DPR offers full-day Spring Break Camps for children, ages 3 to 5, 6 to 12, and 8 to 13 years old, during DC Public Schools' (DCPS) 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 campers also bring a reusable water bottle. 

Parents/guardians are asked to fill out and bring two mandatory forms on the first day of Spring Break Camp.  The Spring Break Camp - Program Participation Waiver and the DPR Spring Break Camp - DOH CHA HSEP opt out form are both required.  Please be sure to turn in both of these forms on the first day of camp.
