Summertime and Living is Easy!
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. Arlington’s quality programs encourage youth to get involved, develop their sense of self and community, show positive sportsmanship, be creative and learn from those who have different life experiences than they do. We call it “asset building.” Summer is the perfect time to bring people together by nurturing a healthy development that helps young people grow up confident, caring and responsible. NUMBERS TO KNOW!

Fit Arlington
Every camper in our DPR summer camps can 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 our DPR summer camps through interactive sports and games run by our staff. It is our goal to provide an environment where the 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.

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 McKinley 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 page 14. But 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 or TTY 703-228-4743 for more information.

What do you want to do this summer? There’s something for everyone!

Qualified Staff Make it Happen
Camp and playground counselors are special people. Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) staff must love working with young people (or we won’t hire them). 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.

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, go fishing, be in a play, learn magic, play mind-adventure games….or just plain hang, Arlington has something to offer. Classic Camps (page 6) 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 7) 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 10) 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 14) 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 18) are community center-based programs for those who are looking for flexible programs that will engage kids.

Algo para todos los gustos
El periodo de verano ha sido diseñado para darles a los niños un descanso de la escuela y para ayudarlos a experimentar cosas nuevas y a crecer mental, física y socialmente. Ya sea que su hijo desee refinar sus habilidades en algún deporte, hacer rafting, actuar en una obra, realizar juegos de destreza mental, aprender magia…o simplemente pasar el tiempo, Arlington tiene algo para ofrecerle. Los campamentos nocturnos (página 6) son un combo entre un campamento clásico, un campamento de naturaleza y aventura y además se pasa la noche fuera de la casa. Campamentos de naturaleza, y historia aventura (página 7) son para los niños que aman el aire libre y desean aprender sobre la naturaleza y disfrutarla...y quizá ampliar sus límites y desafíos, tales como piragüismo, espeleología y más cosas. Campamentos de Artes Creativos (página 8) vienen en todas las formas y tamaños; para los que quieren aprender a pintar un cuadro, actuar en una obra, crear una vasija, cantar una canción y ¡mucho más! Los campamentos deportivos (página 10) están disponibles para los entusiastas de los deportes a quienes les gustan todos los deportes de los campamentos con combo deportivo o para los campistas que quieren aprender habilidades o refinar las suyas en un deporte específico, tal como el básquetbol o el tenis. Campamentos de imaginación y exploración (página 16) son una nueva clase de campamentos que generan intereses especiales en los niños en relación con la ciencia, la magia, la historia y los juegos de estrategia imaginativa en conjunto. Campamentos en centros comunitarios (pagina 19) Centros de puertas abiertas son programas basados en centros comunitarios para aquellos que buscan programasflexibles de medio día que mantengan ocupados a los jóvenes.

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 chance of 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. 2. Children must bring their lunch to full day camps. 3. Caregivers should pick up a calendar of activities on the first day of each camp session on site. 4. Anyone enrolled in DPR Camps and Nature Center Camps are automatically covered under a group accident policy. 5. Behavior resulting in extreme disruption or intentional harm to self, others or property can result in removal from the program 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. 6. 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. 7. 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. 8. Camps with insufficient enrollment will be canceled. Registration staff will help direct families to comparable open programs. 9. 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. 10. Field trips are subject to change or cancellation due to inclement weather or if appropriate transportation is unavailable. 11. indicates an Arlington County camp. Use the registration form on page 21 to register for these camps only.

Arlington County maintains a philosophy of inclusion whereby individuals with disabilities are welcome to register for any program or camp. To ensure that participants have a positive experience, we have designated different general recreation camp sites as Designated Inclusion Sites.

Everyone who receives support through the Therapeutic Recreation Office (inclusion or TR Camps) must complete an Accommodation Packet in addition to the registration forms on page 21. The Therapeutic Recreation Office will send the Accommodation Packet once your child is registered. Information provided in the Accommodation Packet allows TR to plan a successful experience for each camper, regardless of ability. Every effort is made to involve campers in recreation programs that best suit their interests and abilities. Call the TR Office at 228-4740 if you need recommendations on camps for your child. Note: the TR Office reserves the right to reassign campers if staff determines the he or she would be served more effectively in another program.

