Whale Camp

1905748

Aboard their 65-foot sailboat, campers collect data to document whale distribution, feeding and behavioral patterns. Hands-on experience using onboard marine biology equipment helps unveil the powerful and endangered processes of life in the sea. Campers explore beaches, coastal trails and fishing villages and investigate life in the tidal pools and bogs. Whale Camp takes students out to sea three days each week to directly encounter the whales and other marine life for an amazing marine science experience. Whale Camp is a place where inspiration, exploration and discovery abound.

Summer at Sandy Spring

J

oin us for a summer adventure! Summer at Sandy Spring creates the biggest and best summer experiences for kids of all ages, from 3-year-olds all the way through 12th Grade. We’re ACA-accredited and we’ve been at it for over 20 years. Along the way, we’ve learned a few things: • Kids prefer swimming ponds to video games. • A side portion of academic enrichment helps them keep their minds in shape for September. • They’d rather learn and run and laugh than do almost anything else. We build on that free spirit and creative energy, and that’s why kids love Summer at Sandy Spring. Campers splash and play in our swimming pond, experiment in

art and performances, learn teamwork while rock climbing, and change communities through service projects.

Summer at Sandy Spring is fun for kids and gives parents peace of mind. With our low camper to counselor ratio, kids get the encouragement and attention they deserve. With extended hours and numerous programs, finding a camp experience that suits your needs is easy. All of our programs promote teamwork, friendship, and most importantly, fun in a safe environment. Summer at Sandy Spring takes place on the 140-acre wooded campus of the Sandy Spring Friends School (SSFS), a Pre-Kindergarten through 12th Grade college preparatory day school in the heart of Montgomery County. Using our own buses, we provide daily transportation to and from a variety of DC and Baltimore metro area locations. We also provide the option of before- and aftercamp care starting as early as 7:30 am and extending until 6:00 pm. Our programs are designed to accommodate flexible schedules, create stimulating experiences, and offer tons of fun. With a balance of engaging academic enrichment lessons and exciting, recreational activities, Summer at Sandy Spring gives campers a high-energy summer filled with friendship, learning, and adventure.

Things to consider before choosing a summer Though February does not often elicit images of youngsters building campfires or playing games in the pool, the month more synonymous with the Super Bowl and Valentine’s Day is a great time for parents to start thinking about summer camps for their kids. Summer camp is often something children look forward to, and something they will fondly recall long after they reach adulthood. For many, summer camp provides a first taste of independence, as youngsters spend significant time away from home without their parents for the first time in their lives. But, as great an experience as summer camp can be, it can be just as difficult if parents don’t find the camp that’s the right fit for the child. That’s why it behooves parents to start thinking about summer camps in the winter, before camps fill out their rosters, which tends to happen in early spring. The following are a few things parents should take into consideration when seeking a summer camp for their children.

Staff

The right summer camp staff can make all the difference. Many children are understandably shy when arriving at a summer camp since their friends from home might not be joining them. That can make kids hesitant to participate in activities or less enthusiastic about those activities. A

1905746

camp Ask to see schedules and how strictly camps adhere to those schedules. When considering specialized camps, ask the staff representative if the campers will have the chance to simply have a little fun and which types of recreational activities are planned to give them a break from what are often rigorous schedules.

Camp goals

good staff will know how to make campers feel welcome, which should help them come out of their shells and make the most of their summer camp experiences. The quality of staffs can vary significantly depending on the camp, so it’s important that parents ask camp representatives about their staff members before making any commitments. Ask how long the staff has been together, as well as the type of training new and veteran staff members undergo before the start of the camp season? Does it

include first aid and emergency medical training and certification? It’s also best to ask about the process the camp employs before hiring new staff members, including the extent of background checks. Are criminal background checks conducted? How many references must potential staff members supply to be considered for employment? A good camp will be forthcoming with answers to all of your questions, so eliminate those that appear hesitant to share information about their staff.

A day in the life

Parents should ask what a typical day is like once the season hits full swing. Many parents want their youngsters to have a well-rounded experience; others might want their children to attend a more specialized camp, such as a sports camp focusing on a particular sport or a music camp devoted to helping kids become better musicians. Regardless of the type of camp parents are considering for their children, they should ask about what daily life at the camp is like.

SUMMER ACTIVITIES GUIDE • JANUARY 2014

Another thing parents must consider before choosing a summer camp is the goal of each individual camp. A camp should be dedicated to ensuring the kids have fun, even when they are attending more specialized camps that tend to be more strict. In addition, parents should look for a camp that wants its attendees to foster relationships with their fellow campers. Summer camp can be lonely for some youngsters, especially those attending camp for the first time, but one that strives to promote friendship among its campers can reduce, if not eliminate, any feelings of homesickness. Remember, late winter is when parents should start looking at summer camps for their children, and there are a host of factors moms and dads should take into consideration during the vetting process to ensure their youngsters have as much fun as possible.
