Join us on DCPS Professional Development, Parent-Teacher Conference Days
Our camps provide students from PreK-4th grade with a fun, creative, educational and enriching experience on DCPS days off for professional development or parent-teacher conferences. We’ll do yoga movement classes, mindfulness activities, relaxation, games, crafts and outdoor time.
We offer a non-competitive and supportive environment where kids can learn to learn to work cooperatively as well as learn to care for and nurture themselves. 5th-8th graders are invited to participate and develop leadership skills as well: apply to be Junior Counselors.

**Registration for May/June camps will not open until April or final snow day makeup schedules have been published (whichever is later). Christmas Break and Spring Break registration will open later this fall.
If your preferred date is full, sign up for the waitlist on the registration site. We cannot reliably respond to email requests for waitlist additions.
**Minimum registration of 8 campers two weeks in advance required to hold camp; minimum 5 campers to hold games club. We finalize staffing two weeks in advance based on expected enrollment. After that, we may not be able to accommodate late registration due to our student:staff ratio policy.
At this time, we have only scheduled DCPS administrative days, not charter school days off, and a few federal holidays. Many federal holiday camps have been extremely small, so we’ve only scheduled 2016/17 camps on the ones that tend to have high demand, Veteran’s Day and Martin Luther King Day.
We are happy to explore offering camp for charter school administrative days. In order to set up a date for an individual school, we need a parent liaison to take responsibility for helping us fill the camp, by circulating flyers and listserv announcements at the school and generally spreading the word. Contact us for details.
