(WASHINGTON, DC) – The DC Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) announced today that spaces are still available for the 2016 Winter Wondercamp.  Winter Wondercamp will be held in conjunction with the DC Public Schools (DCPS) winter holiday break on Tuesday, December 27 through Friday, December 30, 2016. Registration began earlier this month and will remain open until 4 pm on Friday, December 23, 2016.

DPR also announced today that Winter Wondercamp sites at Benning Park Community Center (Ward 7) and Ferebee Hope Recreation Center (Ward 8) have been cancelled due to low enrollment.

Winter Wondercamp will be offered for youth ages 6 to 12 years old. Camps will operate from 9 am to 5 pm. Before and after care will not be offered.

The fees for the Winter Wondercamp are as follows:

  • $40 per child, per session; due at registration.

Please note that breakfast and lunch will not be provided.  Parents are required to send children with a lunch and any additional snacks for the day.  (Please note that DPR's Camp Policy on food and snacks should be adhered to.)
