Welcome to Summer at CMSAA !
Summer is just around the corner, and we’re gearing up for camp! We’re introducing new themes and will be incorporating even more outdoor nature exploration this summer. Throughout each week campers will help tend our backyard garden, go on nature hikes, work with arts and crafts, have plenty of water play, and be involved with lots of movement activities. Each session our themes will help guide what we read, play, and create together
