Our walking water experiment worked perfectly. Look at the final results!
Snow bombs are in progress!
Bridge design and build STEM activity at Adventures on The Hill Takoma. We used gumdrops, toothpicks, and popsicle sticks!
Happy Valentine's Day!
As we move into 2021, we want to thank all of the families that entrusted the Adventures on The Hill Team with their little ones this past summer. 2020 was a tough year and we made the difficult decision to open for in person camp sessions at the request of parents. We adjusted our camp field trips and experiences as a part of our commitment to the health and safety of our families and staff. Planning for in person camp this year has already begun and we promise to continue with the highest safety precautions and cleaning standards while bringing your child an amazing camp experience. One thing we have learned this past year is to remain optimistic and plan to come out on the other side stronger and even more excited to see our families again this summer. Happy New Year 🥳🎊🎉
#ThrowBackThursday #TBT To the first week of our 2017 summer camp themed: Community Helpers, when our campers got to meet the National Guard, learn about who they are and what they do, and explore their transportation / Equipment. We were super excited to have the National Guard visit us and they were really engaged with every camper!
Increasing your health awareness is important. Our #WellnessWednesday tip...
Move throughout the day and track your steps!
This one is especially for all you 1-hour fitness couch potatoes. You know, those of us who work out really hard 1 hour a day but spend the rest of the day sitting in a chair? This is not great for your health. Find ways to get moving. Maybe it’s a short walk on your lunch break. Maybe it’s petitioning to have a stand up work station. Maybe it’s being creative and making your own stand up desk. Maybe it’s challenging the office to a 50 air squats/day challenge. You get the point. Whatever it is, get moving DURING the whole entire day! Use an app or reminder on your computer or phone every hour or so to remind you to get up, move, stretch and look away from the screen! Heck maybe get a fitness tracker to see how many steps you are really getting each day, you might be shocked.
#TipTuesday Each Tuesday we will answer our most frequently asked question from parents via email, live chat, and messenger. This week, our most asked question has been:
Are you offering an in-person camp this summer?
Yes. We are currently planning and preparing our 2021 summer camp. We are planning our calendar and updating our health and safety protocols based on guidance and ways to improve on protocols from last summer. For more information, please visit summercampdc.com.
Happy Monday Parents! Who can relate?
Yesterday was #nationalhouseplantday so i thought i would share my two favorite houseplants. Share a picture of your favorite houseplants in the comments below!
National Houseplant Appreciation Day is on January 10 every year, and it reminds us that we don’t have to lose the freshness and vibrancy that plants bring to our homes just because the holidays have drawn to a close. If you have the post-holiday blues, this is the perfect chance for you to brighten up your house with a lovely plant that you can enjoy all year long.
But houseplants do more than just bring a splash of green into our homes, and National Houseplant Appreciation Day is all about raising awareness of the numerous benefits of tending an indoor plant. Houseplants convert carbon dioxide into oxygen for us to breathe, improving the air quality in your home. Plants also release moisture into the air, conditioning it with refreshing humidity that can actually make your house feel cooler!
I wish I started one of these with my daughter!

#latepost Friday Fun is all about activities! We did this fun activity at our Takoma camp this past summer and look how it turned out!
Directions: Place seven cups two inches apart each. Then, follow these instructions:
Fill the 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 7th cup halfway with water.
Add five drops of red food coloring to the 1st and 7th cup.
Add five drops of yellow food coloring to the 3rd cup.
Add five drops of blue food coloring to the 5th cup.
Take a strip of paper towel and fold it until it’s 1 to 2 inches wide.
Place one end of the paper towel strip into the colored water and the other end into the empty glass. Let them sit for one hour.
Return to the glass and observe what happened.
Your kids will be very excited to come back to a fully formed rainbow! As the water travels from one cup to the other, the colors mix. This is also a prime opportunity to teach some art fundamentals: primary and secondary colors. The three primary colors are red, yellow and blue. Secondary colors are shades you can make from the three primary colors, like orange, green and purple.

#WellnessWednesday #latepost Don't skip Breakfast! Fiber in the morning means less hunger late in the afternoon, when you are most likely to feel tired and gorge yourself on sugar. An early start on eating also keeps your metabolism more active throughout the day; breakfast eaters are thinner than people who just rush out the door.
What are your thoughts? Do you eat breakfast every morning? Why or why not? Lets us know in the comments below 👇🏼
#TipTuesday Our most frequently asked question this week was...What is your refund policy in light of COVID?

Meet Mrs. Stewart. She is the Site Director at our Capitol Hill camp and often works between the two locations. She has been our Site Director for many years. She is an amazing camp planner and leader. She is truly passionate about making sure the campers are safe and having the best time with us. Last summer, after the pandemic began, she worked tirelessly to make sure all spaces were cleaned, sanitized, and appropriate for the children. In addition, for the safety of the children and hers, she made sure every counselor followed every COVID-19 operating protocol and procedures. She has worked with school aged children for over 15 + years.
We would like to highlight her commitment to the children in our community and Adventures on The Hill. She is currently working hard behind the scenes to plan for summer camp 2021. We thank her for her service 👏👏👏🙏🏼
