Summer Camps in Northwest DC, Bethesda, MD & 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 three core components:

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

Creative Arts: Unlock the right brain for untapped treasures. From visual arts, to poetry, to drama, we’ll enable campers to express themselves and learn how to communicate in different contexts.

Team Building: We’re all better together. Collaboration, creative problem solving, and leadership will be explored as campers engage in team-oriented low ropes style challenges.
