Register your child in Mount Madonna School’s Mountain of Fun summer day camps! Explore our 375 acre campus, nestled in the redwood forest of Mount Madonna, just a few miles down the road from Mount Madonna County Park between Gilroy and Watsonville. Take a virtual tour of Mount Madonna School.
Each camp program encourages and promotes creativity, cooperation and community building; and helps to foster campers’ self-discovery, empathy and compassion in action. Campers will develop their social, emotional, cognitive and physical skills while building lasting friendships in an outdoor setting!
MMS follows all COVID safety precautions and guidelines as directed from the CDC, the State of California, as well as the local health department. Social distancing and masks are required at all times. All programs are taught by experienced Mount Madonna School (MMS) teachers.
Safe transportation (additional fees apply) is available from Aptos, Corralitos, Gilroy and Morgan Hill.
Campers remain on the school campus all day; or may choose to participate in our afternoon horsemanship program (additional fees apply) at Mt. Madonna Stables (located just down the road from campus – transportation is included with this portion of the program).
