Frying Pan has a Wagon Load of Summer Camps

Frying Pan has a Wagon Load of Summer Camps

What’s the first thing you think about when you think of Frying Pan Farm Park?

Art! Robots! Chess! Time Travel! And geocaching!

There’s more going on at Frying Pan Farm Park this summer than farming. The park is host to dozens of summer camps for “tweens” and other youngsters on a variety of topics. The Art of Farming for Young Rembrandts pairs life on the farm with the art talent of campers, and the Art Explorers Camp invites youngsters 8 to 14 years old to challenge themselves in a variety of art mediums.

Several state champions and national masters will be on hand to instruct campers at Chess Camp. Any skill level is welcome. Or imagine spending a week learning the world of robotics and exploring computer programming in the Robotics and 3D Design Camp.

Rock climbing, caving, outdoor survival skills, natural living skills, kayaking and canoeing are all part of the Adventure Links Ultimate Adventure Camp. Once again, beginners are welcome. Time Traveler on the Farm will take you through early frontier life, colonial traditions and technological advances as you practice battlefield strategy, build shelters, and visit the blacksmith.

Learn geocaching techniques during a treasure hunt at Geocaching Camp, tackle mankind’s early skills at Caveman vs. Farmer Camp, and bring your dog to Doggone Fun Camp. And, of course, there are camps about farm life, including Farm Hand Camp and Farm Zoology Camp.

Information on Frying Pan’s camps and all of the summer camps hosted by the Fairfax County Park Authority is online at Park Authority Camps.
