re, Natu ce, , Scien WHAT DO YOu WANT TO DO THIS SuMMER? ts
Summer was designed to give kids a break from school and help them try new experiences and grow mentally, physically and socially. Whether your child wants to refine a sports skill, get creative, be in a play, learn magic, play classic and electronic games or explore the great outdoors, Arlington has something to offer. Classic Camps (page 5) offer a variety of programming options, both structured and unstructured, that include art, sports, trips and more. Overnight Camps (page 6) are a combo of a classic camp, nature/adventure camp and sleepover. Nature, Adventure or History Camps (page 6) are for kids who love the outdoors and want to learn about and enjoy nature…and maybe stretch their limits with challenges such as canoeing, caving and more. Creative Arts Camps (page 8) come in every shape and size, for those who want to learn to paint a picture, act in a play, throw a pot, sing a song and more! Sports Camps (page 9) are available for the sports enthusiast who enjoys every sport in a sport combo camp, or for the camper who wants to learn or refine skills in a specific sport camp such as basketball or tennis. Camps for Individuals with Disabilities (page 13) are camps specifically designed for individuals with physical, emotional, social or cognitive/mental challenges. Imagination Exploration Camps (page 16) bring kids with special interests in science, magic, history and imagination strategy games together. Community Center Based Camps (page 7) are programs for children ages 5-11, designed to give families lots of flexibility, including an option for students attending summer school!

THERE’S SOMETHINg FOR EVERYONE!

Check out the Arlington County Summer Camp Catalog for camps and programs that keep kids engaged, active and focused on expanding their horizons! Arlington County programs offer lots of choices, safe and inviting environments, and the chance for children to develop strong bonds with their community. Kids get their fill of thrills through sports; showcase their talents through the arts; reap the rewards of volunteerism; invigorate their imaginations through creative play; explore the outdoors through nature programs; and have adventures galore. All while making friends and lifelong memories. Summer is the perfect time to bring people together by nurturing a healthy development that helps young people grow up confident, caring and responsible.

Qualified Staff Make it Happen

DPR established the Summer FUNd in 2004 to cover registration and field trip fees for children who could otherwise not participate due to financial hardship. Please help us ensure that all children in Arlington have a fun, engaging and asset-building summer. Contribute to a child’s summer adventures by donating during the registration process or on the Arlington County Camp Registration Form.

Camp and playground counselors are special people. Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) staff must love working with young people. They are creative, enthusiastic, committed and sincere...plus super-patient and loads of fun! In fact, many of Arlington’s camp and playground counselors have been campers themselves, often in the programs they now direct. A lot of our committed staff are schoolteachers, college students, and college graduates who hope to find a permanent job working with kids. They’re a talented and fun bunch, each with loads of experience in his or her specialty area, and all committed to helping your child to be the best he or she can be. To ensure your children have a positive and fun experience, Arlington County invests many hours in staff training and development. In addition to meeting the qualifications for their position, all summer staff attends mandatory training that focuses on promoting positive participation; creative expression; cooperative and adaptive games; heart-healthy and wellness activities; risk management and safety; child protective services; procedures and policies; planning activities; positive and productive scheduling; and developing welcoming spaces.

Arlington Camps for All Abilities

As part of our inclusion philosophy, youth with disabilities are welcome to register for programs of interest. We have designated Madison and Fairlington Tot camps; and Jamestown Elementary Summerfest as sites that receive additional services. These sites have a lower camp maximum, lower staff to camper ratio and additional training for staff on program modifications, behavior management and inclusion of individuals with disabilities. Also check our TR Camps on pages 13-14. Please note, your child can attend any camp of interest. Trained Therapeutic Recreation (TR) staff can assist you in making sure your child has the right support and accommodations to ensure that they have a safe and successful experience at camp. Reasonable accommodations could include: adapted equipment and techniques, specialized staff training, sign language interpreters, accessible facilities, additional staff, or large print and Braille materials. Please request accommodations at least two weeks in advance. It may be necessary to change a camper’s placement if the support, assistance and accommodation necessary for participation can best be provided at an alternate site. Contact the TR Office at trinfo@arlingtonva.us, 703-228-4740 for more information.

