What do you want to do this summer? There’s something for everyone! Performing Arts • Sports • Arts and Crafts • Science • Nature • Gaming • Technology • and Much More!

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.

February 14! Did you know that first day of camp registration is one of the busiest days for online registrations? Make sure you get into the camps you want by preparing before the registration period begins. See page 22 for great registration tips!

Camps for All Abilities Youth with disabilities are welcome to register for any programs of interest. As part of our inclusion philosophy, we have designated Fairlington CC and Madison CC Little Explorers camps; and Ashlawn ES Summerfest as sites that receive additional services. These sites have a lower staff to camper ratio, provide additional training for staff on program modifications, offer positive behavior supports and create connections for individuals with and without disabilities. The Therapeutic Recreation office can help ensure that modifications are in place for your child to have a successful camp experience. Advanced notice for any requests for modifications is welcome. Reasonable modifications could include: adapted equipment and techniques, specialized staff training, sign language interpreters, accessible facilities, additional staff, or large print and Braille materials. We strive to find the best fit for your camper and at times it may be necessary to change a camper’s placement if the support, assistance and modification necessary for participation can best be provided at an alternate site. You can also check our Therapeutic Recreation (TR) Camps on pages 14. Contact the TR Office at [email protected], 703-2284740 for more information. Interested in one of these camps but need support for a disability? Contact the Therapeutic Recreation Office at [email protected]

Qualified Staff Make It Happen! Camp and playground counselors are special people. Department of Parks and Recreation staff 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 school teachers, 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 trainings that focus 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, 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 how to ride a bike, play classic and electronic games or explore the great outdoors, Arlington has something to offer.

Arlington County Camps PAGE 6 CLASSIC CAMPS offer a variety of programming options, both structured and unstructured, that include art, sports, trips and more.

PAGE 6 CAMPS FOR PRESCHOOLERS are a mix of offerings specifically designed for ages 3-5.

PAGE 7 NATURE, ADVENTURE OR HISTORY CAMPS 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.

PAGE 8 COMMUNITY CENTER BASED CAMPS are programs for children ages 5-11, designed to give families lots of flexibility, including an option for students attending summer school!

FitArlington Every camper in the Department of Parks and Recreation 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 opportunities 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 Department of Parks and Recreation 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 wears sneakers that fit properly. Laces or Velcro must be tied and secured for a snug fit 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. Department of Parks and Recreation Staff will consult with a parent when improper footwear is worn.

PAGE 8 CREATIVE ARTS CAMPS 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!

PAGE 11 SPORTS CAMPS 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 ultimate Frisbee or tennis.

PAGE 14 CAMPS FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES are camps specifically designed for individuals with physical, emotional, social or cognitive/ mental challenges. Please note...we can make modifications in any camp for kids with disabilities. Just let us know what camp and what you need.

PAGE 15 IMAGINATION EXPLORATION CAMPS bring kids with special

Volunteer at Parks and Recreation Camps! Join our team of volunteers!

Arlington Loves its Volunteers!

If you are 13 or older, please join a large group of energetic and committed Arlingtonians and have fun while contributing your talents to the community. We need your support to assist staff with general interest, special interest and Therapeutic Recreation camps (volunteers are placed only at camps operated by the Department of Parks and Recreation, not in contracted camps). Volunteers take a leadership role with the support of trained staff in all the fun and exciting activities campers enjoy, including field trips, arts and crafts, swimming, sing-alongs, games and much more! Whether you are seeking a personal or professional development opportunity or simply have a desire to work with young people, volunteering can be extremely rewarding. It is an opportunity to make friends, work with children in a supervised recreational setting and gain valuable experience in a leadership role. In order to be eligible for a paid Student Assistant position in Arlington County camps in the future, you must have been a volunteer for at least one summer. The number of Student Assistant positions is limited, but DPR will not hire anyone who has not been a summer camp volunteer.

Rec on Wheels Our staff comes to your neighborhood park and facilitates fun recreational activities for the whole family with evenings of lively sports, arts & crafts, games and enjoyable events. We bring recreational fun into neighborhoods across the county.

