Camp Until a Cure Camp Until a Cure provides children and teens with Type 1 Diabetes, who might not otherwise attend a traditional camp, a camping experience where they are encouraged, educated and supported. The ultimate goal of Camp Until a Cure is better physical and emotional long-term health for each camper. The Diabetes Youth Foundation of Indiana believes that through Camp Until a Cure: A child or teen with diabetes should not be denied any opportunity because of their disease. A child or teen with diabetes should not be held back, but rather challenged to do the things that a child without diabetes can do. Children and teenagers with diabetes benefit from a support system that helps them manage their condition or disease. Children and teenagers create a support network where they encourage and motivate each other to manage the complexities of living with diabetes. Campers develop interpersonal and social skills and are given the opportunity to make new, lifelong friendships. All of our programs should be open and available to any child in need, regardless of their ability to pay. - DYFI Board of Directors

I believe there is an artist in all of us. In establishing Carrie Curran Art Studios, I have created a space and opportunity for anyone who wants to hold a brush and feel the sensation of putting paint on canvas. – Carrie Curran, Artist & Founder

About Carrie & The Studio Carrie Curran Art Studios LLC (CCAS) is owned and operated by Carrie Curran, an accomplished artist whose work is in collections throughout the United States. She is the highly respected former director of the Scottsdale Artists’ School Youth Academy. Family, friends and art are Carrie’s passions. For years, she has dreamed of a space where she could create special events that include all the things she loves: art, yoga, food, jewelry, fashion, collectibles, current events, and providing the opportunity to share enjoyable experiences. The Art Studios’ mission is to provide a learning place for adults and children to tap into their creativity while having fun through art play and art instruction at all skill levels.  As long as an interest in art exists in an individual, Carrie Curran Art Studios provides an avenue for developing that interest. As an artist and mother of three young budding artists, Carrie developed a program in 1996, Fine Art for Children, to offer quality art instruction to her children, their friends, and neighbors. When it became obvious that the program worked and was thoroughly enjoyed by the children, praised by their parents and lauded by fellow artists and art educators, she formalized the program and opened it up to the community. It has become the core of her workshops, popular summer program, school break sessions, and mentoring. With her expertise, Carrie created the successful Scottsdale Artists’ School Youth Academy in 2004, which she directed for the last seven years. She brings this wealth of knowledge, experience and talent to Carrie Curran Arts Studios where her instructors, local artists skilled in art education, utilize teaching techniques developed and supervised by Carrie.

The Mindset and Tactics of a Champion This is one of the most exciting times of the year because the season-ending tournaments are upon us. Every high school athlete is striving to have a peak performance at the regional and state tournaments, while the college guys are looking to turn it up a notch for the Conference and NCAA Championships. I have been attending the NCAA Championships annually since 1982 and the competition is intense. State tournaments are also very exciting! I will be following the success of my summer camp students by attending many different state high school tournaments during February and March and then the Olympic Trials in April.

My most vivid memories from my wrestling career are undoubtedly state, national and Olympic competition. Of course, in order to excel in those events I was wrestling in hundreds of tournaments over two decades. Over 90 percent of what I remember is from the season-ending events. Winning my first State Championship is one of the most intensely satisfying experiences I have ever had on the mats. I was 15 years old, and it was the culmination of a boyhood dream. When I made the Olympic Team I was already an adult. It was definitely very fulfilling, but different from winning my first state championship. I have boxes of memorabilia in my basement, but all I display in my office are the few items with the most significant meaning from the season-ending tournaments. Towards the end of the season I tell the high school athletes that I work with: “What you achieve at the state tournament will become memories of a lifetime.” Over time, no one will remember exactly what your regular season record was. Throughout your life people will ask, “Did you get to state? Did you place? Did you get to NCAA’s? Did you place?” These season-ending tournaments are your chance to shine. Make the most of your opportunities! Do not walk off the mat feeling you held anything back. If you give it your all, you will have no regrets regardless of the outcome. Seize the moment! RISE TO THE OCCASION!

