1. District Dance’s Fresh & Fancy Summer Camps

Now we know we are a little biased, but our 6 summer camps in Germantown are SERIOUSLY awesome! Each week we are offering a different themed camp, from Disney’s Frozen, Superheroes, Donut Spytacular, Movie Magic, Kid’s Choice Discovery, and Dance Camp Remix. The camps will feature dance classes, interactive games, fun crafts, and outdoor time! 

We recommend our summer camps because they are the WHOLE package. They are a great way to practice dance skills while having tons of FUN at the same time. Our spectacular themes will work their imagination and get them up & moving while on summer break. The best part? We offer before AND aftercare to accommodate for working parents who are in need of child care from 8am-5pm! Head over to our website for more info!

2. YMCA Camp West Mar

What is summer without spending some quality time with nature?! The YMCA of Frederick County offers week-long sleep-away camps in the Catoctin Mountains all summer long. During their outdoor adventure days, campers swim, hike, canoe, compete in team challenges, and learn archery! 

The camp is about an hour away, but an entire week in the wilderness could be SUCH a valuable experience for your child! The part WE love the most is that there are NO electronics allowed. This camp seems like a great way for your child to unplug and enjoy the great outdoors! Click here for more info!
