Spring Break Camp

Austin Montessori School offers an elementary Spring Break Camp each year. Children enjoy a week of relaxation, outdoor play, gardening, and crafts.
Program Hours: 8:30am-5:00pm
Elementary Summer Program
We are closely monitoring rapidly evolving COVID-19 events and will determine in mid to late May whether camp schedules need to be modified. Our primary concern is the safety and well-being of our staff, campers, and community. As we gain clarity on what sessions might be affected, we will be in communication with families. We will provide full refunds should any camp or class not proceed. We know our campers are eager to return for another great summer, and we are hopeful that this will happen.
For Ages 6-12
A different take on summer camp, Slow Austin Summer is a program designed to return summer to what it was always meant to be, while providing a more relaxed environment for your child to learn in an authentic way. The philosophy behind Slow Austin Summer is to try to create an experience that more closely resembles what a summer at home would be like for a child. Each week has one area of focused exploration and plenty of time for self-directed activity. Our camps are led by both AMI-trained guides, experienced assistants, and alumni with support from a student from our Adolescent Community at Gaines Creek.
Each week of camp has an Early Elementary and Upper Elementary session with fifteen campers at each level. The topics of these sessions are determined by the team of counselors based on the things they love to do and teach, with materials for a wide variety of options for play and work beyond the focus of the week. The small group size allows for a more intimate experience, and the time and space to allow new friendships to form. The groups share the outdoor space to give all campers the opportunity to play and interact with each other. While both groups have some Going Outs, many of the Upper Elementary camps travel multiple days a week to go out into the world and experience the things they are studying.
