We take summer fun super seriously.

At Headfirst Summer Camps, we share one important ultimate goal with you, our camp families. Every mind-blowing experiment, every heart-pumping race, every whoa-that-was-awesome challenge is designed to unlock your child’s personal best.

Whether it’s Multi-Sport Camp, Day Camp, STEM or Single Sport Camp, we meticulously pack every day with experiences that bring kids closer to who they will someday become. By giving them the tools to help them find their personal best now, their future self will be that much more prepared to take on the world. And while all this life-shaping magic is happening — your kid will be having a seriously fun time.

Each of our convenient summer camp locations in Washington, DC, Bethesda, MD, and Oakton, Virginia does everything above by offering you everything below.

EVERY KID’S A CAPTAIN

Curriculum created by child development experts

WHEN THEIR INNER LEADER IS AWAKENED.

Child development experts have designed our curriculum to empower campers with skills such as resiliency, optimism, grit and emotional mastery. Ready, set, thrive.

OUR TEAM IS STACKED

Highest retention rate of counselors and camp leadership

ONLY THE BEST COUNSELORS MAKE THE CUT.

Our culture screams positive energy. So we make sure our staff does, too. (Well, not literally.) We fill our camp counselor roster with early childhood development professionals and top notch talent who exude passion for working with kids.

SAFETY 1ST & 2ND & 3RD

One of the best safety records in the business

• If It Were Safe to Go Overboard With Safety, We Would.

Our camp counselors and staff don’t mess around when it comes to our industry-leading policies that protect your child. Our record is impressive, and we plan to keep it that way.

NO SWEAT

Camp should be fun and easy for parents too!

HAPPY KIDS + HAPPY PARENTS = CAMP VICTORY

We sweat every tiny detail to offer a level of convenience that keeps you sweat-free. Even carpool feels like a party when it’s done the Headfirst way. High energy for the kids, easy for you.

WE’LL FLEX FOR YOU

Bus Service, Extended Day, Daily Enrollments – we adjust to your schedule

OUR BRAIN MUSCLES, OF COURSE.

Family reunions, out of town visitors, general summer scheduling snafus — we’ve solved every unexpected “oops” before it’s even occurred. Extended day, bus service, and adjustable start dates for our day camps are just a taste of our seamless, flexi-style.

BEST SUMMER EVER

Campers come back – summer after summer!

UNTIL NEXT SUMMER.

High retention is how we roll. From campers to counselors, goodbyes are only temporary at Headfirst Camps. History proves we’ll see you next summer. And the one after that. And the one after that.

Thank you for providing a wonderful camp experience for my son. Eli participated in Multi-Sport Camp for seven weeks this summer. He had an awesome time. Every day he came home and told me about the goals he had scored, the games he had played, the silliness of the counselors and just the fun he had. Linda A.
We have done all kinds of summer camps, and Headfirst is by far the best organized. The digital lost and found is particularly helpful. We love the values of leadership and responsibility that Headfirst promotes and would like our kids to continue having positive Headfirst experiences. Kimberly J.
Thank you for the best week of the summer, according to my 7 year old son! He loved every minute, and you all made him feel such a part of this amazing team experience. He gained confidence and was so happy all week. I will be recommending this camp to all our friends, and you’ll see Charlie again next year! Dawn S.
My sons have been attending Headfirst Summer Camps for three summers now, and they love them! The counselors and instruction are top-notch, and my boys always come home with smiles and great stories about their day. Thanks for providing such a fun, safe and positive summer experience for my kids year after year! Missy C.
The kids completed their final week of camp today and really had an absolute blast! Having a great staff really is the key and Headfirst proved that at every turn. From the counselors who greeted us each morning to those who put two exhausted kids into the car each afternoon with big smiles on their faces...truly an exceptional team! Mieka W.
