Summer Camp registration is now available for children ages 5-11

Our 2-week summer sessions allow curious young learners to take an in depth look into the subjects they love. Families participate in camps all summer long to maintain consistency and allow children to engage with the environment more fully; unique from our school year curriculum but individual two week sessions are also beneficial. KMS is a Reggio Emilia inspired, experience based learning environment in a beautiful homelike building with plenty of outdoor access and opportunities to get dirty and have fun while learning. All campers participate together in a creative, social, and independent learning community that children thrive in. Our experienced teachers and counselors bring songs, music, language, dance, games and art into each session’s focus, along with several out-and-about in San Francisco field trips. Campers will have an opportunity to mingle with campers of all ages, encouraging a “we are all friends at KMS” summer community.

I love that my son can be in the same location /camp for the whole summer without repeating the same lessons each week. It allows him to build on his knowledge with each session.
