The Best Summer Camps 2018 in Northern Virginia


Summer
time is a great opportunity for your kids to chill by the pool or hang out with their friends, but it’s also a fantastic time to get their minds and bodies active, engaged in familiar or brand-new pursuits. And Northern Virginia is chock full of summer camps for kids. Whether you have a budding artist, scientist, or athlete, we have a ton of exciting camps to share with specific focuses in the creative arts, sciences/STEM, and a variety of sports. Got an animal or outdoors lover, or a kid who just has to be on top of a horse? We’ve got a camp for that kiddo too. Got more eclectic interests? Check out our “specialties section.” Looking for a traditional day camp, sleep away camp, or religious camp? We’ve got you covered too! And if you know of a great camp that we haven’t included, let us know! Sound off in the comments online or email suggestions to [email protected].
