Our Story

     Camp Pawpaw is the brainchild of two passionate educators and community members, Maya and Keith. As staff at Sands Montessori, they recognized a need in their community for a summer camp that provided a fun and enriching experience for kids, while also addressing the issue of summer learning loss.

Maya, the school nurse, and Keith, the community outreach director, were committed to creating a camp that would be accessible to all kids, regardless of their background or financial situation. They knew that summer should be a time of fun and exploration, but also recognized that the summer break could lead to a loss of academic progress for many students.


     With their shared vision, Maya and Keith put their resources to work and created Camp Pawpaw. The camp is designed to provide a holistic summer experience that includes fun outdoor activities, engaging academic lessons, and character building exercises.

The name "Pawpaw" was inspired by the pawpaw tree, a symbol of resilience and growth. Maya and Keith believe that all kids have the potential to thrive, and that the right environment can help them achieve their goals.


     Camp Pawpaw is located on the beautiful Sands Montessori campus, with access to green spaces, playgrounds, and modern facilities. The camp offers a range of activities, including sports, arts and crafts, STEM projects, and outdoor adventures. With a team of dedicated and experienced counselors, Camp Pawpaw provides a safe and welcoming environment for kids to learn, grow, and make new friends.


     Maya and Keith are thrilled to offer this incredible opportunity to kids in their community. They hope that Camp Pawpaw will inspire a love of learning, foster new skills, and create lasting memories for all who attend.
