*Information about DPR Summer Camps in 2020, including locations, schedules, registration, and reduced rate will be posted during the month of January, 2020.*

*DPR's Summer Camp Registration Office has moved! The office is now located at Deanwood Recreation Center (1350 49th Street NE), and is no longer located at Columbia Heights Community Center. The office can be reached at 202-673-3237 or [email protected]*

DPR has been providing camps and camp activities to the District’s youth for over 30 years and offers a wide variety of experiences for youths age 3 - 13. DPR partners with the DC Free Summer Meals Program to provide free nutritious breakfasts and lunches at many of its summer camps. Parents are additionally encouraged to provide children with a healthy snack daily. 

Once open for registration, DPR summer camps remain open until full capacity is reached and/or the first day of the summer camp session. Once at capacity, each summer camp offers a waitlist for prospective families who are interested in sites that have high demand. Reduced rates are available for qualifying families and before and after care is also available at most locations.