Adventure Quest

Arts and crafts, swimming, community trips and special events are only a few of the activities teen and young adult campers experience in this specialized camp designed for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This camp typically serves campers who require close supervision or assistance in personal care. Moderate to extensive support is provided with a staff to participant ratio of 1:2 to 1:3. All campers engage in theme-based activities that encourage social interaction and development. Campers choose activities ranging from sensory and auditory to expressive arts, fitness and sports and will attend one community trip and one swim trip per week. This summer we will be co-located with Stratford’s Summer School at Kenmore Middle School. Core hours are in the afternoon, with extended hours offered in the morning. Ages 12-21

Gear up for a summer of fun with this new camp offering, Project F.I.V.E (Fun Inclusive Volunteer Experiences)! Individuals with disabilities will have the opportunity to pair up with a peer buddy without a disability, which could lead to lifelong friendships. With their partner, camp participants will have an opportunity to “give back” to the community through service learning in a fun, structured environment. The camp will offer one weekly “fun” trip, and one service learning trip. There are three, two-week sessions to choose from. For this camp we are looking for individuals with disabilities who are interested in volunteering and are able to successfully participate with minimum assistance. Themes for the two-week sessions are listed below. Staff to participation ratio 1:5. Ages 13-21

Fun is serious business and this camp will teach your teen how to run it! At this camp, teens learn all of the aspects of operating a small amusement/adventure business. Participants receive hands-on training on topics such as small business ownership, the “dos and don’ts” of starting and operating a business, workshops on the key ingredients of successful businesses, money management, diversity, communication and leadership. As a final project, the T.E.A.M. will plan and run a special event for elementary-age children. Upon completion, teens are eligible for employment helping to run and manage a small amusement/adventure business with the Arlington County Department of Parks and Recreation. This program was recognized as the Best New Program in 2006 by the Virginia Recreation and Parks Society and continues to grow in popularity. A mandatory parent and student orientation will be held on June 4, 6-7pm at Thomas Jefferson Community Center. Staff to participant ratio 1:15. Ages 13-17

Oportunidades de campamento para personas con discapacidades

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, menor 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 RT planificar una experiencia exitosa para cada campista, independientemente de sus capacidades. Se realizan todos los esfuerzos por incluir a los campistas en los programas de recreación que más se adapten a sus intereses y capacidades. Llame a la Oficina de RT al 703-228-4740 si necesita recomendaciones sobre campamentos para su hijo. Nota: la oficina de TR se reserva el derecho de reasignar a los campistas si el personal determina que recibirán una atención más eficaz en otro programa.

Es altamente recomendable que la solicitud de reducción de tarifa se procese ANTES de la inscripción. Las reducciones en las tarifas están disponibles en una escala móvil basada en el ingreso y la cantidad de integrantes del grupo familiar. Se solicita una verificación del ingreso anual. 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 HUD, son elegibles para recibir tarifas reducidas. Para calificar a fin de recibir una reducción de entre el 50% y el 75% de descuento en las tarifas, adjunte un comprobante de sus ingresos; por ejemplo, una carta original de APS de los almuerzos gratuitos o a precio reducido o formularios de impuesto. También se aceptan como comprobante de ingresos WIC, SSI y el artículo 8 de la Ley de Viviendas. Además, deberá presentar su documento de identidad y el comprobante de residencia en Arlington. Se otorgará un 10% de descuento por cada hermano. También existen planes de pago. Si bien los formularios de inscripción a los campamentos no se pueden procesar hasta el 22 de febrero (por Internet) o el 29 de febrero (en persona o por teléfono), los formularios de reducción de tarifas se pueden procesar en cualquier momento y nosotros motivamos a los solicitantes a presentar sus formularios de reducción de tarifa con anterioridad a la inscripción al campamento. Los formularios de reducción de tarifa e inscripción al campamento se pueden procesar en las direcciones que aparecen en la sección Información de Inscripción. Los pagos finales deberán realizarse de acuerdo con el siguiente cronograma: 50% del pago se realiza al momento de la inscripción. El saldo de campamentos de sesiones 2-4, se realiza antes del 25 de junio. El saldo de campamentos de sesiones 5-8, se realiza antes del 23 de junio.

