FCPS and Fairfax County Department of Neighborhood and Community Services (DNCS) have teamed up to offer a 5 week camp for rising 7th and 8th graders.  Our camp will be a combination of students from the following middle schools: Kilmer, Glasgow, Holmes, Jackson, Poe, and Thoreau.  Bus transportation will be provided from various pick-up locations which will be communicated in June prior to the start of camp. 

There is a $50 registration fee.  We will take weekly field trips and pricing information for that will be released after we have notified students of acceptance.  Students who do not attend the field trips will not need to pay the field trip fees, but will need to stay home from camp that day as all of our staff will attend the trip.  Students will also have the option of choosing which trips to attend. 

The staff is led by your local After-School Specialists and trained DNCS staff.   Campers will have a great time playing sports, games, doing arts and crafts and exploring concepts in science and technology.

Registration:  Begins on Monday, March 25th, and will close on Friday, April 19th.  All registration fees are due by Friday, April 19th.  Non-paid registrations will be removed from the list and placed on our waitlist at that time.  You can expect to receive notice of acceptance or waitlist status soon after registration closes in April.
