Camp Goodtime

Camp Goodtimes on the Road

Camp Goodtimes on the Road treats campers to a full-day field trip generally within the Washington, DC/Baltimore/Richmond/Philadelphia metropolitan areas every day of the week. Campers will be closely supervised by camp staff and will have the opportunity to engage in many enriching experiences. Campers are asked to wear comfortable clothes and closed-toed shoes (no sandals, Heelys or Crocs), apply sunscreen prior to coming to camp each day, and bring a lunch, mid-morning and mid-afternoon snack, as well as a filled water bottle. Camp fee includes two T-shirts, field trip transportation and all venue admissions.

General Information

  • The Camp Goodtimes Camper Handbook will be available after February 1. Parents/guardians are strongly encouraged to read it with their campers as it contains useful information. Camp newsletters are distributed a few days prior to the start of each camp session and contain news and field trip information.

Drop-Off and Pick-Up Information

Parents must check in campers at Reston Community Center Hunters Woods each day at 9:00 a.m. and pick up campers by 4:00 p.m. unless they are registered to participate in Zen Zone (for pick up by 5:00 p.m. for an additional fee). There may be occasions when field trip destinations are farther away and require an earlier sign-in and later pickup.

Camp Forms

Camp Forms Packet is due May 15. Failure to submit these forms may result in the forfeiture of your child's space. Participants only need to submit one set of forms per child, regardless of the number of RCC camps in which they are enrolled. 

Camp registration will be closed on the Thursday prior to the week of camp.
