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!
Every summer, we offer seven one-week sessions, each with a variety of programs for children ages four to fourteen. The day begins at 9:00am and ends at 4:00pm. For an additional fee, extended care is available from 8:00 to 9:00am and from 4:00 to 6:00pm.Many Summer Camp instructors are CHDS teachers and members of the SchoolÕs After School Program staff, as well as other invited professionals. The number of campers in each group ranges from 20 to 30, depending on the program. At least two adults are always with each group.
Hill Center at the Old Naval Hospital is not only your neighborhood spot for art galleries and thoughtful programming, but a place for your child to learn and play all summer long! Our program partners host camps for Super Girls, Young Warriors, Mad Scientists, Math Wizards, and Prodigy Film Makers. Make Hill Center your one-stop destination for a variety of great camps all summer long!
(3-5 year old) Summer is a great time to give our littlest campers a chance to get outdoors for some fun in the sun! In addition to our academic curriculum — provided by Funshine Express, ZooPhonics and Spanish Through Play — we have several activities that get the kids up and moving, including weekly water play days, soccer lessons, yoga, and Jump Bunch kid fitness classes. We take the kids on field trips throughout the summer and bring special guests to the center for performances and classes. There are also several activities throughout the summer during which families are invited to join in the fun!
(6-10 year old) The “Big Kids” enjoy a summer program designed to keep their minds and bodies moving and grooving! Each week we have a focused theme that provides the kids exposure to a variety of academic, artistic, and physical experiences. Whether they’re creating master works of art, designing their own buildings, starring in the hottest play in the city, or playing for the camp soccer championship: the possibilities are as endless as their imaginations. We provide the resources and encouragement to make sure that every camper has their best summer yet.
