Back to Camp Night

We have planned a day camp program that will provide your child with challenges and laughter while developing friendships, memories, and values that will last a lifetime. For many years, parents have turned to the Stafford County Department of Parks and Recreation for high quality, affordable camp experiences for their children. Each week, parents will receive a camp newsletter and calendar listing the schedule of events for the week including camp field trip/special events and additional information. We carefully select fun and energetic staff, with a camper to staff ratio of 10:1, you can be assured well trained, mature leaders will provide a positive and safe environment for your child.

Age is determined by child's age as of September 30, 2017.  A certified copy of your child’s birth certificate must be presented when you register.

A summer camp packet will be given to all registered campers.  All forms must be completed and returned no later than two weeks prior to camp.
