Are You Searching for the Right Summer Camp for Your Child?

The right summer camp should do more than just keep your child busy during the summer. A well-rounded camp experience should include time to learn, time to be active and creative, and time to develop friendships. Our summer camps are a perfect blend of creativity, community, and fun that challenge your child to learn and grow. Our mission at Severn School is to know and value our students for the individuals they are and for the value they bring as a whole. Summer at Severn is no exception.

Day Camp

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. Summer at Severn 2018 Day Camp themes include:

Community Enrichment Camp

Our Community Enrichment Camp mixes educational fun with the responsibility to take care of the people and places around us. This program is open to campers grade 6 through 10 and operates out of Teel Campus. Campers will spend their mornings exploring the many service related projects our community has to offer through a variety of off-campus opportunities including:
  • interacting and socializing with animals from local rescue groups
  • visiting residents at a nearby senior living facility
  • learning CPR and fire safety from the professionals
  • assembling backpacks for children in need of weekly food 

Sports Camps

If you want to improve your offensive skills, become a better defender or go head-to-head against a rival, our athletic camps are the place for you. We invite novice and experienced athletes alike to learn and sharpen their skills in a challenging but instruction-rich environment at one of Severn’s Sports Camps with offerings that include lacrosse, soccer, field hockey, football, and basketball. Although our Sports Camps take place at Severn, they are hosted by individual organizations, each with its own registration process. Our 2018 Sports Camp lineup includes:
  • Severn School Girls Lacrosse Camp
  • Severn School Basketball Camp
  • 5-Star Baseball Camp
  • More to come soon!

Each camp session offers something different in terms of the activities we do, but every single camp is a place where kids can make friends, try something new, have a ton of fun and learn along the way. From the first time they walk in the door until the last day of camp when we say our goodbyes, our campers come to realize that they are part of a greater community; that they really are a part of our Severn family. Please email our Summer Programs Director Ms. Laurie Wachs if you have questions about any of our camps!
