My name is Cale Bruckner, and I’m the Vice President of Concentric Sky. Our company creates apps and websites for companies and people on the move. The internet. Mobile apps. Information at your fingertips. We live in a fast-paced world. Being in Eugene allows us to keep up, but still enjoy a great culture of creativity, innovation and inspiration. It’s the perfect place to call home while serving clients all over the world. To help them create and maintain their presence, we need to be able to move quickly too. That’s why we use the Eugene Airport. In a world that never stops moving, it fits my pace.


From the Executive Director

Recreational Improvement In Recreation, we love improvement. After all, recreating can improve your health, your skills, your social circles – and even your disposition. With that in mind, we’ve made some “improvements” to the Rec Guide. We’ve always noted an age range on the activity descriptions for children and youth, so parents have information about what activities are appropriate for their child. Now, we’ve added age ranges to all activities to give you more information about an activity before you register. We know that many people tend to favor one community center. Perhaps it’s the one in the neighborhood or the one where everybody knows their name. So, another “improvement” we’ve made divides the adult listings by Campbell, Petersen Barn and Amazon Community Centers. This Guide has also changed the location of the listings for water fitness classes. We’ve moved them to Aquatics – right where you’d expect to find them. And, with nearly eight percent of Eugene’s population Latino, we’re reaching out by adding information in the Guide in Spanish. We want everyone to know they are welcome at our facilities and in our programs. As you peruse the fun activities in this Summer Rec Guide that can help you improve, we hope you’ll consider all these changes improvements, too.

Nature deficit disorder & how to cure it This condition occurs when young people spend too much time in front of screens and not enough time outdoors. Aimee Goglia developed the Full Moon Rising program to address the issue. “I wanted to ensure that in addition to learning about technology, young people also spend time in nature,” she says. The Full Moon Rising program is presented to first and second graders during the school day over five weeks. The last day is a daylong field trip that corresponds to the curriculum. When the topic is forest ecology, they go tree climbing. For winter survival, they go to the snow. For the water cycle curriculum, they go swimming or rafting. Recreation Director Craig Smith says FMR exemplifies the division’s motto: “Building bodies and brains while having fun and playing games.” All five senses are used in the learning process, reinforcing the development of new learning.

Following an analysis of several national programs, Aquatics has revamped the expectations and progressions of swim lessons to ensure water safety is the highest priority. Strokes come second to being able to float, bob and tread water.

Disc golf fascination becomes career Walking through Westmoreland Park one day, 10-year-old Andy Rich saw someone playing disc golf for the first time and he was hooked. By the time he was 16, he was the Oregon Disc Golf Champion. Rich is taking his love of this fastest growing sport in the world to another level; he’s the manager of Eugene’s

newest disc golf course in Alton Baker Park. Officially opened on April 1, the 18-hole Alton Baker Disc Golf Course is the first new one in Eugene since the Westmoreland course opened in 1988. Unlike Westmoreland, which is free, there will be a $3 daily fee to play on the Alton Baker Course. Course memberships for $40-$60 will allow open play for a year and offer other benefits. The course was intentionally designed in the underused and overgrown areas of the park, and stresses the safety of other park users. As part of his management contract, Rich has taken over the City’s responsibilities for mowing and maintenance of the course’s 14 acres and he will also pay the City a monthly fee. Having started playing at a young age himself, Rich says he’s seen kids as young as five playing the sport, and definitely encourages youth in middle and high school to play. The Alton Baker Course will also feature a pro shop, a snack bar and food cart. Later this summer, Rich says players will be able to call or go online to reserve tee times. For more information, please go to www.eugenediscgolf.com.

Vet finds there’s lots to like at Campbell The Campbell Community Center is a little calmer than Normandy, France was during the war, but Lloyd Smalling says but that’s what he likes now that he’s a bit older. Lloyd turned 90 in March and spends 3-4 days a week at Campbell Center. He worked in the Army’s main supply depot during WWII. “Campbell Center’s a good place with nice people and there’s always something to do, from playing cards to line dancing; and once a week, musicians come in to play,” he says. He likes to play pool, and volunteers by making the coffee. “I just cannot sit and watch the ‘boob tube’ (television) all day long,” he says. After the war, Lloyd worked in California making 90 cents an hour. When he learned his brother was making $1.37 in Oregon working in a lumber mill, he moved north. Spry for his age, Lloyd also likes to bowl, and averages 151. “My average used to be in the 180s or 190s,” he says, “but it seems that with every year I add on in age, the average goes down.”

Petersen Barn Center PROGRAMS AT

SUMMER 2013

Petersen Barn Community Center officially became a Senior Center in 1998, although the Adult and Senior Program offered activities at the center long before. “The Barn” as it is affectionately known, helps provide greater access to senior programs for older adults living in West Eugene. The center has a great room for large events, and classrooms for smaller group activities. Located in the Bethel District, the center occupies a corner of Petersen Barn Park, which has a playground, sports fields, bike paths, and accessible parking. Events, classes and activities offered by the Senior and Adult Program promote health and wellbeing, strengthen support networks, and assist individuals to remain independent. Petersen Barn is one of three City of Eugene centers that offer activities specifically for seniors. Adult activities in this Recreation Guide are divided by center so it’s easy to see what is offered at the center you frequent most. You may, of course, attend activities at any center. More adult activities are listed throughout this Rec Guide. 870 Berntzen Road, Eugene, OR 97402 541-682-5521 Open M-F 9a-5p Center closed May 27, Jul 4, Sep 2 On the web: www.eugene-or.gov/PetersenBarn Like us on Facebook: www.Facebook.com/PeteBarn

Summer Camps

Finding the Right Camp for Your Child

Matching your child’s personality and interests is an important part of choosing the right camp. Consider the camp’s staff-to-child ratio, level of activity, and the total number of kids to determine which camp environment best suits your child’s personality and temperament. Next, find a camp that interests your child. The topics of some of Recreation’s 100 summer camps are: • Art, dance or make believe • Adventure, fantasy or magic • Sports or creative messes • Adaptive, science or cooking • Swimming, tennis or soccer • Fashion or photography • Skateboarding or rock climbing • Environmental or surfing • Archeology and robotics • Police Activities League • Counselor–in-training, and • Kayaking, sailing or rafting Non-city residents are assessed a 20% surcharge for registered activities & rentals.

Recreation Can Accommodate Special Needs Recreation strives to include every child. If your son or daughter may be uncomfortable, find it hard to follow rules, or be hesitant to participate in most activities, he or she may be more successful with an accommodation. Arrange for an inclusion evaluation at least two weeks prior to the start of camp by asking for an Inclusion Request Form at any community center, or get one online at the URL below. The inclusion coordinator will contact you to make an appointment. For more information about inclusion, go to www.eugene-or.gov/recinclusion.

Camp Details You can register for all camps at www.eugene-or. gov/recenroll or through any City of Eugene community center or pool. For more information about registration, see page 92. Some camps must be paid in full when you register. For all others, you can reserve a space with a $25 deposit. Full payment is due three weeks prior to the camp start date. Withdrawals after June 1 forfeit the deposit. Scholarships and sibling discounts may be available; please ask. A Summer Camp Health Form must be completed and is available at www.eugene-or.gov/reccamps or at the community centers.
