During the last few weeks of summer, there always seem to be parents looking for last minute camps for their children. Perhaps plans have changed, and they need coverage for a week or even just a few days here and there. Or maybe the kids are getting tired of hanging out with mom all day (what? never!), and want to join a fun activity with their peers. Whatever the reason, it’s not uncommon to see posts on my local list servs or get inquiries from readers and friends about camps that still have spots available at this point in the season.
Well, some good news for anyone seeking those late summer camp spots: DC WAY has space in their last three weeks of soccer camp for girls and boys ages 5-14! Both full- and half-day sessions will run July 31-August 4, August 7-11, and August 14-18. They also offer a daily drop-in option, which is very convenient if you just want occasional days. Camp takes place at Tyler Elementary School on Capitol Hill.
And I can tell you from my own kid’s experience that this camp is great — Sasha spent a couple of weeks there earlier this summer and not only did she boost her soccer skills, she also had a total blast!

Spring Break just kicked off for most DC students, and if you’re still looking for a fun, active way for your child to spend the time off from school — either for the week or even just a day — here’s a great option: DC Way Soccer Camp!
DC Way has been serving youth and their families in the community since 2013, bringing young soccer players from schools all around the area together to learn, play, work on their skills, and have fun. The organization has taught soccer to more than 1,000 children every year, and in 2016 began partnering with SOTH (Sports on the Hill) to help kids playing in the Capitol Hill league enhance their soccer skills.
I can personally vouch, too! Both Owen and Sasha are currently enrolled in DC Way clinics and love the program. Every week they work on a variety of skills through fun and challenging drills, then finish up with a scrimmage. Whenever I watch the practices, all of the kids look like they’re having a blast.
DC Way will offer Spring Break Soccer Camp April 17-21 to kids ages 5-14 at Tyler Elementary School on Capitol Hill. Both full- and half-day options are available, and players can register for single days or the full week. The soccer coaches provide the best care you can wish for your children. And they keep prices affordable so more children can be introduced to soccer and sports in general.
Right now is also a good time to register for their summer camp — they are offering an early bird special if you sign up by April 30! DC Way is hosting seven weeks of soccer camp from June 19 – August 18, both full- and half-day options, also at Tyler Elementary School.
They also offer a Counselor-In-Training program (CIT) for players 14-18 years old. It’s a great opportunity for teens to continue training while developing valuable skills and working experience.

Does your child have an interest in computer programming? Are you looking for a summer activity that is engaging, educational, and a lot of fun?
Generation Code summer camps are immersive programming bootcamps that take an innovative approach to teaching computer science. Your child can advance his or her coding skills rapidly — and without sacrificing the fun of summer! In just one to three short weeks, campers can create something amazing as they work closely with experts and their peers. They’ll make new friends, gain valuable skills, and most importantly, have a great time.
The Generation Code Difference
Fast Skills: With expert instructors as guides, your child or teen can complete full levels of the curriculum in just one to three weeks. The immersive program helps kids develop skills rapidly, increasing retention of everything they’ve learned.
Hands-On: Whether enjoying on- or off-screen activities, Generation Code campers are constantly building and creating, working on shareable projects like websites, animations, games, and robots.
Collaborative: Peers are great teachers. Campers learn from each other while developing their social and team-building skills. They collaborate on both short-term and long-term projects, and engage in paired-programming and mini-activities during each lesson.
Creative: Coding is a form of expression. It’s creative and strategic, and the camps offer students the benefits of choosing their own coding adventure in a structured, effective environment. The more campers explore, the more self-confidence they gain along with the ability to innovate and lead.
