Golf Fairfax – The Cure for Cabin Fever In the four months since I joined the Fairfax County Park Authority to oversee its seven golf courses, I continue to be impressed with the diversity of locations and the challenges they bring. Each picturesque course is unique and has something different to offer everyone from the beginning golfer to the seasoned professional, and there is nothing like a day of playing golf with friends to take your mind off the stresses of the day!

Over the past year, golf has seen its greatest surge in interest since 1997, when Tiger Woods became a professional sensation. People who had not played in years returned to the game in the wake of the COVID-19 lockdown, and plenty of new players took up golf in Fairfax County because it was one of the activities people could enjoy and feel safe doing in the midst of the pandemic. The game is played outdoors, it is a no-contact sport, and people who are new to golf quickly realized how much fun it is. Golf is more about having fun with friends, challenging yourself and encouraging each other than it is about winning. You go out with the intention of having fun – that’s what it’s all about. When I learned that, I started to play better. Golf play in Fairfax County continues to exceed the national average. Summer is the perfect time to take up the sport, and our public courses make it easy to get started without spending a fortune. You can sign up for classes or private lessons at our certified teaching facilities, and then build your skills and confidence on our ranges and practice greens, some of which are ranked among the best in the nation. Before you know it, you’ll be ready to play a round of golf, have fun with friends and meet new people from all walks of life. I’ll be there, and I look forward to seeing you on the course, too!

Golf Camp Leads to Lifelong Friendship There’s something reassuring about childhood friendships, especially those that are formed in summer camp. Just ask Liam Nowlin and Ryan Mychalus. The Westfield High School seniors developed a brotherly bond in the second grade after they signed up for golf camp together. Liam had so much fun taking the camp the year before, he encouraged Ryan to try it, too. “I already had ties to baseball and thought swinging was fun, so I was already drawn to it [golf],” Ryan recalled. “I thought, ‘why not try it?’” Summer Camp 2014

He tried it, he liked it, and year after year, the budding golfers registered for Fairfax County Park Authority golf camps together. Summer after summer, the boys looked forward to the challenges that made learning the game fun. “I remember the driving range,” Ryan recalled fondly. “The instructors would create new games with each club with challenges to see who is more accurate, who could hit further, stuff like that. They always made it fun.” “I really liked going out on the course,” Liam said enthusiastically. “You got to experience playing the game, which is a lot different from hitting balls at the range. It felt better.”

Twin Lakes 2020

They both learned the game so well, they made their high school golf team as freshmen, and they both lettered in golf as sophomores. What’s more, the now 18-year-olds learned skills that will help guide them throughout the game of life, like courtesy, respect and resilience in the face of adversity. “You can’t get frustrated,” Liam said as he reflected on a bad shot or any situation where things don’t go your way. “You’ve just got to go with it. You’re still in the game, and you’ve got to keep playing.” The life lessons will serve them well as they head off to college in the fall. Liam plans to lay the groundwork for a career in computer science. Ryan will shoot for the stars as he pursues a career as a meteorologist. While coursework will limit their time for golf, the best of friends will be forever bonded by golf camp and the successes they’ve shared along the way. “Golf is a great, competitive sport, but greater as a sport to have fun and bond with friends,” Ryan said. “We’ll play together as long as we can.” To find a golf camp at a Park Authority course near you, turn to the Camps section.

