Rockville Celebrates 50 Years of Summer Camps

Registration for Camps Open Now

Rockville, Md., March 26, 2012 - The City of Rockville is celebrating 50 years of summer camps. Registration for Rockville's camps is now open.

Camps are available for students ages 5 to 12 and are conveniently located throughout the city. Camps run in one- or two-week sessions and operate from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays. Before and Aftercare is available for most camps for those children needing a longer day. Transportation is available from most Rockville neighborhoods to many of the camps.

The Summer Camp Guide is available online below and at City facilities. Online, in-person and fax registration is available.

When Rockville's first summer camps were held in 1962, only a handful of families took part in the programs. Today, more than 2,000 campers participate in a wide range of camp offerings. Camp highlights for the coming summer include:
  • All-Star Sports for campers ages 8 to 12, located at the Twinbrook Community Recreation Center, 12920 Twinbrook Parkway, offers indoor and outdoor sports and swimming.
  • Creative Crafts for campers ages 7 to 10, located at College Gardens Elementary School, 1700 Yale Place, offers crafts, traditional camp activities and swimming.
  • Play Book! for campers ages 5 to 7, located at Ritchie Park Elementary School, 1514 Dunster Road, offers play-driven themes centered around favorite children's story books and swimming.
  • Nature Explorations for campers ages 7 to 10, located at the Croydon Creek Nature Center, 852 Avery Road, offers hikes, field studies, and fun hands-on activities related to different environmental topics.
  • Campventures and Camp Quest for campers ages 7 to 9 and 10 to 12 respectively, located at Lakewood Elementary School, 2534 Lindley Terrace, offers a variety offield trips such as bowling, laser tag, ice skating and more crafts, games and swimming round out the day.
"Our son loved it every day," Beth Wisneski stated in a 2011 camp survey. "He benefited from the swim instruction and food projects and made friends. Our son came home every day and told us how much he loved the camp and the counselors."
