Drop off the forms at the Teen Center along with your payment Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. The Member does not need to be present. We can take a photo for the Membership ID another time. The signature of a parent/guardian and the child seeking Membership is required on the Participant Contract.
Parents shall call the Center at 703-448-8336 (TEEN) if they know they will be late picking up their child from any program. Repeated late pick-ups will result in dismissal from Teen Center programs. If staff are unable to contact parents for 30 minutes following the end of a program, Fairfax County Non-emergency police will be called to pick up the child. Staff will leave one final message stating the officer’s name and station to which the participant will be transported to await pick-up.
MCC/OFTC Dance Disclaimer
This disclaimer would serve as a notice to all parents of children attending MCC Youth Events 5th & 6th grade dances (Monster Mash, Snow Ball, Island Sensations, Cinco De Mayo) and all Old Firehouse Teen Center Friday Night Dances.
MCC/OFTC dances have music and volume levels suitable to the purpose prescribed by the nature of the program. Precautionary measures such as decibel readers, designated quiet locations, and ear plugs have been put in place to mitigate prolonged exposure. However, there are factors outside of our control, such as screaming children, which can lead to potentially damaging decibel levels. MCC staff and administration HIGHLY recommend that parents encourage their children to wear the available earplugs while attending these programs to protect their hearing.