Ready to Apply? Call 703-228-4724 to request an application form or go to parks.arlingtonva.us and click on “volunteer” to download an application online.

Guidelines for great volunteer opportunities: 1.

Volunteers must be at least 13 (by May 1, 2018) and at least two years older than the oldest camper in the program at which they are placed.

2.

Volunteers are not placed where they were campers the previous summer or where their family members are current campers.

3.

Volunteers must work for four weeks (two weeks for Project FIVE camp). New volunteers must work their first two weeks consecutively at the same location. It may be possible to work additional weeks.

4.

Volunteers must work core program hours. Working more than the core hours is determined by the needs of the site. No one may volunteer more than eight hours a day.

Our goal is to place volunteers near their home and in the programs of their choice. However, we can’t guarantee placements.

Summer Programs in the Parks! Drop-in recreation in the parks will run Monday to Thursday and offer occasional Friday events from June 25 through August 17 from 6-8 pm.

Non County Residents Non-resident registration for Arlington County camps begins February 28, 2018. Non-residents pay 15% more than the fees listed in the catalog, including Arlington Public School employees. Residents should register early to ensure spots.

Half Now, Half Later! Households have the option of paying 50% of the camp fee upfront (at the time of registration), followed by the remaining 50% on May 1. Rules apply: Payment option applies to base fees only (not extended hours). Credit card must be provided and kept on file. Remaining 50% payment will be authorized for May 1, 2018. This option is only available until April 15. Declined payments processed on May 1 must be corrected as soon as possible. Failure to complete the remaining 50% payment may be subject to withdrawal from camp (refund will be processed per standard refund rules).

Waitlists 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 be placed on the wait list. Arlington County coordinators use waitlists to make decisions, and the County process many cancellations throughout the summer; therefore, there is a good chance that you can obtain a spot if you are placed on a waitlist early. Please do not call registration to ask the likelihood to obtain a spot; waitlist enrollments depend on the number of enrollees that cancel their spot. Make sure we have your most up to date contact information, including your phone number and email. You can check your place in the waitlist by logging into your account online (registration.arlingtonva.us) and selecting “My Account,” “Print Household Roster,” and Submit. Online registration confirmations can be printed using Adobe Acrobat 6.0 or higher, but enrollment is not confirmed until all paperwork is received.

Late Registrations and Forms All required paperwork must be received no later than 5pm the Monday prior to the camp week or campers may not be allowed to participate and no refunds will be processed. Registrations will be accepted up to the Monday prior to the camp start date, if space is available. For late registrations, all documents must be delivered to the Registration Office, and a Summer Camp Ticket will be provided to the parent. It is the parent’s responsibility to take this Camp Ticket to the first day of camp and give it to camp staff to be admitted to camp.

Campers with Disabilities Parents and guardians can request modifications through the Therapeutic Recreation Office (703-228-4740 and [email protected] us) in advance of the camp 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. There is no additional fee for this service. This additional information is important in order to provide modifications so that every participant will be successful in the chosen program.

Fee Reductions Don’t let fees be a barrier. Arlington County residents may request a fee reduction! All participants must submit fee reduction applications PRIOR to registration, since discounts are NOT RETROACTIVE. Fee reductions are available on a sliding scale based on household income and size. 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, can apply for a reduced fee. To apply, bring proof of identity, proof of Arlington residency and 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. For more information on where and when to process fee reductions, please see page x.

Registration Cancellations, Transfers and Refunds All refunds are subject to a $20 administrative charge per participant, per service interaction. Payment is not based on attendance; it is the responsibility of the guardian to cancel if the camper won’t attend. All registration changes (transfers/cancellations/refunds) are processed by the Registration Office ONLY and not camp or community center staff. Deadline to make any changes to camp registrations is 5pm the Monday prior to the camp start. No refunds will be issued for cancellations requested after that deadline. All changes are finalized only when a receipt is generated by our system. Once a change is made, please read and note your receipt number, since registrants will be held responsible for payment.

