Annual Camp Expo Set for Saturday at Reston Community Center

With temperatures dipping this week, summer may seem a long way off. But camp signup is not.

Reston Community Center will host its fifth annual Reston Camp Expo on Saturday. The free event, which runs from 9 a.m. to noon at RCC Hunters Woods (2310 Colts Neck Road), showcases summer opportunities for children and teenagers.

On-site exhibitors include Fairfax County Public Schools, Reston Association, Fairfax County Park Authority, Cornerstones, Reston Soccer, the Fairfax County Office for Children, Boy Scouts of America and Herndon/Reston Youth Softball.

The expo is designed to highlight affordable options for children and teenagers. Only nonprofit camp providers will participate in the expo. Teenager and college students can also ask camp providers about summer job opportunities.

“It really is one-stop shopping,” said Eileen Boone, RCC’s Leisure and Learning Director, in a statement. “This event is super convenient for parents and caregivers to meet with dozens of camp and out-of-school providers.”

The event, which is hosted by RCC and coordinated by the Reston Opportunity Neighborhood program, will also feature snacks, games and activities with door prizes.
