Frying Pan Park Camps

2020 Summer Camps

COVID -19: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Fairfax County Park Authority (FCPA) has canceled all camps this summer this season.  Our camps will be back next summer – we hope to see you then.   We apologize for any inconvenience.

Katydid offers camps for both preschool and elementary aged children from June through late August.  Camps are based out of the air conditioned, historic Old Floris Schoolhouse.  See below for more information including schedule and registration link for each camp.

PRESCHOOL CAMPS (3-6 years):

Camp is held in and around the historic, air conditioned Old Floris Schoolhouse at the park. Children must be potty trained. Dress in comfortable play clothes and bring snack and lunch with drinks daily. An activity fee of $5 is due on the first day of camp.
