hat memories surface when you hear the words “summer camp”? I think of refreshing lake swims, toasty campfires and peaceful canoe excursions. But there are also unique camp experiences that take center stage in my memory: a surprisingly informative student leadership seminar, a 4H project that went horribly wrong, an outdoor toga party I was almost too nervous to attend, and a thrilling climb to the top of an old bell tower with a cute boy named John that almost led to my first kiss — until I chickened out and ran down the stairs claiming we would be late for dinner. Day and overnight camps offer a convenient source of entertainment — and education — for your child while you work during the summer months. They often lead to unforgettable experiences that will live in your child’s memory forever, too. In this issue, explore an impressive variety of nearby camp opportunities available to your child this summer. Discover five uncommon overnight camps your child can experience within or just outside of North Carolina on page 35. For example, instead of bunking in a cabin, your child can sail on a research vessel in the Atlantic Ocean, or analyze trace evidence in a forensic lab as part of a crime scene investigation. If performing with an orchestra is a better fit for your child than toasting marshmallows over a campfire, turn to page 31 to read about the benefits of arts-based camps. From music and art

his school’s BackPack Buddies Program during spring break, he organized a weekend food drive. With the generous help of a grocer, restaurant and individuals in his community, William collected more than 1,400 pounds of food and $305 in cash donations.

“The money went to buy new backpacks and other things

needed for the children in the BackPack Buddies Program,” he says. “I couldn’t have done it without local businesses supporting me and all of the donations from my community.”

William is spearheading another food drive this spring for Inter-

He recently won a $50 Kohl’s gift card from the Kohl’s Cares Scholarship Program, which rewards young volunteers across the country for contributions to their communities.

3. Cut 12 pieces of fishing line to about 12 inches in length and attach a heart shape to the end of each piece.

4. Tie each tiny heart string, equally spaced, around the hoop circle, hanging each at about the same length. Don’t worry if the hearts hang unevenly since that is part of this project’s charm. You can also add more hearts if you desire, either on separate lines, or by attaching multiple hearts down each piece of fishing line.

5. Cut a 5-inch heart from craft foam. Glue a photo to the front (and back, if desired). Attach this to center of the pipe cleaners where they cross the hoop circle and allow it to hang down further than the tiny hearts on the outside of the circle.

6. Tie two long lengths of ribbon, lace or tulle to opposite sides of the embroidery hoop to create a hanger for your chandelier.

This project can work for a variety of ages and also be adapted for a larger family by adding multiple photo hearts tied to the pipe cleaners. — Renee Canada

First Crushes

W

hen cupid’s arrow strikes, it can be exciting, says Carolyn AlRoy, a psychologist in New York City. For young children

who are just learning how to navigate social interactions, crushes can also be intense, puzzling and disappointing. Early crushes start sooner than parents think — sometimes in preschool — and experts say they can lay the groundwork for a child’s future romantic relationships. Here are some age-appropriate tactics to help parents turn crushes into lessons about life and love.

❤ AGES 2-5

Fast Focus

Does your child spend every waking minute talking about a favorite friend or teacher? You’re in the crush zone. A child’s first “crush” may take the form of an intense interest in a new friend, preschool teacher or other nonfamily adult. It’s normal for a young child to fixate on someone he likes, even declare that he wants to marry his friend or teacher. Use these statements as bridges to discussions about concepts like marriage, friendship and love. “Remember, children this age are still learning how to interact in social situations,” says Jenell Kelly, a family and human development specialist at N.C. Agricultural and Technical State University in Greensboro. Give your child simple instructions for expressing and receiving affection, being a good friend and respecting others’ personal space to help them navigate strong feelings and budding friendships.

Malia Jacobson is a nationally published health journalist and mom of three.

Sticks and Stones

It’s normal for gradeschoolers to develop crushes as they become more social and interact with a wider circle of friends and peers. Often, though, crushes appear as anything but affectionate. Kids may show interest by targeting their crush with negative attention, from name-calling to schoolyard chasing. And most have no idea how to deflect unwanted attention from a peer with a crush on them. It’s all part of learning about boundaries and group dynamics, Kelly says. “Getting along with peers — those they are interested in and those they may not be interested in — is an important component of normative development.” But kids should understand that healthy relationships don’t involve rough physical interactions, name-calling or other negative attention. Parents can help children interact positively with others by adopting a zero-tolerance-for-bullying policy at home and using games and role-play to help children identify ways to express their interest in a positive way, like offering a compliment or striking up a conversation about music.

