We are still waiting on clarification from MCPS & MSDE. Unfortunately, the Board of Education Meeting August 6th did not give us a clear response. We are still hopeful that we will be able to open for the school year.


Junior Adventure, Skate, Adventure & Travelin' Teens & Camps are OPEN!!!
While these camps may look a little different, our staff could not be more excited to make the best of it! Some of the changes for these camps include:

  • Curbside Drop Off & Pick Up
  • Camp Hours & No before or aftercare
  • Camp Schedules
  • Grouping Kids & Staff
  • Safety Guidelines

Just because we are starting to open doesn't mean you are comfortable with the idea of camp right now. Also, with the changes we had to make in our program to help make our camps Covid Safe the hours may not work for you. If you need/want to cancel please email Bob at that you want to cancel all your Summer Camp weeks and we will take care of that for you. We will provide you with a refund or credit for any payments you've made.

As the state of this public health emergency changes from day to day, we will remain focused on keeping our staff, families, and our kids safe, healthy, and informed. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions, ideas, or concerns.

Here are the guidelines we ask everyone to follow for the safety of our kids.

If you have any questions and would like to talk to someone you can call our main office at 301-933-6888 or call Bob on his cell 240-687-6201
