The fall camping experience is SO much more than a mere field trip. It is a way to provide our children with a taste of Maria Montessori’s vision for adolescents, her “erdkinder.”
- provides the opportunity for students to develop independence, interdependence, and self-reliance
- fosters new relationships between students, their teachers, and the environment
- allows freedom to act on individual initiative within limits and rules that give necessary guidance
- fosters in students the power of self-adjustment to new environments
- opens us all to the wonders of nature
- helps students to understand their place in the world.
During camp week, students will participate in:
- Tent set-up, care and clean-up
- Planning, preparing, cooking and clean-up of meals
- Living together in the close confines of a tent with new classmates
- Activities that provide opportunities for cooperation and fun rather than competition
This year, students will be camping at Stone Mountain State Park in Roaring Gap, NC.
