As I mentioned, sounds like the camp STL held, too.
Today was the final day of the Dev's camp, so that should bring to a close the summer portion of these. Next up, we can hope, Sept. rookie and prospect camps and the prospect tournies.

It has not been announced. See Chainshot's post, plenty of unknowns about the September camps due to the CBA expiration/issues. Even without that unknown the Capitals do not announce the camp dates this far in advance.
For a guess, IF and only IF, the CBA issues don't impact September camps, the Flyers schedule can be used as a guideline. I'd guess the Caps schedule is similar, perhaps starting after 9/15 (CBA expiration date), Caps first preseason game is also the same date as the Flyers first preseason date. This release also indicates that, if there is one, the Caps Flyers rookie game will be on 9/20.
