A $50 non-refundable deposit is required to hold your spot.
Camp will be held at our House: 2846 Belair Pl NE 20018.
CCS is insured & licensed and permitted by DCRA.
Program capacity is limited to only 8 campers. Sign up Now!
Camp begins at 9am and ends at 5pm. We will accept campers as early as 830 and keep them as late as 530 to give parents time after work for pickup. THERE IS NO EXTRA CHARGE FOR EXTENDED DAYS.
Campers are hungry – ALWAYS HUNGRY! We have a lot of physical and mental activities. We build, play, and run. We will have at least 60 minutes of play in the park and will have time in the pool, if weather permits! Please pack a hefty lunch and some hearty snacks. If you want to bring a snack to keep here for the week, please do!
Every morning starting at 9am, we will have silent reading for 30 minutes. I have a nice collection of books, but feel free to pack a few of your kid's favorites, just in case. At around 5pm, there will be "free time." Campers love this time and are free to play until they are picked up. They usually play games together. I do not promote screen abstinence, but if you do, I can definitely find other things for them to do! Just let me know.
Physical contact or harmful words are prohibited. I may have to contact you if harmful behavior persists.

CCS COVID Protocols
All adult counselors will be required to have completed a full regiment of vaccinations at least one week before their first day at camp.
Campers will have their temperature taken every morning before they enter.
We reserve the right to turn away your child if their temperature registers above 99.5 degrees.
Campers will be asked to use hand sanitizer when they arrive and regularly throughout the day.
Indoor activities will be set-up with appropriate distance between each seated child.
Masks will be worn at all times during the day. We understand that masks are not possible at all times, especially during lunch and snack breaks which are held outdoors, weather permitting. We will also have extra masks available if your child needs one.
We will keep home capacity at the number to 8 campers on two floors. This number will be adjusted after recommendations from the CDC and regulations from DC government.
Disclaimer: Please be aware that Capitol City STEM will make every effort to practice safety related to the Covid-19 pandemic. In addition, recent studies show that classrooms of kids (especially kids under 12 years old) are of low risk for the spread of Covid. That being said, we cannot 100% guarantee or accept liability related to its transmission.
I liked the variety in activities and the warm environment. My child said he felt like he was part of Mike's family.
The camp was amazing! The kids were never bored and learned valuable information daily.
My daughter was happy and engaged. She enjoyed the hands-on projects and the size of the group.
I liked that my daughter loved the camp. She had little experience with robotics and I wasn’t sure this was a good fit for her. I was so wrong. Everyday she talked enthusiastically about what she learned and what she planned to accomplish the next day.
