Who We Are

Tech Adventure Camp (TAC) is a week-long exploratory camp in Career and Technical Education (CTE) for students in grades 2 – 7 during the 2019 -2020 school year. TAC gives all students the opportunity to design, create, explore and have fun while meeting new friends and extending their learning. All of our programs allow students to complete hands-on activities and projects which they can take home.

Cost: $275 per week
Time: 8:30 am – 2 pm

TAC has two programs depending on the grade level of the student. Tech Explorers are students in grades 2 – 4. They will rotate through 5 different class to learn about all CTE content areas. Camp themes do change weekly so students can sign up for multiple weeks of camp. Tech Pioneers are students in grades 5 – 7. They choose one path to focus on for the week to dive deeper into a CTE content area. Students are encouraged to sign up for multiple weeks of camp to go on several paths. More information on themes and activities can be found on our website!

Hosted by Fairfax County Public School’s CTE department, TAC teachers are certified educators and have a passion for their content area. Other staff members are FCPS employees and have gone through all necessary background checks to work in a school setting. Transportation for this camp is provided as long as the student resides within FCPS boundaries. Students do not need to be FCPS students to attend camp, all students are welcome. Extended care is also provided at an additional cost.

Unsure what CTE is? CTE allows students to learn job-related and life skills which prepare them for 21st century careers. Students in these courses learn to problem solve and how to connect core subjects to real world applications. CTE is divided into six content areas in FCPS – Marketing, Business and Information Technology, Technology and Engineering, Family and Consumer Sciences, Health and Medical, and Trade and Industrial.

What Others Say

My student had an incredible time and can’t wait to return next year. We feel like we stumbled upon gold in finding this camp. He loved it!

Our student had a wonderful time learning new skills and making new friends with other students outside of their assigned school! Thank you for this opportunity to let our children grow in a safe and supportive environment! It was also a very cost effective option for camp.
