Summer is a special time of year. Actually, it’s one of our favorites at Baan Dek. While we maintain the philosophy and spirit of Montessori, we switch gears just a bit, carefully curating a wide selection of unique camps designed to encompass the joy of learning. Each week will be an entirely different educational experience, devoted to a brand new subject. One week will be dedicated to learning about rocket ships, while the next week will be spent exploring art or animals. We can’t wait to see what you choose. We’re so excited to get started!
