Day Camp is a traditional favorite with a variety of camp activities including nature, sports, arts, horseback riding, archery, swimming and many more fit into a weekly schedule. Campers are sure to come home every day tired, dirty and full of adventures to share.

Great Adventures is our uniquely designed program for our youngest campers who will be entering Preschool or Kindergarten. This program is based from our Little School Building and features a variety of activities including Art, Science, Cooking, Nature, Pony Rides, Daily Swimming, and many more.

Our Specialty Camps are designed to allow for greater exploration into favorite activity areas. In the past, popular offerings have included Pony Camp, Congo Chefs, Engineering and many more.

Summer Academy is the newest addition to our program lineup debuting in 2020. These offerings are academic focused and allow for campers to receive small group instruction on a daily basis for one hour during the camp day. A variety of courses are available including reading, math, foreign language and STEM offerings.

For those campers looking to explore outside our campus this program is for you. Travel Camps depart daily for adventures and excursions in the DC area. Past trips have included water parks, museums, laser tag, bowling and many more.

We don’t have enough words of gratitude to express what the Congo Camp staff did for our two children this summer. It’s a true blessing and gift for us to have a place like Congo Camp where we can send both of our kids and know they’re going to have an amazing time under watchful eyes.


The most well rounded, fun for all, summer camp! My daughter couldn’t wait to go each day and wanted to stay longer in the afternoon if she could.


Congressional camp is amazing! My kids love it there and are excited to go every day and the staff is exceptional. For a working parent, the hours and options for the full summer are perfect.


My daughters look forward to Congo every summer. When we pick them up from a long day of camp, they are full of joy, stories, and smiles!

Congo Camp is the absolute best! You definitely get what you pay for — extended pick up and drop off times; tons of activities for campers including swimming and pony rides; and a safe campus environment. Our daughter comes home exhausted but happy every day!


Our favorite camp experience hands down! Such a terrific experience for both our 9 and 7 year old kids. They immediately asked to go back next summer!


Congo camp really made my son’s summer enjoyable, engaging, and fun! He had so many stories to share that from pick up to bed time he talked non stop about camp.


This camp is a slam dunk. Easiest camp on the parents, great value, and my highly-opinionated seven year old had a blast!


My kids had a blast at Congressional Camp! Camp ended a week ago and they haven’t stopped asking when they can go back.
