2019 Camps

Box Turtles (Rising 1st Grade)

The Box Turtles program is designed for rising 1st grade campers where the focus is to encourage children to be investigators, explorers and collaborative campers. Full-day program highlights include the Box Turtles Clubhouse, our Outward Bound program, and half-day specialty camps. With unique options to choose from, your camper will be able to explore and discover through a wealth of experiences.

Box Turtles Clubhouse - Full-Day Camp
The Box Turtles Clubhouse is a full-day camp designed for rising 1st Grade campers. This camp will continue to emphasize discovery and outdoor play, while fostering the creativity and imagination through activities, crafts, projects, stories, music and games through session themes (listed on each session tab below). This camp will enjoy a refreshing daily block of swim instruction at the Beauvoir Pool, too!
 
Outward Bound Camp - Full-Day Camp
This full-day camp takes campers on a journey to explore nature and the outdoors while allowing campers to develop lifelong skills and appreciation for nature. Campers will grow on a daily basis with activities that include team challenges, nature crafts and campus rambles, gardening and hiking. All of this while forming new friendships and having plenty of time to do one of the most important activities any camp can offer—just being a kid. This camp includes lunch, daily swim instruction and weekly field trips on and off campus to places from Olmsted Woods and Bishop’s Garden to Billy Goat Trail and Rock Creek Park. They will also spend a day on the Potomac with Living Classroom enjoying some hands-on maritime learning on a Chesapeake Bay boat.

Summer Language - PM Two Week Half Day 
This summer your child can begin learning a new language or continue to strengthen their foreign language skills. We will have two sessions of Spanish and one of French. Children will learn about different and interesting topics on countries that speak the language they are studying. Our instructors are native speakers, most of which are part of the Beauvoir Language Programs during the school year. See Summer Language page for more details.

"Make-Your-Own" Camp - Half-Day Choices (Including Language and Academic Options)

The "make-your-own-camp" schedule allows campers to create their own summer experience by choosing combinations of one AM and one PM program. 

To include daily swimming for your camper within the "Make-Your-Own" camp selection, “Splash & Play” must be selected as either an AM or PM choice. For Make-Your-Own Camp descriptions, click here.
