Tuition fees are up to $140 per week based on the child’s grade and total family or household income. Sessions run week to week, allowing parents to sign up for only the weeks when child care is needed. Summer fees can be downloaded on the Central Registration page.
The APG Summer Camp programs are located at the Aberdeen and Edgewood Youth Centers. Campers will enjoy art, sports, games, computer labs and swimming. In addition, every week the entire camp goes on a special field trip. Past trips have included tours of DC area museums, amusement parks and everyone’s summer favorite, the Harford County Farm Fair.
