Loose fitting, casual clothing (t-shirts/knit pants) and sneakers are perfect for the camp and its activities. Please no sandals or crocs.
Campers please bring water bottle, snack, lunch, (optional – blanket or towel.)
Please bring a sweater or sweatshirt in the case of extreme air-conditioning.

People may choose to mask at any time. People with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should wear a mask.
The mask policy is consistent with guidance issued by CDC and Virginia Department of Health. The CDC recommends everyone 5 years and older be up to date, meaning a person has received all recommended COVID-19 vaccines, including any booster dose(s) when eligible. To find a vaccine location near you, visit, walk-in to one of the County’s clinics, or call our COVID-19 hotline at 703-228-7999.
