Camp Eagle 2020 Schedule

Great news! Edlin is having summer camp this year and it’s loaded with many exciting themes. If you want to be engaged in STEAM, Language, Adventure, and Plain Ole Fun, then Camp Eagle is the place to be! In addition to fieldtrips, we will go swimming each week at a nearby Reston Association (RA) Pool which is exclusively for Camp Eagle participants. Swimming is included in the camp cost. There will be additional fees for field trips.  One of our treasured traditions is our parent student overnight cook and campout in our (Edlin’s) own backyard!

There is a $50.00 registration fee for camp; however, if signed up by May 1, 2020 the registration fee will be waved. The Kwad (Drone) Camp is designed as a two week camp and it is in the best interest of the camper to attend both weeks as the second week builds upon the first. Appalachian Heritage is also a two week camp. You may sign up for 1 week or two weeks; however, if signing up for both weeks, you will save $50.00. 

We here at Camp Eagle are looking forward to hearing from you and are delighted to have you consider us for your summer camp  adventures!
