Sidwell Summer's Mission

Sidwell Summer offers participants a variety of enriching opportunities consistent with the values of Sidwell Friends School. These values include 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 you plan a great summer!
