Adventure Camp DC


What Makes Adventure Camp Special?

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is simple—every day should be an adventure.

• We explore nature 2 days per week

• We make a splash with an exciting water adventure 2 days per week

• We take in the city’s kid-friendly shows and exhibits 1 day per week

Adventures are more fun with a positive attitude and an open mind. Our staff creates a supportive environment where kids can make friends and try new activities.

On our nature and water days, self-directed play is encouraged once we arrive at our destination.
This helps kids learn to build their own adventures and let their imaginations run free.

On our cultural excursion days, we split into small groups, and the Adventure Camp staff focuses on getting the kids to work as a team to explore together.

Our History

As much as D.C. has to offer, it’s hard to find summer camps that are affordable, educational, and fun. When I couldn’t find the right camp for my own kids, I was inspired to start a new summer camp. The first year, we had just 6 campers for a two-week summer session. Now over a decade later, Adventure Camp draws over 120 campers each week.

While we’ve brought more campers on board for the journey, we still focus on giving each kid individual attention to keep children engaged and safe on all of our adventures. We keep a strict 8-to-1 ratio of staff to campers.


Dear Mr. Tony,

Thank you so much for sending all of your daily updates and photos. It means so much to know what my son has been up to during the day. Not only does it give me comfort knowing he is safe, but it allows me to spark conversations once he returns from camp.

Thank you for Anna’s wonderful experience at camp. Even though drop offs were challenging, Anna always came home happy and was always clear that she wanted to attend. You have a terrific program and we are glad we were able to be a part of it!

I had to share that I took Mirii to Jubilee last week and he totally remembered it from camp! It’s hilarious all of the places he now knows or the buses he points out because of his daily adventures.

Thanks again for making this summer so amazing for our kid.
