Summer Camps 

MCPC provides summer programs when our preschool is not in session; mid-June through July.  Turtle Camp is for children ages 2¾ to 3¾ years old (primarily incoming preschoolers), and the Preschool Summer Program is for children ages 3½ to 5½ years old. Preschool Summer Camp enrollment opens April 10. Turtle Camp enrollment becomes available to non-MCPC children on May 15, per the director's discretion. One parent per family is asked to spend one day during their summer session assisting our summer program teachers as a working parent.

Turtle Summer Camp

This is a great opportunity for your child to make the transition to a “drop off” program. Each parent will volunteer to work and bring snack one day during the session to help keep a very low student to teacher ratio. A maximum of 12 children, ages 2 ¾ to 3 ¾ years, may enroll. Your child must turn three by September 1 of this year in order to be eligible for the Turtle Summer Camp. Priority is given to incoming preschoolers until May 1.

Preschool Summer Camp

MCPC operates as a parent cooperative during the school year, but opens its doors to the children of the community for its annual Summer Camp. A maximum of 25 children, ages 3 1/2 to 5 1/2 years, may enroll in each session. Priority is given to current preschoolers until April 10th, and previous outside care experience is required.

Both sessions are three-week programs that meet Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 9am - 12:30pm. Optional extended days are offered Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 12:30 - 3pm.
