Spring and Winter Break Camps are designed to give students structure during school breaks. We want to keep them active and productive, even when school is out. During breaks, we make the most of their time by offering fun camp activities in which kids can participate.
Our staff and specialists will keep the students engaged in a range of activities over the course of each four-hour camp day, spanning five days over each break. Campers should bring a packed lunch each day. Camps coincide with the MCPS school break schedule. See our School Year Schedule for more details.
All of our camps offer engaging activities and knowledgeable specialists.