Learn-to-Swim Classes Offer Lessons for Life From the time she was 6 months old, Sydney Draetta took to the pool the way fish take to water. Her mother, Juanita, enrolled her in Park Authority aquatics classes early because she wanted to ensure her daughter’s safety around water. “She’s my only child, and I didn’t want her to drown, so I made a conscious effort to get her involved with swimming,” Juanita said. “She liked it, and she stuck with it.” Sydney progressed beautifully from the Park Authority’s baby-and-parent classes to children’s lessons to competitive swimming, and Juanita was there every step of the way, watching from the pool deck. The Fairfax mom never had any formal swim training herself, but she felt confident that she was learning enough by listening to what the aquatic instructors were teaching her daughter. She came to regret that decision during a recent family vacation to the beach. “The water was deeper than I thought,” Juanita recalled of their attempt to swim to a trampoline suspended in water off the shore of the Turks and Caicos Islands. “I panicked, and I didn’t know what to do.” Juanita says she wanted to swim back to the shore, but her struggle to stay afloat and her panicked-induced shallow breathing led to muscle failure, and she knew she couldn’t make it. Fearing that she would drown, Juanita started screaming, and 10-year-old Sydney, who had already climbed on to the trampoline with other people, answered her mother’s call for help. “I heard her yelling and thought she was joking when I dove in,” Sydney said matter-of-factly. “When I got to her, I realized she wasn’t joking and took her by the hand and led her to shore.” Sydney calmly gave her mother the instruction she learned from Park Authority swim instructors, “Once you hold your head back, your body will follow,” and together they made it to the shore. “Sydney was my little hero,” Juanita said with gratitude. “Every time I see her, I realize I might not have been here to help her. I might have left her and my husband, Ralph.” Determined to make the most of what she calls a second chance at life, Juanita has already started taking adult swim lessons at Oak Marr RECenter. She looks forward to strengthening her own swimming skills and ensuring that she’s around for many more family vacations and milestones to come.

Summer 2021

May is National Water Safety Month, and the Park Authority’s certified swim instructors offer learn-to-swim classes and private lessons for adults and children at all nine RECenters. To find a class near you, turn to the Aquatics section or contact the aquatics manager 5 at the RECenter of your choice.


Farmers Markets Offer Fresh, Local Pick of the Crop! There’s nothing like the taste of a fresh tomato or a juicy peach to bring out the flavor of summer. Starting in May, Fairfax County’s 10 farmers markets come to life with a feast for the senses ranging from colorful fruits and vegetables to fragrant flowers and baked goods to locally sourced eggs, dairy and meat. “The advantage to shopping at Park Authority Farmers Markets is that everything is grown within a 125-mile radius of Fairfax County and picked at the peak of freshness,” said Patrick McNamara, a naturalist and vegetable gardening instructor at Frying Pan Farm Park. “Generally, the richer the color of produce, the deeper the flavor.” When it comes to flavor, McNamara says timing can make big difference, too. Early harvests of vegetables like lettuce, broccoli and Brussels sprouts tend to have a more delicate flavor, while those harvested later in the season usually have bolder tastes. “Early potatoes are smaller and have a different flavor than larger, later varieties,” he said. “Heirloom tomato varieties have fuller flavors than commercial hybrids, and with squash, the smaller the vegetable, the milder the flavor. Larger squash has stronger, earthier flavors.” McNamara says your senses are a good way to select melons, too. Cantaloupes should be fragrant, and the stem area should give way under gentle pressure. They will continue to ripen off the vine. By contrast, watermelons stop ripening once harvested, so you should look for watermelons that have a yellow, flat spot on the underside – an indication that they spent more time on the vine for ripening. Perhaps the best way to learn your way around the Farmers Markets is to talk to the growers themselves. They can provide information that grocery stores cannot because they cultivated the crops themselves and harvested them for your table. “Growing plants and food for others is their passion project and they love it,” McNamara said. “The more you get to know them, the more they will reveal you, and by developing that relationship, you’ll feel more confident that the fresh fruits and vegetables you select will suit your family’s tastes.” That sense of community can give you the assurance that produce you purchase at Park Authority Farmers Markets is fresh, locally-grown and consistently great. 6

