The “Apple Magic” thrives in the face of a fast-changing world. Apple Montessori campers love the exciting and enriching environment for both in-person and virtual instruction. “We learned a lot when we opened Apple Montessori Schools’ summer camp in 2020—and we’re making 2021 a summer experience children will never forget,” says Regional Director Kellie Capatasto.
Apple has schools throughout North and Central New Jersey. Each day is filled with learning adventures such as coding, robotics, music, drama, arts, sports and daily Montessori lessons, among many more. Daily programs—like Innovators & Explorers, Tech Time, Crafts & Creations— are fun and educational, so campers are well-prepared for the school year ahead. Apple follows the guidance from federal, state, and local governments for drop-offs, building entry, deep cleaning, social distancing and face coverings. All materials and surfaces are cleaned and sanitized frequently; and Apple has also enhanced training and protocols for staff. “The dedication of those staffers—an Apple point of pride every year—is even more important in today’s world,” Capatasto says.
“The teachers, assistants and staff working at summer camp are the same staff who work during the school year,” she adds. “The people we hire in the summer continue with us in the fall. This continuity and familiarity are so good for the children. That’s the beauty of it.” Apple’s summer camp is nonstop learning and fun for eight weeks with a three-week minimum commitment. Full-day schedules offer before- and after-care. There are also half-day programs. Some facilities have splash pads while others have pools with daily swim lessons by Red Cross certified instructors.
