The Summer@Potomac Experience
Top Teachers & Counselors
Each of our Head Counselors meets or exceeds the Virginia Department of Social Services requirements for “Lead Teacher,” and many have more than 10 years of classroom teaching experience. College and high school students with strong mentoring skills serve as assistants in most of the camp groups. The quality of instruction and the low camper-to-staff ratio enable children to enjoy a challenging, energizing summer experience.
The School’s 90-acre campus is located 3 miles from Washington, DC, in McLean, Virginia – just five minutes from the Chain Bridge. Our woods, streams, ponds and nature trails provide an ideal setting for exploration and discovery. Outdoor activities make use of the swimming pools, playgrounds and sports fields. Indoor activities take place in state-of-the-art classrooms, gyms, computer and science labs. There is no food service so campers bring a bag lunch each day.
Camp Bus Service
Our free, extensive bus and shuttle service makes Summer@Potomac accessible to children throughout the Washington metro area. All campers entering grades one and higher must use our free bus service to-and-from campus during camp hours due to Fairfax County traffic restrictions.
