ACAS Enrichment Camps


Our summer camp is where positive socialization happens for children in an affirming way through play, creative expression, hands-on experiences and critical thinking exercises using culturally sensitive and practical everyday materials that expand reading and calculation skills.

Our staff members are professionals in the field of education and/or the performing arts. Our activities and classes are grounded in African and African-American culturally relevant values, and encourage collaboration to provide a well-structured, orderly environment. We capitalize on children’s growth and development and have tons of fun in the process.

    Summer Enrichment Camp Activities

    • All campers take West African drum, dance, movement and visual art classes weekly. We take weekly field trips, spend quality time outdoors being physically active and go swimming at least once per week. All campers participate in the opening morning circle where we recite the Black Child Pledge, discuss the black hero of the day, this day in black history and the word of the day.
    • 5 to 7 year old campers review basic math, phonics, and language arts skills through games, language experience charts, and cultural expressions, i.e., music, movement, arts and crafts.
    • 8 to 10 year old learners play educational and constructively competitive games with each other for appropriate social skill development. They maintain a journal and participate in cultural expressions classes, i.e. music, movement, arts and crafts.
    • 11 to 13 year old learners will spend two days a week “in the field” visiting African American historical sites throughout the DMV. The remaining days at camp are spent working on group projects, cultural expression classes and earning leadership and mentor experience working with the 5 – 7 year olds under camp counselor supervision. **11–13 year olds required to have a Smart Trip Card for field projects