www.CampNavigator.com Vol-1; Issue 3


So how do you “Rise to the Occasion” in your biggest matches? Few athletes perform at the same level in major competition as they do during the season. Unfortunately, many athletes tighten up and hold back. Great champions are able to get the most out of themselves when it counts! Champions perform at their “optimal level of emotional arousal” and do the little things necessary to win the close matches. Below are some simple suggestions, in no particular order, which will help you win your big matches when it counts the most. Intense drilling will help you perform instinctively in the heat of battle. Fight for every point in the practice room. This scrambling instinct will help you in matches. Always think positively, particularly during the weeks and days leading up to major competition. Visualize yourself executing your game plan, winning against your toughest competition, and having your hand raised in the championship venue as your cheering section cheers. Study videotape of some of your best matches. This will help you visualize and think positively. Study video of your toughest potential opponents and picture yourself implementing the game plan you need to defeat these adversaries. Get proper rest and nutrition. Control your weight so that you can focus on your performance. Warm up properly before matches. This helps prepare your body for battle, while helping reduce anxiety. Be intense, yet relaxed, when you step on the mat to do battle! Allow me to elaborate on this key point. Over time, champions learn to develop a routine that allows them to consistently get to their optimal level of mental arousal level prior to matches. This mindset is different for everyone and can change over time. Each athlete is different. Coaches must help athletes identify when they were performing their best and what their mindset was was a little more relaxed. Don’t get me wrong: to be at my best I still had to be intense and focused, but not wound so tight that I did not react quickly or made mistakes. Control the tempo and ties. The late, great Dave Schultz passed on this little pearl of wisdom to me. I specifically asked Dave when visiting his home in 1986, “Dave, you look so poised out there in competition. What are you thinking?” His response was simply, “I am looking to control the tempo of the match and control the ties.” Dave was a master of the 2 on 1 and front headlock (along with about every other hold, for that matter). When Dave controlled a tie, he could score quickly in a variety of fashions depending on how his opponent reacted. Use motion and body fakes to control the tempo and/or close the gap. Never stand around. Use body fakes to put your opponent on the defense so you can get a hold of him to control ties. If you like to shoot from the open, use body fakes to set-up a low ankle single or double. Too many athletes stand around and then dive in. No one has executed the low ankle single as well as John Smith. This is because few athletes have trained and conditioned themselves to create the motion that he had. Precise technique, quick level change, and unorthodox flexibility were undoubtedly some of the keys to John’s success too. One thing many athletes are lacking is the motion he created. I trained with John at every Olympic & World Team Training Camp from 1984-1992. I speak from personal experience. When he was not moving well, I could stop him with a front headlock. When he was moving intensely, he was practically unstoppable. If you want to get more effective with the low single, create more motion and body fakes.

Keep wrestling through the end of every period. It disgusts me to see wrestlers rest at the ends of periods. This is a great time to score, or at very least, work your opponent’s head and wear him down. Never get caught on your heels and scored upon at the end of a period. My athletes often score with the blast double, low single, or snap down during final 15 seconds of period. Strive to finish every period on top, and definitely not on bottom! I wonder how many wrestlers who get ridden out to the end of a period come back to win? Usually it is far less than 50 percent going into the match. Personally, I performed at my best early in high school when I was totally psyched up and attacked my opponent relentlessly. As I matured and faced better competition on national level, I found that I could perform better when I Never relax on the edge. Too many athletes get knocked on their butt on the edge and give up quick points. This is a critical error. I encourage my athletes to wrestle in the center and to know where the edge is. You are much better off if you can see the edge as opposed to having your back to it and being vulnerable. Wrestlers should circle in immediately when pushed near the edge. Stay focused no matter what happens. Too many athletes get visibly frustrated if they make a mistake or get a bad call. Do not do this! Get right back in there and keep plugging away to score and win. Believe in yourself no matter what happens. You must believe you can win when you step on the mat as well as when you fall behind. Never doubt yourself. Remember McIlravy’s comeback victory in the NCAA Finals his freshman year. Be tough when you are tired! I tell my athletes this often. We can talk technique and tactics, but when it comes down to it, you must execute your technique and tactics during the final moments and seconds of close matches if you are going to reach your highest goals. Learning and understanding the game will only benefit you if you have pushed yourself to higher mental and physical thresholds daily throughout the season. Once your season is over, assess what you need to do to improve. Make and follow a training plan that will allow you to live your dreams.

Our History ~ Children’s Oncology Camping Association – International was founded in 1982 by a handful of the first camps to host pediatric cancer camps. These individuals from the twelve founding camps found that the lives of the children attending camp were immeasurably enhanced by the experience. Noting the similarities in their experiences, they felt a forum should be created to share their ideas and experiences. That forum became known as C.O.C.A. The legal name was changed to COCA-I to reflect the international membership.

The Vision ~ To be the leader in serving camps for children with cancer and their families.

The Mission of Children’s Oncology Camping Association ~ To strengthen the international community of camps for children with cancer and their families through networking, advocacy, education and other resources.

