Summer adventures await in the DMV with a host of camp experiences for all ages, from religious and developmental to interest-based opportunities. Explore a few of the camps from our January 2023 issue’s camp directory below and discover more camps online at washingtonfamily.com/summer-camp-guide.

The following Maryland day camps cover a range of interests. Choose a Montessori-based experience for younger learners to hone their language skills in a non-native tongue at the Spring Bilingual Montessori Summer Camp.

If it’s an active summer your child is after, Silver Stars Gymnastics provides the opportunity to exercise flexibility, strength and stamina. Your child might just discover a passion for an Olympic sport!

Children will be able to explore their creative side with a theater program teaching everything from physical comedy and stage combat to Disney-themed courses at Imagination Stage Summer Camps.

Overnight camp experiences in Maryland and beyond also come in a variety of options. Discover religious and cultural-based programs such as Capital Camps, based in the Jewish tradition, or try an interest-based program such as Burgundy Center for Wildlife Studies.
