Summer Memories

The Maranatha Christian Schools Summer Program Allows Children to Learn, Grow, and Have Fun

The Maranatha Christian Schools Summer Program focuses on the whole child – from the academic, athletic, and artistic aspects to teaching students how they can make an impact in their community and world. “Our Christ-centered culture encourages a high level of dignity and respect, based on a solid foundation of integrity. Our desire is to see children achieving their highest potential with the gifts and talents God has given them,” said Julie Elliott, summer camp director. According to Elliott, class sizes are small and focused, offering the students dedicated time with teachers, staff, and other students. New friends are made and summer memories are created in a loving, safe, clean, and nurturing environment. In addition, all teachers are credentialed and have experience in education and leading special summer programs.


As you explore the Maranatha Christian Schools (MCS) summer offerings, you will find many different options. Morning and afternoon classes are available in math, English, dance, cooking, STEAM, and indoor and outdoor sports. In addition, there are also two classes specifically focused on helping students transition into Kindergarten and first grade. TK-8th grade summer camps and enrichment classes start June 24 and run through Aug. 2. There is a three-week commitment for all classes, with two separate sessions (June 24-July 12 and July 15-Aug. 2). Because of families’ busy schedules, MCS now has extended care available for an additional fee.
