Light the torch and let the Aventuras Olympics begin! We will kick off this week with our opening ceremonies, where each of our campers will choose which country, they would like to represent throughout the week. Our Aventuras Olympics will focus on athletic events from both the winter and summer games, such as track and field, basketball, soccer, archery, curling and hockey. With each event, we will teach the children the rules of the game, practice our drills and then assign positions and take to the fields! Each team will be provided with points for not only their skill, but also their enthusiasm, camaraderie and sportsmanship they demonstrate all week long. Our Olympians in training will get loads of practice in cheering on their team as we root, root, root for our own home team, the Washington Nationals, during a mid-week field trip to Nat’s Park! We will end our week by celebrating the accomplishments of each of our Olympic teams during our closing ceremonies!
Field trip to Nats Park
“X” marks the spot for this pirate adventure! We know that a pirate is only as good as his trusty treasure map and this week will be all about our camper’s ability to read, decode and utilize their pirate tools (astrolabe, compass, telescope and lodestone) to find treasure of their own. Avast, ye landlubbers, our days will be filled with pirate challenges where we will compete in relay races in our pirate’s gear, do our best to keep steady when walking the plank, learn the lingo of the sea and engineer ships to hold our weight in gold! Ye matey’s will take delight in geocaching for treasure and put their nautical knowledge to the test in discovering if we found true treasure or fool’s gold! Our final venture will be to set sail on the blue water of the Chesapeake where our map skills and maritime history will be put to the test!
Field Trip Pirate Adventures on the Chesapeake in Annapolis!
While we all have a deep love for science and STEM,- eruptions, explosions and larger than life chemical reactions are the most exhilarating experiments for a budding scientist to enjoy! Classic science experiments will take the forefront of this week as we create “Elephant Toothpaste”, build an enormous erupting volcano and launch giant rockets up into outer space. Throughout the week campers will form their hypothesis, test their experiments, make their observations and come back to the same project, determining how best to manipulate the rearrangement of the molecular structures of each substance for an even grander reaction. We will end our week with a trip to the Maryland Science Center to learn more about the wonders of scientific phenomena and chemical reactions through on-stage demonstrations!
Field Trip to Maryland Science Center
What better medium than art to celebrate the environment, as seen through the eyes of its future custodians? This summer, Aventuras wants to dedicate its Art Week to raise awareness and inspire our community to care for and protect our beloved Chesapeake Bay. Through guided research and group discussions, campers will learn the importance that our storm drain systems have on our local rivers and streams. Our intention behind this week is not only to partner with the City of Rockville to create a visual representation of supporting our bay, but to inspire our campers to connect with the environment through art and to take positive steps to reduce their impact and protect water quality. We will close this colorful week with an unveiling ceremony where our campers will not only present their masterpiece but also share their knowledge, supports and efforts made to save our bay!
Field Trip to Rockville Swim Center
Our culinary campers can’t wait to embark on this new adventure of Restaurant Week where children will be able to create, taste and even engineer their own pop-up restaurant! Each day, our campers will enjoy a variety of summer fresh recipes, filled with in season fruits, vegetables and herbs supplied by a local co-op – who will also allow our families to purchase their own summer fresh bundle of crops to take home and enjoy. After tasting all of our ingredients and some simple menu items, campers will write and create their own menus to be hosted at our Restaurant Week finale, featuring bite-sized versions of some of our favorite appetizers, picnic foods and brunch items. Our final challenge will be setting up our pop-up restaurants where the theme, design, layout, marketing and more will be engineered by our campers. We then invite families to join us for Friday’s restaurant opening! One thing for sure, Restaurant Week will leave our campers with a taste that this is the most delicious summer yet!
Field Trip to Rockville Swim Center
If you are a kid who loves video games that are more about creation than destruction, Minecraft Adventure week is your place this summer! Campers will collaborate to design and build their own fantastic world by carving out valleys, trenches and caverns, building structures, walls, staircases and other things of beauty, enhancing their technology skills and teamwork along the way. Each day will focus on a different challenge, where campers will create moments from history, key landmarks and architectural wonders of the world. The fun won’t stop here as campers will do so much more off the screens as we take our learned skills to the Creation Station, working with Redstone circuits and creations, bringing their designs to life. We can’t wait to see what our campers will design during this Minecraft Adventures Week.
Field Trip to Rockville Swim Center
Your Hogwarts letter just came in the mail and you are about to venture on the experience of a lifetime! Throughout this week of witchcraft and wizardry, we will allow our wands at Olivander’s to find us as we carve our own wooden wands! After we are sorted into our houses, we will take to the fields and play a few rounds of Quidditch, write our own spells, brew a few potions and put our STEM skills to the test as we make a few charms really come to life. Campers will take delight in tasting Butterbeer, Cockroach Clusters, Chocolate Frogs and Polyjuice Potion Punch. Throughout the week, campers will compete in challenges to earn House Points – though the true act of bravery will come at the end of the week with our very own Wizarding Cup and Triwizard Maze!
