With the end of the school year quickly approaching, there's no need to worry about keeping your child active and happy this summer. The Old Firehouse Summer Camp has you covered with eight weeks of fantastic trips and memorable experiences. Be sure to sign up early as these weeks sell out fast.

For your convenience, there are three ways you can register: online, by phone or in person at the Old Firehouse. The Old Firehouse Summer 2020 Participant Contracts should be submitted no later than Monday, June 8, 2020. All other forms and waivers will be sent via email and will also be available at the Old Firehouse prior to your child's camp week.

Camp will be held Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. On certain trips, the return time will be later due to the trip location. Trips depart from and return to the Old Firehouse Center, 1440 Chain Bridge Rd, McLean, Va., 22101. Campers may want to bring additional money each day for snacks and incidentals.

Please Note:

  • Trips may change due to weather conditions, location availability or other unforeseeable issues. The Old Firehouse will make every effort to ensure replacement trips are as similar as possible to the trip originally planned. 
  • Trips marked with *** may become available for single day purchasing ($90/$80 MCC district residents) on the first day of the camp week, if additional spots become available.
