Tigers (entering grades 1 & 2)
This summer, the Tigers' weekly themes will focus on science, animals and nature. Tigers swim three days per week and take five field trips over the course of the summer, including visits to the Crystal Cave Park, the Delaware Children's Museum and the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire. 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.
