About

Near North Montessori is a powerful educational experience more than 50 years strong. Together, we work to create a warm, welcoming community where young hearts and minds take flight.  Stay for one week or the entire summer with camp for children ages 3-10.  Splash, play and dance your way through the hottest months of year at one of Chicago’s only full-day camps for preschoolers.  Weekly adventures await campers as they explore everything from Lego Robotics to growing crops at our Urban Farm and then cooking with them.  Experience a summer like no other.
