Camps & After School

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.
