Why Choose MFS Summer Camp Programs?

Our teachers…Our campus…Our attention to detail…Our personal touch

MFS Summer Programs offers a variety of weekly classes for children ages 3 – 17.  Spend a week immersed in robotics, Chinese language, watercolor, forensic science, Mock Trial, Scuba Diving, and more!  The majority of our Master Teachers are our own MFS teachers who are advanced professionals in their field of study.

Using classrooms, fields, courts, and resources on our 48-acre campus allows us to provide the best experience and most memorable summer for your child. Most every class is specifically designed each year with new curriculum which makes for a fun and engaging classroom session.

As a Quaker Day school, we are proud to extend those values into the fabric of our summer programming. Our weekly community-building activities are fun and offer a unique way to support each other with regard to collaboration, teamwork, and self-awareness.
