Notice
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, the Summer Camp Team appreciates your patience & understanding as we assess the feasibility of running scheduled camps. Unfortunately, to ensure the health & safety of both our participants & staff, we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel the traditional Summer Camp Programs: Camp Discovery, Imagination, Quest, Rainbow, Kinderplay, Endeavor, Xcerler8, YAPs, TAPs, and Gaithersburg on the Go. Full refunds will be issued to those currently registered. Please allow up to four weeks for transactions to be processed, and thank you in advance for your continued patience.

Although we are not able to run the traditional camp programs as scheduled, we are continuing to explore the possibility of alternative summer programming.
