Summer Day Camp


Kingman has a dynamic summer educational support program. Fourth through seventh grade students rotate through math, technology, reading, language arts, life skills, and arts and crafts classes. Small groups of students,  attend 2 classes every Monday to Thursday following roll call and morning exercise activity.

Pre K through third grade students enjoy a summer full of new learning experiences. They participate in various learning skills including reading, math, science, social studies, and technology.

The summertime  activities  help to bridge the learning gap and refresh skills that often fade  between the summer and the  the new school year.


At noon, Kingman serves a nutritious lunch to all. If your child has allergies or is on a special diet, packing a lunch to bring from home is an option

After lunch,  Monday through Thursday scheduled activities include swimming, educational trips, museums, outdoor activities, movies, dining at various restaurants, and enjoying video and computer games at Kingman. If the activity takes place off site, everyone returns to Kingman at approximately 4:45pm to prepare to  depart for home at 5:00pm sharp!


Fridays at the Kingman summer camp are special days. In recent years, we have taken a number of interesting field trips. These expose the children to the vast variety of opportunities available to them in the Washington DC metropolitan area and beyond.

Summer Youth Employment

The Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) of the District of Columbia makes it possible for Kingman  to help  teenagers to help themselves while receiving a modest salary. Over many years, we have hosted hundreds of young people ages 14 to 18. Summer employees work with us between the hours of 9 to 5 pm. Their jobs give them meaningful employment experience including training and working as aides in  Secretarial, Athletic, Educational, and Building Maintenance projects. To qualify to participate young people must be responsible, self-directed, and enjoy working with younger children. At the end of the summer, we have a small recognition ceremony in in which each worker receives a certificate of appreciation.
