Gunston Recreation Center

The Gunston Teen After School Program is sponsored by the Arlington County Department of Parks and Recreation and held in the adjacent Gunston Community Center.

  • The Teen After School Program is open at 2:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday-Friday.
  • From 2:30-3:00 p.m., the program provides free activity and quiet time.
  • Starting at 3:00 p.m., there are programmed activities as physical activities such as fitness classes, games, tournaments, cooking projects, arts & crafts and more!

While the Gunston School Activities Office works closely with this program, the After School Program in the recreation center is not a school program.

The Recreation Center is a place for students to hang out with friends and relax in a safe environment after a full structured day at school. Students may sign out at any time, but may not return until after 6pm and only if they are 13 or older. Students who sign out prior to the 4:10 dismissal do not receive passes for the late bus.

There is no cost and parents are encouraged to enroll their children, even if they will attend only occasionally. For more information about the After School Program, call the Gunston Recreation Center at 703-228-6953.
