SUMMER MER

CAMP GUIDE Online Registration Begins February 6, 6 PM


2013 Summer Camp Guide School is out and it’s time to have some fun! Whether you’re mapping out your child’s summer months in advance or looking for a last-minute camp to fill up a week, Howard County Recreation & Parks’ 2013 Camp Guide has you covered. Thumb through the guide with your camper, pick the camps that fit his or her interests, check your family’s schedule and plan the entire summer on our back-page calendar. We have a camp for every taste. From cooking, crafts, fine arts and culture to dance, music, theater arts and science/technology, our camps introduce new skills without the pressure of homework or grades. Enriching camps keep the mind sharp when school is out and science has never been so fun as when campers launch their own rockets (Mad Science: 3-2-1 Blast-Off!, page 35). If your camper enjoys exploring the outdoors and adventures to unique locales, flip to page 6 to check out our Adventure, Nature & Outdoors section. Our award-winning camp, Extreme Recess, returns this year for six weeks (page 6). We also offer five weeks of safe fun with bows and arrows in our Archery Camp (page 6), providing ample opportunity for your camper to experience the newest craze.

Flip to page 41 to check out our popular sports camps. Certified instructors teach younger campers the basics of different sports in a non-competitive setting with diverse activities to keep every day fresh and exciting. Older campers can pick a sport-specific camp to sharpen their skills and prepare for the upcoming middle or high school season. We are also excited to begin offering a number of camps at the brand new Roger Carter Community Center, a state-of-the-art community center (opening in March 2013) featuring swimming and diving pools, basketball and volleyball courts, classrooms, fitness and exercise rooms, a climbing wall and much more. If you plan for the summer before the snow melts, dozens of our camps offer early bird specials. Register by March 1 to receive 10% off the listed price of designated camps. Many camps fill up quickly, so don’t delay! We know there are many options from which you can choose this summer, but we hope Howard County Recreation & Parks’ wide selection helps make your planning easier. Have a safe, fun and memorable 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 t"QQFBSTEB[FEPSTUVOOFE t*TDPOGVTFEBCPVUBTTJHONFOUPSQPTJUJPO t'PSHFUTTQPSUTQMBZT t*TVOTVSFPGHBNF TDPSF PSPQQPOFOU t.PWFTDMVNTJMZ t"OTXFSTRVFTUJPOTTMPXMZ t-PTFTDPOTDJPVTOFTT FWFOCSJFGMZ

What should you do if you think a concussion has occurred? 1. Seek 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. Keep 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. Inform 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. Help 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 t5BLFSFTUCSFBLTBTOFFEFE t4QFOEGFXFSIPVSTBUBDUJWJUJFT t*GJOEPVCU TJUJUPVU

Baltimore & Ohio (B&O) Railroad Station A National Historic Landmark, the B&O Railroad Station in Ellicott City is the oldest surviving railroad station in the United States. Erected in 1830-31, the station served as the terminus of the railroad's original 13-mile section of track. In service until 1972, the station is now a living history museum offering programs and exhibits that explore the development of transportation in America and the station's role in historical events of the 19th and 20th centuries. The museum is located at 2711 Maryland Avenue, Ellicott City, MD 21043 (intersection of Main St. and Maryland Ave. in the Historic District). Hours: Wednesday-Sunday, 11 AM-4 PM.

Blandair Farm Blandair takes its name from Theodorick Bland, a colorful figure in early Maryland politics. He served as Chancellor of Maryland from 1824 until his death in 1846. While the property was farmed as early as 1798, most of the existing buildings date from the mid-19th century, and include a granary, a springhouse, some tenant houses and the brick main house. Howard County purchased the property in 1998 and plans to develop the site as a regional park. While public access to Blandair is limited during restoration, occasional heritage programs are held there. The farm was also the site of the 2003 International Preservation Trade Conference. The property is located at 6651 Route 175, Columbia, MD 21044.

