Come experience a truly dynamic atmosphere.

The Summer @ Riverbend Program’s innovative approach encourages children to explore their talents with confidence, strive for achievement and discover new ways of thinking in an environment founded on respect and collaboration.  Weekly sessions from June 15 – August 19.

Due to the COVID-19 health crisis, Summer at Riverbend’s start date has been delayed. Please follow our COVID-19 Response page and Weekly Community Updates for the latest information from the School.

The program⁠—held in Natick, MA and open to children 15 months* through rising 4th graders⁠—has been thoughtfully developed by Montessori staff, who are aware of the developmental growth and needs of children.

We offer half-day (9:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m.) and full-day (9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.) programs. We also offer extended care from 8:00 a.m.- 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.

Toddlers will enjoy a variety of age-specific activities with toddler-trained faculty including splashing in the splash pools, arts and crafts, music and more!

Primary children create new friendships, enjoying daily Arts instruction, crafts, splash pools and waterslides, sports instruction and more! Riverbend has a strong partnership with the Elm Bank Reservation and The Natick Organic Farm, which continues throughout the summer, giving children an opportunity to work with the experts and explore the great outdoors here on campus.

Our Lower Elementary (Juniors)  will be learning new skills and making new friendships, cooling off on our new, camp water slide and enjoying everything from inter-camp activities–such as obstacle course racing and camp Olympics, sports instruction, international cooking, paper mache, off campus walking trips to Elm Bank Reservation, scavenger hunts around historic South Natick, science projects, jewelry making, and gardening!
