Live Streamed Online Summer Camps through Zoom!

Your kids don't have to miss out on camp this summer!

 

At Glen Echo Park, we are happy - virtual - campers! Spark your children's creativity all summer long with virtual Summer Camps presented by Glen Echo Park's trusted instructors.

 

From visual art to mixed media projects to nature & aquatic life programs, there's something for every child and every interest. Our virtual camps are designed for kids' online attention span, so they are short and more than one can be combined in a day to fit your family's needs!

 

Camp prices vary ($115 - $135 per week) for weekly camps, which run Monday - Friday for 1 - 2 hours per day.
