Summer Camp Registration is Now Open!
The League offers two different summer camps based on the camper’s age. Each camp repeats once for a total of four summer camps. All camps take place during the month of July.
Registration forms may be printed here: Kids’ Month Registration-Updated
We do not offer online or over the phone registrations. Summer camps are filled on a first-come, first served basis. Summer camps tend to fill up quickly!
If possible, it is best to bring your registration to our front desk to be processed during normal League business hours (please see the home page for hours) rather than mailing it in.
We regret that we are unable to offer before or aftercare for our summer campers. For questions about summer camp, please contact Jennifer Pickar, Director of Community Programs at (703) 931-9241, ext. 213.
