Headfirst Summer Camps (Alexandria, VA)


<< Back to Search



Headfirst Summer Camps’ goal is simple — to provide an environment of growth for kids through sports, fun, and play. Headfirst believes summer camp is a place for kids to try new things, stretch themselves, and test their limits. In fact, they aim to inspire each and every camper to push themselves just a little bit harder than they did the day before.

Does your child want to learn about Robotics, Urban Planning, Cooking, or Dinosaurs? Headfirst can help. Does your child want to do nothing but play sports and games all day? They’ve got a camp for that, too.

Their wide range of programs ensures there’s something for every kid. And with five campuses in the DMV, plus bus service at select locations, they’re convenient as well.

Summer 2020 camps include:


Junior Camp | Rising PreK & Younger
Multiple dates, see below

For many Junior Campers, Headfirst is their first camp experience. So Headfirst goes above and beyond to make sure both campers and parents feel comfortable — from their friendly carpool drop off, to their daily blog updates and photos, to their highly-trained staff.

Headfirst works with teachers and child development experts to create a dynamic program that focuses on school readiness, emphasizing fine motor development, following multi-step directions, expanding expressive vocabulary, and promoting persistence, all while offering the best of summer camp! Your child will do everything from arts & crafts to STEM to instructional swim, as well as have the opportunity to make friends and learn skills to increase their independence.

Multiple dates, see below

Would your camper like to design their own city, craft a secret identity, run their own restaurant, or travel through history? Then you’ve come to the right place!

All challenges combine elements of science, technology, and creative arts, with a healthy dose of teamwork. And because camp stories and themes change weekly, your camper can enjoy multiple sessions without ever doing the same thing twice.
