Traditional & Specialty Summer Camps - June 22 to August 21, 2020

HMS offers a fun, recreational, and educational summer program welcome to students in Hoboken and surrounding communities.  Experienced teachers extend the classroom experience through quality programs while focusing on an exciting weekly theme. Our warm, nurturing, and hands-on environment is designed to create an engaging social atmosphere. We offer a truly unique combination of indoor Montessori activities, crafts, games, experiments, coupled with plenty of outdoor time, presenters, and walking field trips.  Outdoor activities include park time, water play, games and gross-motor activities.  We will also have an indoor play space for days we cannot get outside. 

This year our Summer Program will offer a 9 week Traditional Camp and a 4 week Specialty Camp from 7/6 to 7/31 for our older campers.