Field Trip to Rockville Swim Center
Get ready to battle your way through questions, clues, trivia, puzzles and competitions! Campers will put their knowledge (and reflexes to the test by:
- Answering Jeopardy-style questions in topic areas of history, sports, famous characters and current events,
- Teaming up with their buddies to outguess opponents in a Family Feud,
- Battling through Minute to Win it games;
- And trying to figure out the secret hidden talents of their friends
Our week is sure to end with an abundance of laughter as we recreate classic obstacle courses from Double Dare where campers team up to collect flags while making their way through a muddy trike race, pop a bucket of messy balloons, catch eggs with cymbals and run through an action-packed obstacle course before getting slimed!
Field Trip to Rockville Swim Center
Our bots are back this year for more STEMventures to include coding, robotics and engineering challenges – with an amusement park spin! Using a variety of robots, campers will research the physics behind some of their favorite amusement park rides including swings, bumper cars, slides and roller coasters! Our 1st & 2nd grade campers will take delight in the mix of art and STEM with our Ozobots, while our older campers will enjoy the skill, strategy and navigation that comes along with engineering structures for the Sphero bots! Campers will begin with 2D blueprints of their designs, test their projects with base models and then determine the best way to create and engineer a fully functional ride – keeping in mind the added challenge of how to navigate their bot through the spins, bumps, twists, turns and even upside-down loops of each amusement park attraction. STEM challenges will be at the forefront of this week as campers work together to design the longest, most action-packed coasters. At the end of the week, campers will put their designs to the test as their bots spend a day at their constructed Aventuras Amusement Park- and we enjoy some thrills of our own during our field trip to Adventure Park!
Field Trip to Adventure Park
Have younger siblings looking for their own summer adventure? We have built in fun for our youngest campers (those heading into Kindergarten this fall) with our dedicated Aventuras Jr. program, where children can experience all of the joyful moments of their first summer camp experience, while keeping a familiar routine, cozy community feel and built in opportunities for onsite adventure:
Our Jr. Campers will kick things off with two weeks of Animal Planet investigations! Campers will be able to learn about all different species of animals who rome our earth including those on land, who take flight and even underwater! Campers will learn fun facts of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates and fish including their characteristics and home habitats through hands on experiments and live stream videos!
This week, our campers are setting off on a mission to break a world record! Researching some classic world records for kids – most claps in a minute, most skips in a jump rope, longest distance to stretch slime, fastest assembly of Legos and more! – campers will take delight in seeing if they can break some of these classic records and will be challenged to set a new record all their own!
Did you know that you can code both on and off the screen?! Our Jr. Campers will love to learn the basics of coding with Ozobots – small robots that are controlled using written code on paper! Each day, campers will face a new STEM Wars challenge in how to get their Ozobot safely through obstacles, twisting, turning, speeding up, slowing down and changing colors along the way!
Aventuras Jr. is gathering all the ingredients you will need to make your favorite recipe with your friends this summer. Each day, after our young chefs decorate their own chef hats, they will feature a variety of scratch made recipes and will have the opportunity to explore the appropriate kitchen tools for their age.Some of the recipes we are eager to try this summer include handmade pastas, delicious baked goods and hand tossed bread! Our Jr. Campers will not only learn how to cook but also put into practice their presentational skills in sharing their creations with their camp friends and brining home tasty treats for their families!

What does a day at Aventuras Summer look like?
At Aventuras Summer, your kids will engage in all of their favorite summer activities – from epic capture the flag games, kickball and water balloon fights to hands-on projects, activities and experiments – every day brings something to look forward to! Intentional learning and experiences are sprinkled throughout our summer, adding hidden enrichment for children to avoid the “summer slide.” Additionally, we’re excited to bring back our weekly trips to the pool and we’ve got a couple of awesome field trips and some special in-house guests planned to further highlight this year’s camp themes.
Each camp week takes on a new theme allowing us to cover a variety of exciting interests throughout the summer, ensuring our kids never grow bored. Our camps are organized into age-based camp groups, ensuring that your child is paired with their peers and offered activities specifically geared toward their interest and engagement. Our rising 3rd – 5th graders have added team-based challenges, ramped up STEM activities and action-packed sports to keep them engaged all summer long, while our rising 1st and 2nd grade campers have loads of fun and adventure built into each day while having the added benefit of the care, consistency and predictability that their age group craves.
Our summer camps are just the right size, big enough to ensure your kids will always have a few buddies close by, but not so big that they feel lost or intimidated by the crowd. At Aventuras, everyone will know your child’s name! Our Camp Director and several counselors have been with us for years now and are well trained and experienced to connect with your child and ensure they have a great time at Aventuras! Click here to read more about our Camp Counselor’s and read their bios!
Also, did we mention our summer camps are bilingual?! Our program is open to children with all levels of Spanish language, from beginner to fully bilingual! The beauty of an immersion program is the children will pick up what they can at their own pace and our counselors will be sure to challenge each child and his or her unique ability level during our daily dedicated Spanish enrichment learning.
Aventuras Summer is conveniently located in Whole Kids Academy’s light filled and air-conditioned classrooms, all-purpose space and outdoor playgrounds and dedicated green space right on Executive Boulevard, just behind Pike and Rose.
