Start Thinking Summer!

Welcome to Sidwell Summer and all the fun this summer brings! With an array of programs for campers and students Age 3 – Grade 12 throughout June,  July, and August, we have something for everyone.

Sidwell Summer's Mission

Sidwell Summer offers participants a variety of enriching opportunities consistent with the values of Sidwell Friends School including a commitment to diversity while respecting the individual; the stimulation of intellectual and personal growth; and the building of our summer camp community.

We hope you will find this website to be a valuable tool to help with your summer planning.

Our website is organized by the different type of programs offered and by location. Sidwell Summer operates programs on Sidwell’s lower school campus in Bethesda (labeled Bethesda Programs) and the main campus in DC (labeled DC Campus).  Programs for different ages are offered on both campuses. Use the links at the top of this page to learn more about each camp. Under the Home Page link you will also find additional planning tools.

We are always happy to assist with your summer planning and registration. Please give us a call at 202-537-8133 or email us at
