DPR's great news: summer camp just got more affordable

The Department of Parks and Recreation has just announced a new policy to make camp more affordable to more children and youth in DC.   The policy, which goes into effect January 1, 2014, sets rate reductions and processes for families to apply for reduced fees.

The highlights:

  • The pre-qualification period begins January 13, 2014. While applications for reduced rate will be accepted at this time, camp registration will not open until Monday, February 10, 2014. The goal of the pre-qualification period is to assist residents with completing their reduced rate applications so that they can easily register for camp when registration opens on February 10, 2014.
  • Reduced rate applications will be accepted throughout the entire Summer 2014 season.
  • Applications must be submitted in-person at the summer camp office.
  • Approval for reduced rates is required before a child is registered for camp.
  • Reduced rates apply to DC residents only.

More information is available in the reduced rate release, by calling the DPR Summer Camp office at (202) 671-0372, or by emailing
