Project Discovery

Fall 2017 registration is now open! Register below or submit paper forms to the Campbell office by 3 p.m. Friday, September 22.

What is Project Discovery?

Does your child dance around the house? Examine every leaf and flower? Yearn for more time in art or music class? Project Discovery, Campbell’s PTA-run after-school enrichment program, offers opportunities to explore these and other interests outside of the regular school day, while hanging out with old and new friends. Dedicated to providing engaging and meaningful after-school learning activities at an affordable and reasonable cost, it is made possible through strong community partnerships and PTA scholarships.

When, Where & Who?

Project Discovery holds two sessions—in the fall and spring. It typically runs for six weeks, with each class meeting at Campbell once a week from 2:45-4 p.m. Classes for the Fall 2017 session will run for six weeks, on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, beginning Wednesday, October 11th and ending Friday, December 8th (there are no classes on Oct. 25, 26, 27, Nov. 10, 22, 23, 24 or Dec. 6 and 7). 

All Project Discovery classes are led by qualified professionals, who are sometimes parents and teachers found within our own Campbell community! All instructors submit background checks and are cleared through APS.

The following classes will be offered in Fall 2017—see linked PDFs below for the full descriptions.

Odyssey of the Mind

Campbell is also proud to participate in Odyssey of the Mind, an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college. You can find more information here: www.odysseyofthemind.com. Parents are needed to volunteer for coaching and judging; training is available. Please contact Ms. Clark at pamela.clark@apsva.us for more details. Odyssey teams form during fall Project Discovery registration and meet through mid-March. Some teams meet on Wednesdays after school; others meet on the weekend. Teams will form based on parents' availability to coach.
