Overview

Would your camper like to design their own city, craft a secret identity, run their own restaurant or travel through history? Then you’ve come to the right place! Each week, our campers are tasked with a unique theme-based challenge, in which they must learn as much as they can about the week’s topic and collaborate to find a solution. All challenges combine elements of science, technology and creative arts, with a healthy dose of teamwork. And because our stories and themes change weekly, your camper can enjoy multiple sessions without ever doing the same thing twice. Field trips include the National Building Museum, Imagination Stage, The Smithsonian National Zoo and Ocean Dunes Waterpark.
