Reston Association Summer Camp Registration to Begin in Late January

Registration for Reston Association’s summer camps will begin on Jan. 29 at 8:30 a.m. For more than 40 years, RA camps have offered children opportunities to grow physically, emotional and socially.

Programs include exploring the outdoors, arts and crafts activities, tennis, swimming and group sports.

“We pride ourselves in offering a fun, safe environment for kids ages three to 15,” said Dan Mernick, RA’s senior program manager.

The average counselor to child ratio is 1:8, according to Mernick.

RA’s website lists the following goals for the programs:

  • Operate a fun and safe camp
  • Maintain a non-biased atmosphere, free from stereotypes and inclusive of a diversity of people
  • Improve camper communication with peers and adults
  • Build self-esteem through positive interactions and reinforcement
  • Teach constructive ways to resolve conflict
  • Develop new strengths and abilities in the campers while increasing self-confidence
  • Foster an appreciation and respect for the natural surroundings