Registration Facts Arlington County camps are very popular. The sooner you register the more likely you will get the spot you want. Registrations will be processed to accommodate first and second choices. If an opening is not available, you can request a spot on a wait list. Online registration confirmations can be printed using Adobe Acrobat 6.0 or higher. Enrollment is not confirmed until all paperwork is received. Please do not call for registration confirmations or changes prior to April 16. For more information refer to the Registration Changes and Refunds sections on this page. All required paperwork must be received no later than June 8 or campers may be un-enrolled and their spots given to those on the Wait List. Registrations will be accepted up to one week prior to the start date, if space is available. For late registration, all documents must be delivered to the Registration Office no later than one week prior to the start of the camp session. Campers with Disabilities Parents and guardians must request accommodations to the Therapeutic Recreation Office (703-228-4740) at least two weeks in advance of the program session if a child requires frequent reminders to participate, follow directions or stay with the group; requires assistance with dressing, feeding or toileting; or has difficulty managing anger. Please note this on the Camp Participant Information/Emergency Record form. This additional information is required in order to provide accommodations so that every participant will be successful in the chosen program. There is no additional fee for this service. Non County Residents Fees and Registration Date Non-resident registration for Arlington County camps begins March 7. Non-residents pay 50% more than the fees listed in the catalog. Arlington County Camps are very popular. Residents should register early to ensure spots. How to Pay • All fees for Arlington County operated camps must be paid in full by June 8. Households with an overdue balance from previous camps or classes must pay off their balance before registering a child for camp. • Fee reductions up to 75% are available for qualifying residents. Call 703-228-4747 for more information or go to www. arlingtonva.us/prcr, keyword fee reduction. • Checks and money orders may only be used with mail and walk-in registration. Checks are payable to Treasurer, Arlington County. Please include the current date and year and be sure to sign your check. • The registrant’s name, address and phone number must appear on each check. Pursuant to Arlington County Code, an assessment fee of $50 is charged for a returned check. Acceptable charge payments are VISA, MasterCard, Discover or American Express. See below for discounted fees based on annual income. • On-line registration requires full payment by credit card at the time of registration. Fax, mail, call and walk-in registrations can pay in two installments; 50% is due at the time of registration. The remaining payment is due by June 8.

Discounts for Families Families with more than one child in an Arlington County operated camp are eligible for a Family Discount. To receive a Family Discount, register your children and then contact the Registration Office after April 16 to receive the discount. Fee Reductions: Don’t let fee be a barrier. Arlington County residents may request a fee reduction! It is highly recommended that fee reduction applications are processed PRIOR to registration. Fee reductions are available on a sliding scale based on household income and size. Annual income verification is required. Anyone who is an active financial assistance client of Arlington County’s Department of Human Services or APS free/reduced lunch program, as well as others who are below the threshold of the currently published HUD’s Section 8 income limits, is eligible for a reduced fee. To qualify for a fee reduction, bring proof of income (such as original free/reduced lunch letter from APS, WIC, SSI, SSDI, Section 8 Housing, or current tax forms) to receive 25%, 50% or 75% off. Also bring proof of identity and Arlington residency. Additional 10% discounts will be given for each sibling. Payment plans are also available. SEE PAGE 4 FOR FEE PROCESSING LOCATIONS AND HOURS. Registration Changes Any Arlington County operated camp registration changes (such as cancellations, transfers or refunds) must be made through the DPR Registration Office after April 16; do not wait until camp begins or ask camp or recreation center staff to process camp changes/cancellations. Only confirmed, written changes through the DPR Registration Office are honored. Keep your confirmation number for reference when asking about any changes, transfers, refunds or billing questions. Without a confirmation number (transaction receipt number), registrants are held responsible for payment. The enrollment deadline for any given session ends at 5pm on the Monday prior to the beginning of the session. Refunds Notify the Registration Office of any changes or cancellations as soon as possible after April 16 to ensure a Wait Listed child can join the program. Requests for refunds or changes for Arlington County camps must be received by the Registration Office no later than 5pm the Monday prior to the camp week to ensure a spot for a Wait Listed child. All refunds are subject to a $20 administrative charge per camp session. No refunds will be issued if you cancel after 5pm on the Monday prior to camp.

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. La Junta del Condado de Arlington aprueba las tarifas de todos los campamentos. El objetivo es ofrecer programas a todos los niños del Condado. Usted podría calificar para obtener

tarifas reducidas. Llame a la Oficina de Inscripciones para más información al 703-228-4747 o ingrese a www.arlington.us y busque “asistencia financiera.” 8. Los campamentos con matrícula de inscripción insuficiente serán cancelados. El personal de inscripciones le asistirá a buscar programas abiertos similares. 9. Con la seguridad de los chicos como meta, los programas de verano limitarán o cancelarán las actividades al aire libre o, incluso, podrán cancelar los programas en días de “Código Rojo”. La seguridad del campista es el factor decisivo. 10. Las excursiones están sujetas a cambio o cancelación debido a inclemencias climáticas o si no estuviera disponible el transporte adecuado. 11. Iindica un campamento del Condado de Arlington. Use el formulario de inscripción de la página 25 para registrarse sólo para estos campamentos.

Si 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. 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.