Park Preschool Program Expands It’s easy to see why Park Authority preschool programs at Lee District and Spring Hill RECenters are so popular – even in the midst of a pandemic. Spacious, colorful classrooms and a cheerful welcoming atmosphere make our licensed, accredited preschools seem like home away from home for children ages 3 to 5. Child-sized furniture, kid-friendly activities and dedicated instructors make for fun and nurturing places to learn. “It’s phenomenal,” said Héctor Salazar Salame who enrolled his 4-year-old son, Xavier, in the Spring Hill preschool in September. “The program has been top-notch, the facility is very clean and there are a lot of [COVID-19] safety protocols in place, which gave us a lot of confidence from day one.” Parents whose children are enrolled in the Lee District program say they are equally impressed with both the instruction and the preschool environment. “This program has been a lifesaver for our family,” said one parent who responded to a recent preschool satisfaction survey. “The staff is very professional and so great with the kids. I also feel that the education my child is getting is top notch. Thank you for your effort in making this a fun and safe environment during these times.” Plans to expand the half-day preschool programs were in the works prior to the pandemic to accommodate a growing number of children who were on waiting lists. Beginning this fall, both programs will add classrooms, and both will continue to follow health safety protocols recommended by the CDC and the Fairfax County Health Department. “So far, I feel comfortable with the COVID-19 [safety] procedures put in place,” said another parent who responded to the survey. “My child always comes home excited to tell me all that was done/ learned each day of school.” Class sizes are kept small so that students can receive more personalized instruction. Both two-day and three-day programs are offered at both locations. By the time the children graduate, parents say they are well prepared for the next step. “After two kids attending five years apart, we honestly couldn't be happier,” reported a veteran parent who responded to the survey. “Both kids came out confident, happy and ready for kindergarten. Just keep it up! The program is fabulous!”

Summer 2021

Registration for the fall program is underway. To learn more about the program, visit www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/recenter/preschool. To register, call Lee District RECenter at (703) 922-9841 or Spring Hill RECenter 7 7 at (703) 327-0989 and ask to speak to the preschool director. Summer 2021


Burke Scouts Earn Rare Achievement in Park Programs

When it comes to scouting, Pablo and Gabriel Sejas-Fernandez have accomplished something few other Boy Scouts have ever accomplished in the program’s 110-year history. In addition to earning scouting’s highest honor, the Eagle Scout Award, Pablo, 17, and Gabriel, 16, have each earned all 137 merit badges that the Boy Scouts of America currently offers, including every merit badge offered through Fairfax County Park Authority scouting programs. “It means a lot to look back and see how far we’ve come,” Pablo said as he reflected on their collective experiences. “We backpacked along the Appalachian Trail, and we went canoeing, kayaking and camping. We even got to learn about auto mechanics and railroading, and I loved electronics.” “You learn life skills like respect, time management, communication and practical skills, like cooking” Gabriel said. “You learn how to be independent, which would be helpful to any kids.” Their scouting adventures began six years ago when a friend invited Pablo to a camp-out at Burke Lake Park. It was the first time the then 11-year-old had ever been camping. “Fishing was really fun,” Pablo said with a grin. “I caught like 10 fish that day, and it hooked me on scouting, and I made a lot of friends.”

“My big brothers are an inspiration to me,” Anthony said as he reflected on the start of his merit badge journey at Hidden Oaks. “When I was doing the sustainability program, we looked under logs and I saw two salamanders and a beetle. We learned a lot on the trail.” The three brothers agree that scouting opens doors to opportunities that they otherwise wouldn’t have experienced, and the skills they learned in the merit badge program helped inspire their future goals. Next year, Pablo will head to college to pursue a career in cyber security. Gabriel plans to forge into the field of herpetology, a vocation inspired by the Reptiles and Amphibians merit badge he earned at Hidden Oaks. After following in his brothers’ scouting footsteps, Anthony plans to join the military. “This Scouting program in Fairfax County parks has been such a blessing,” said the boys’ mother, Renne Fernandez. “I love it, and the pre-work is educational for them and it makes them show that they have done the work and that they are prepared.” It’s a solid foundation that helps prepare Scouts for whatever life brings. Best of all, the opportunity is available just minutes from home in Fairfax County parks. To find a Scouting program near you, turn to the Scouts section.

