Summer
Camp 2020

Wesley Housing’s 5-week 2020 Summer Camp, from July 6 to August 7, is hosted for five hours each weekday at our four Community Resource Centers in Arlington, Alexandria, and Falls Church. The camp focuses on rising 1st through 6th graders, and campers are provided with exciting opportunities to learn new skills, explore the outdoors, build self-esteem, and make lasting memories. STEM activities and field trips to educational and recreational destinations in the Washington, D.C. area help combat summer learning loss. Without our camp, many of Wesley’s kids and teens would not have access to enriching summer activities that their more advantaged peers do. By keeping our campers engaged, we make sure they do not fall behind in school and stay on track for success.
