DPR Fun Day 2016/2017

DPR Fun Day!

During the 2016/2017 school year, when DC Public Schools (DCPS) conducts full-day closures for staff development, DPR offers Fun Day Camp - a single-day program offering fun and enriching activities (such as sports activities, arts and crafts, and more) for children, ages 6–12 years old. The overarching theme for DPR Fun Days will incorporate DPR’s “Move, Grow, and Be Green” initiative, as DPR continues to plant the seeds of personal development and environmental responsibility. Fun Day Camp is free, however registration is required as DPR strives to meet the needs of District families during DCPS select closure days.
