As the #1 summer camp program in the Washington, DC metropolitan area, Headfirst Camps offers more than a typical camp experience. Since 1996, our traditions and approach to teaching not only generate a positive environment, but also create a lasting impact on our campers’ personal growth and overall development—one that lasts well beyond their Headfirst Camp experience.
In particular, our all-camp morning and dismissal meetings are a Headfirst trademark, creating an atmosphere of leadership, positive energy, team spirit and an endless amount of fun and inspiration. From Monday morning to Friday afternoon, each meeting is strategically planned to build and foster unique relationships between our campers and counselors while emphasizing the Headfirst Camp philosophy.
All-camp meetings are held twice per day, once in the morning and once at dismissal. Meetings are appropriate for all ages, however, on occasion directors will dismiss one or some of the camp programs and/or older age groups depending on the topic of the meeting.
Each day at our all-camper assembly, we have a tradition of educating campers by promoting life-lesson and leadership skills. Please take a look at some of the short speeches we deliver each day at camp. We use the acronym L.E.A.D.E.R. and focus on 1 or 2 letters per day. Here are some example video clips:
