The Junior Jam drop-in program is ideal for kids who already have a busy summer schedule but still want to make new friends and enjoy summer favorites such as field trips, special events, sports, swimming, music, arts, cooking projects, group games and tournaments and more!
Sign up for all eight weeks for a low, one-time registration fee of $46* for Arlington residents (There is extra cost for trips). Don’t let fees be a barrier. Arlington County residents may request a fee reduction!
Please note that while teens are encouraged to stay at the site, this is a drop-in program that allows teens to come and go. For youth needing more accountability, consider a camp program that requires parental consent to leave during the program hours.
