Welcome to Camps on the Hill

A directory for . . . . well, camps on Capitol Hill.

As a neighborhood parent, I have wished for years for a simple list of summer and school-closed activities in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. Eventually, I built it.

Right now, this is a simple directory, and camp directors are invited to submit a listing. It’s free for both camps and parents and, as long as this endeavor stays fairly low maintenance, that’s the only plan. We will also do posts for things like “Camps with Bus Pickup on the Hill.”

Please let me know if you have questions or suggestions. Hope you find it useful.

Adventure Camp gets kids out to have an adventure and get to a new location around the city every day. We take DC bus, trolley, and metro to get out to two days of splashing water play, two days of nature, and one day of culture every week. Campers become confident city kids who are ready to be a part of their community and move around the city

Busy Bees Music & Art Summer Camp combines a comfortable home base and daily field trips to local museums and parks. Depending on their age, campers spend from 2-5 hours outside of camp each morning with additional trips to our local playground in the afternoon as appropriate. In addition, campers enjoy daily circle times, music, and art projects at our camp facility conveniently located 1 block from the Potomac Avenue subway station. Our campers return to us summer after summer because we provide dedicated hands-on care to campers ages 2-9 years old. Half and full days available, partial and full weeks. We get to know our campers and form a fun summer camp family year after year!
