Get ready to love your summer. We’re thrilled to partner with ESF, an award-winning summer camp, to give one lucky (cool) progeny reader a free week of ESF Camp at Gilman School in Baltimore, Maryland this summer.

ESF Summer Camp is where every kid is free to explore their curiosity and power their potential. Through best-in-class curriculum, campers, ages 3-15, ignite their interests and prepare for bright futures in any field, whether it’s sports, science, technology, art or all of the above. The ESF community is encouraging and fun, and ESF’s adult staff knows that their most important role in your campers’ lives is to provide a safe place to build character, inspire gratitude and spark friendships.

Mindful of the trust parents put in the camps, ESF has made a huge commitment to safety, health and well-being. ESF has protocols in place from carline and security to handling special allergies or other needs. Families can rest assured that their children are in the best of care. The ESF experienced adult staff possesses a deep commitment to the development of their campers and a profound sensitivity to the unique needs of each and every one of them.

Before and after care is also available on a regular or a drop-in basis. Campers can start the day as early as 7:30AM and can stay as late as 6:30PM. Club OT campers are divided into groups by age and enjoy sports, games, crafts, chess, book club, drama and much more. Afternoon snacks and refreshments are provided. Flexible scheduling with no pre-payment or pre-registration required. If your kiddo is into sports, they can try a sports clinic after camp, Monday through Thursday, until 5:45PM.
