Rec-PAC Summer Program


During the last week of the Rec-PAC Summer Program, campers traditionally take part in some special event to better their community. Rec-PAC Gives Back projects have included writing letters to soldiers, cleaning up school areas, collecting blankets for the homeless and collecting food donations. This year, campers and staff hope to help put a stop to bullying in Fairfax County by showing that "WE ALL HAVE HEART!"

Guinness World Records has approved this attempt at breaking the old record of 554 heart-shaped hand gestures, and Rec-PAC organizers say the effort will mean more to these kids than a record. It will mean that they all worked together to do something great.

On July 23, 2015 at the Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Virginia, Rec-PAC campers, staff and chaperones joined in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record.  There were 1249 participants and 42 volunteers ranging from FCPS teachers, FCPS Bus drivers, Fairfax County Police Officers, Fairfax County Fire and Rescue, and local residents.
