VIP Summer Camp Registration Open

April 13, 2018

What is your middle school child doing this summer?

Like you, we believe your child is a Very Important Person and deserves a summer experience that is safe and full of fitness, friends, fun and enrichment!

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: Glasgow, Holmes, Jackson, Kilmer, 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.


  • Dates: July 2, 2018 - August 2, 2018 (campers are encouraged to attend all 5 weeks)
  • Times: 8:00am-4:00pm
  • Location: Thoreau Middle School
  • Registration: Closes on Friday, April 20th.  You can expect to receive notice of acceptance or waitlist status soon after registration closes in late April.  Registration fee payment information will be communicated at that time. Sign up by picking up a registration packet from the Cafeteria, Main Office or visiting this link:
  • Cost: $50 registration fee, plus field trip fees (admission plus transportation cost)

With limited spaces available, it’s important to submit your registration as soon as possible.
