Summer is right around the corner, Part 3

Thank you, Blair, for your comprehensive list of suggestions on summer camps!  Without further ado, here are some additional suggestions for summer program offerings:

Camp Vida (*pdf)at Providence Montessori, 4911 NE Couch St, 503-215-2409.  The *pdf links to the 2005 program; they're still working on the 2006 program.  I called and the program should be about the same.  It looks like it starts 6/19, runs 5 2-week sessions each with different themes.  Cost is about $95 per wk for half day / $195 per week for full day, and there are before- and after-care options for more money.

Franciscan Montessori Earth School, 14750 SE Clinton, 503-760-8220.  I spoke to someone yesterday and they're mailing a brochure for the summer program. Schoolita Alegria, 1814 NE 33rd, 503-288-5574.  They offer Bilingual School Summer Camp Fun, 6/26-8/10, Ages 3-8, includes Spanish, Art, Movement, Small Class Size.

Harmony Montessori, 1740 SE 139th, 503-255-5337.  The 2005 Summer Camp info can be found here.  I spoke to the director yesterday, she's super nice, and she's working on the brochure right now.  She said it will run from the last week of June through August, a 7-week program.  There are 3, 4, and 5 day options and it runs from 9am -3pm.  Ages 3-6.

Sunnyside Montessori House of Children, SE 122nd in Happy Valley, 503-698-4203.  Summer Daycare open from 6:30 am to 6 pm, M-F from the beginning of July to the end of August.  Full day, includes lunch & 2 snacks, $450/month. Half day, includes lunch & 1 snack, $350/month. Daily rate, includes lunch & 2 snacks, $27/day. Hourly rate, $4/hour.  I got this info in December so it may need to be updated.  The school serves kids 3-6, potty trained, so I assume the summer camp does too.

International School, Language Immersion Summer Camp, ages 3 - 5th grade, Downtown, 503-226-2496.  There are four sessions, each 2 weeks, from June 19 to August 11. Themes are: Solar System, Forest Life, Planet Earth, and Exploring the Ocean. For older kids there are OMSI workshops with additional themes, trips to the zoo and to Waterfront Park, swimming at RiverPlace Athletic Club.  Half day sessions (2 weeks) are $300, full day $400 and daycare is available until 6pm.  Snacks are provided, but you must provide lunch.

Willowbrook Outdoor Summer Arts Program, 503-691-6132.  The program looks like a big, true summer camp, at a park in Tualatin, but it also accepts children as young as 3 year olds.  Looks interesting.  The sessions run from June 26 to August 4, M-F, 9am-3:15pm. Drama & Theater, Music, Dance, Arts, Crafts, Nature, Writing, World Arts, Ceramics, Basketry, Weaving, Photography.  Attend weekly or daily, full or half day, aftercare is available.

This would be for little kids, but we just enrolled Clara (age 2.5 right now) in Rowenberry Preschool's summer art program for August. It's 9-1, three days a week. She'll go there in the fall, too, and we're really in love with this place.

Thanks for the feedback, Kat! We've added some info on Rowanberry's summer program here: http://urbanmamas.typepad.com/urbanmamas/2006/03/summer_is_right_3.html

Rowanberry sounds great. Thanks for sharing your positive comments!

Definitely check out kids summer camps and other classes at One With Heart on Hawthorne.
My daughter trains with such wonderful and supportive teachers there. Poekoelan (INdonesian kung fu) is a very important part of her spiritual, emotional and physical growth

The Best Montessori School and Best Day Care in Clackamas. I would like to share with other Moms my great experience with Sunnyside Montessori House of Children. The school is super clean, the staff is great, and the teachers are incredible! Mrs. Gurursinghe, the owner, cares about each and every kid. My little one is almost 5 and she can read, write and count to 100! The have parties for the kids; they do a Thanksgiving and a Christmas celebration. They teach them values and structure, they have music class and play time. I will not put my girl in public a public school until she has to go to 1st grade. Kindergarten in a public school would hold her back.
If any one wants to contact them, here is their info SE 122nd in Happy Valley, 503-698-4203. I wish I would have found them sooner! A grateful Mom. 01/14/09
