Learn about the Headfirst Philosophy
Why We're Different
Headfirst Summer Camps were founded on the principle that sports teach kids more than just how to play a game. In fact, sports and games are one of the best ways to develop social emotional skills, such as positive thinking and resiliency. Our Multi-Sport camp also emphasizes physical literacy, which is the ability to move well in a variety of activities and environments. By focusing on a different skill each week, such a vertical jumps, upper body strength and catching, campers can practice setting goals and working toward their own personal best.

Swim & Water Play
Campers in Multi-Sport I (Rising K – Rising 1st) will take part in instructional swim at camp. Instructional swim has goals that are kid-specific, from jumping into the deep end to side breathing. Campers will be carefully supervised at all times, with a 3:1 child-to-staff ratio in the pool and swim progress reports will be sent home to parents. At our D.C. and Bethesda, MD locations, instructional swim will occur on a daily basis. At our Brookland, NE D.C., North Bethesda, MD and Oakton, VA locations, campers will participate in waterplay daily.
Campers in Multi-Sport II+III+IV (Rising 2nd – Rising 7th) will take part in recreational swim at camp. Recreational swim is an opportunity to engage in safe, supervised free swim and pool-based games. Campers will be assessed for use of permitted areas of the pool. We are working with our school partners to maximize the number of days in the pool for your camper – our goal is daily recreational swim and we will let you know before camp if that is not the case. If swim is not available, campers will participate in waterplay.
