Camp Overlook | Kids Out and About DMV

Camp Overlook

Camp Overlook explores the close-to-home natural world with children entering grades K through 10 at Potomac Overlook Regional Park. Our camp staff works hard to create a curriculum that weaves unique activities and investigations with familiar annual traditions.

 Activities at Camp Overlook are designed to be engaging, challenging, educational, and fun! We highly value and encourage inclusion of all campers in all activities. Engaging activities include stream hikes, aquatic studies, live animal care , swimming, storytelling, campfires and s’mores, habitat restoration projects, canoeing, skit presentations, solar oven snacks, scavenger hunts, soil painting, nature crafts, and much more!

Junior Naturalist, Explorers, Adventure, and Rangers camp all include field trips to other parks. Junior naturalists have one field trip day during the camp week. We spend half of their field trip day visiting a local stream for a water quality assessment and stream exploration, the other half is spend at one of NOVA Parks’ local waterparks for an afternoon of swimming fun! Explorers take three field trips that include a canoe trip, a waterpark visit, and a day hike. Adventure camp will take a field trip every day! Puddle Jumpers Camp and Nocturnal Naturalist Camp do not include offsite field trips. If you have questions or concerns about any of our field trips, please do not hesitate to contact our camp director at cpittrizzi@nvrpa.org.

End of Camp Potluck! Each session of camp wraps up with a potluck party where camper families are invited to meet the staff and learn a little about what their campers have been up to for the week. More information will be provided once your child is registered.
