Summer Camp

Summer Campers cool off in a pool.

Montessori School of Durham provides a quality and fun summer camp experience for your child. With options for children 3 years old - 7th grade, students will express creativity while refining artistic skills in art and pottery camps, delve into the world of musical theater, study felines and canines in "little veterinarian school," practice martial arts, and more!

Monday – Friday, Morning Camps (9:00 – 12:00), Afternoon Camps (12:00 – 4:00), or All-Day Camps (9:00 – 4:00)


Before Care (8:00-9:00) and After Care (until 5:30) is also available. In registering for a morning camp, you will have the option to sign up for Before Camp care for the week. To add extended afternoon care, select a "Stay and Play camp," with options from 12-3, 12-4, or 12-5:30.

All summer programs scheduled for June will not take place. We are disappointed not to be able to provide these upcoming camps for the children but come to this decision in the interest of the safety of our children and staff. If you have paid all or a portion of your child's weekly June Summer Camp fees through UltraCamp, your account will be refunded within the next 3 weeks and any scheduled payments will be deleted.  In regards to the remainder of the summer, we will update you according to the following schedule:

  • Plans for July summer programs will be announced by June 12th.   
  • Plans for August summer programs will be announced by July 15th.

We are working closely with the North Carolina Association of Independent Schools (NCAIS) as well as NCAIS member Heads of Schools around the state and locally to arrive at policies, protocols, and safety practices in all areas of our operations, many of which will be guided by the NCDHHS and the CDC.

Toddler & Early Childhood Summer Programs

Our Toddler and Early Childhood Summer Programs provide students a continuation of the school year in the classrooms with the freedom to choose work that follows their interests. Our teachers lead these programs to maintain momentum from the school year, giving small and large group lessons with the Montessori materials. Children will choose work from the shelves, garden, and participate in outside water activities and art projects.
