Kick It with DC Way Soccer Camp over Spring Break and this Summer!


Spring Break just kicked off for most DC students, and if you’re still looking for a fun, active way for your child to spend the time off from school — either for the week or even just a day — here’s a great option: DC Way Soccer Camp!

DC Way has been serving youth and their families in the community since 2013, bringing young soccer players from schools all around the area together to learn, play, work on their skills, and have fun. The organization has taught soccer to more than 1,000 children every year, and in 2016 began partnering with SOTH (Sports on the Hill) to help kids playing in the Capitol Hill league enhance their soccer skills.

I can personally vouch, too! Both Owen and Sasha are currently enrolled in DC Way clinics and love the program. Every week they work on a variety of skills through fun and challenging drills, then finish up with a scrimmage. Whenever I watch the practices, all of the kids look like they’re having a blast.


DC Way will offer Spring Break Soccer Camp April 17-21 to kids ages 5-14 at Tyler Elementary School on Capitol Hill. Both full- and half-day options are available, and players can register for single days or the full week. The soccer coaches provide the best care you can wish for your children. And they keep prices affordable so more children can be introduced to soccer and sports in general.

Right now is also a good time to register for their summer camp — they are offering an early bird special if you sign up by April 30! DC Way is hosting seven weeks of soccer camp from June 19 – August 18, both full- and half-day options, also at Tyler Elementary School.

They also offer a Counselor-In-Training program (CIT) for players 14-18 years old. It’s a great opportunity for teens to continue training while developing valuable skills and working experience.

Are your kids ready to play some soccer — and have a great time? Sign up online today!

{Giveaway} ‘Swim Thru Life’ at the Tom Dolan Swim School


It might not seem like it right now, but summer is just around the corner, and that often means a certain activity is, too: Swimming. This can be stressful for parents of young children because of the obvious safety concerns, so it’s important for many of us that our kids learn how to swim and know how to be safe in the water while they’re also enjoying it.

The Tom Dolan Swim School understands this and incorporates it into their swim programs. Their main goal, highlighted in their tag line ‘Swim Thru Life,’ is to provide their customers with water-safety education, self-esteem and confidence in the water – safety skills and life lessons that will stay with your kids forever.

You can start preparing your kids for swimming this summer — and beyond, of course — with these upcoming programs they are offering for children of various ages:

The school is offering weekday Water Babies classes specifically for babies 3 months old to 2 1/2 years. These teacher-led classes feature children playing games, singing songs, and exploring their surroundings using toys such as dolls and puppets. More information about Waterbabies and the class schedule is available on the website.

Spring Break Camp
It is that time of year again! Spring Break Camps will take place the week of April 14-18! Skill Builder Camps provide your child with instruction each day of the week. This intensive program produces significant results, especially for those children who are new to the school or who are on the verge of advancing to the next level. This is also a perfect entry point for children who have not yet been a part of Tom Dolan’s curriculum driven classes. These classes are very popular, so be sure to book early. $99 per camp – Pricing is the same as a month of lessons, but you get the fifth lesson for free. More about Spring Break Camp is available on the website.

Located in Northern Virginia, Tom Dolan Swim School provides a state of the art purpose-built swim school facility and system and teaches swimmers from 3 months all the way up to adults solid fundamentals that are essential for water-safety, recreational and competitive swimming.

To help them get ready for these spring programs, the school is running a giveaway for a month of free classes! Enter below for your chance to win.

Win a Week of Camp from Creative Difference


Spring Break is practically right around the corner, and summer will be here before we know it. For many parents, it’s time to start thinking about how to keep the kids engaged and entertained during the breaks from school. Yep, it’s time to sign up for camp. If you’re still researching options, here’s one to consider — you could even win a free week for your child!

The Creative Difference is an educational enrichment program, focusing on out-of school opportunities for children to broaden their learning experience through hands-on and creative activities. Hosting camps during the summer, school holidays, after school, and even parents’ night out, camps are offered for children ages 3-10 years old. Programs are designed to inspire children in creative thinking, problem solving, self-direction, discovery, higher-order thinking skills, and the courage to create something different.

And something unique about Creative Difference from many other camps is the flexibility in registration. You aren’t obligated to enroll by the week; you can sign up your child for individual days.

Sessions have different themes, catering to a variety of interests. Star Wars, Mixed Media, Art Extravaganza, LegoTopia, The Way of the Jedi, Wacky Crafts, and Up-cycled Art are just some of the concepts that campers can focus on during their sessions. Rates vary by week, and half-days are available during some sessions, as are early and aftercare.
