Summer Programs

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.

Outdoor Play for Every Child

It is important for all children to be active and outside each day. Campers will have free time on our playground and sports fields several times a day. Many weekly activities and games will be conducted outside, weather permitting.


Chesapeake Campus campers who would like to participate in swimming three times a week must sign-up during registration. Campers will not have the option of adding swimming to their registration after camp has already started. 

For campers who have pre-registered for the activity, we will travel to North Severna Park Pool on Monday, Wednesday and Friday for an hour of supervised swim time. Campers who would like to swim should bring a swimsuit, sunscreen and a towel. We will also have supervised activities on Chesapeake Campus for campers who are not registered to swim.

Chesapeake Campus Before and After Care

Extended hours are offered from 7:30 - 9:00 am and 3:00 - 6:00 pm at the Chesapeake Campus.

Registration may be for the morning, afternoon, or both. A limited number of drop-in spaces will be available each day for a fee of $11 per hour, payable on a daily basis.
