Roanoke County Parks, Recreation and Tourism is one of the area's largest providers of youth enrichment year round!
In the Summer
Looking for summer fun? We offer over 200 weeks of summer camps for ages 3 to 17. Choose from half-day, full-day and overnight programs with themes such as art, music, dance, travel, athletics, swimming, pop culture and outdoor education. You DON'T have to be a County resident to sign up!
During the School Year
While school is in session, we operate an after school program on-site at 13 Roanoke County elementary schools. After School for Kids is an enrichment program for grades K-5 offering daily age-appropriate activities that foster physical, social emotional and cognitive development. At Green Ridge Recreation Center, our Ridge Kids after school program is open to grades K-5, with transportation from Glen Cove elementary school.
Give back to your community! We will help out various organizations in our area. At the end of the week, teens will receive a certificate for their participation. Please make sure teens pack a lunch daily. Friday afternoon will be a well-earned fun day at Splash Valley Water Park after a week of hard work.
Calling all aspiring Chefs! This will be one messy camp! The campers will make some fun sloppy and gloffy stuff to eat such as dirty cake, mini pizzas, fruity treats and lots more! Children must be fully potty-trained.