Gabriel took an interest in scouting, too. Within a year, the determined brothers set their incredible merit badge goal. Gabriel earned many of his badges at Hidden Oaks Nature Center, and ultimately chose that park for his Eagle Scout project. “The counselors at Hidden Oaks were great, and I wanted to do something to give back to them,” he said with appreciation. “I cleaned out invasive Japanese stilt grass along the newly paved trail and replaced it with native plants.” Pablo earned his Eagle Scout Award with a similar project in an Indian Springs neighborhood. Now, he and Gabriel are cheering on the youngest of the three siblings, Anthony, 11, who has already earned 25 merit badges and expects to earn his Eagle Scout award in three years. 8 8

Burke Lake Club Champion Gets

NATIONAL HONOR

You could call Justin Snow the Bubba Watson of Burke Lake Golf Center. The selftaught amateur golfer honed his skills at Burke Lake while pursuing his undergraduate degree at nearby George Mason University. After winning Burke Lake’s Club Championship in a three-way playoff in 2020, the 26-year-old found himself holding an unlikely invitation to represent Burke Lake Golf Center in the inaugural, 2021 PGA National Club Championship at one of the most storied courses in professional golf – Pinehurst No. 2. “Burke Lake is one of the first tournaments I ever played in, and to go from there to the biggest stage in golf, home of the U.S. Open, is pretty unbelievable,” Snow said with astonishment. “I’ve never played in that intense of an environment before. There were a lot of spectators, officials, and a lot of pressure focused over three days, and the No. 2 course lives up to all the hype.” The PGA National Club Championship celebrates and recognizes amateur club champions from across the United States. The No. 2 course at Pinehurst opened in 1907 and is renowned for its beloved fairways and its immensely challenging greens. It has hosted more championship tournaments than any other golf course in America, and it is where golfer Ben Hogan launched his illustrious career. For Snow, playing at Pinehurst in the shadow of legends was an experience of a lifetime. As much as he relished the opportunity, he admits he’s glad to be back home playing golf among friends. “Burke Lake Golf Center is a great place to learn the game and go out and have a good time with friends,” he said. “I will try to defend my title this fall, and I know some of my buddies are gunning for me!” After the big-league pressure Snow felt playing at Pinehurst in March, competing in the Burke Lake Club Championship this year may seem to him more like a goodnatured game among friends than a test of nerves. Summer 2021

VOLUNTEER PROFILE

Stephanie Reny Providence RECenter

No one will bring a smile to your face faster than Stephanie Reny. The volunteer greeter at Providence RECenter has a knack for connecting with customers, lifting their spirits and brightening their day. “She’s a little ray of light,” administrative assistant Karen Gilmore said enthusiastically. “She’s always up and always happy when she greets people cheerfully with, ‘Hello my friend!’” “She just adds this element of positivity and optimism to everyone she meets,” said volunteer coordinator Beth Gallagher with a grin. “It’s refreshing.”

Stephanie’s eternal optimism and outgoing personality are characteristics of Williams Syndrome, a rare, developmental disorder she’s had since birth. She thrives on socializing and enjoying life, and she has a soft spot in her heart for those she calls ‘special’ people like her - customers with disabilities. “I’m a special and unique person and I like having fun and helping out,” she said as she reflected on her seven years of Friday-morning volunteer service at Providence. “The staff and people make me happy, and they understand about special people like me.” After a one-year absence until she could get a COVID-19 vaccine, Stephanie is thrilled to be back at her volunteer post. In some ways, her return to the RECenter is a little like a long-awaited homecoming.

“Good morning my friend; it’s good to see you,” she cheered as she welcomed guests and conducted temperature checks recently at the RECenter entrance. As difficult as the past year has been for Stephanie, she chooses to focus on celebrating her reunion with friends. She also looks forward to having fun once again helping with summer camps, the Halloween Monster Mash Parade and other festive traditions at Providence. “Stephanie lives in the moment and is always happy and grateful, and that’s a good reminder for all of us,” Gallagher said. “That’s something I really appreciate.”

Adapted Recreation Classes and programs may change for pandemic-related reasons. For up-to-date listings, visit www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/parktakes.

