The Office of Workforce Solutions and Continuing Education at Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC) is holding Digital Arts Camps for students ages 7-15.  In partnership with Black Rocket, the weekly half-day camps will be held at LFCC campuses in Middletown and Warrenton, as well as Greenwood Mill Elementary School and Admiral Byrd Middle School in Frederick County, VA. 

                The camps provide unique enrichment and educational programs to children and youth, with distinct programs that focus on the intersection of creativity and technology.  Each course emphasizes self-empowerment, cognitive reasoning, and divergent thinking through hands-on learning.  Participants get the tools to take part in high-tech adventures. Camp topics include: LEGO Films and Stop Animation, LEGO Video Games, Make Your First 2-D Video Game, Make Your Fist 3-D Video Game, App Attack! Make Your First Game App, and Creative Design and Robotics.  Karate and Soccer camps are also offered, and lunchtime supervision is available at an additional cost.

A limited amount of financial scholarships are available on a first-come basis. Please contact either office to find out if you qualify.
