It’s never too early to start thinking about what to do with your kids over a summer break — and Rockville’s summer programs are open to everyone, not just city residents!

  • Summer Blast, Rockville’s affordable, flexible all-day camp returns to four locations with swimming, field trips, arts, crafts, games and special events. Participants can register by the week or for the whole summer. Summer Blast provides full-day care, 7:30 a.m.-6 p.m. June 17-Aug. 23. Camp opportunities include: Tiny Chefs Cooking, Mad Science, Lego Invention, Robotics, Hip Hop, Dramatic Kids, Abrakadoodle and Way Off Broadway. Camps are for kids aged age 3-16.
  • The summer will also be packed with things to do for kids aged 6-12 who take part in Rockville’s Summer Playgrounds program. Various locations are set up at schools and parks in city neighborhoods, where children can meet new friends, and take part in sports and games, crafts and fun water activities.

Find out more about the city’s summer program for kids and teens in the “Summer Camps Guide 2019,” which will be available online and in print Jan. 17 at city facilities and Rockville libraries. Registration begins Jan. 22. Register early to take advantage of a convenient plan that allows payment for summer programs in four installments.
