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


Each week of our STEM camp is packed with “whoa, did you see that?”, “look what I did” and “check this out” moments. We’ve picked the topics in science, technology, engineering and math that kids are most excited about and created a program with endless learning and exploration.

Each week is a new adventure as our highly trained staff guides kids through a different topic. And when we say “through” we’re talking in depth exploration. Campers are encouraged to dig beneath the surface by experimenting, tinkering, and just plain doing. And, for those things we know kids really love to do, we have partnered with the best STEM educational providers in the Washington, DC area to bring new offerings to Headfirst:
