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


This is the perfect time in your child’s life to get the academic wheels spinning. Through a progressive project-based program featuring weekly themes, we’ll fill their heads with new concepts, cultures and time periods in the context of teamwork, development, and of course, fun. We’ll focus on five core components:

Science: One of the best ways to learn is to “do.” Hands-on experiments will help campers investigate scientific concepts through trial and error, and ultimately teach them to apply these principles when confronted with new challenges.

Team Building: We’re all better together. Through collaboration and creative problem solving, campers will explore team-oriented challenges.

Engagement: Camp is all about discovering a diverse array of new ideas across multiple disciplines. We’ll ignite their current passions while developing new ones in a supportive, collaborative environment.

Arts: Unlock the right brain for untapped treasures. We’ll enable campers to express themselves and learn how to communicate in different contexts through the creative arts.

Mix It Up: Unique weekly themes and awe-inspiring projects will excite campers during the “gap months” in a FUN way only camp can.
