Summer Camp

For rising 3rd through 8th graders

What are your kids doing this summer?

Summer is a time when it's easy for kids to fall behind. Days spent streaming TV and movies, playing video games, the days run together and then summer is gone.

Our Solution

At Altamont, we know it's important to decompress and unwind from school, but we also know the value of using the summer months constructively so that your child's time isn't wasted.

How We Do It

The Altamont Summer

Formula for Success

Structure

Summer at Altamont groups grade levels together. We offer summer weeks in cohorts that reflect grade level and age.

We have two sets of camps that are designed to appeal to the interests of every child! Weeks 1-3 are structured in a more typical academic setting. Weeks 4 and 5 are built to get kids exploring and pushing their limits.

Engagement

Our curriculum is designed to keep your child on track for the best future possible, while keeping them engaged!

We provide students with the best possible setting to interest interest them in new material and sharpen their existing skills.

Fun

Everyone needs a break! We have ample opportunities throughout the day for your child to let loose some energy and enjoy the time with their friends.

While we value the opportunity summer provides to get ahead, it's important to remember that childhood is a time for fun.

A Typical Day

A Summer Day

8:30 - 10:00 | English

For younger students, English is a chance to read and discuss a variety of literature, compose creative writing pieces, and examine/write about art. While the writing is informal, it taps into basic skills, such as sentence formation and paragraph writing.

For our older students, the English class is a standard survey of applied grammar that exposes students to the kinds of expository essays common in a college preparatory curriculum.

10:00 - 10:15 | Snack Break!

10:15 - 11:00 | Games

After snack break, we hit the court or the field and play games for forty-five minutes! Students have access to our newly renovated Patton Gym, our soccer field, and our Gaga Ball pit.

11:00 - 11:45 | Languages

After athletic games with their classmates, students will end their morning with a fun introduction to three world languages and cultures. French, Latin, and Spanish get equal time through the week.

11:45 - 12:30 | Lunch!

12:30 - 2:00 | Fine Art

In art classes, students will experience opportunities to explore painting, acting, music, and other artistic mediums. Working with our award-winning faculty, students will spend the summer gaining a new appreciation for the arts.

2:00 - 3:30 | Math

For our youngest students we will build and draw mathematical models and search for numerical patterns while still focusing on basic computational skills.

Our oldest students have a risk-free environment to focus on the topics essential for success in 7th and 8th grade math.

Weeks 4 & 5

Weeks 4 & 5 vary significantly from the start of our summer. During these weeks, students have the opportunity to be a bit more adventurous and work on skills that aren't typically associated with a school setting.

Primarily, Summer at Altamont recognizes the need for the development of soft skills and leadership opportunities for younger students. To achieve these goals, we facilitate their experiential learning in a variety of settings: from the stage, to boulder fields, to nearby rivers.

To get a better idea of what these two weeks look like, check the schedule down below.