While some may go on first “dates” — like chaperoned trips to the mall or movies — around age 13, others may not date at all as teens. “Chronological age is not always the best way to determine when teens are ready to date,” she says. A child’s social and emotional maturity and a family’s value system should factor in as well. If “real” dates are still a few years off, try group dates, movie nights at home or parentchaperoned outings. Before dating begins, start talking with teens about boundaries relating to responsibility, accountability, communication, curfews and what to do if your teen feels uncomfortable on a date. “And before your teen dates, take him or her on a date!” AlRoy suggests. Use the time to talk about healthy dating and appropriate behavior, and brainstorm fun date activities.

Stay tuned for a feature story on teen dating next month in our March issue.

less supervised places to socialize. A recent report from the Pew Internet and American Life Project found that even though most teens feel obligated to maintain a presence on Facebook, many expressed “waning enthusiasm.” Their reasons? The site has been “colonized” by adults and there’s too much drama.

“Teens are looking for a place they can call their own,” says Danah Boyd, a fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University. “Rather than all flocking en masse to a different site, they’re fragmenting across apps.” Since teens use a variety of social media apps, supervision becomes more difficult. The classic advice — “keep the computer in a public space” — is hopelessly quaint, especially for teens who socialize on smartphones. One response is to use monitoring software that will alert parents anytime a child sends or receives an inappropriate message. Although surveillance may be a good short-term fix for some kids, it can obscure a long-term goal: raising kids who use good judgment about social media. These kids resist the tempcontinued on page 22

the impact of social media by giving kids positive attention, supporting healthy offline friendships and pointing out popularity’s limited shelf life.

continued from page 21

Limit social networking for middle school students. Pre-adolescents are learning how to manage relationships and the process isn’t always pretty. Middle school kids are very aware of themselves and not very aware of others. Even the nicest kids say mean things — and are devastated if someone says something mean to them. Being part of social media compounds the damage since clumsy comments, ill-advised fashion choices and failed attempts at humor are permanent and more widely available.

n

Teach self-protection strategies. Talk to your child about how to respond to crude comments. If possible, ignore bad behavior. Don’t respond in kind because that is likely to escalate the problem. Whenever possible, use humor to defuse conflict. Take advantage of privacy settings to block people who are negative. If a post is threatening, share it with a trusted adult.

n

Be sure your child knows you have his back. Many teens don’t talk to their parents about social media problems for fear that parents will overreact. Let your children know you have confidence in them to handle most situations, but you want to know about any online interactions that feel scary or overwhelming. If a child comes to you with an online problem, resist the urge to take charge. Instead, help your child think through how to handle the situation.

Check the apps on your child’s phone. Review the apps on your child’s phone every time you pay the phone bill.

M

any parents wonder when a child is ready for his or her first sleepover. Some children begin to ask for a sleepover

with a good friend at a young age, while others prefer to stay in the comfort of their own home at night until they are older and more confident. Then, of course, there are those who fall somewhere in between — and want both!

While every child is unique, we can offer some guidelines to help you think about your child’s overall emotional readiness for a night away from home, taking into consideration your child’s comfort with being and functioning on her own (especially at nighttime), as well as your own comfort with the hosting child’s parent(s). Nighttime — bedtime in particular — can be a revealing time of day when it comes to understanding your child’s emotional development. Some children may become especially clingy or even resistant to going to bed, while others strive to be independent by taking responsibility for self-care tasks (brushing teeth and changing into pajamas, for example) and willingly climbing into bed when they feel tired. Understanding your


child’s need for your presence and support around this time of day can be helpful when you must decide whether to allow your child to spend a night away from home.

Considerations on Your Child’s Behalf Does your child rely on certain bedtime routines with you, such as stories or a special tucking-in procedure? n Are there occasions during which your child needs significant support when he goes to bed? n Does your child ever awaken with anxiety or nightmares and require comfort from you? n How well does your child adjust to different beds and routines when your family travels? n How important is sameness and routine for your child? n Does your child have special objects (such as a blanket or stuffed animal) that provide comfort and could be taken along? n Does your child generally accept babysitters easily? n Does your child separate comfortably from you at school or for an afternoon play date? n Are there any recent or upcoming challenges your child recently faced that could be on his mind and therefore affect his overall capacities? n

Considerations for Those Who Will Be Caring for Your Child How well does your child know her friend’s parents and siblings? n Do your child and his friend generally get along well together? n Does your child feel at home in the physical space? n Is your child comfortable with all members of the family? n Will the friend’s parents be able to provide caring support? n Do you feel comfortable enough with the friend’s parents that you can explain your child’s needs and preferences to them? n

As you think about these questions with your child in mind, consider how likely it is that your child will be able to successfully embark on an overnight adventure. True success entails that he not only make it through the night, but make it in a way that feels comfortable and enjoyable. Do you feel mostly positive that it will go well, or is there enough uncertainty that causes you to wonder? Keep in mind that children build healthy self-esteem from positive experiences that provide them with feelings of competence. When your child is ready, he, too, will benefit from these and other opportunities to spread his wings and experience new levels of independence and autonomy. The Lucy Daniels Center is a nonprofit agency in Cary that promotes the emotional health and well-being of children and families.

