We will begin with one three-week session and follow with six two-week sessions. We will ensure that children enrolled in A Child’s Place summer camps enjoy an exciting early learning summer experience. Let’s explore nature together on Notre Dame of Maryland University’s park-like campus as we take learning outside!
Join us for days filled with storytelling, music and movement, making art, nature and craft projects, water play, daily indoor and outdoor play, STEM activities, cooking, play-based learning, daily exploration and investigation, and so much more!

At this time, we are proceeding (cautiously) with in-person summer camp programming. We are carefully in step with CDC and state guidelines and will be sure to make you aware if something changes that prohibits or recommends a change in our programming plans.
Notre Dame of Maryland University (“NDMU” or “the University”) adheres to federal, State, and Baltimore City COVID-19 related laws, regulations, and health guidelines and if for any reason the University makes the decision not to allow in-person summer programming for 2021, payment will be fully refunded on a pro-rated basis if activities have already begun.
Each day, parents or caregivers will be required to complete a self-screening COVID assessment for their child prior to arriving on campus and show the “green” clearance to attend school that day. If the self-screening indicates the child is not clear to attend campus activities (e.g., a “red” not clear notification), the child will not be allowed on campus until a green clearance indicator is presented.
A child care program should enact closure and quarantine close contacts if:
Note: If the person with confirmed or probable COVID-19 is a parent (or other household member) of a child in care and their only close contact with the child care program staff and/or children was with their own child, the child should quarantine BUT if the child is asymptomatic, the program should not need to close or quarantine any other persons.
If a COVID outbreak only impacts one class, other ACP Summer Camp sessions may continue uninterrupted if there has been no exposure. Parents of children in non-impacted or exposed summer camp classrooms who may wish to remove their child from camp may lose fees paid.
If a camper is exposed to COVID-19 at A Child’s Place by another camper or camp staff, the camper(s)’ legal guardians will be notified and camper will have to quarantine for recommended period of time per CDC guidelines, or until a negative COVID-19 test is received and the camper(s) do not exhibit symptoms.
If a camper is exposed to COVID-19 outside of camp by someone in their household or someone they were in close contact with (as defined by the CDC), the camp family is expected to notify A Child’s Place staff within 24 hours and that camper will have to quarantine for the recommended period of time per the CDC guidelines, or until a negative COVID-19 test is received and the camper(s) do not exhibit symptoms.