Adapted Recreation Programs

ADA/Inclusion Support

In keeping with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Fairfax County is committed to giving all residents equal access to recreation and leisure opportunities. Park Authority activities, programs, camps and classes are inclusive, and reasonable accommodations are available for people with disabilities. ADA accommodations include sign interpreters, assistive listening devices, program modifications and inclusion support. To request accommodations, or for more information about adapted program opportunities, call (703) 3248563. The Park Authority makes every attempt to provide accommodations; however, fulfillment of requests received with less than 10 days’ notice cannot be guaranteed.

Facility Accessibility

The Fairfax County Park Authority offers parks and facilities that are accessible to all Fairfax County residents. For information on accessible features or issues associated with usage, call (703) 324-8563 or visit www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks.

Adapted Aquatics

The Park Authority’s award-winning Adapted Aquatics program offers individualized swimming and water activity instruction for individuals with physical and intellectual disabilities. The program’s structured setting is ideal for individuals who aren’t ready to learn basic swim skills in a general recreation environment. Classes are conducted by certified instructors and trained volunteers to support a low student-to-instructor ratio. For more information, call (703) 324-8565.

Follow guidelines when registering

If it has been a month or longer since the student has participated in a swimming lesson, we suggest repeating the previous course completed. If you have any questions about which class is right for you or your child, please contact the Adapted Aquatics Coordinator at (703) 324-8565. For safety reasons and to ensure customers get the maximum aquatic program benefits, the Park Authority reserves the right to remove students from an inappropriate class and either issue a refund or place them, when possible, in a class that better matches their ability.

Practice and Repetition are keys to success

Each student progresses at a different speed in learning aquatic skills. Students often repeat a level several times before developing the endurance and skill proficiency necessary for advancement. Repeating a level does not constitute failure; it is to be expected. Mastering skills takes time, practice, and patience.

Swim Classes for Children

Aquatics

Baby & Me Swim

(6-18 mos.) Register your baby for this class designed for babies and their parent(s), or other favorite adult who want to learn water adjustment and aquatic skills together in a fun environment. Learn how to enter and exit the water in a safe manner, feel comfortable in the water and explore submerging to the mouth, nose and eyes. Explore buoyancy on front and back, change body position and learn safety information. Two adults may participate with each child. Babies must wear tight-fitting swim diaper and plastic pants under bathing suit.

Fairfax County Park Authority aquatic facilities offer something for everyone. From infants to senior citizens to people with special needs, we serve all levels of swimming ability and aquatic interests. Monthly calendars listing pool hours are available at the Park Authority’s nine RECenters and online at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks.

Follow guidelines when registering

If it has been a month or longer since the student has participated in a swimming lesson, we suggest repeating the previous course completed. If you have any questions about which class is right for you or your child, please contact the aquatic staff at your favorite RECenter. For safety reasons and to ensure customers get the maximum aquatic program benefits, the Park Authority reserves the right to remove students from an inappropriate class and either issue a refund or place them, when possible, in a class that better matches their ability level.

Practice and Repetition are keys to success

Each student progresses at a different speed in learning aquatic skills, depending on several factors including class attendance, coordination, water familiarity and outside practice. Students often repeat a level several times before developing the endurance and skill proficiency necessary for advancement. Repeating a level does not constitute failure; it is to be expected. Mastering skills takes time, practice and patience.

Small-Group Lessons

Combining course levels

When enrollment is low, course levels may be combined to avoid class cancelations.

U.S. Swimming, Synchronized Swimming or Dive Meets

Please see High School Swim & Dive Teams section for information regarding high school swim and dive schedules. For the most up-to-date pool closure information, please check the online aquatics calendar at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks, or contact your nearest RECenter.

RECenters now offer small-group lessons. This new lesson option complements the Park Authority’s other swim instruction offerings: • Private Lessons for students ages 3 to adult offer one-on-one instruction solely based on the student’s skill level. • Semi-private lessons for students ages 3 to adult offer instruction between two participants of similar ability and one instructor. • Small-group lessons offer the same curriculum as the larger, traditional group lessons but to a smaller group of swimmers. Small-group lessons lower student-to-teacher ratios, offer more personalized instruction and more practice time than large-group lessons. Traditional group lessons offer a comprehensive curriculum for participants ranging in age from 6 mos. to adult.

