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-7 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. Our daily schedule is typically the same, regardless of the camp:

  • Computer Lab: Kids will use computers, tablets, and other devices
  • STEAM Lab: Kids will do hands-on arts and crafts projects that incorporate Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.
  • Kid’s Choice: Kids can pick which room they wish to work in for before and after care. They can work on independent projects in the morning, and continue to work on their projects from the rest of the camp-day in the afternoons.

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.
