Junior Day Camp – Half Day

We are not offering Half-Day Junior Day Camp in Summer 2021. Please visit the Camp Finder page to view our other available camp offerings.

Our half-day option offers our youngest campers the opportunity to sample all the fun and excitement of summer camp before moving to full day. Campers rotate through activities including music, sports and storytime, as well as playground time. And with their modified schedule, these young campers are able to practice important skills for building independence, such as listening to directions and transitioning from one activity to the next. They’ll also be eligible to earn the coveted Headfirst Icees for exhibiting traits like optimism, grit and resiliency. Our highly-trained staff and easy carpool drop off make the transition to camp fun and easy for parents as well.

Junior Day Camp at our Seven Locks (Bethesda) location will be all outdoors. Campers will be provided with abundant water and shade breaks to beat the heat. In cases of inclement weather, we may need to end the camp day early if we deem it unsafe for campers.

Why We're Different

For each week of camp, we create a dynamic, immersive story based on a theme, such as Superheroes, Dinosaurs or the Arctic. Then, through the world we’ve created, campers enjoy activities and games designed to strengthen qualities like grit and optimism. To the kids, it feels like camp. But we know we’re accomplishing more. Check out our unique Super Six curriculum to learn how we help build character through story and play.
