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. No other overnight camp allows campers the ability to tap in to the fun and excitement of a major metropolitan city, while exploring their personal passions and interests.

How does it work?

Campers select their favorite Headfirst Summer Camp for their Day Program and combine it with a unique evening elective program that sparks their interest. All campers will also enjoy the camp community and culture-building events that make overnight camp unforgettable!

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. Activities will include field trips to museums and sporting events as well as a chance to stay on campus and take advantage of Episcopal High School’s world class facilities.
