Session 1 - June

Our first session of summer kicks off with Nature Explorers and Soccer.  We enjoy soaking up the sunshine and learning new skills. Parents are welcome to enroll their child in one or all of the sessions. Other offerings range from serious science and math, art lessons and for some classrooms (NEW THIS YEAR) we will get them moving with ZUMBA fun!   


Most sessions are designed as "pull-out" sessions throughout the day so the children continue their learning in the classroom but with a break in the morning for that week's camp activities.


Added to the fun this month are swimming lessons. MCG partners with Rush-Copley Healthplex to offer afternoon lessons for interested families. Certainly not required, but a fun opportunity to take lessons with your friends. Lessons run daily for two weeks. (Not available for toddlers.)


Camp schedule by classroom:

Toddler:  Spectacular Science & Art - Monet on a Mission

Early Childhood/Kindergarten: Nature, Soccer, Zumba,

Art - Monet on a Mission

Elementary: Nature, Soccer, Zumba, Serious Science & Math (2 weeks!)



Summer Camp - The learning continues...


...but with a little extra fun!  Summer camp at MCG is designed to allow for continued learning for our families. Siblings and alumni students are also welcome to enroll in one or more camps throught the summer period. Even if you have never experienced MCG, but would like to participate in the summer fun, you are invited to come. It won't take long for your child to feel part of the MCG community.


MCG offers summer camps for children from two years of age through fifth grade.  Each classroom (toddlers, early childhood and elementary) participate in their own camps, designed uniquely for them. For additional details regarding camps specific to your child's age group, please call for a camp brochure.  630-820-1010
