Monica Ros School Summer Camp 2021

Monica Ros School feels confident in our ability, as a small school with long-term staff, to provide quality programming with increased health and safety measures. All CDC guidelines for childcare programs will be strictly adhered to. All campers will be kept in small groups with no co-mingling between groups. Outdoor areas will be cleaned between group’s use. Staff and students will be required to wear masks. Contrary to Monica Ros’ usual atmosphere of community, we will require that campers are dropped off at the gate each morning; parents are not invited on campus at this time.
Thank you for understanding! 

June 21 – July 30
9:00am – 2:00pm Camp Day (slightly staggered for different camper groups)

783 McNell Road, Ojai, CA  93023

The Nuts & Bolts
We ask that children attending camp are three years old (and toilet-independent), up through those entering 4th grade this fall. We are opening 2021 Summer Camp to currently enrolled families first to best serve our community, and space-allowing will then open up enrollment to the rest of the community. Campers will be separated by age to allow for the most secure and comfortable range of exploration.  Our kind, qualified staff are all Monica Ros employees with years of experience.  Camp cost is $325/week. A second camper in a family is discounted to $275/week. Current Monica Ros families may charge camp fees to their school account, other camper’s fees are due before camp begins. We apologize that no daycare is available after camp.


2021 Themes

First Week: June 21- June 25

Tackling creativity in our modern world. Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. We will host a  variety of STEAM projects, games and challenges. Activities to stimulate the mind and spark curiosity. Fun for all ages and appealing to the budding mathematician in us all.

“Music in the Mountains”
Second Week: June 28- July 2

Drums, noisemaking and songs to tame the wildest beast! This week we will learn what makes music so universally special. We will enjoy making music with our own recycled instruments and with the oldest instrument of all- the body. In doing so, we will learn the rhythms of nature and ourselves.

“Artistic Adventures”
Third Week: July 5- July 9

Get ready to get messy! Please dress your child accordingly, parents. This is the week for your children to paint, sculpt and design with unabashed creativity. Prepare yourselves for a bag full of creations by the end of these five days. We will have an adventure!

“Magical Creatures”
Fourth Week: July 12- July 16

This week we look forward to expanding our imaginations and discovering the difference between a manticore and a hippogriff. What makes a unicorn so special? We also can’t wait to create our very own magical creatures! Prepare yourselves to be blown away by the discoveries we will make.

“Playful Pets”
Fifth Week:  July 19- July 23

We all know and love the critters we adopt into our families: cuddly kittens, playful puppies, tenacious turtles and bouncy birds! It will be hard to resist marching along in our pet parade, giggling at our stuffy animal zoo or dancing to our favorite songs. Mewow!

“Storytime Journeys”
Sixth Week:  July 26- July 30

How do we tell a tale? How does one make a story special? We will take a deep dive into literature and discover why we love stories so much. Learn about genres, authors, how books are made and why books are the best! Children will try creative storytelling and together we will go on a journey.
