Best Summer Camps in Germantown, MD

Though we’d all like to go back to the time in our lives where we got three months off school to run and play, being an adult makes that just about impossible. As summer approaches, it’s time to start thinking about how you’re going to entertain your kids for all those days when you need to be at work.

Summer camps give your kids an amazing opportunity to experience new things, make life-long friends, and get a little taste of independence, and are a great way to have a few days’ break in the middle of that long summer. To help you find the best summer camp for you and your child, here are five of our favorites in the Germantown area.
