Spring Break Camp 2015

The DC Department of Parks and Recreation offers full-day Spring Break Camp programs in recreation centers for children, ages 3–13, during DC Public Schools' spring break. DPR provides youth with a variety of structured games, sports, character-education exercises, and arts and crafts. Our goal is to plant the seeds of personal development and environmental responsibility in a fun and engaging recreation setting.

Breakfast and lunch are not provided. Please plan to send your child with a lunch each day and an afternoon snack. In an effort to be mindful of allergies, we ask that you refrain from sending your child with any peanut or other nut products. Participants should wear comfortable clothes and sneakers. We suggest that they also bring a reusable water bottle. 

Spring Break 2015 will be held on April 13, 14, 15 & 17.  Please note that on Thursday, April 16, DPR will be closed in observance of Emancipation Day (a DC government holiday).