Camp Facts 101
Everyone can have a great time this summer, but not at another’s expense. All participants must follow directions and be respectful of fellow campers, staff, property, and program boundaries. While each camp has specific policies for each session, there are common policies among all Arlington camps. These policies were developed to be sure all kids are safe and have the best opportunity for an enriching and fun summer. 1. Children must wear appropriate clothing and shoes for the camp and its activities. Sandals are not allowed except on water days. Children must bring their lunch to full day camps. Caregivers should pick up a calendar of activities on the first day of each camp session on site. Excess group insurance that is above and beyond personal medical insurance is available to camp participants to cover medical expenses incurred as a result of injusry at camp. Behavior resulting in extreme disruption or intentional harm to self, others or property can result in removal from the program according to the Code of Conduct Policy at the discretion of program staff. Camp and playground counselors are trained to use supportive strategies and available resources to encourage positive participation as alternatives to removal. Locations are subject to change (this catalog conveys the most correct information available before going to press). For updates, contact the registration office at 703-228-4747 or log on to www.arlingtonva.us, search summer camp. The Arlington County Board approves all Arlington County camp fees. The goal is to provide programs for all County children. You may qualify for reduced fees even in non-DPR camps. Call the Registration Office for more information 703-228-4747. Camps with insufficient enrollment will be canceled. Registration staff will help direct families to comparable open programs. To keep kids safe, summer programs will limit or cancel outdoor activities, or may even cancel programs, on “Code Red” days. Camper safety is the deciding factor.

Every camper in DPR summer camps benefit from a healthy and active lifestyle. Regular physical activity controls weight, combats chronic health conditions and diseases, improves mood, boosts energy, and promotes better sleep. Our recreation programs strive to provide an opportunity for each camper to get the exercise they need to sustain a healthy life. We integrate at least 45 minutes of moderate to vigorous exercise into DPR summer camps through interactive sports and games run by our staff. It is our goal to provide an environment where campers are able to increase their aerobic capacity, muscular strength, and overall physical fitness through fun and challenging activities. In order to provide safe opportunities for physical activity, it is imperative that your camper wear tennis shoes that fit properly. Laces or Velcro must be tied snuggly on the camper’s foot. Loose shoes or Heely’s are not ideal for physical activities. Socks should also be worn. Campers wearing inappropriate footwear will be unable to fully participate for their own safety. DPR Staff will consult with a parent when improper footwear is worn.

• Volunteers must work for four weeks. New volunteers must work a minimum of two consecutive weeks at the same location. It may be possible to work additional weeks.

Datos básicos del Campamento
Todo el mundo puede pasarla grandioso este verano, pero no a expensas del prójimo. Todos los participantes deben seguir las indicaciones y ser respetuosos de los compañeros de campamento, el personal, la propiedad y los límites del programa. Mientras que cada campamento cuenta con políticas específicas para cada sesión, existen políticas comunes entre todos los campamentos de Arlington. Estas políticas fueron creadas para garantizar que todos los chicos estén seguros y tengan la mejor oportunidad de pasar un verano divertido y enriquecedor. 1. Los niños deben utilizar vestimenta y calzado adecuados para el campamento y sus actividades. No se permite usar sandalias, excepto en los días de actividades en el agua. 2. Los niños deben traer su almuerzo para los campamentos que son de día completo. 3. Los padres/cuidadores deben recoger un cronograma de actividades el primer día de cada sesión de campamento

4. Todo aquel que esté inscrito en los campamentos del Departamento de Parques y Recreación está cubierto automáticamente bajo una póliza de grupo contra accidentes. 5. El comportamiento que resulte en un trastorno extremo o daño intencional para sí mismo, los demás o la propiedad podrá tener como consecuencia el retiro del programa según el criterio del personal del programa. Los consejeros del campamento están capacitados para utilizar las estrategias de apoyo y los recursos disponibles para alentar la participación positiva como alternativas al retiro. 6. Los lugares están sujetos a cambio (este catálogo proporciona la información disponible más correcta previo a imprimirse). Para obtener información actualizada, comuníquese con la oficina de inscripciones al 703-228-4747 o visite www.arlingtonva.us y busque “campamento”. 7.

No deje que la tarifa sea un impedimento. ¡Los residentes del Condado de Arlington pueden solicitar asistencia financiera! La solicitud de asistencia financiera se debe procesar ANTES de la inscripción porque los descuentos NO SON RETROACTIVOS. Las reducciones en las tarifas están disponibles en una escala móvil basada en el ingreso y la cantidad de integrantes del grupo familiar. Toda persona que sea un cliente activo de ayuda financiera del Departamento de Servicios Humanos del Condado de Arlington o programa de almuerzos gratuitos o a precio reducido de APS, así como también aquellas personas que estén por debajo del umbral de límites de ingreso del recientemente publicado artículo 8 de la Ley de Viviendas de HUD, pueden solicitar para recibir asistencia financiera. Para calificar a fin de recibir un descuento del 25%, 50% ó 75% en las tarifas, deberá presentar su documento de identidad y comprobantes de residencia en Arlington así como ingreso familiar (por ejemplo, la carta original de los almuerzos gratuitos o a precio reducido de APS, WIC, SSI, SSDI, del artículo 8 de la Ley de Viviendas o la declaración de impuestos actual).