About our membership ~ The membership of Children’s Oncology Camping Association – International currently consists of over 90 member camps from within the United States, Canada, and Ireland. Participants within the member camps include medical professionals (doctors, nurses, psychologists, and social workers), directors and staff who operate the camps, and those that volunteer at them. The conference draws more than 200 participants annually.

C.O.C.A.I. Impacts children battling cancer ~ While Children’s Oncology Camping Association – International exists to provide a forum for those in the pediatric oncology to network and support one another, our primary focus and the common thread we share is working with children that have cancer. Our member camps touch the lives of more than 12,000 lives annually.

How we are governed ~ An 18 member volunteer board of directors that is elected by the voting delegates representing each member camp governs COCA-I. Elected members serve a two-year term. The organization relies upon volunteers for its operation and management.

Children’s Oncology Camping Association – International is a 501(C) 3 non-profit corporation. Our operating costs are covered by membership dues and the annual conference is sustained via registration fees and corporate and foundation sponsorships. Past sponsors include AFLAC, Sanofi and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Additional revenues for the organization are generated through strategic partnerships.

Camp One of the best times in a child’s life is summer time. Each summer, we strive to create the best summer ever for our campers with an exciting line-up of fun! Count on making lots of new friends, going on weekly field trips, and exploring creative arts, science and many other subjects. Swimming, sports and weekly field trips to places such as museums, aquariums and amusement parks fill the Delphi Summer with additional adventure.

“I am thrilled with how much my son did at Delphi’s summer camp! Not only did he work on reading skills but he was able to go on trips every week.  He especially liked the Aquarium of the Pacific and the California Science Center.”

- Parent

Young campers aged 4 - 11 come from around the Westside and even from abroad to spend up to nine weeks of their summer days at Delphi. During morning study hours, campers get personalized attention from experienced and caring teachers. Camp is a great place for children to sharpen skills, advance in existing studies or explore new interests. Young students will also take advantage of our early reading program. In fact, many of our new campers will learn to read for the very first time! In just one summer, a camper can conquer a subject they’ve been having difficulty with, explore new subjects of interest, or improve study skills with one of our special courses in how to study effectively. Campers coming from overseas have plenty of opportunity to practice their English skills, too. Age-appropriate excursions and special events throughout the summer ensure that everyone has a great time, gains confidence in new areas and has plenty of opportunity for personal growth. Campers are often so busy enjoying their new friends, going to the beach, swimming, creating works of art, or performing that they may not realize how much they actually learn in just two months! - Delphi Academy of Santa Monica

Choosing the Ultimate Summer Camp Experience for Your Young Child Kanakuk Kamps the best summer camp for young children Finding the ultimate summer camp experience is not an easy task. Finding the ultimate summer camp experience for your young child can be even more challenging. Young children pose many challenges for camps. From shorter attention spans, wide ranging interests and a close attachment to parents, facilitating an engaging camp environment must be met with a clear strategy. When choosing the best summer camp for their young children, parents will inevitably think of countless factors – from location, to camp term length to scheduled activities. And, undoubtedly, each of these factors should be carefully weighed before a final decision is made. While every parent will have a unique set of issues to consider, there are a few guiding principles that can help lead one to the most enjoyable summer camp for younger

www.CampNavigator.com Vol-1; Issue 3

28


1. Look for variations in camp terms. The length of a camp term can largely influence how much your child enjoys camp. Notably, all children are different, and have varying social skills and attachment levels to their parents and friends, so finding a camp that offers options on camp terms is ideal. When doing your research, try to find camps that offer a short term, such as 14 days, and a long term, such as a month. This option allows your child flexibility; he/she can go for a shorter period for a test run on the full summer camp experience. Then, if he/she enjoys the camp, there is always the option of sticking with the short term or choosing the long term.

2. Choose safety. Your child’s safety is your number one priority, and you should select a camp that not only claims this same priority as their own, but that demonstrates it in the way they manage their camp programming. From health centers and staff that are trained in first-aid techniques to camper safety regulations, make it your mission to really explore the way camps emphasize safety in their day-to-day and managerial activities.

3. Search for diverse camp programming. A summer camp can serve many purposes for young children – from helping them to stay active to developing social skills that will last well past their camp years. When choosing a summer camp experience for your child, select a camp whose activities reflect each of these purposes. From parties and lake adventures to survival skills, quiet time and sport coaching, the ultimate camp experience should enhance your child physically, socially and mentally. By following these guidelines, you can help narrow your camp selection down to a few that truly provide a well-rounded experience for your child. From meeting new friends to discovering more about personal strengths and interests, the ultimate summer camp experience is truly one that will last a lifetime.
