Rec center preps for summer Do a lot, or just hang out
“You feel safe here; it’s a really comfortable environment for kids of every age. You’re never bored here.”
By Tristan Hiegler of the Leader
The “rec center” in Port Townsend hosts a full slate of summer camps and activities for children of all ages. Jessica Winsheimer, a Jefferson County Parks and Recreation aide supervisor, said camps are available for preschool-age students, and elementary and middle school students; in addition, there are some adult activities. Located at the corner of Lawrence and Tyler streets in Uptown, the county-owned Port Townsend Community Center is home to senior citizen programs (upstairs) and youth programs (downstairs, in the rec center). Due to budget choices, Jefferson County closed the rec center in January 2010. However, thanks to student and community activism, the center was able to reopen in July 2011. Chris Adkins, now 15, said he started a petition to bring back the rec center. “I didn’t have anywhere to go,” he said. Adkins added he had made the center a part of his daily life. In school, he went from classroom to classroom collecting signatures, and ended up with about 600. Adkins spoke before the Port Townsend City Council and explained the center’s importance. “I talked about how I really needed the rec center and how the community needs it,” he said. “You feel safe here, it’s a really comfortable environment for kids of every age. You’re never bored here.” Winsheimer said Adkins’ actions provide a positive example of youth activism and gave a great illustration of why the center matters. “You do have a voice,” she said of the center’s younger customers. “I think it’s kind of unique to our town,” she said. “People take ownership of what they want and they need.”

The center’s summer hours begin on June 18: Monday-Thursday, 1:30-8:30 p.m.; Friday, 1:30-9 p.m.; Saturday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.; and closed Sunday. It boasts pool and foosball tables in the common area, and Winsheimer said kids can use an Xbox 360 gaming console with a Kinect motion sensor to play active sports games. She added that board games, such as chess, are also available. “It just doesn’t need to be movement of the body; it can be movement of the mind as well,” she said. The center has a full gym with a stage and small-scale rock-climbing wall for younger customers. Winsheimer said the center’s games room, gym or multipurpose room can be rented for private events. She said it costs $12 per two hours,

and the center asks for 10 percent of the revenue from ticketed events. For parents and kids wanting to check out the center before the summer camps start, Winsheimer said, there’s a free ping pong tournament and root-beer-float party on Saturday, June 2 at 5 p.m. Weeklong day camps start on June 18. The day camps are for ages 6-10 and cover a variety of subjects and activities. The Outdoor Adventure Camp is June 18-22 at the H.J. Carroll Park in Chimacum. Campers spend the week hiking, biking and playing various sports. The Food and Fun Camp runs June 25-29. Campers cook fresh food, bake treats and create food art, as well as explore centers such as the parks and the library.

The Junior Counselors in Training (CIT) program is for 11to 14-year-olds who want to assist with running the summer camps and make the transition from camper to counselor. “They’re that in-between glue that brings the camp together,” Winsheimer said. Applications for the CIT positions were due on May 11, but according to Winsheimer, interested teens may still apply. The fee is $150 for a fullday training session plus two weeks of camp. Registration forms and applications can be picked up at the rec center at 620 Tyler St., Port Townsend, or downloaded online at countyrec.com.

Sunfield Land for Learning expands summer camps
This summer, in addition to award-winning farm camps, Sunfield Farm in Port Hadlock offers weeklong camps in traditional and primitive skills, and practical arts taught by guest artists and adventurers. Sunfield has an 82-acre campus dedicated as “Land for Learning,” located between State Route 19 (Rhody Drive) and Tamanowas Rock/Anderson Lake State Park in Port Hadlock. Sunfield farm camps offer children (ages 4-19) a chance to be in nature, and to learn one of life’s most empowering skills: growing food. Campers tend Sunfield’s animals – Nubian goats, Cotswold sheep, free-ranging chickens, and rabbits – as well as organic fruits and vegetables. Camps are enlivened by singing, games and craft activities. New camps offer primitive and traditional explorer and wilderness survival
skills. For most camp sessions, parents may choose morning, afternoon or full-day options, from one week to six weeks long. Sunfield Shepherds 4-H and Students of the Land teen farm apprenticeships are multiweek commitments. To register for Sunfield Summer Camps, call 3853658 or visit sunfieldfarm. org. Sunfield recognizes that every child is different. Some children connect with nature by tending animals, others by harvesting plants and making herbal potions. Others love to make artwork, or they pretend to live in a different time or culture that demands acute attention to nature for survival. In every case, a child’s interest can create the opportunity to connect deeply with the natural world. Proceeds from Sunfield Summer Camps go to a community education program, through which Sunfield offers public workshops and

serves developmentally disabled teens/young adults, at-risk youths, and visiting elementary school children. Sunfield offers farm tours on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays during July and the first week of August. Outings are great for grandparents and grandchildren, for groups of adult friends, or a morning activity for out-of-town guests. Please call 385-3658 at least 24 hours in advance.
