Now that Spring Break is over, and summer is right around the corner, many of us are in the throes of finding camps for our kids during the stretch of time off from school. Luckily, we have options — lots of them! Even better, there are discounts — big ones!
Thanks to CertifiKID, the deal website geared specifically toward families, you can get great savings on a huge selection of camps throughout the DC area. Offering up to 60% off, there are more than 200 summer camps available, indulging a variety of interests. From sports to dance to science & technology to outdoor adventures to art to theater to sleep away camp, there is something to suit every kid.
CertifiKID makes it extremely easy to find a good camp fit for your child. Search and sort by zip code, county, or interest. If you’re looking specifically for overnight, full-day, or half-day camps, you can browse by that criteria, too. You can also enter keywords to tailor your results even more. And when you view your selection of camps, you can see how much each one costs as well as how much you’ll save.
Wow. It was six years ago today that I launched KidFriendly DC with a short post about the National Building Museum’s new Book of the Month program. It seems like yesterday — a true testament that time really does fly when you’re having fun.
At the time, I wasn’t even exactly sure what KFDC would be. I just knew that I wanted to fuse my professional experience with my passions — for adventure, this city, my children — and give back to DC and the people and places that make it such an amazing place to live, visit, raise a family, call home. I think KFDC has achieved that. I hope so, anyway.
And, of course, I have to say THANK YOU for following. I hope you enjoy reading KFDC as much as I enjoy creating it.
So, I have to admit this blog birthday kind of snuck up on me. Luckily, Facebook’s memories feature dropped an old status update in my feed as a reminder, and I have come up with a fun and easy way to celebrate: A giveaway for a getaway! That’s right, one lucky KFDC reader has a chance to win a CertifiKid voucher for one of these family escapes:
*Be sure to read all fine print regarding dates and restrictions for each getaway!

And congrats to KFDC reader Katie, who won the last “Where in DC?” prize. That photo was taken at the Lincoln Memorial, the words engraved on the landing 18 steps below Lincoln’s statue in recognition of the 40th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous speech.
How well do you know your city? This new contest might help you gauge that. If you think you know where this image was shot AND want a chance to win a cool prize, leave a comment answering the “Where in DC?” question.
