Who We Are

At Headfirst Summer Camps, we design our programs and curriculums to inspire each camper's personal best. We tap into the power of play to help kids explore their unique gifts, find new interests and make the most of their experience at camp. Our curriculum is based on life skills that research shows foster confidence and happiness in children and teens. The Headfirst Super Six - optimism, self-efficacy, grit and determination, emotional mastery, hope and goal setting, and resiliency - are promoted at every touch point and core to our programs. As your child progresses through our camps they will not only enjoy themselves but be building skills that will help them achieve their goals and thrive, while having fun and making memories.

We offer Day Camp, Science and Engineering, Multi-Sport Camp, and Single Sport camps for campers aged 3 to 13. Bus and extended day services are also available. Learn more about our camps, our approach and our weekly themes by visiting

What Others Say

Headfirst is definitely 'heads' and shoulders above most of the other sports camps in the areas. I've sent all four of my kids, and they have always enjoyed the extra camp activities, as well as the core sport the camp was focusing on. I really like the concept that teaches kids values about being good leaders and teammates. You really can't go wrong with Headfirst! Katherine M.

I'm very impressed with Headfirst! We just finished our 2nd week. The drop off line in the am works great, the counselors are very friendly and brighten up my morning. I'm very excited about the swimming instruction. My daughter is really enjoying swimming! I think the blog is great including the suggested questions to ask and the photos are fun. I'm thrilled my daughter is signed up for Headfirst all summer except for the 2 weeks were on vacation! Thanks Headfirst for this positive experience! Andrea T
