While the current COVID-19 pandemic has significantly affected children throughout Georgia, it has not diminished the spirit of children living in DeKalb County. Children and youth who normally attend summer camp for a variety of classes and activities remain sheltered in place at home.

The Virtual Village is a one-stop shop for DeKalb youth and parents to obtain information about current available youth programs and activities for DeKalb County.

This virtual platform allows children, youth and families to maintain safe social distancing practices.  Virtual Classes begin on June 15, 2020 through July 31, 2020
