Summer Camp

Welcome to Capitol Hill Day School Summer Camp!

Capitol Hill Day School Summer Camp 2019 was one for the books, with over 340 campers, 27 counselors and instructors, and more than 30 trips to farms, museums, swimming pools, and water parks.

Every summer, we offer seven one-week sessions, each with a variety of programs for children ages four to fourteen. The day begins at 9:00am and ends at 4:00pm. For an additional fee, extended care is available from 8:00 to 9:00am and from 4:00 to 6:00pm.

Many Summer Camp instructors are CHDS teachers and members of the School’s After School Program staff, as well as other invited professionals. The number of campers in each group ranges from 20 to 30, depending on the program. At least two adults are always with each group.

Campers are grouped by age:

  • Early Childhood: PreK – 1st Grade
  • Elementary: 2nd – 4th Grade
  • Upper: 5th – 8th Grade
