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 to 15, to grow in self-awareness and confidence while learning to play and work well with others.

Plans are subject to change as conditions in our area and restrictions from the CDC and local health department.
Groupings are deliberately small. The low counselor-to-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 plant and animal life in our spring-fed stream, a tributary of nearby Rock Creek. Our fully equipped technology center, three art workshops, library, and large gymnasium are also available to campers.

Lowell School embraces a progressive philosophy of education that 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.
