Summer Camp

Little Folks has an exciting camp planned for students ages 18 months to 7 years old. This year we are offering three different options for campers based on their ages, interests, and physical stamina. In addition, there are four fun camp themes, sing-alongs, and special activities! Little Folks will provide a pizza lunch for all full day campers every Friday. We look forward to welcoming our current, incoming, and alumni students as well as community children to Little Folks School Summer Camp!

Summer Camp Program Descriptions

Tiny Folks Toddler Camp: This gentle introduction to school is for campers ages 18 months to 2.5 years old. Children engage in sensory activities, water play, and classroom explorations in a nurturing environment. The youngest campers participate in camp-wide activities as much as possible! Camp will occur daily at Little Folks School.


Indoor Water Play!

Little Folks Signature Summer Camp: Children between the ages of 2.5 to 5 years old will have a blast in this arts-based camp. Children will engage in water activities, art explorations, music, and outdoor fun! Camp will occur daily at Little Folks School. 

Joyful Water Play

Outdoor Adventure Camp: Children ages 3.5-7 years old* will explore nearby parks, trails, creeks, and learn all about the nature in our neighborhood! Campers will need to be able to walk up to two miles during the day and will be responsible for carrying their own backpack back to Little Folks. As much as possible, camp-wide art activities will be adapted to be done outdoors. Outdoor Adventure Camp is for FULL DAY campers only. Drop-off points may include Montrose Park, Rose Park, Dumbarton Oaks, and Glover Archbold Park. Drop-off points will be communicated in advance via email. Campers will return to the school building during the afternoon and pick-up will always occur at Little Folks School! In the case of inclement weather (rain, storms, or extreme heat), Outdoor Adventure Camp will take place in the Little Folks School building at 3247 Q Street NW. *Enrollment in outdoor adventure camp is at the discretion of LFS administration.
