Beginning Feb. 5, there is a rolling registration, in which a limited number of programs will open for registration each day over a one-week period. Following rolling registration, summer camps remain open until full capacity is reached and/or the first day of the summer camp session.

The 2018 summer camp season takes place June 18 – Aug. 17. Most camps are offered 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, but hours vary by program. The session dates are:

  • Session 1: June 18 – 29
  • Session 2: July 2 – 13 (no camp July 4)
  • Session 3: July 16 – 27
  • Session 4: July 30 – August 10
  • Session 5: August 13 – 17

Before and after care is offered at an additional charge. Before and after care registration will open at 10 a.m. on March 5 and is not included in the rolling registration period. Non-D.C. residents may register for summer camps beginning March 5. There will be a waitlist option for the first time this year. There are also reduced rates available for low income District residents.
