FOR CHILDREN ENTERING GRADE 3-GRADE 6
Trailblazers explore the world around us through the weekly themes. Group bonding and community spirit are hallmarks of this tight-knit group of older campers. Wonders Counselors lead the way through D.C.’s urban highlights and near-by wilderness outposts. Trailblazers call it fun!
Alternating weeks of Wonders Shuttle Bus transportation with weeks of Metro Bus & Transit travel allows the Trailblazers to see the city in different ways. Each week, the Trailblazers investigate our theme with daily active field trips, from our back yard in Rock Creek Park to museums on the National Mall, and further afield to exciting destinations in Maryland and Virginia. And we are sure to build in at least one recreational swimming session each week! Weekly field trip itineraries are sent to parents in advance.