Bollman Truss Bridge The Bollman Truss Bridge is the only known remaining example of the revolutionary all-iron truss system patented by Baltimore engineer Wendell Bollman in the mid-19th century. Constructed in 1869, the bridge was moved to its current site in 1888 and was in use until 1915. Designated a National Historic Landmark in 2000, it is now utilized as a pedestrian bridge connecting Historic Savage Mill with the Mill Trail, a walk linking old mill sites along the Patuxent River. The bridge is located at 8650 Foundry Street, Savage, Maryland, 20763.

Ellicott City Colored School, Restored This one-room schoolhouse building was constructed in 1880 as the first public school for African-American children in Howard County.

The building, located at 8683 Frederick Road, Ellicott City, now houses a genealogical resource center and a museum chronicling the history of African Americans in Howard County. Changing exhibits and seminars highlight the contributions by people of color to the history of the region. Tours are offered Saturday and Sunday at 3 PM, April through October.

Pfeiffer’s Corner Schoolhouse Originally constructed about 1883, the Pfeiffer’s Corner Schoolhouse is one of the very few remaining one-room schools in Howard County. Restoration is now complete in its new location within Rockburn Branch Park, 6109 Rockburn Branch Park Road, Elkridge. Children were educated within its walls for over 50 years until it was converted into a residence in the 1940s. It was almost demolished when new homes were built on the property in the 1980s, but was saved through the efforts of local school children. They raised funds to have it moved in 1988 to county-owned parkland along route 108 near Clarksville, where it stood for several years until a permanent location could be found. In 2003, it was moved to Rockburn Branch Park where it illustrates the changes a 100-year time span has brought to our schools; serves as a historic exhibit in conjunction with the adjacent Clover Hill restoration; and provides space for demonstration classes, interpretive tours and small meetings. Info: 410-313-5131.

Thomas Isaac Log Cabin Named after its late 19th century owner, this rustic structure was built circa 1780 as a settler’s home of Ellicotts Mills. The cabin was reconstructed on the present site in the late 20th Century. Here, visitors can learn about the settlement and development of the region and artisans. The cabin is located at the intersection of Main Street and Ellicott Mills Drive in Historic Ellicott City, and is open Saturdays and Sundays, 1-4 PM, April through December. Private and group tours are available year-round, weather permitting. Info: 410-313-5131.

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

Registration Program fees are established by determining the cost of supplies; fees for instructors, rentals, registrations and program administration; and the price of marketing in order to deliver high quality programs at an affordable price. See our "How to Register" section on page 5.

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.

Canceled Programs We don’t like to cancel programs, but each one must meet its minimum enrollment. Don’t be disappointed — register early and bring a friend! An activity may also be canceled due to circumstances beyond our control, such as the unavailability of an instructor or location. If a program is canceled, registrants will be contacted immediately and a full refund credited.

Financial Assistance The Howard County Department of Recreation & Parks can provide limited financial assistance to Howard County residents who qualify. In addition to a completed application, you must provide one of the following: tWFSJGJDBUJPOPGRVBMJGZJOHJODPNFMFWFM PSUBYSFUVSO required) or tQSPPGPGBTTJTUBODFGSPNUIF%FQBSUNFOUPG4PDJBM4FSWJDFT Funds are limited, and a deposit of 25% of the program fee is required at least one month prior to start date with the application/registration form.

Refunds We recognize that you may wish to withdraw from a camp for a variety of reasons, but we encourage early decisions so as to not inconvenience other participants or affect our ability to efficiently deliver activities. Customers requesting a refund prior to two weeks before the camp starts will be given a full refund. Refunds requested within two weeks of the camp starting date will be charged a 20% administrative fee. Additional fees may be assessed to recover costs (shirts, supplies, equipment, etc.) associated with the program. There are no refunds given for missed camp days. Refund policies for licensed child care and therapeutic camps are on page 14 and 52.
