About Camps

We offer one-day “Mini-Camps” throughout the school year, when AACPS is closed, and week-long summer camps throughout the summer break. Children in grades K-8 are welcome, and our average age is usually right around 9 (3rd grade). Kids will be split into groups according to age and experience level.

Here is how we usually spend the day for mini-camps:

During summer camps, kids will typically follow a similar schedule for snacks and lunch, but will work primarily on their project(s) for the week. Please see the summer camp descriptions for more details about the projects. We try to make the projects extremely fun, so kids will want to work on them throughout the day.

Snacks & Lunch

Unless otherwise specified in the event description, such as for our Friday events, we typically do not provide food or drink for kids. Please send snacks and lunch with your child if he or she will be with us for the whole day. For kids who attend half-day camps, we suggest sending a snack. We have water available, but if your child would like something other than that, please also send in a drink.
