Riverside Summer Programs


Our littlest campers have big fun in our Summer Programs. Join us this summer!

Riverside Summer Camp Programs embrace the same philosophy as Dwight School, which customizes the experience for each student based on individual interests and passions. Through a wide range of age-appropriate programming children can explore, discover what they enjoy doing, and pursue that passion while also making friends and having fun!

Riverside Summer Camp 2022

Summer programming is designed for current Dwight Preschool students ages 2-5. Classes are grouped by age and led by our preschool & kindergarten teachers. Children enjoy hands-on, creative activities, both indoors and outdoors, and lessons are planned around weekly themes.

If you have any questions or would like more information about the program, please email Clara Mendez at cmendez@dwight.edu.

Schedule

  • Four days per week from June 21-July 28 (closed the week of July 4)
  • 8:30 am-12:30 pm
  • Ages 2.5-5.5 

Summer Small Wonder Program (Ages 1-2.5)

Small Wonder is Dwight's “grown-up and me” preschool-readiness summer program for students and their trusted adults. Classes include art, music, gym activities, story time, and so much more! Space is limited and enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis.

Our Philosophy

Riverside Summer Camp Programs embrace the same philosophy as Dwight School, which customizes the experience for each student based on individual interests and passions. We call this igniting the “spark of genius” in every child. Through a wide range of age-appropriate programs ― including our specialty “spark” camps ― children can explore, discover what they enjoy doing, and pursue that passion while also making friends and having fun.