Birth Control Pills and Glaucoma Risk Women who used birth control pills for three years or longer had twice the risk of developing glaucoma, according to data from a U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention survey. Researchers screened data from more than 3,400 women ages 40 and older to tabulate the risk of developing glaucoma, a leading cause of blindness affecting 60 million people worldwide. While its progress may be slowed by treatment, there is no cure. Researchers stress that the risk of women developing glaucoma after age 40 represents less than 4 percent. However, women who have been using birth control for a long time may wish to be screened. Dr. Shan Lin, a professor of clinical ophthalmology and the director of the glaucoma service at the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine, presented his findings at a meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology in New Orleans in November 2013.

TVs and Injuries to Children More than 17,000 children are treated in U.S. emergency departments each year for a TV-related injury, equivalent to one child every 30 minutes. A study conducted from 1990-2011 that appeared in the August issue of Pediatrics showed that injuries caused by falling TVs accounted for 12,300 injuries among children under age 18 in 2011 — a 125 percent increase from the number of injuries in 1990. n 46 percent occurred from a TV falling off a dresser or armoire. n 31 percent were caused by a TV falling from an entertainment center or TV stand. n 64.3 percent of all injured patients were children under age 5. n 60.8 percent of cases were among boys. n 63.3 percent of injuries were to the head and neck. n 21.5 percent of injuries were to the legs. The authors concluded that safety anchors or anti-tip devices should be provided with every television at the time of purchase. Manufacturers should redesign TVs to improve stability and parents should be advised not to put remote controls or toys on top of a TV, which can result in a tip-over if a child tries to climb and reach them.

Katherine Kopp is a freelance writer and editor in Chapel Hill. She and her husband are the parents of three daughters.

Outbreaks of whooping cough, or pertussis, have occurred across the U.S. in recent years, especially where clusters of children have not been vaccinated against the disease. Whooping cough starts like a common cold, with a runny nose or congestion, sneezing and a mild cough or fever. After one to two weeks, severe coughing can begin and continue for weeks as a series of coughing fits. Whooping cough can cause violent and rapid coughing until the air is gone from the lungs and one inhales with a “whooping sound.” In babies, the cough can be minimal or nonexistent. They may instead have lifethreatening pauses in breathing, or apnea. The recommended whooping cough vaccine for children is called DTaP, which protects children against diphtheria, tetanus and whooping cough. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now recommends one dose of DTaP for pregnant women between their 27th and 36th weeks. For best protection against whooping cough, children need five doses of DTaP — one at each of the following ages: n 2 months n 4 months n 6 months n 15-18 months n

NEW STUDIES SHOW THE BENEFITS OF ARTS-BASED CAMPS By Carol McGarrahan

I

s your child more of a Picasso than Archimedes or Usain Bolt? Maybe you’ve heard about the cognitive and social benefits arts-based camps offer and you’d like your

child to experience them. Whether you’re raising an artist, mathematician or athlete, an arts-based camp may be just what your child needs to balance out, or further enrich, his developing brain.

Plentiful arts-based camp options abound in North Carolina. Your student can train

with musical masters at UNC-Greensboro and University of North Carolina School of the Arts in Winston-Salem, or participate in summer acting programs at the North Carolina Theatre Conservatory in Raleigh, Children’s Theatre of Charlotte or East Carolina University in Greenville. If your child likes to dance, internationally acclaimed instructors offer summer programs as part of the American Dance Festival in Durham.

Whether you’re enriching an already-artistic-child’s journey or just making an intro-

duction, North Carolina claims a variety of exceptional programs to choose from. Deciding which dream to chase may be the toughest decision your young artist has to make.

