Our History

Headfirst was started in 1996 with the vision of providing top-notch sports and summer camp programs for boys and girls in the Washington, DC area. Years later, Headfirst’s award-winning day camps have earned the reputation as the best summer camps in Washington, DC and Bethesda, MD, making a difference in the lives of thousands of young campers while providing them with exceptional summer experiences they will remember for a lifetime.

Headfirst’s founder 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 its inception, Headfirst has been based on a mission to enrich the lives of children by simultaneously fostering fun and building character through our exceptional sports and summer camp programs nationwide. We want every attending camper, player, counselor, coach and family to take away lessons based in positive energy, maximized effort, self-confidence and leadership. The camp slogan says it all: “Play Smart. Have Fun!”

Headfirst Camps is the official provider of Boston Red Sox Baseball Camps, Chicago Cubs Baseball Summer Camps, Washington Nationals Baseball Summer Camps and New York Yankees Baseball Summer Camps in the Boston, Chicago, DC and New York Metropolitan areas. Campers ages 5-13 enjoy a “Major League Experience” with first-rate coaching, VIP tours and the opportunity to meet an MLB player. Call us at 202-625-1921 for more information.
