Hotels and facilities in downtown D.C. and the surrounding area can be costly. Mason, which is about 15 miles outside the city, can be the ideal place to house and host your group, whether for a student camp or for a business or professional organization.

From June 1 to August 1, we can provide residence hall accommodations that fit any budget for groups ranging in size from 50 to 500, and even more.
