Congressional Camp News & Blog
1. You Will Have a Ton of Fun

or stuck bussing tables. Instead, your summer will be spent on a gorgeous 40-acre campus surrounded
by kids who admire you. Campers aren’t the only ones who get to enjoy the pool, sports complex, and
ropes course. You’ll go down the waterslides, play basketball in the gym, and climb the rock wall
alongside your campers, the only difference is you’ll be getting paid. Every day at Congressional Camp is
filled with awesome kids having exciting adventures in a beautiful summer setting.
