Camp Overview

Summer programs are open to the broader community

Lowell’s eight-acre campus bordering Rock Creek Park invites campers to participate in a variety of activities, make new friends, and explore their interests. Our respectful and caring atmosphere encourages campers, ages 3 1/2–15, to grow in self-awareness and confidence, while learning to play and work well with others.

COVID-19 Update

Covid-19 Update: With awesome outdoor spaces and new and familiar faces, we're planning for big fun in 2021. While we don’t know what conditions will be like 6 months from now, we expect to run summer camp programming, but in a limited capacity. We plan to host campers (Pre-Primary to teens) on-campus in smaller group sizes for our regular three-session format, maximizing our use of outdoor spaces.

Additional programs may be added in the spring.

Plans are subject to change, as conditions shift in our area, in accordance with CDC and local health department recommendations.
Groupings are deliberately small. The low counselor/camper ratio creates a relaxed and informal environment where thoughtful counselors, who understand child development, expand campers' horizons purposefully and safely.

Our expansive campus with fields surrounded by towering trees provides generous space for games, sports, exercise, and water play. Campers explore and investigate plant and animal life in our spring-fed stream, a tributary of nearby Rock Creek. Our fully equipped technology center, three art workshops, our library, and our large gymnasium are also available to campers.

Lowell School embraces a progressive philosophy of education which puts children at the center of the learning process. We strive for a range of backgrounds within our school and camp community and are committed to promoting the principles of diversity and inclusivity in all that we do.
Lowell School is a private PK-8th grade school located in NW Washington, DC. At Lowell students gain the knowledge, skills, and social-emotional literacy to be the bold leaders and creative problem solvers our world needs.
