Summer Camps for K-8th

Enjoy a well-rounded summer at NoVA PlayLabs and avoid the summer brain drain. Our Summer Camps offer a good mix of fun and academics, learning and chill time, and quiet activities and active play. We will even spend time outside taking nature walks and eating lunch. Every Wednesday, campers will even do some light cooking!

Students will be grouped by grade level and rotate among different stations. We maintain a small 1:8 instructor/student ratio in order to give personalized attention to each student. Please pack a lunch, a water bottle and all necessary snacks. For ages 5-14.
