Cardigan Mountain School Summer Session
The perfect balance between academic enrichment and summertime fun for boys and girls ages 8-15!
Cardigan Summer Session is not a traditional summer camp OR a traditional summer school. Our mission is to provide the perfect balance between authentic learning, personal development, and summertime fun. Each morning, our students take 5 classes ranging from traditional courses like SSAT Prep, Stories & Poems: Seuss to Shakespeare, CSI: Forensics, to electives such as Mixed Media Art, Dance, and Wilderness Adventures. With a student teacher ratio of 3:1, our class sizes are small and students may choose from over 50 course offerings, creating a personalized, structured learning environment that is both innovative and fun. In the afternoon, we take full advantage of our beautiful lakeside campus with a variety of activities, including stand-up paddle boarding, swimming, tennis, mountain biking, yoga, soccer, and overnight wilderness trips. At night, we welcome performers to campus, engage in all-school competitions, enjoy campfire skits, and bond as a group during dormitory initiatives. By “lights out,” our students are ready for a good night’s rest after a very full day. At the conclusion of Summer Session, lifelong friendships have formed and students return home with an expanded academic skill set, a broader experience of community and culture, and the joy of having been away at summer camp!
