EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THIS YEAR’S VIRTUAL FUN FAIR & CAMP EXPO
This year’s CharlottesvilleFamily Fun Fair & Camp Expo may look a little different, but our goal of helping your family find the perfect Charlottesville area summer camp is still the same. Whether is day camps or residential camps you are interested in, finding a safe and fun place for your kid(s) to spend their time this summer is a major decision. To help you, we’ve created fun, interactive ways to bring our one-of-a-kind annual experience right into your home! You’ll have the opportunity to get to know each camp, and along the way you’ll find helpful tips, be able to enter for weekly giveaways, partake in online activities and more. We hope you will join us for our 2022 Virtual Fun Fair & Camp Expo running February 15–May 15!

Tips For Making the Most of the 2022 Fun Fair & Camp Expo
You will be enjoying the CharlottesvilleFamily Fun Fair & Camp Expo from the comfort of your own home this year, so here are some tips for making the most of your local camp search experience.
- Read our 10 Questions to Ask Before Deciding on a Camp to get an initial idea of what you want, how much you want to spend, answers to general camp FAQs, etc.
- Set aside a dedicated amount of time so you don’t feel rushed while exploring all your camp options. We recommend at least two hours.
- We suggest exploring the Fun Fair & Camp Expo on your own to make a shortlist of camp options for your kiddos. Then, consider bringing your kids to the computer to explore those options together so they can be involved in making the summer plan decisions.
After the year we have all had, your kids (and you!) deserve a summer of activities and adventure. Join us February 15–May 15 for our Online Fun Fair & Camp Expo and allow us the chance to once again help make summer camp planning fun, easy and exciting.
