Day Camp

Belonging. Creativity. Fun.

Summer at Severn Day Camps provide a safe and stimulating environment for students as young as age 3 1/2 through those entering fifth grade. Our week-long sessions are made up of fun and educational activities centered on a different weekly theme. Each group is led by Severn's own faculty and staff along with a team of enthusiastic counselors who provide constant and careful supervision from the first moment your child arrives to their last hug goodbye.
