If you live within the Town of Vienna boundary, today is your day to begin registration for TOV summer camps.

If you live outside of the town, you can begin registering next Monday. The town camps historically have been awesome for my own kids, who tends to gravitate towards anything sport related. We did a great art camp one year that involved my youngest drawing more on his own arms than paper, so that was fun for him.

If you missed out or had issues registering with Fairfax County camps earlier this year, don’t worry — there are still other options to take note of!

I wanted to highlight some less advertised options to give kids fun opportunities:

  • I9 Multi Sport Camp — outdoor all day, sports based, 9 a.m.- 1 p.m.
  • Nothing But Net Sports Camp — Coach Brian does run a camp through TOV, but he also has his own summer camps at other locations. Definitely get on his email list to find out when/where. Another outdoor, sports based option.
  • Summer On The Hill — Flint Hill School summer camps
  • VYS — soccer camp, half or full day options

Some none sports options:

  • StemTree science, computer programming and engineering, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. with discounts for siblings
  • iCode VIenna lots of options like YouTube Creator, AI Machine Learning, Digital Design, Shark Tank, and Game Builder (so many more too)
  • Culinaria Cooking School lots of different hours and options on cooking styles
  • Green Hedges Day Camp arts and crafts, music, cooking, sports, general day camp activities
  • Mad Science — (held at the Vine Church): lots of cool options for your budding scientist
  • School of Rock — for your musician; we did this camp one year and it was fun to see the show at Jammin’ Java at the end of the week to see how far the kids have come in a week
  • Flint Hill School Headfirst Camps — camps for pre-k through 5th grade, with lots of different themes and options

We are lucky to have a lot of options around the Vienna area for your kids to explore whatever they’re interested in. Or maybe throw them in something new and see if that sparks an interest.

The TOV also has a great playground/after camp care for anyone who needs more than 5 hours of childcare during the summer.
