Recommended: Local Summer Camps

Our companion email list, the Cleveland Park Listserv, is a treasure trove of recommendations. We want to share on All Life Is Local, on a periodic basis, the best recommendations that have been posted on the Cleveland Park Listserv. You'll be able to search All Life Is Local for "contractor," "plumber," "computer tech," "auto body shop" -- whatever you need.

A great old-fashioned, fun day camp for kids from ages 5 to 9 is Cleveland Park Club Camp. It's a small, homey camp, with games like spud, kickball, and tag. Each week has a different theme, such a Mythology, Weather, or Theater Games. (These are three of the weeks this summer.) My kids loved it and went for many summers when they were small, and returned to be CITs when they were older. The camp has a pool, too.


My boys absolutely loved two local camps when they were that age, both right here in Cleveland Park.

Headfirst Camps are all great - and located at St. Albans School (playing fields are on Garfield Street, just west of 34th).  Their sports camps start at age 6, but they have a really fun day camp for kids 3.5-6 with a mix of activities (everything from science projects to martial arts, rock climbing, cooking, and moon bounce) and a different fun theme each week.

My boys also really enjoyed Beauvoir summer camp (Woodley Road at 35th Street), whose great attraction for me was their outdoor pool:
