These camps offer a blend of traditional camp games and STEAM activities that will focus on honing a child’s creativity through thought, expression, and craft.
YMCA Fairfax County Reston Specialty Camps
We are going recycling-crazy! Campers will learn the importance of recycling and how to re-utilize everyday objects and turn them into STEM and art creations. Many of the creations are submitted to the YMCA’s Annual Thingamajig Invention Convention for a chance to win prizes!
READY TO LAUNCH
Taking campers to the final frontier. Partnered with NASA and LEGOs, this camp will ignite your child’s fascination with space engineering and science. Campers will learn about and design their own mini space rockets, learn about space flight, space travel, and life in our solar system and beyond.
Unleash your child’s creative spirit! In this engaging and enriching class, campers will focus on the various painting mediums of oil, acrylic, watercolor, and inks. Beyond realizing their own creations, kids will explore new techniques and learn about the artists who made each style famous.
