The Recreation and Parks Department is committed to offering safe, high-quality, and enjoyable in-person camp programming this summer. The health and safety of all camp participants, staff, and their families remains our paramount goal.
Our programs will continue to follow the guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Summer Fun Camp
The Summer Fun Playground camp for rising 1st-6th graders operates for eight weeks from June 20 through August 11. Campers will enjoy a fun-filled summer including sports, arts and crafts, games, special events, and a weekly field trip or entertainment visit to the camp. Time is also available for unstructured play. Each week's activities are theme-based. The camp runs Monday through Friday, 9am-3pm and is located at Cherry Hill Park. The cost of field trips is now included in the weekly fee.
The 2023 Summer Fun Parent Manual is an excellent resource for camp information and details, including weekly themes, a listing of field trips/visits, and other important information.
Counselor in Training
Counselor in Training applications are closed for 2023. Chek back in January 2024 for the summer of 2024.
Emergency Information Form
The Emergency Information form is required for every child in any of our summer camps.
Please save your completed Emergency Information form as "Last Name, First Name".
Send your completed Emergency Information form to: Camps@fallschurchva.gov . Make the subject of your email your child's full name.
Medication Administration Form
If your child needs medication administered during camp hours, we will also need you to complete the Medication Administration Form. This form is only required if medication needs to be administered to your child while they are at camp with us.
Additional forms are required for some contracted and adventure camps. These forms will be emailed to you in the welcome-to-camp email, about a week before the first day of camp.
I forgot which summer camp I registered my child for.
All individuals registered for a canceled camp program will receive a full refund of the registration fee. Refunds will be made via the original payment method. Due to the high volume of refunds please allow up to four weeks for processing.
Refunds requested for cancelations due to COVID-19 will only be provided for confirmed positive cases or the need to isolate due to exposure per CDC guidelines.
The Department of Recreation and Parks reserves the right to cancel a camp if we believe it is in the best interest of participant health and safety.
Will extended care be available for campers?
The extended care program will operate prior to and after normal camp hours during summer camp weeks. AM care will run from 7:00am-9:00am and PM care from 3:00pm-6:00pm. Enrollment is only open to individuals aged 6 and older enrolled in camp during the selected week. Recreation and Parks staff will provide supervision of independent activities and will sign campers in and out of their designated camp program. Campers should bring a snack for each session.
