    Summer Camps Are Available For Youth Ages 3-13, Including Swimming, Basketball, Performing Arts, and More

    (WASHINGTON, DC) – Today, Mayor Muriel Bowser and the Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) are reminding families that the summer camp lottery registration will open on Monday, February 12 and close on Monday, February 26. This year, DPR is offering summer camps for youth ages 3-13 at more than 50 DPR recreation centers across all eight wards. 

    “The Department of Parks and Recreation is our agency that brings the fun, and that is especially true at our summer camps,” said Mayor Bowser. “We implemented our summer camp lottery last year to address the summer camp scramble and to make our registration system more inclusive and equitable. We are looking forward to another fantastic summer camp experience and it starts with the lottery.”

    For the second year, families will register through the summer camp lottery system. The summer lottery system was established by DPR in 2023 to create a more inclusive and equitable registration system for enrolling youth in summer camps.

    DPR summer camps will operate this year in four sessions from June 26 to August 16, with before and after care also available for families. As with all DPR programs, reduced rates are available for qualifying families, but families must apply for reduced rates before February 26 to qualify. Families can register online for the summer camp lottery starting February 12 and learn more at DPRsummercamp.com.

    “I am extremely excited about all we have in store for campers this summer,” said DPR Director Thennie Freeman. “The entire team at DPR is working tirelessly to ensure equity through our lottery process and create dynamic camp programs for children of all ages. DPR summer camps promise to be filled with exciting activities, learning opportunities, memorable moments and a few surprises.”

    Residents can also receive in-person assistance every day (except Sundays and President’s Day) for individuals who would like to register for the lottery in-person. A full list of locations and dates for in-person assistance is available at DPRsummercamp.com.

    DPR will also hold two virtual information sessions for residents to learn more about summer camps and the lottery system. The first information session will take place on Wednesday, February 7 at 12:00 p.m. and the other will take place at 6:30 p.m. on the same day. Both sessions will cover the same information and one of the presentations will be posted online for any residents who did not get a chance to attend. More details about the information sessions are available at DPRsummercamp.com.

    DC Office of Planning Launches an Interactive Website Featuring 300 Black History Sites Across DC

    (WASHINGTON, DC) – In celebration of Black History Month, the DC Office of Planning (OP) launched a new website featuring an interactive map of 300 important Black history sites in the District. Residents can visit Black History Sites: Washington, DC to explore and learn about the people, places, and events that have shaped the history and culture of the nation's capital.

    “Our city has been the home of many incredible Black leaders throughout its history. It has also been the scene of events and movements that shaped the culture in this city, across the nation, and around the world,” said Anita Cozart, Director of OP. “Celebrate Black History Month by exploring our local history and be inspired by those whose shoulders we stand on.”

    The Black History Sites website features a wealth of information, historic images, and location data that serves as a tour guide for visiting sites across the city. These sites span the District's history from 1791, through the Civil War and Civil Rights eras, to 1974 when DC gained Home Rule, and the Black Lives Matter protests of 2020. They highlight the social, cultural, and political movements that are central to DC’s heritage.

    The digital tour sites include well-known places like Howard Theatre where Black artists made their mark on the world to lesser-known civil rights sites, like the site of the former Childs Restaurant at 2 Massachusetts Avenue NW, where in 1949, 80 activists staged a sit-in to protest segregation policies. The sites include many of the schools, businesses, churches, recreational centers, communities, and homes where Black Washingtonians studied, worked, worshipped, played and consistently fought for their rights.

    We are happy to announce that we have a new website address that reflects our recent name change: www.cccadc.org

    In early 2023, we changed our name to the Chevy Chase Community Association from the Chevy Chase Citizens Association to recognize our mission to be an inclusive neighborhood organization. Using the word “community” gives CCCA a valuable opportunity to broadcast a welcoming message that may help neighbors experience a higher level of connectedness to each other and may encourage neighbors to participate in community affairs, including programs developed by CCCA.
