SUMMER CAMP REGISTRATION
Arlington County Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) Summer Camp Registration opens on Wednesday, February 23rd. DPR has created several helpful tools to support families in registering students for summer camp options.

Below is guidance from DPR related to camp refunds should camp registration potentially conflict with APS summer school:

  • Don’t wait to sign up for a camp until you hear if your student is referred for APS summer school.  Spots fill quickly.  Students who are referred to APS Summer School and must cancel a camp in conflict with APS Summer School can notify DPR by Friday, March 25 to get a full refund. All other cancellations follow DPR Cancellation Policy.
