This service provides one hour of additional morning and afternoon care for campers at their specific camp location. Only campers who are already enrolled in full-day camps can attend extended care. Camps ending before 4 p.m. are not eligible for extended care. Campers choose from supervised activities including board games, cards, drawing, coloring and age-appropriate movies. Registration for extended care is weekly, be sure to register for two weeks if your child is in a two-week camp.
*Advance registration is required as space is limited*
online at Fairfax County Park Authority Camps or by phone 703-222-4664
Refunds/Transfers: Extended Care refunds are given in full if requested prior to the camp week. No refunds are given once the week begins.
Late Fee: $1 for each minute after 5 p.m.
If the camp you want is full, you can add your camper to the waitlist at no cost. Staff manages the waitlist and will contact the next in line when a space becomes available. There is no guarantee your camper will secure a space in a camp with a waitlist, so please make sure to register for a second choice.
You can help by making sure to remove your camper from any waitlists you no longer need. This makes the process run much faster for staff.

Our camps, which are designed for children 3 to 16, provide opportunities for new experiences where kids grow and develop socially, physically and cognitively. Whether your child wants to refine their existing skills or try their hand at something new, the Park Authority has a camp that they’re sure to enjoy!
