Headfirst Overnight Camp
Headfirst Overnight Camp is offered for three weeks at Episcopal High School and is designed to let our older campers stay on campus and experience the fun of sleep-away camp a little closer to home.

Campers may choose from our best-selling programs for their day program:
Connect. Create. Discover. – A progressive project-based program that uses cultures and time periods to focus on and engage through the core components of science and the arts.
STEM Camp – Through themes such as Coding, Robotics, Forensics and Physics, campers are encouraged to dig beneath the surface by experimenting, tinkering, and just plain doing.
Multi-Sport Camp – A fast-paced athletic atmosphere for all skill levels and abilities to teach and ignite passions for a variety of sports — from basketball to team handball — through the context of teamwork and sportsmanship.
Fitzgerald Hoops – Taught by Episcopal High School’s Varsity Head Coach, Jim Fitzpatrick, this camp offers a supportive atmosphere for players of all abilities who enjoy positive coaching and healthy competition. Young ballers can’t get enough of Coach Fitz!

When the fun of the day programs winds down, campers will transition to their chosen evening option, featuring a different fun-filled elective each day of the week-long camp:
Creative Incubator – Electives include Photography, Drone Racing, Radio Station Creation, Improv Theater and Jr. Medical School Dissection Lab!
Under the Lights – Electives include sporting skills showcases and combines, obstacle course racing, 3 on 3 tournaments and outside-the-box Headfirst fun like Bubble Bumper Soccer and Archery Tag!
Everyone enjoys Camp Community & Culture
Each night after dinner, the entire overnight camp comes together to share in the community and team-building activities for which Headfirst Summer Camps is known. Camp Olympics? You betcha! All-camp Murder Mystery games? Sure! Plus a camp carnival and a welcome BBQ on Sunday nights!
Then, each Wednesday afternoon and evening, we’ll take advantage of our unique overnight camp location — just minutes from the Nation’s Capital. All overnight campers will journey into DC as a group to explore and take advantage of the resources that our great city has to offer. Field trips include Smithsonian Movie Night, a show at All-Star Improv Comedy and more!
Interested in more than one week?
For campers who choose to attend Headfirst Overnight Camp for more than one week, we offer our D.C. Discovery Weekend. This option allows campers to stay on campus over the weekend and enjoy the fun and excitement that Washington, D.C. has to offer in the summer.
