Westmont Montessori Camps 2024

Introducing, The Yurt Experience at Westmont Montessori!

Our Nature Camps are held on our beautiful campus in the community of Metchosin – connected directly to Witty’s Lagoon, Sitting Lady Falls and the beach.

Our camp days will be spent in one of our two yurts, exploring the outdoors in nature and venturing off-campus on various educational and recreational excursions. Camp hours are from 8:30am to 4:00pm.

Westmont is excited to announce that due to numerous requests from families, we will be hosting Pro-D Camps this year for Elementary and Early Years students in addition to our winter, spring and summer break camps!

Westmont Camps promise to deliver an engaging and enriching experience, offering children a productive and enjoyable educational experience beyond the traditional classroom setting. Camps provide a unique opportunity for children to explore a wide range of activities and learning experiences. 

The Five Pillars of Westmont’s Camps include Mindfulness, The Arts, Life Skills, Wellness & Play. Your child can look forward to participating in various activities and workshops tailored towards developing in these areas. Our activities foster personal growth, artistic expression, life skill development, health and well-being, and community development. 

We’re thrilled to offer this opportunity and look forward to a fantastic camp experience. All bookings can be done through the Univerus Rec booking system – accessible by the registration button below. You will receive a welcome email with specific details in advance of the camp week. 

The weekly investment for our Spring Break camp is set at $325 for early years children and $300 for elementary aged children. The weekly investment will increase slightly to $333 per child beginning in Summer 2024.

Spring & Summer Camps

Hi, I’m Tyler!

I am the Camp Supervisor & Developer at Westmont Montessori, and will be developing the programs for, and facilitating in, all of our camps. I also work throughout the school during the academic year as a substitute teacher & EA.

My formal education includes a bachelor’s degree in social work and psychology from Carleton University, and a social service worker diploma from Algonquin College in Ottawa, Ontario.

I have many additional certifications I have acquired in working with children & youth over the last decade. Most of my experience has been working within medical and governmental agencies in mental health care and child welfare.

Throughout this experience as a child and youth counsellor and social worker, I have utilized my skills to teach children and youth coping strategies for their mental well-being, practical life skills they’ll need as they grow older, the importance of physical activity and connecting to nature, and how to cooperate and thrive with the people in their community.

After relocating to Metchosin, BC in 2022, I began working in the education sector in a variety of private and public schools with children ages 3-16 years old. I gravitate towards nature, and I enjoy incorporating the experiences and energy of being located by the forest and sea into my work with children. I am passionate about therapeutic mindfulness and I always incorporate these natural regulation tools with children when dealing with difficult emotions.

I am particularly excited about the Five Pillars that I’ve developed for our Nature Camps at Westmont. I am always searching for feedback from children and parents to improve their experiences, and I hope you enjoy what we have planned!
