Camp Super Smile

A Fun, Supportive, and Empowering Environment for Individuals with Down Syndrome

  • For Ages: Everyone
    Family Day: July 31, 2021
    Cost: $25/person
    Need-based scholarships are available and payment plans can be arranged.

    Medical Team: Child neurologist from Children’s National, and a medical team of nurses, social workers, and psychologists are responsible for ensuring safety at the camp.

Camp Super Smile offers people with Down syndrome (ages 9 and above) four days and three nights of summer fun and social connections.

Camp Super Smile was developed by Brainy Camps in conjunction with the Department of Pediatrics and the Department of Genetics of Children’s National. The goal of Camp Super Smile is to create a safe environment where campers have lots of summer fun while reducing their social isolation, promoting their independence, and improving their self-esteem.

Parents can feel comfortable that their children are under the care of trained and experienced doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals.  Child neurologist from Children’s National and a medical team of nurses, social workers, and psychologists are responsible for the medical care at the camp. 

Campers participate in a wide range of activities.  They are encouraged to make connections with other campers and try new behaviors.  Independence is strongly encouraged throughout the camp session.

Please contact Brainy Camps at njosey@childrensnational.org for more information.


In the event that we must change 2021 camp to virtual camp, these will be the dates:  July 5 - 8, 2021
