KMS Summer Camps 2017

Our mission is to provide a summer camp where all campers participate in the creative, independent, social, learning community.

Come join us at  KMS this summer for fun and adventure for children age 5-11! At KMS you will find 2-week and 4-week options for compelling, innovative, solution based, amazing camp sessions with old and new friends. Our experienced, KMS Trained teachers and counselors will focus on getting to know each camper. Together everyone will delve deeper into topics as co-learners.

This summer a part of each of our sessions focus will include :

  • field trips –  2 to 4 out-and-about in San Francisco
  • Songs
  • music
  • language
  • dance
  • games
  • art

All our campers will mingle to connect and introduce all ages to each other, encouraging a “we are all friends at KMS” summer community.

Campers who come for consecutive sessions will get an adjusted program to continue their interests, topic knowledge growth and connection to the group and to the teachers.

“KMS rocks – love the 2 week camps – too much shuffling during the summer with 1-wk camps, likes building stronger relationships with kids and teacher.”
-2015 Parent

“My Daughter loved the different themed camps and especially the field trips”

“We feel comfortable and confident leaving our son with you.  He loves the “teachers” and playing /having fun.  He is really, really looking forward to coming back next summer.  We will miss you all between now and then!”

“I love that my son can be in the same location /camp for the whole summer without repeating the same lessons each week.  It allows him to build on his knowledge with each session.”
