Box Turtles Clubhouse – Full-Day Camp

The Box Turtles program is designed for rising 1st grade campers where the focus is to encourage children to be investigators, explorers and collaborative campers, where your camper will be able to explore and discover through a wealth of experiences.

The Box Turtles Clubhouse is a full-day camp designed for rising 1st Grade campers. This camp will continue to emphasize discovery and outdoor play, while fostering the creativity and imagination through activities, crafts, projects, stories, music and games through session themes (listed on each session tab below).

Box Turtles Camp Pricing and Details

Beauvoir Summer Themes 

Our themes are incorporated each week through various activities, projects, and conversations during the camp day, often culminating in a community-wide gathering each Friday. Campers will also explore much of the Washington National Cathedral grounds on scavenger hunt games and connecting with the outdoors. It’s a great place to be a camper! Daily swim instruction is part of the day, as well as a morning snack, lunch, and afternoon snack–all included in the program price. 


Beauvoir campers of all ages have the opportunity to enhance their swimming skills through group instruction. Grouped by skill, campers learn various swim techniques, practice water-safety skills, and play fun water games.

Swimsuit and Sunscreen Recommendations

We ask parents to send campers ready in their swimsuits (on their scheduled swim days) with sunscreen applied.  A bathing suit with a separate top and bottom is preferred for ease of bathroom use. We also recommend sending in a sunscreen spray, reducing the need for staff to assist with hands-on sunscreen application.
