Early Bird Discount

The early bird catches the worm! Takoma Park residents can save 15% on summer camps and before care and after care by registering Monday, February 3  – Sunday, February 9.  Residents and non-residents can save 10% by registering Monday, February 10 – Sunday February 16.  The Early Bird Discount is available both online and in person. This will be the one time this year to save so don’ t miss out!

Payment Options

For your convenience, you may choose to pay in full at the time of registration or select the payment plan option. This payment plan option, which must be chosen at the time of registration, divides the total amount due into two equal payments: 50% of the total fees will be due at the time of registration, with the remaining payments due on June 1.
You must register early to take advantage of this opportunity as payment due dates will not be changed. Payment plans will not be available after June 1. All payment plans will be assessed a $25 late fee if payment is received more than five days after the due date of June 1. Outstanding balances as of June 6 could result in the child being withdrawn from the program.

Its cold outside and there is lots of holiday hustle and bustle, but we have a great week-long camp for ages 5-12. Escape the cold outside and join the fun inside! Space is limited and registration opened in August.

Spring Break Camps

Its getting warmer, school is out and fun is in! Participants will enjoy indoor and outdoor sports, games, crafts, and more.  Dribble, Pass and Shoot Basketball Camp is still open for ages 5-12 and a Career Week for teens. Registration is open now.  Don’t miss out!

Summer Camps

We are always excited to bring you a fun filled summer, packed with lots of memories! Our camps continue to fill earlier and earlier so if you love our camps as much as we do, don’t wait.  Registration opened in early February and many camp filled that same day! If the camp you were interested in is already full we encourage you to wait list.


No matter the season, all campers are required to complete a Participant Profile Form prior to the start of camp.

If it is necessary for a participant to take over-the-counter or prescribed mediation during program hours, his/her Authorization for Medication Form must be completed in full by the physician and signed by the parent or guardian.
