Spring Break Camps

2024 Spring Break Camps (April 1-5)

Applications for 2024 Spring Break Camp now available!

Mountaintop's SEED (1-6 grade) and Sprout (age 3-kindergarten) camps are offered during Charlottesville and Albemarle County Public Schools' spring break each year.

Children spend their time sowing seeds in the garden, harvesting greenhouse and early-producing crops, and exploring Mountaintop's beautiful campus as it buds and blossoms for another growing year. Spring is a great time to be here working in the garden and greenhouse and we love to share this peak time for planting with friends from all over the area.

Each group has a classroom to call home for the week, an environment carefully prepared with materials to entice and inspire campers' ecological exploration.
