Activities

At Kenwood Summer Day Camp the children not only go on exciting trips everyday but also have a wide variety of activities to keep them entertained while they are at camp. When the campers arrive in the morning they are greeted by our friendly camp counselors and immediately go join their friends on our large, wooded playground. Our playground equipment is top notch but you will likely say goodbye to your child as they are running to join the basketball or kickball game in progress on the blacktop. As the day warms up the campers go in groups to one of our 5 themed rooms to cool off and play.

  • Game Room - board games, air hockey and foosball tables, and a Wii with a projector
  • Art Room - weekly arts & crafts projects to make and take home
  • Lounge - bean bag chairs, oversized pillows to relax on, books and magazines to read
  • Video Game Room - jam packed with televisions with playstations and lots of games to choose from
  • Gym - basketball, volleyball, or relay races are played in a nice, air conditioned environment

The campers can also participate in camp-wide games such as flag football, outdoor laser tag, capture the flag, and karaoke contests. In the afternoons free sports clinics are held in a variety of sports from baseball to football and soccer in our open meadow or gym.

Camp Overnight

Another popular activity is our camp overnight. The campers spend the night at camp and enjoy pizza, flashlight tag, movies, games, and crafts. They also receive a special edition overnight t-shirt which is not available without attending the overnight. In addition, we provide breakfast and lunch for the next day so parents get a relaxing night off. The overnights are some of our most popular activities so check the calendar when you register to ensure that your child can participate.

Field Trips

Our campers go on an exciting field trip just about every day of the summer. We visit sites and attractions all over the Washington, D.C. metro area. Some of our more popular trips are listed below. Please see our calendar for the full schedule.

Our transportation for the field trips consists of several small buses and vans and the children are split up according to age group on the vehicles. All of our drivers are responsible KSDC counselors and are over 21 years old. Our bus drivers all possess a commercial driver's license with endorsements for passengers and school bus. The transportation is safe and fun. Not only do the campers get to hang out with their friends on the trip but you will likely hear them singing to music as they drive down the road. Every aspect of KSDC is full of enjoyment.
