Camp Guide 2012

Online Registration Begins February 1, 6 PM


Welcome to the Camp Guide 2012 Start planning now because summer will be here before you know it. As parents, my wife Jaki and I face the same challenges many of you face – how do we keep our daughters active and safe once school gets out for the summer. The Department of Recreation & Parks’ Summer Camp Guide is one of the first places we turn. They always do an outstanding job of creating a wide variety of summer activities and camp offerings to make summer fun for kids of all ages. Why not gather the family together one evening soon and talk with your kids about your summer plans? Once you’ve decided what works for your family, check out page 3 for information on how and when you can register. Finally, a quick reminder -- if you haven’t done it yet, please take a few moments and sign up for NotifyMeHoward, a free service that delivers emergency alerts and other information directly to your inbox or mobile device to keep you connected, informed and better prepared. Receive severe weather warnings, public safety notifications and information on topics including Recreation & Parks’ program, special events and volunteer opportunities. Go to www.NotifyMeHoward.org today and select the types of alerts you and your family would like to receive. Have a wonderful, safe summer!

Ken Ulman Howard County Executive

Although there’s a chill in the air and long summer days seem far ahead, it’s not too early to plan the perfect mix of activities to make your child’s summer a memorable one. With the convenient Camp Planner (inside back cover) and tips on ways to search our camps database (center of this Guide), you’ll be able to easily choose from over 100 camps and coordinate your family’s summer schedule. On May 5, stop by the free Camp Fair at Centennial Park from 10 a.m. to noon, for more information about camps, as well as games, entertainment and a chance to win prizes. Thank you for choosing accredited Recreation and Parks camps. Enjoy your summer!

Concussion Information What is a concussion? A concussion is a type of brain injury that changes the way the brain normally works. A concussion is caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head. Concussions can also occur from a blow to the body that causes the head and brain to move rapidly back and forth. Even what seems to be a mild blow to the head can be serious. What are some warning signs of a concussion? — For Immediate Attention Call 911 Signs Observed by a Parent/Guardian • Appears dazed or stunned • Is confused about assignment or position • Forgets sports plays • Is unsure of game, score, or opponent • Moves clumsily • Answers questions slowly • Loses consciousness (even briefly) • Shows behavior or personality changes • Can’t recall events prior to hit or fall • Can’t recall events after hit or fall

Signs Reported by the Athlete • Headache or “pressure” in the head • Nausea or vomiting • Balance problems or dizziness • Double or blurry vision • Sensitivity to light • Sensitivity to noise • Feeling sluggish, hazy, or groggy • Concentration or memory problems • Confusion • Does not "feel right"

What should you do if you think a concussion has occurred? 1. S  eek medical attention right away. A health care professional will be able to decide how serious the concussion is and when it is safe to return to play. 2. K  eep your child out of play until medically cleared. Concussions take time to heal. Don’t let your child return to play until a health care professional says it’s ok. Children who return to play too soon, while the brain is still healing, risk a greater chance of having a second concussion. Second or later concussions can be very serious. They can cause permanent brain damage, affecting your child for a lifetime. 3. I nform all coaches about any recent concussions. Coaches should know if your child has had a recent concussion. Your child’s coach may not know about a concussion your child received in another sport or activity unless you tell them. 4. H  elp your child return to sports safely after a concussion. As your child’s symptoms decrease, the extra help or support can be removed gradually. Children and teens who return to activities after a concussion may need to • Take rest breaks as needed, • Spend fewer hours at activities and • If in doubt, sit it out! 4

General Information Program information provided in this Guide is tentative. Consult www.howardcountymd.gov/rap for the most up-to-date information.

Registration For information, please see the "How to Register" and "Early Bird" section on page 3.

Participation Only individuals who are registered may participate. Where age or grade restrictions apply, “age” usually refers to the age of the participant at the start of the program and “grade” to current grade. If any other standards apply, they will be noted in the Guide. We reserve the right to question grade or age and may request a birth certificate or other proof of eligibility. For many programs, registrants or parents/legal guardians of minor registrants will be required to provide a signed Participant Information form at the first meeting. The purpose of this form is to ensure that participants willingly share responsibility for their own safety. All activities contain certain inherent risks that each participant assumes. Due to the strenuous nature of some activities, each participant is urged to consult his or her physician concerning his or her fitness to participate. Please note that many programs will require confirmation that immunizations are current. A parent or legal guardian must accompany a child each day for both check-in and pick-up. It is your responsibility to sign your child in at the beginning of the program and sign your child out immediately following the program. Staff are not responsible for your child before or after scheduled activities. A fee may be assessed if your child is not picked up at the close of the program. Children must remain with the program for the full period scheduled. To leave before a day’s program is complete, a child must have written parental consent or the parent/legal guardian must pick the child up after notifying the program director. No refunds will be issued for time missed for this or from dismissals resulting from disciplinary action. In determining whether child is ready to participate in these activities, please be aware that our staff does not change diapers.

Filled Programs Space is limited in most activities — early registration is advised. If a program is filled when we receive your registration, we will contact you; you may then cancel your application at no charge, select an alternate program or place your name on a waiting list. There is no fee to be placed on a waiting list.
