When school is out for a holiday, parents can rely on holiday camp to keep their kids engaged and having fun. The Portland Montessori School offers affordable and fun holiday camps that run from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM during the school year for primary and elementary aged students.

Holiday camps often have a defining experience. For example, one day camp may focus on cooking, so students will make bread from scratch. On another day, camp may emphasize music or art, and may include a visit from a guest musician or artist.
Holiday camp is open to our students, but we also welcome appropriate-aged children from other schools. We provide a healthy morning and afternoon snack as well as organic milk. Campers bring their own lunch.

"The Portland Montessori School is a school with a heart. Each year, parents raise money to sustain scholarships that make the dream of a Montessori education a reality for families who could not otherwise afford it. That shows the true spirit of community at our school."
"At The Portland Montessori School, our kids learn to use buttons, tie their shoes, juice an orange, crack nuts and cut bananas, clean up after themselves, identify odd and even numbers, sew, set their place at the table, pour their own milk, understand the value of numbers into the thousands, and identify continents and countries on a map—and have fun doing it all!"
"If it's true what Maria Montessori said, that the test of the correctness of an educational approach is the happiness of the child, then this school is succeeding beyond our wildest dreams. Both our boys are so happy to go to school and so proud of their work."
"I am so happy that my son is spending his kindergarten year in a Montessori environment where his knowledge, self-control, kindness, sense of purpose, and confidence have all grown by leaps and bounds."
"I have taught in public schools for the past ten years, including six years in kindergarten, and I can attest that Montessori is different, special, and provides an optimum setting for children's growth and development."
