2020 Summer Camps
Summer is an exciting time at LMPS! We offer seven enriching weeks of camp, led by our experienced and fun Sheri Godwin, Miss Jeanette, Miss Zoe and other staff. Each of the seven weeks will center on a different theme for indoor and outdoor center times to stretch the boundaries of your child's imagination. The camp week will be Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM. To 1:00 P.M., including lunch time (children will bring their own lunches). Curriculum will be packed with fun and purposeful play, so be prepared to see your child continue to blossom as they improve their math, science, social and literacy skills. You may enroll for any number of weeks. Enrollment is now open. See the attached registration form.
Camp dates and themes:

They will have the opportunity to create their very own time capsule. The week will end with a futuristic party.
