Summer Camp


Camps are a vital need for all youth. It is a great opportunity to create spaces for youth to be outdoors, active, and socializing. This environment allows a sense of community to develop amongst the camp participants. At a time when most social interactions are more geared towards health and safety precautions, camp offers the freedom to be creative and imaginative and to have fun. After the rollercoaster of the last several years, the idea of being out of the house, active and around new people is thrilling and exciting. Summer is quickly sneaking up on us, and if you haven’t made any summer plans yet, it’s time to act!

Takoma Park Recreation Department Camps are now proudly licensed by the Maryland Department of Health, and we are offering a multitude of options for youth in the community. Eight weeks of general camps; Camp Takoma and New Ave Adventure Camp for children ages 6–12. Just Teens is offered for four weeks in July for youth in grades 6–12. In addition to these general camps, we have brought back specialty camps for the first time since 2019. There are three weeks of Visual Arts Camp and two sessions of Dance Camp.

Interest in summer activities has greatly increased, and with registration open since Spring, several of our programs have filled up. Space is limited, so be sure to register today! If you have any questions regarding programs and classes, please contact us at or 301-891-7290.