El Condado de Arlington sostiene una filosofía de inclusión por la cual las personas con discapacidades son bienvenidas para inscribirse en cualquier programa o campamento. A fin de garantizar que los participantes tengan una experiencia positiva, ofrecemos campamentos en Centros de Inclusión designados. Los campamentos “Tot” para pequeños en Madison y Fairlington y “Summerfest” (Festival de verano) en la escuela primaria McKinley son centros que reciben servicios adicionales, incluso una menor capacidad máxima en los campamentos, más personal en proporción a los campistas y capacitación adicional para el personal sobre modificaciones de los programas y manejo del comportamiento. Todas las personas que reciben apoyo a través de la Oficina de Recreación Terapéutica (Campamentos de inclusión o TR) deben completar un Paquete de Alojamiento, además de los formularios de inscripción en la página 25. La Oficina de Recreación Terapéutica enviará el Paquete de Alojamiento una vez que el niño esté inscrito. La información proporcionada en el Paquete de Alojamiento le permite a TR planificar una

Los asesores del campamento y el campo de juegos son gente especial. El personal de el Departmento de Parques y Recreación tiene que adorar el trabajo con jóvenes (de lo contrario no los contrataríamos). Ellos son creativos, entusiastas, comprometidos y sinceros… ¡Y súper pacientes y muy divertidos! De hecho, muchos de los consejeros de los campamentos y campos de juego de Arlington han sido campistas, frecuentemente en programas que ahora dirigen. Mucho de nuestro personal comprometido son maestros de escuela, graduados de universidad que esperan hallar un trabajo permanente con jóvenes. Son un grupo talentoso y divertido, todos con cantidad de experiencia en su especialidad, y todos están comprometidos a ayudar a sus hijos a que sean lo mejor que puedan ser. Para asegurar que sus hijos tengan una experiencia positiva y divertida, el Condado de Arlington invierte en capacitación y desarrollo de su personal. Además de cumplir con las calificaciones para su cargo, todo el personal de verano asiste a 38 horas de capacitación obligatoria que se centra en la promoción de la participación positiva, expresión creativa y juegos de adaptación, actividades saludables y de bienestar, manejo de riesgos y seguridad, servicios de protección de la infancia, procedimientos y políticas, programación positiva y productiva y desarrollo de apertura a nuevos espacios.

Oportunidad de empleo

i tienes 13 años o más, únete a los cientos de Arlingtonianos llenos de energía y compromiso, y diviértete mientras contribuyes con tus talentos para la comunidad. Necesitamos tu apoyo para asistir al personal con intereses generales, especiales y campamentos de recreación terapéutica (los voluntarios son ubicados sólo en los campamentos operados por el Departamento de Parques y Recreación, no en los campamentos por contrato). Los voluntarios asumen un rol de liderazgo con el apoyo del personal capacitado en todas las actividades divertidas y fascinantes de las que disfrutan los campistas, incluso las excursiones, las artes y manualidades, la natación, el canto, los juegos y ¡mucho más! Ya sea que estés en busca de una oportunidad de desarrollo profesional o personal o si simplemente tienes deseos de trabajar con gente joven, el voluntariado puede darte grandes satisfacciones. Es una oportunidad para hacer amigos, trabajar con niños en un ambiente recreativo supervisado y obtener experiencia invalorable en un rol de liderazgo. Recuerda que para poder ser seleccionado como Asistente Estudiante para los campamentos del Condado de Arlington, debes haber sido voluntario con nosotros durante al menos un verano. El Departamento de Parques y Recreación no puede contratar a todos nuestros voluntarios, pero no contrataremos a nadie en el puesto de asistente estudiante que no haya sido voluntario. Guía para oportunidades de voluntariado: • Los voluntarios deben trabajar durante cuatro semanas; los voluntarios nuevos deben trabajar un mínimo de 2 semanas consecutivas en la misma ubicación. Podría ser posible trabajar dos semanas adicionales. • Los voluntarios no son ubicados donde fueron campistas el verano anterior o donde miembros de su familia se encuentran como campistas. • Los voluntarios deben tener, al menos, 13 años y, por lo menos, ser dos años mayores que el campista con más edad en el programa en el cual son ubicados.

Marque con una x en el casillero que indique el nivel de natación de su hijo.
