A Child's Place Summer Camp

Staffed by our experienced preschool teachers, A Child’s Place offers ten weeks of fun-filled theme-oriented camp sessions to excite our young campers. Entertaining age-appropriate activities for children from 3 to 6 years old (entering first grade) provide opportunities to stimulate curiosity, creativity, and imagination!

Five two-week sessions of learning and playing ensure that ACP campers enjoy an exciting early learning summer experience. Let’s explore nature on Notre Dame of Maryland University’s park-like campus as we take learning outside!

Join us for days filled with storytelling, music and movement, making art, nature and craft projects, water play and swimming (for 5-6 year olds), daily indoor and outdoor play, STEM activities, cooking, play-based learning, daily exploration and investigation, and more!


Normal Day: 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Extended Day (No Extra Charge): 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