Los niños disfrutan y se llenan de emociones positivas a través del deporte; mostrando sus talentos a través de las artes; cosechando los beneficios del voluntariado; vigorizando su imaginación a través del juego creativo; explorando el exterior a través de programas de naturaleza; y montones de aventuras. Al mismo tiempo haciendo amigos y recuerdos de por vida. El verano es el momento perfecto para reunir a personas y cultivar un desarrollo sano que ayuda a los jóvenes crecer confiados, dedicados y responsable!

Nuestro Personal cualificado lo realizan El verano fue diseñado para dar a los niños un descanso de la escuela, ayudar a probar nuevas experiencias y crecer mentalmente, físicamente y socialmente.

CAMPAMENTOS DE ARTES CREATIVAS vienen en todas formas y tamaños, para aquellos que quieran aprender a pintar un cuadro, actuar en una obra, crear una vasija, cantar una canción y más.

Consejeros de campamentos son personas especiales. A personal del Departamento de parques y recreación le debe encanta trabajar con gente joven. Ellos son creativo, entusiasmado, comprometido y sincero... y supremamente paciente y muy divertido. De hecho, muchos de los consejeros de campamento de Arlington han sido campistas, a menudo en los programas que ahora dirigen. Mucho de nuestro personal comprometido son profesores, estudiantes universitarios y graduados universitarios que esperan encontrar una carrera permanente trabajando con niños. Son un grupo talentoso y divertido, cada uno con mucha experiencia en su área de especialidad y todos son comprometidos en ayudar a su hijo para ser el mejor que él o ella puede ser. Para asegurar que sus hijos tengan una experiencia positiva y divertida, el Condado de Arlington invierte muchas horas en capacitación de personal y desarrollo.

Campos de Arlington para todos los niveles Los jóvenes con discapacidades son bienvenidos a inscribirse en cualquier programa de interés. Como parte de nuestra filosofía de inclusión, hemos señalado los campamentos de “Little Explorers en los centros comunitarios Madison y Fairlington. Tambien tenemos el campamento Summerfest en la escuela Discovery.” como sitios que reciben servicios adicionales. Estos sitios tienen una plantilla inferior al cociente de camper, proporcionan capacitación adicional para el personal sobre las modificaciones de programa, ofrecen apoyos de comportamiento positivo y crean conexiones para personas con y sin discapacidad. La oficina de recreación terapéutica puede ayudar a asegurar que las modificaciones están en lugar para que su hijo tenga una exitosa experiencia de campamento. Antelación para cualquier solicitud de modificación es preferible. Modificaciones razonables pueden incluir: adaptado de equipos y técnicas, formación del personal especializado, intérpretes de lengua de signos, instalaciones accesibles, personal adicional, o grandes y materiales Braille. Nos esforzamos por encontrar el mejor ajuste para su camper y a veces puede ser necesario cambiar la colocación de un camper si el apoyo, asistencia y modificaciones necesarias para la participación pueden prestarse mejor en un lugar alternativo.

Para proporcionar oportunidades seguras para la actividad física, es imprescindible que su campista lleve zapatillas que se adapten correctamente, por ejemplo Cordones o Velcro atado y asegurado para un calce a pie. Zapatos sueltos no son ideales para actividades físicas. También se deben usar calcetines. Para su propia seguridad, campistas con calzado inadecuado no podrán participar.

28

Listas de espera Los campamentos del Condado de Arlington son muy populares. Si una apertura no está disponible en el momento del registro, ponte en lista de espera (WL). Cuanto antes te coloques en lista de espera más probable será que consigas el lugar que desees ya que los planes de verano de los participantes cambian y el personal de registros procesa muchas cancelaciones entre el registro en línea y las fechas de inicio de los campamentos. El personal de registro envía correos electrónicos (y realiza llamadas si no hay correo electrónico disponible) a los clientes de la lista de espera todos los días, por lo que deberías revisar tu cuenta y asegurarte de que tu información esté actualizada. Una vez que nos pongamos en contacto contigo, te daremos un aviso de 24 horas para aceptar o rechazar el lugar y, después de la fecha límite, cancelaremos el registro y pasaremos a la siguiente persona en lista de espera. No te comuniques con la Oficina de Registros para consultar acerca de la posibilidad de obtener un lugar.

