Get Kids into the Act at Adventure Theatre Summer Camp

atmtc_camp2

There are so many options for summer camps in the DC area, and my kids have been to a variety of them over the years. But there’s one that consistently has been a part of our summer: Adventure Theatre’s acting camp.

The program is a fantastic opportunity for kids going into grades 1 – 6 to experience musical theatre in a fun, full-day camp. They work alongside accomplished DC-area theater professionals and teaching artists during daily rehearsals in dancing, singing, and acting. With props and costumes, singing and scene-work, sessions culminate in a performance of a full-scale show for family and friends. And this is all with one of the best children’s theatres around!

Owen started our family trend with the camp, participating in the two-week sessions for several summers. Sasha began carrying on the tradition last year and loved it so much she’s signed up again. I truly adore the program, too. The kids really learn an incredible amount about acting and the inner workings of the theatre, and the production at the end is such a treat. It’s so impressive to see just how much they get out of classes, and knowing how much fun they have in the process makes it even better.

Adventure Theatre Summer Camp is held at both Glen Echo Park and in the District at the Atlas Performing Arts Center on H Street NE. All sessions run for two weeks everyday from 9am – 4pm with before and after care available.

Give Kids a Fun & Educational Summer Encounter with e² Young Engineers

e2camp

Just because kids are out of school for the summer, that doesn’t mean they have to stop learning. And when it’s through activities they love, like LEGO building and experiments, complemented by creative work and outdoor games, well, that just makes it plain ol’ fun.

This is the thinking behind e² Young Engineers summer programs. It’s not just a STEM summer camp — it’s a complete fun and educational encounter! Everyday, campers participate in a variety of enriching activities with sessions centered around one main theme.

Hosted at Cabin John Regional Park in Bethesda, camp takes place in an air-conditioned clubhouse the first half of the day, where kids enjoy a fun, educational experience, like building an electric motor LEGO model. The second part of the day consists of supervised outdoors activities. Each day of camp also includes a ride on the Cabin Ride Miniature Train.

Space is still available in all of these sessions, and you can get early bird discounts if you sign up soon:

Superheroes Camp | June 19-30
Dedicated entirely to children’s favorite superheroes. Sessions, production, and construction will take place around famous superheroes and different types of powers.

Sweet Camp | July 10-21
A literary and culinary experience for children centered around the world of food. The experience will take place while building, creating, and playing in relation to the subject.

Science Camp | July 24 – August 4
Learn the laws and concepts of the world of science, math, and engineering through the combination of a construction challenge and experiments that campers can take home.

Challenge Camp | August 7-18
Challenge the mind through the exercise of finding creative solutions to problems. Then take it outdoors for physical and sports challenges, too.