Practice Healthy Swimming Habits

Accidents in the pool involving vomit or fecal matter require the pool to be closed to clean and sanitize the water. Under Health Department standards recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), accidents involving fecal matter now require longer pool closure. Prevention is far better than clean up, so please follow the CDC guidelines: • Children (and adults) who have had diarrhea in the last two weeks should not go swimming. • Be sure to use the bathroom before getting into the pool and take frequent bathroom breaks. For public health reasons, standard diapers cannot be worn in the pool. Children who are not yet toilet trained must wear snug fitting plastic pants and/or a swim diaper under their bathing suit. Waist and legs on plastic pants or swim diapers must be snug enough to contain matter that could contaminate the pool. Please check diapers often, and change them in the locker room not on the pool deck. • Adults who have continence issues should refrain from using the pool. • Shower before entering the pool and after using the toilet. • Avoid swallowing pool water or even getting it in your mouth.

One-On-One Lessons

(3-Adult) Private swim lessons are a great way to improve swimming skills and water safety techniques of any level. With one-on-one swim lessons, an instructor can spend more time helping overcome obstacles which may require more time or dedication than a standard swim lesson. Children must leave parent willingly, be comfortable in the water, and be able to follow simple directions. Senior discount does not apply to these lessons. See website for details and times.

The 4 S’s of Water Safety Supervision

For questions or for a free Parktakes subscription, call (703) 222-4664.

Secure Swim Safe

Children should be directly supervised by an adult, even in the presence lifeguards. Non swimmers should be within reach of the supervising adult at all times. Secure your private pool with a locking fence. Learn how to swim well. The Park Authority offers a wide variety of swimming and water safety classes. Swim in safe areas only. Ideally, swim only in places supervised by a lifeguard.

Paddle & Skedaddle

(2-6 yrs.) Children accompanied by an adult test their water endurance skills by swimming the full distance of the Water Mine’s Lazy River then finish off by running a quarter mile stretch through Lake Fairfax Park. The Water Mine’s Lazy River water is 4 feet deep, so non-swimmer adults may still compete as long as the water level is no more than chest deep. Non-swimmer children, and adults by request, will be fitted with a Coast Guard approved life jacket or Puddle Jumper. Registration covers up to two adults and one child participant. Each child must have at lest one adult in the water within arm’s reach at all times. Not enough adults for all children? Contact (703) 324-8548 and we will make sure that every child can participate. 4ASD 1--1 hour lesson--$30 Location Day Time Code

F.C.P.A. CAMP GUIDE

CAMP REGISTRATION IS OPEN Refunds/Transfers for Camps & Workshops

• All refunds and transfers MUST be requested at least 14 days prior to the camp session from which you are withdrawing. All approved refunds will incur a $25 processing fee; there is no fee for approved transfers outside of the 14 days. • Transfers cannot be done online. Call (703) 222-4664 to transfer from one camp to another and avoid a fee. Transfers may only be made from one camp to another camp; not from a camp to a class or Rec-PAC. • Refunds and transfers are NOT permitted without 14 days’ notice. Within 13 days of the start of camp, refunds are given only if the child has a medical emergency and a doctor’s written verification is submitted BEFORE the camp begins. • If a camper cannot finish camp once it begins due to a medical condition, a doctor’s note is required within 24 hours for a pro-rated refund. Requests received after the camp session ends will not be granted. • There are no refunds or credits for missed days due to changed work or vacation schedules, illness, ages of other campers or other non-emergency reasons. In addition, refunds or credits are not given for changes to camp schedules due to weather.

Once registered, DOWNLOAD YOUR CAMP FORMS at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/camps In order to ensure everyone’s safety, activities may be changed or omitted due to the COVID status in our area. For more info on protocols during COVID, check out the FAQ on the camp web page at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/camps Did You Know?

