Summer Camp

The Virginia Academy four week summer camp program is back! Each week elementary school students can sign up for a different enrichment experience.

What is the camp experience?

Summer Camp drop off will be at Virginia Academy beginning at 8am and pick up will be 4-4:30pm. The first portion of the day will be completely devoted to the camp’s theme, whether it be basketball, art, STEM, or any of the other awesome experiences we have to offer! 

Following lunch, your student will find a more traditional summer camp experience!  Group games, activities, carnivals, and amazing trips are just some of the things that are coming their way!  Each camp will go on at least three field trips during the week; we might visit the pool, a climbing park, a museum, or local national park.

Weekly Schedule

Students will select one camp per week. Camp eligibility is dependent on the student’s grade in the 2023-2024 school year.

Cooking (2nd-5th) Grab your passport and join Ms. Ruth as you travel and cook around the world.  Each day you will land in another country where you will learn a little about that country, learn some cooking skills and make a dish native to that country.  Traveling and cooking at VAA is always first class and safety first!
