Pathfinders (Rising 6th Graders Ages 11-12)

Camp Themes and Details Are Now Available!

(Registration opens on January 24th at 7:00 p.m.)

Our Pathfinders Camp is a new program for rising 6th graders ages 11-12.

Pathfinders is perfect for campers looking to have fun while developing their independence and life skills before joining our Counselors-In-Training (CIT) program. Pathfinders Camp includes opportunities for each camper to visit a museum and the Smithsonian Learning Lab to research and learn about a topic of interest, such as creative arts, sciences, pop culture, product design, and so much more! We will showcase each Pathfinder’s projects at the end of the camp week and invite younger campers to learn from the experts. In addition, there will be activities for the Pathfinders to work on self-development and teamwork skills with our camp leaders and partners, such as ThinkGive, and to enjoy some unstructured free time. We provide lunch and snacks daily, and swim sessions are available in the Beauvoir Pool weekly. Additionally, Pathfinders can sign up for a single week or up to all seven weeks of our camp program.

Beauvoir Summer’s Counselor-in-Training (CIT) program combines a series of workshops, hands-on experiences, and time spent with campers and their counselors. CITs will help design projects and assist with camp activities each week with various responsibilities. In addition, we invite school leaders to provide workshops on topics such as financial literacy, job applications, technology use, and wellness–all to provide life skills and leadership training.

 Camp Themes and Details

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. 

Registration opens on Wednesday, January 24, 2024, at 7:00 p.m.!
