Elementary Camping Trip

Elementary Parents: Mark your Calendars for the Elementary Class Camping Trip!


Our 2nd through 6th graders will be headed to the Dunes Learning Center this April for their annual camping trip on April 22 – 24, 2020.

We’re very excited to visit this campus and support one of the newest National Parks.  The Dunes Learning Center is able to provide this opportunity to schools because of the support the center gets from outside donors.  Our trip is available to us as an opportunity because of the Alphawood Foundation in Chicago.  Thank you very much for making trips like this possible for Wheaton Montessori School’s Elementary class!


The Elementary class rotates between three locations for the annual camping trip.  In the past, we’ve visited Mammoth Cave National Park in Kentucky, Cahokia Mounds and The Lincoln Presidential Library in Illinois, and Devil’s Lake and the International Crane Foundation in Wisconsin.  These trips provide on-site education and research opportunities as well as travel experience.
