Great River School | Kids Out and About Minneapolis/St. Paul

Great River School

Great River School, an urban Montessori learning community, runs 7 weeks of day camp in the summer. Our camps are a fun way for your camper to spend a week exploring, building, learning, moving, creating, and having a blast! Great River School, a Montessori learning community, prepares students for their unique roles as responsible and engaged citizens of the world.

At GRS, we treat each other and our environment with respect, and we are focused on being safe while having fun. We are open to all people from everywhere. No Montessori or Great River School experience necessary for a great summer here.  We have a variety of camps that focus on nature, art, science, ultimate, robotics, books and more!  You are bound to find something your camper enjoys.

All GRS Camps run Monday-Thursday. Half-day camp hours are 9am-12pm and 1pm-4pm. You can combine a morning session with an afternoon session and join us for lunch if you'd like! Full-day camps run from 9pm-4pm. We don't know what the health data will look like in summer, but we ran a safe and fun camp in 2020, so we already have our systems set up and ready to go.

We have a few new additions to our camp this year:  

  • First, we are designing camps by grade instead of age.  We’ll have camps for Pre-K/K (minimum of 4 years old), 1st-3rd, 4th-7th, 7th-10th, and 9th-12th.  When registering, use the grade your camper is going into for the fall of 2022.  

  • Lots of cool new camps such as Building Your Own Longboard, Sailing, and camps that drop off and pick up at Como Park.

  • We are also adding a Friday Fun Day for families that need that extra day of child care.  You can add this on to your week during the registration process.  This will be from 9:00-4:00 and for 1st-7th graders.  We will take a variety of walking field trips every week.

  • Schedules for the majority of the camps will be available prior to the start day so you’ll know what to ask about when you pick your camper up every day.

We are dedicated to making summer camp possible and affordable for all through our early-bird pricing, sibling discount, multi-program discount and our scholarship program. 

 

All GRS Camps run Monday-Thursday with optional Fridays. Half-day camp hours are 9am-12pm and 1pm-4pm. You can combine a morning session with an afternoon session and join us for lunch if you'd like! Full-day camps run from 9pm-4pm.
