Recreation Summer Camp and Program Registration Suspended Until Further Notice

For Immediate Release: May 2, 2020

Registration for summer camps and programs offered by the Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities (RPCA) is suspended until further notice.

Previously planned summer camps and programs will be adjusted to accommodate current guidance to stay home and to keep 6 feet apart from others when in public, as well as any potential new state guidance for summer months. Registration had been postponed to May 6 and is now being suspended until further guidance is received and necessary adjustments can be made. All Spring programs have been cancelled. RPCA staff will be contacting those who registered earlier in the year with information about their accounts.

Virtual programming options are now available through RPCA at Home! Looking for ways to challenge your mind and body while connecting with your community? Enjoy free performances, fitness classes, poetry and story readings, speaker series, and activities for youth. New activities are added regularly; visit

The following RPCA service adjustments remain in effect:

  • All recreation, nature and art centers are closed.
  • All activities, events and private rentals are canceled.
  • All reservations and registrations are suspended.
  • All public playgrounds are closed.
  • All public sport courts, fenced fields, fenced dog parks, outdoor fitness stations, restrooms and parking lots are closed.
  • Transient boater access to City Marina piers is prohibited (open to license holders only).

All unfenced City of Alexandria parks, trails and fields remain open to the public to provide opportunities for safe, physically distant exercise. The City and the Alexandria Health Department (AHD) believe that access to outdoor exercise is crucial to maintaining both the physical and mental health of our community.
