What is priority registration?

Registration opens to current Potomac families and returning camp families on January 12 at 12:00 pm. Camp families must have registered within the past two summers to qualify for priority registration.  All members of the family are eligible for priority registration. Priority registration does not guarantee a spot in any of our programs as space is limited and registration takes place on a first-come, first-served basis. Programs may fill before priority registration is completed.

What are the rules of the camp?

Summer@Potomac has a Family Handbook that outlines policies and guidelines for the season. The 2024 Family Handbook will be available soon for all registered families!

What is the refund policy?

Our refund policy can be found here.

Do you offer lunch?

Yes we do!For more information please visit our lunch page.  Regardless of enrollment in lunch all campers should bring a morning snack and a refillable water bottle. Lunches brought from home are kept inside in air conditioned rooms during the camp day. Refrigeration is not available. Sharing food is not permitted. Please be aware that we are not a nut-free campus.

Will my camper be grouped with their friends?

Camp is all about making friends. At the time of registration, campers may request one friend to be paired with.  We will try our best to honor all requests, but are unable to guarantee. We must receive the request from both families and are unable to accommodate any last-minute changes, make switches once the session begins or requests for groups.

Can I visit campus before the first day of camp?

Summer@Potomac is hosting an Open House in June. Families are welcome to come to campus for program specific tours, meet staff and get ready to kick off camp! More information will be provided closer to the start of camp.

What should I do if my camper is absent?

To report an absence please call or email your camper’s specific camp at the appropriate number by 8:30 am on the day of absence. View our Camp Directory here. Camps fees are not prorated or refunded for camp absences.

What if my camper forgets something at home?

This happens! If your camper forgets something at home please contact the camp office so staff are aware that the missing item is on the way. When you arrive on campus please park in front of the Flag Circle building and call the office. A staff member will come out and meet you there. We do ask families to refrain from contacting campers directly as they are often in the middle of an activity.
