Summer Camps at Parkside

Parkside Community School - Austin Texas Montessori School

This summer, Parkside will be the site of several camp opportunities, with something for everyone, Primary through Upper Elementary! Each of these camps is presented by the people and organizations listed below, so all questions and other communications should be directed to the contacts for each specific camp. Parkside is acting as the host site only, but we are excited to see so many children enjoying our campus this summer!
