Summer fun overflows on the beautiful Friends School of Baltimore campus for the eight weeks of Summer at Friends, June 19th to August 11th.
Maria Montessori’s use of the term, ‘The Mathematical Mind,’ refers to the unique tendencies of the human mind, such as order, exactness, exploration, and orientation.
Summer at Friends offers a variety of educational and recreational day camps for boys and girls ages 4 through 13. Led by energetic and enthusiastic staff who love working with kids, campers form friendships and discover the joy of learning new skills in a safe, supportive environment.
Ceramists know something very important. It’s that clay, any way you slice it, is fun. And while for many adults, thinking of pottery making still recalls the famous scene from the movie Ghost (could be worse, right?), there’s an entire world of history, ecology, and craft that goes into making things out of clay. Baltimore Clayworks has been the local hub for Baltimore ceramics enthusiasts for the past 36 years. Through their Mt. Washington campus and community sites in under-resourced neighborhoods across the region, Baltimore Clayworks has brought the joy of clay to adults and children alike through innumerable classes, workshops, events and exhibitions. This summer, Baltimore Clayworks will be offering ten 1-week long summer camps for kids and teens, each with a different theme. They’re open to kids ages 6-15, and believe us, they’re all awesome.
(Ages 4-15 years)
Nature Camps at Ladew Gardens provide a unique, fun and educational experience for children

Staffed by adult naturalists, an art instructor and a former school teacher, we provide a low teacher to camper ratio to ensure a safe environment and individualized attention.
More and more, when it comes to holiday gifts, Americans are asking for experiences, rather than things.
The world has become a fast paced and stressful place these days. Technology has made things easier at the same time more stressful. Kids today have no down time to just let their brains clear. This is why summer camp is so needed today.
More and more, when it comes to holiday gifts, Americans are asking for experiences, rather than things. Even kids are catching on to the fact that a new toy or video game can easily be replaced by the next cool gadget or toy trend. But an amazing experience (like, say, a week of Ripken Baseball Camp) is something that they’ll be sure to treasure for a long, long time. Reserve a spot in a 2016 camp before December 17th and receive a 10% discount as well as a free Ripken t-shirt. It’s the perfect gift for the young baseball fan in your life. And when you stick that Ripken t-shirt under the tree, they’re even getting some instant, wearable gratification.
