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[3] | 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.

July 13-17, 2020 (There’s Snow Place Like Camp)

Innovators Inc.[7] | Rising 2nd-3rd
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! Each week, campers are tasked with a unique theme-based challenge, in which they must learn as much as they can about the week’s topic and collaborate to find a solution.

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.

Each week also includes a related field trip or expert workshop to help bring the theme to life, including Go Ape Zipline and Treetop Adventure, Zava Zone, The Smithsonian National Zoo, and Ocean Dunes Waterpark.

Camp dates/themes include:

July 6-10, 2020 (Where in the World is Headfirst Summer Camps?)
July 13-17, 2020 (Animal Advocates)
July 20-24, 2020 (Urban Architects)

Sports and activities run the gamut from soccer and flag football to frisbee golf and Supersonic.

Each week will also include a physical literacy component, with elements that will challenge and improve campers’ motor skills — such as running, jumping, catching, kicking, and throwing — and encourage each camper to focus on his or her personal best. This program is a great opportunity for younger campers to try a wide range of activities and discover their inner athlete.
