Summer Camps

Every summer, Maret hosts a variety of sports and activity-based camps run by our team of outstanding coaches. All camps are open to the broader public.

Camps may be canceled if under-enrolled. If a camp must be canceled, we will notify you by April 1.

Summer Academic Travel Programs

Students have opportunities to study abroad through Maret's programs in France, Spain, and Puerto Rico.  Sponsored by the World Languages department, the trips to France and Spain focus on language, history, culture, and current events. Students on the Puerto Rico trip study the marine science and ecology of this subtropical zone, examine contemporary environmental literature, and take an elective in Spanish language, scientific field research, or community engagement.

Students live and travel together for a month to improve their language skills, deepen their cultural understandings, make personal connections, and grow as independent travelers and members of the global community.

Over the course of one month, Maret students live in a full-immersion environment, learning Spanish in context through daily life, interactive lessons and cultural experiences.

Subtropical Zone Ecology in Puerto Rico

Subtropical Zone Ecology is a for-credit summer school course taught by Maret faculty in Puerto Rico, where the environment is a living laboratory. Students spend a month living and learning on the island of Vieques, Puerto Rico.

Horizons at Maret

We host the Horizons summer enrichment program on our campus each year. The six-week program helps a diverse group of K-8 children from under-resourced communities to develop a lifelong interest in learning, advance academic gains over the summer, and improve achievement in school. Maret piloted a Horizons site on our campus over 20 years ago, and now Horizons Greater Washington serves over 350 children in  Washington, DC, and Maryland.
