Information Regarding Rec-PAC in 2025

The proposed FY 2025 Fairfax County budget includes a plan to realign Fairfax County summer camp programs with overlapping functions and responsibilities, including Rec-PAC (currently managed by the Park Authority) and Camp Fairfax (currently managed by Neighborhood & Community Services). If adopted, this change will be effective for summer 2025 and WILL NOT impact summer 2024 programming for Rec-PAC or Camp Fairfax.

If you have questions about this proposal, join the Park Authority and the Department of Neighborhood and Community Services for a community information session on Thursday, March 21, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the Pennino Building – Room 206 A (12011 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax). For those unable to attend in person, a virtual option is available. Additional information about the proposed realignment and details regarding the upcoming information session are available online.
