About Park Camps

This summer, children ages 3 ½-17 are invited to join us for dynamic experiences in the tradition of The Park School of Baltimore. Park’s unique approach to learning and growing flourishes amid the beauty and wonder of our wooded 100-acre campus.

Park Camps' staff consists of caring, committed professional educators from The Park School and the greater Baltimore community who have created exciting programming to engage both mind and body.

Sessions for 2017 begin June 19 offering special one- and two-week Activity Camps: “Are We There Yet?” Excursion Camp (June 19-23), providing adventure opportunities for intrepid boys and girls; Sports and Games Camp (June 19-23) and Summer Soccer (June 19-23), for those interested in sports and games; and a two-week Park C.I.T./Leadership Development Camp (June 19-30), offering childcare training for our future camp counselors and teachers as well as service learning opportunities. *Note: Transportation and Before Camp and After Camp Care are not available for these camps. 

Park's day camps — Cubs, Bears, and Bruins and STEAM Focus Camps (new this summer!) — complete the summer experience from June 26-August 4.

Cubs, Bears, and Bruins day camps invite children ages 3 ½–12 to experience a summer full of adventures on Park's beautiful 100-acre campus. Campers are grouped by age into “dens” that feature a 1:4 staff to camper ratio. 

NEW FOR 2017! STEAM Focus Camps for children ages 10-17 offer campers three separate two-week sessions based on science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics! These exciting new focus camps offer participants two weeks of immersion in STEAM topics, including NXT Robotics, Introduction to Coding and Game Design, and Digital Sound Design. 

We look forward to welcoming you to Park Camps!
