This summer camp features a unique, high-quality program for all children ages 3-10 who enjoy learning about global affairs and international cultures in a hands-on, peaceful and intercultural way.
To get under way Monday, the Culture Camp hours will be 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose Room at the local YMCA located at 220 Urbane Road. Cost is $100 per child.
The main goal of Montessori Kinder’s Culture Camp is to raise cultural awareness by traveling virtually around the globe in 10 days. Camp kids will learn about other cultures, their traditions, languages, geography, clothing, housing and foods. This year’s itinerary will include visits in countries like Brazil, India, Argentina, Egypt, Australia, Austria, Japan, Ethiopia and Bulgaria.
Culture Camp participants work together in groups, directed by qualified Montessori staff. Every group offers a stimulating, carefully planned environment for learning. The materials used during Culture Camp are designed to provide a wide variety of experiences, integrating all academic areas to provide a balanced learning experience.
“Our entire team is looking forward to Culture Camp and we are especially proud to collaborate on this program with the Cleveland Family YMCA and the Trousdale School,” Montessori Kinder Director Brigitta Hoeferle said. “Culture Camp has been a staple of our school’s annual events. Given the increasingly diversified demographics in Cleveland, Bradley County and the surrounding areas, we are glad to introduce our students to skills that all of us need: Awareness, appreciation and mutual respect for other cultures.”
