Summer Camps in Northwest DC, Bethesda, MD & Oakton, VA (202) 625-1921

Our History

Brendan Sullivan founded The Headfirst Companies in 1996 with the mission of inspiring the personal best in high potential kids. Years later, Headfirst Summer Camps’ award-winning camp programs have earned the reputation as the best summer camps in Washington, DC and Bethesda, MD, impacting the experience of thousands of young campers as they grow and develop along their journey.

Brendan Sullivan is a Washington, DC native and resident — and the company was founded on the fields of his high school in the District. Brendan attended Stanford University and pitched on the Cardinal baseball team before being drafted and playing with the San Diego Padres organization in the Minor Leagues through Triple-A.

Since The Headfirst Companies’ inception, we’ve been built on the foundational mission of providing programming and structure based on the principles of optimism and self-efficacy to help campers become their best selves. A safe, nurturing and growth-oriented environment led by an engaged staff of counselors and coaches encourages campers to create and broaden their experience and discover new passions. Central to our mission is creating an atmosphere in which campers across all stages of personal development tap into their passions, establish leadership presence and realize their potential — all while enabling campers to create their “Best day ever” along their journey.

The Headfirst Companies are proud to partner as the official provider of Boston Red Sox Baseball Camps, Chicago Cubs Baseball Summer Camps, Washington Nationals Baseball Summer Camps, Atlanta Braves Camps and New York Yankees Baseball Summer Camps in the Boston, Chicago, DC, Atlanta and New York Metropolitan areas. Campers ages 5-13 enjoy a “Major League Experience” and the same foundation and mission of developing each player’s personal potential — as a player and as a person. Call us at 202-625-1921 for more information.

There are many different roles at Headfirst Camps, but there is only one single purpose for each and every one of us: to make certain all campers who attend a Headfirst Camp program have one of the most memorable and fun learning experiences of their lives.