More Than Music Music’s benefits have long been obvious to parents who have crooned soft melodies to soothe agitated babies and later observed the positive effects of an arts education on their growing children. Now, recent studies document the benefits of music on a child’s cognitive and social development, particularly when

experienced at a young age and over a long period of time. Research presented at the 2013 meeting of the Society for Neuroscience reported positive changes to the brain and sensorimotor capabilities of subjects who participate in musical training. Lead author Julie Roy of the University of Montreal presented research suggesting

that musical training improves the nervous system’s ability to integrate information from all senses into an understandable whole. Dr. Gottfried Schlaug, M.D., Ph.D, of Harvard Medical School and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, says music stimulates reward systems in the brain. An expert on music, neuroimaging and brain plasticity, Schlaug wrote the following in a conference statement from the 2013 meeting of the Society for Neuroscience: “Playing a musical instrument is a multisensory and motor experience that creates emotions and motions — from finger tapping to dancing — and engages pleasure and reward systems in the brain. It has the potential to change brain function and structure when done over a long period of time.” Another study presented by Yunxin Wang of the State Key Laboratory of Cognitive Neuroscience and Learning at Beijing Normal University in China, suggests that musical training at an early age continued on page 32 carolinaparent.com | | FEBRUARY FEBRUARY 2014 2014 carolinaparent.com

yields positive affects on brain development. Wang and colleagues investigated the effects of musical training on the brain’s structure in 48 Han Chinese adults between the ages of 19 and 21 who had formal musical training for at least one year between the ages of 3 and 15. Researchers found that the volume of brain regions related to hearing and self-awareness were larger in those adults who began taking music lessons before age 7. The advantages of music education on cognitive function have been well documented by previous studies as well. These studies show that children who have experienced musical education often score higher on IQ and standardized tests. A study published in 2007 by Christopher Johnson, professor of music education and music therapy at the University of Kansas, showed that students in elementary schools with high-quality music education programs scored approximately 22 percent higher in English and 20 percent higher in math scores on standardized tests, compared to students attending schools with low-quality music programs, regardless of socioeconomic disparities between the schools. Shirley Brice Heath, a Margery Bailey Professor of English and Dramatic Literature, Emeritus; and Professor of Linguistics and Anthropology at Stanford University, discovered that young people who participate in the arts for at least three hours, three days each week for one full year are: n

Four times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement.

n

Four times more likely to participate in a math and science fair.

n

Three times more likely to win an award for school attendance.

n

Four times more likely to win an award for writing an essay or poem.

CA MP SE CT I O N Social Perks The California Alliance for Arts Education recently asserted that arts education helps students become globally competitive by developing their ability to innovate, communicate and collaborate. Lauren Richardson of Raleigh has witnessed the academic benefits of music and arts on her four children, but values the social benefits most. Her son, a participant in the North Carolina Conservatory for the Performing Arts’ Summer Theater Arts School, recently scored his first paid professional gig with a role in Frosty the Snowman by Broadway Series South in Raleigh. Richardson says she saw dramatic improvement in his maturity thanks to this experience. “It was a complete turnaround as far as his focus and maturity this year in school after doing (Summer Theater Arts School at the conservatory),” she says. Her three daughters have also benefited from studies in music and arts. Her oldest daughter is a successful playwright in New York City and her 18-year-old daughter studies musical theater at American University. Richardson’s youngest daughter transformed from a reticent 4-year-old to a confident, young woman, in large part because of her experiences at the conservatory. “She experienced tremendous growth in just one week of improv,” Richardson says. The conservatory directors have a Broadway background, which creates a high level of professionalism and authentic theater experiences. “The kids learn a lot about working together with other people and what it takes to collaborate on a project,” Richardson says. “They are doing very grown-up work.” Ray Walker, artistic director for the conservatory who made his Broadway debut as “Marius” in the hit musical Les Miserables and who played “Annas” in Jesus Christ Superstar and “Doody” in Grease!, says the conservatory originated as an offshoot from the popular summer theater camp run by North Carolina Theatre in the 1980s. One current conservatory student, 12-year-old Reed Shannon, who has been with the conservatory since age 4, recently booked a national tour starring as a young Michael Jackson in Motown. “What we are trying to do (at the conservatory), our goal, is to create working actors, dancers and performers who can get jobs and have viable careers, and we have had some success with that,” he says. The popularity of arts-based camps indicates that children are gravitating toward what they inherently know is good for them. A 2005 Harris Poll revealed that 93 percent of Americans consider the arts to be vital to providing a well-rounded education and a critical link to learning and success. When it comes to shaping young minds, arts-based camps have become an essential piece of the puzzle.

ARTS-BASED CAMPS ACROSS NC

Research shows that arts-based education can wire the brain for creativity in ways we are only beginning to understand, and programs across North Carolina can help students explore the arts. Here are some to consider.

