Located at 12 sites across the city, individuals age six to 12 will have the opportunity to participate in academic, artistic, and athletic programming that develop new interests and increase self-esteem. This year's theme, "All Aboard", will bring the story of locomotives to life through hands-on-activities, historic train artifacts, movies and museum exhibits. The kids will also partake in regular camp activities such as arts, crafts, hiking, and swimming.

Fees:
$250 for the first child
$225 for the second child
$200 for the third child or more
$400 for non-city residents

Taking place at Pine Camp Cottage, teens age 13 to 15 will have the opportunity to challenge themselves at the 2015 Teen Summer Camp, “Generation Z”. Teens will be able to work with their peers to complete projects, partake in multiple water activities on the James River, learn various music styles, and have an introduction to non-traditional interactive games. This will put them on a path to gain self-confidence, independence, and success. Registration is open for City residents only.
