Welcome From the Camp Director

Pinecrest Pavilion Named Best Summer Camp for the 3rd Consecutive Year

in Northern Virginia Magazine

Dear New and Returning Camp Families,
I’ve been a part of Pinecrest’s summer camp since it first began in June 2007.  I was among the first group of teachers to welcome campers to Pinecrest where they could be explorers, scientist, dancers, artists and so much more!  Camp has grown and changed a lot over the years, but some things remain the same:  Every day, new and returning campers arrive with excitement and a smile on their faces.
We take pride in our large variety of class offerings for rising kindergartners through sixth graders.  Whether your child likes to play sports, do science experiments, create works of art, build, dance or bake, there is sure to be something of interest at Pinecrest.  We also have a preschool program, which offers a new theme each week for potty-trained children who are four years of age by September 30.
Like during the school year, we also offer before-care beginning at 7:30 a.m. and after-care for all ages until 6 p.m.  We are proud that our camp has been ranked one of the best summer camps in Northern Virginia magazine in 2019, 2018 and 2017 and was previously recognized as Best Summer Camp in Washington Family magazine.
The majority of our camp staff returns year after year, which promotes the strong sense of community that Pinecrest is known for.  Our teachers and assistants serve as role models, and they build relationships with the campers.  One of my favorite things each day is seeing the surprised look on a camper’s face when he or she is greeted by name.  This is summer camp at Pinecrest…every camper is special!
I encourage you to spend time in this summer camp section of our website to learn more about this year’s camp program, check out our Facebook album of photos from last summer and contact us to learn more.
We would love to have your child be a part of our camp community.