• Some camps are licensed by the Virginia Department of Social Services. These camps require additional paperwork such as an immunization record and proof of child’s identity. Download the camp forms: www. fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/camps to determine if your child’s camp is licensed. • Not a county resident? No worries, non-Fairfax County residents are welcome in our camps. There is a $15 out-of-county fee. • Some camps are designed for students whose school session ends before Fairfax County Public Schools. • Camp length and times vary to provide scheduling options for customers. Be sure to check number of days and hours for each camp. • Worried about weather? On rainy days or when substantial rain is expected, some outdoor camps may be canceled for the day. On code red days, campers engage in outdoor activities during the day while taking in plenty of water and several shaded breaks. Many of our camps are held outdoors. Please check with the site for more information. • What do you need for camp? As a rule of thumb, most half-day camps will ask campers to bring a snack and drink. Full-day campers will need a snack, drink and lunch. If your child’s camp includes swim time, also bring a swimsuit and towel. ALL campers should wear weather-appropriate, comfortable play clothes and apply sunscreen before leaving home. • To expedite the check-in process, make copies of your child’s forms for each camp/each week. Forms are not transferred from one camp to another and can be downloaded: www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/camps • Does your child need medication during the camp day? Be sure to complete the Medication Authorization Form at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/camps • Is swimming part of your child’s camp? If so, there may be substitute activities when RECenter pools close in late August for maintenance and cleaning. Contact the RECenter directly for details. • Many RECenters and parks use premium classrooms and gyms in nearby schools during the summer as a respite from the heat. Campers may be transported via school bus or may walk to/from our facilities to a nearby school during the camp day. • Several camps require signed waivers for participation. To request a review of the waivers prior to registering, email us at camps@fairfaxcounty.gov • Host-a-Coach Program: we are always looking for families who would like to host a British soccer coach for a week during the summer. In turn for hosting, families earn a free week of British soccer camp. For application and details, visit www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/camps • Register early! Camps that do not meet minimum requirements for enrollment may be canceled. This decision is made two weeks in advance. • Hidden Oaks is growing with a new classroom and amenities! Check the site’s webpage at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/hiddenoaks for an updated camp schedule. • Camps may be added after Parktakes was printed. Check camp website for more listings.

D E L L E DONOR PROFILE C N A Westfields Business Owners Association C

After last summer’s hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Park Authority’s free Summer Entertainment Series is back! No one is happier to see it return than Westfields Business Owners Association (WBOA) president Bill Keech, Jr. He says the Starlight Cinema drive-in movie series in Centreville helps bring a sense of community to the area, and the WBOA prides itself on supporting the event through the Fairfax County Park Foundation. “I take great pride in Westfields, both the place and the people,” he said enthusiastically. “Westfields is home to is 35,000 people who work here. It’s a major employment center, and we need to do more to interact with the surrounding community.

Since 2017, the WBOA has provided financial support for the popular movie nights that feature free motion pictures that appeal to both children and adults. The organization has also supported park programs at nearby Cub Run RECenter in Chantilly for the past decade. “We enjoy giving back to our community in different areas by contributing to programs, food drives and partnerships with other organizations that promote healthy activity, like the Park Authority,” Keech said. “It’s woven into the fabric as part of what we do.” Keech says partnerships and people are at the heart of the Westfields community, and events like the Starlight Cinema series bring the community together. It’s relationship building at its best and improves the quality of life for everyone. To learn how you can make a difference in parks, visit www.fairfaxparkfoundation.org.

Vernon RECenter and at Fairfax Ice Arena. • Students should report 15 minutes before class and be ready to go on the ice at class time. • Prior to the first class, students should attend a public session to become accustomed to the ice and to determine proper skate fitting. • Recommended clothing is a sweater or jacket, knit hat, gloves or mittens and warm, comfortable slacks. • Ice skating classes include free admission to public skating sessions equal to the number of classes. All group-lesson students are entitled to free rental skates for use during lessons and practice sessions. • Although there are no equipment requirements except as noted in Hockey 1 and up, head protection (hockey or biking helmets), knee and elbow protection are strongly recommended.
