Discover the MCDS Community

Our auxiliary programs are comprised of after school clubs, aquatics, summer programs and our Student Success Network. We offer options for children with various interests which run over the course the year and camps that take place throughout the summer.​
The components that make up our auxiliary programs unite to help shape the whole child; we let each student find their passions by exposing them to different ideas.​
We strive to help our community continue to learn, be creative, explore and dive into something new. ​​
Our auxiliary programs are all available to Miami Country Day School students. We enthusiastically open up our campus and facilities to the public for our Summer Camp and Community Clubs.

Jacquline Niang
Director of Auxiliary Programs
“I have a passion for creativity, meeting new people and community. These are all things that inspire me, and I get to live these out daily in my work. To me, Miami Country Day school stands for community, and when people work together for a great cause, in this case to support the work of educating students, it is something I love being a part of.”

Summer Camp​

Miami Country Day School recognizes how summertime provides a chance to build on the important lessons of the school year in a fun, relaxed environment. Children in or outside of Miami Country Day School can take part in various camps along the Biscayne Canal in the community of Miami Shores. Camps explore interests like arts, math, sports and much more.
Now, 82 years after the school’s founding and 94 years since the start of Camp Cloudmont, our summer opportunities include coed sports, specialty camps, travel programs, academic courses and, of course, our ever-popular Day Camp. Our founders knew that learning does not end with the academic year.

      "The tutoring that MCDS offers is incredible. The staff, specifically Valerie, enabled me to reach for the stars and get the score I wanted, despite my constant frustration. She pushed me to be my very best and push outside of my comfort zone. Not only was she my tutor, but she was way more than that- she is now one of my best friends who I look to for advice on anything. She got me into the college I wanted to, when even at times I thought I would never make it to where I am today and I definitely have that to thank Valerie for."