Kumbaya Nearby Camps Offer Unique Overnight Experiences

adventure than sing around a campfire or play Capture the Flag. Several unique camps in the Carolinas and Virginia offer overnight experiences unlike any other. Consider these camp experiences, which mix fun with out-of-the-ordinary learning.

Shadow Hill’s Summer Camp for Kids and Their Dogs shadowhillshelties.com Jackson Springs, N.C.

Kids can bring their best furry friends to camp with them at Shadow Hill Farm’s summer camp, which covers 134 acres in Jackson Springs. Jane Hammett-Bright, who has decades of experience raising and showing Shelties, works with kids and their dogs on everything from agility courses to grooming. “Parents are floored that their child and the dog learned all that they did,” she says. All dogs are welcome as long as they are kid- and dog-friendly. Dog-and-child pairs stay together in a large building that Hammett-Bright recently constructed using the proceeds from winning the “Fan Favorite” award on the television show, Survivor: Nicaragua. Campers get up early to work with dogs on agility courses, and Hammett-Bright also takes them swimming and camping in the Uwharrie Mountains. She shares her Survivor experience by teaching campers how to build fires and constructing

Survivor-inspired games. All meals are homemade and if the timing is right, campers may get to see a litter of newborn puppies. Appalachian State University Forensic Science Camp conferences-camps.appstate.edu/ youth-camps Boone, N.C.

Forget campfires and s’mores. At Appalachian State University’s forensic science camp, campers may spend an evening detonating explosives or making a DNA necklace. Designed for high school students, the camp offers a real-life look at what happens to evidence after it’s collected from a crime scene. Students learn from forensic professionals representing all areas of law enforcement, which could include bomb squads or digital evidence examiners. Crime scene investigation comes to life in the lab where students can investigate a suspicious arson, detect and classify fingerprints, analyze trace evidence and more. The university opens up its high-tech equipment for campers, allowing them to use scanning electron

• Wilmington, N.C.

Summer camp hits the water at RV Sea Lab, where campers spend up to five days sailing a research vessel up and down the Intercoastal Waterway. Students have likened the trip to experiencing what they’ve seen on the Discovery Channel. “The kids get an adventure,” says Matt Perkins, owner, founder and captain of RV Sea Lab. “We are overseeing them, but they live on the boat and crew it.” Perkins packs in plenty of adventure, including surfing, exploring islands only accessible by boat and using an overboard camera to inventory ocean species. The camp is heavy on science that will benefit students interested in studying chemistry continued on page 36 carolinaparent.com | | FEBRUARY FEBRUARY 2014 2014 carolinaparent.com

and oceanography, but Perkins says many students come on board for the thrill and freedom of the trip. “It’s sort of like a literary experience, like they’re Tom Sawyer,” he says. Popular stops include Beaufort and Shackleford Banks, where campers likely will encounter wild ponies.

• Clover, Va.

No driver’s license is needed at Camp Motorsport, where kids ages 9-16 can spend a week driving dirt karts, half-scale stock cars and racing go-karts. Campers get behind the wheel at least twice every day, taking a vehicle off-road or around a paved track. Drivers of all levels are welcome, from newbies to kids considering a motorsports career. Teenagers who are closer to legal driving age can receive extra training in defensive driving and skills needed to get a learner’s permit or license. The Go-Kart Racing Challenge offers a week of competitive go-kart racing. Between driving sessions, campers stay busy with paintball and daily swims. They return home with more than just improved driving skills — the camp’s activities teach kids math, science, technology and engineering skills related to motorsports. Camp Woodie wildlifeedcenter.org/camp-woodie

• Pinewood, S.C.

An evening at Camp Woodie could involve anything from tug-of-war over a tractor tire to navigating a night sky. The weeklong camp, established in 1995 and overseen by the S.C. Waterfowl Association, mixes fun and games with hands-on education about wildlife, hunting and the outdoors. “(We teach kids) about how beautiful it is to step outside in God’s creation and to love, respect and use natural resources wisely,” says Ed Paul, Camp Woodie’s director. Campers learn how to practice hunting safety with firearms and figure out where the best fishing is. Outdoor survival classes teach campers how to build a fire, navigate by the stars and more. “They learn just how small we are when we step outside, but also how large of a role we can have in keeping the outdoors a place for the next generation,” Paul says. While specialty overnight camps can cost up to $1,200 for five days, the experience is often life-changing. Kids who build on the skills they learn at camp can earn everything from college scholarships to counselor jobs when they are older — a worthy investment in their fun and future. Marty Minchin is a freelance writer based in Charlotte. She has two elementary school-age children.
