons per week, campers choose from a new slate of counselor-led elective activities including archery, photography, LEGO projects and more.
Highly Trained & Experienced Staff
The Tigers are led by year-round Wilmington Montessori School teacher Carolyn Malatesta. Tigers also participate in STEAM activities in our Maker Studios throughout the summer. Additionally, Wilmington Montessori School's year-round art teacher Laurie Muhlbauer explores a wide range of art projects with work with campers each week.
