Summer Camp Guide

2022 Summer Camps Directory

With each new milestone that our children reach comes the need for information to guide them (and us) through this stage. This point is particularly true when our children are old enough to attend summer camp. How do we know which camp is right for them? In an education-centered community like ours, parents can find many options. Use our summer camp listings presented here to learn more about the camps, what they offer and the ages they serve. Visit washingtonFAMILY.com for even more listings to help you in your search. Be sure to check our website and in the magazine in upcoming months for more stories about camps for your children. Good luck! Here’s to a great summer.

VIRTUAL CAMPS

CodeWizardsHQ
Unlock a summer of imagination! Attend CodeWizardsHQ’s teacher-led online classes. Students choose from 3-week summer coding classes or 1-week Minecraft and Roblox coding camps. Our 3-week accelerated summer coding classes cover the same content as our structured program, with more frequent meetings. Students can complete three courses in one summer! Our 1-week Minecraft summer camp uses Minecraft and Java to help kids learn computing concepts. Kids build projects inside Minecraft while learning how to code. A 1-week Roblox camp introduces students to the world of Roblox game creation! Students develop the skills to create Roblox games in this camp.