Registros y formularios tardíos Toda la documentación requerida debe recibirse antes de las 5 pm del lunes anterior a la semana del campamento o los campistas no estarán autorizados a participar y no se procesará ningún reembolso. Luego de este plazo, toda la documentación deberá enviarse a la Oficina de Registros en persona. Una vez que la documentación esté completa, se entregará un paquete de Campamento de Verano a los padres y éste será solicitado por el personal antes de que el participante ingrese al campamento.

Campistas con discapacidades Los padres y tutores pueden solicitar modificaciones a través de la Oficina de Recreación Terapéutica (703-228-4740 & [email protected] arlingtonva.us) antes de la sesión del campamento. Si un niño requiere recordatorios frecuentes para participar, seguir las instrucciones o permanecer con el grupo; requiere asistencia para vestirse, alimentarse o ir al baño; o si tiene dificultad para controlar la ira, por favor indique esto en los formularios de Registro de Emergencia / Información del Participante del Campamento. No hay ningún cargo adicional por este servicio. Esta información adicional es importante a fin de proporcionar modificaciones para que cada participante tenga éxito en el programa elegido.

No residentes del Condado El registro de no residentes en los campamentos del Condado de Arlington comienza el 28 de febrero de 2018. Los no residentes pagan un 15% más que las tarifas enumeradas en el catálogo, incluso los empleados de la Escuela Pública de Arlington.

Reducciones de tarifas ¡No dejes que las tarifas sean una barrera! Los residentes del Condado de Arlington pueden solicitar una reducción de tarifas basada en el ingreso familiar y el tamaño del hogar ANTES del registro, ya que los descuentos NO SON RETROACTIVOS. Para solicitar una reducción de tarifas, el tutor primario debe presentar una solicitud de reducción de tarifas, prueba de identidad, prueba de residencia en Arlington y prueba de ingresos actual (como la carta original de almuerzo gratis /de precio reducido de APS, WIC, SSI, SSDI, TANF, SNAP o formularios de impuestos vigentes, entre otros). Para obtener más información sobre cómo, cuándo y dónde presentar solicitudes de reducción de tarifas, consulta la página 5.

Cancelaciones, Traslados y Reembolsos El pago no se basa en la asistencia; es responsabilidad del padre / tutor cancelar dentro del plazo si el campista no asistirá. Todos los reembolsos están sujetos a un cargo administrativo de $ 20 por participante por interacción con el servicio al cliente (generalmente en un recibo). Todos los cambios de registro (transferencias / cancelaciones /reembolsos) son procesados SOLO por la Oficina de Registros y no por el personal del campamento o del centro comunitario. La fecha límite para realizar cualquier cambio en los registros en los campamentos es las 5 pm del lunes anterior al inicio del campamento. No se emitirá ningún reembolso por cancelaciones solicitadas luego de ese plazo. Todos los cambios finalizan solo cuando nuestro sistema genera un recibo. Cuando se realice un cambio, lee tu recibo para confirmar que refleja tu solicitud, ya que los clientes serán responsables del pago una vez que se procese la cancelación.

Si usted está buscando una oportunidad de desarrollo personal o profesional o simplemente tiene el deseo de trabajar con jóvenes, el voluntariado puede ser muy gratificante. Es una oportunidad para hacer amigos, trabajar con niños en un entorno de recreo supervisado y ganar valiosa experiencia en un rol de liderazgo. Para ser elegible para un estudiante asistente puesto en campos del Condado de Arlington en el futuro, debe haber sido voluntario en al menos un verano. El número de posiciones de asistente de estudiante es limitado, pero DPR no contratar a cualquier persona que no ha sido un campamento de verano voluntario.
