Dear Takoma Sportscamps Families,

I have been delaying my decision about opening camp to hopefully get some good news. But, it seems that nothing is changing with regards to the regulations that need to be followed in Montgomery County.

Montgomery County Public Schools are currently not renting out their facilities. The MCPS Physical Education Guidelines are that there is no sharing of equipment (baseballs, basketballs, softballs, etc). The maximum number of people for indoor space is twenty-five, outdoor space is fifty, both with social distancing. Bathroom and lunch guidelines are still very strict and not conducive to our camp logistics.

I am sorry to say that I will not be able to hold camp this year. We will be back next year. I want to extend the ages for next summer so that the highest age groups can have one more year of camp. Have a great summer and I look forward to seeing everyone in Summer 2022.

FAQs

What are the camp's hours and is extended care available?

Camp begins at 9:00 am and ends at 3:30 pm. Campers must arrive and be picked up prompty. Due to the location change aftercare is not available for the 2020 season, but to account for this the hours have been extended until 4PM.

How much does camp cost and are scholarships available?
Camp sessions cost $250 per week, except for Basketball Session 1 which is $200, plus Active Network's processing fees.

Scholarships are available for those with considerable need and are awarded on a case by case basis. We ask that you pay as much as you can so as many campers as possible can attend.

Every camper should bring lunch, a water bottle, and sunscreen, as well as their camp t-shirt. They can also bring money to use at the snack bar. Each sport requires specific equipment, which can be found on the Baseball CampSoftball Camp, and Basketball Camp pages. Please make sure all belongings are labled.
