ENDLESS OPPORTUNITIES TO EXPLORE, LEARN & CREATE
Click here to register today for Summer Camp 2015!
Camping, like many Y programs, is about learning skills, developing character and making friends. But few environments are as special as camp, where kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social and educational activities.
From traditional to specialty, here are the camp programs we are offering at our Y branches across the region. Be sure to sign up early (before space runs out in your camper's favorite program!).
We have two sites Summer Camp 2015:
On Site at YMCA National Capital - camps include Traditional Junior, Traditional Senior, Travel/Adventure, Aquatics, and Counselor in Training
Off Site TBA - camps include Specialty Camps (Art and Science), Sports, and Traditional Mini

Introducing our newest and hottest group exercise programs! If you have any questions, please email Angela Meyer, our Regional Group Exercise Director.
Tae Kwon Do Mondays & Wednesdays at 7pm! Are you looking for a unique integrated training that builds strength, gets your heart pumping, and will make you feel more confident? Tae Kwon Do at YMCA National Capital is just that! Tae Kwon Do is an art of self-defense, with emphasis on developing physical and mental agility as well as self-discipline through graceful techniques, power, and beauty of physical form.
Tae Kwon Do is taught by Howard Davis, a Kukkiwon 5th Dan Black Belt who has been teaching the class at YMCA National Capital for the past 37 years. Classes consist of warm-up calisthenics, stretches, kicking and punching drills, sparring and self-defense techniques, and forms. Beginners through black belts are welcome. Click here to register!
Krav Maga Mondays at 7:30pm & Wednesdays at 6:30pm!
Krav Maga, the official hand-to-hand combat system of the Israeli Defense Forces and the preferred system for U.S. Military and law enforcement personnel, is not a traditional martial arts system. There are no rituals. There are no Katas. This reality-based system is based on simple principles and instinctive movements, designed to teach real self defense in the shortest possible time.
Y-Martial Arts classes are taught under the leadership of DC’s top Krav Maga instructor, self defense expert and 2011 MMA World Champion, Chris Torres. Students will learn a practical approach to self defense together, and through realistic training drills, burn fat and build muscle in uniquely fun and challenging way. Take unlimited classes for only $45 per month.
SCHOOL DAY OUT AND SPRING BREAK CAMPS
When school is out for parent conferences or federal holidays, the Y has camps to keep your child learning and growing! YMCA National Capital provides a safe, fun and enriching environment for your child to spend these days out of school. Please pack a lunch, snack, water, comfortable clothing, and a bathing suit (most days will have a swim period).
FULL Days Out will be scheduled FIELD TRIPS to places like ice skating outdoors in Georgetown, Bounce U, the National Zoo, and Six Flags America. See the list of trips on the forms attached here.
Half Days will be at the YMCA National Capital. On half days, buses will pick up from School Without Walls at Francis Stevens Education Campus and Ross Elementary School; all other participants must have transportation to the Y.
Spring Break Camp (April 13 - 17, 2015) will feature arts & crafts, sports, team building, enrichment, character development, youth wellness, service-learning and free choice activities. See registration forms for pricing details.
