The Site director and the staff were outstanding. All the staff were properly trained and honestly engaged with the kids everyday. My daughter has attended other camps and she noted that the staff here were great and involved, they also remembered her name each day. I appreciated that my kid was not just a number but a real person. - Lesley S. (DC parent)

4th Annual DC Camp Fair

On Thursday, January 25, 2018, stop by the Steve and Kate's Camp booth to meet Julia and Pam. We will share with you and your campers what an amazing summer we are going to have in 2018.

Last year the JO Wilson Elementary School PTA brought 40 of the finest camps in DC, Maryland, and Virginia to share information on a wide variety of spring break and summer activities, ranging from traditional camps to academic, arts, music, and special interest camps.

When: Thu January 25th 2018 6:00 PM - 08:00 PM
Where: JO Wilson Elementary School 660 K St NE ​Washington DC 20002


Each day at camp, we feature at least one of three show stoppers from our lineup for campers to experience. Directors at each location will decide when and how often to schedule each of these Specials, so feel free to contact your Director to find out what will be scheduled each day.

Details coming soon.
