Potomac River Heritage Kayak Trip

The "Nation's River" is an amazing waterway that maintains a near-wilderness quality as it flows between Maryland and Virginia to Georgetown and beyond. Each of our kayaking trips focuses on a section of the Potomac or a tributary, giving us the time and luxury of taking a closer look at its natural and cultural history. The exact location of this trip will depend on weather and river conditions on that day. We'll paddle for 3-4 hours on moving water, so you should be proficient at basic strokes and comfortable paddling flat water for a few hours at a time. This is not an instructional course, so if you've never paddled, try our Beginning Kayaking course first (see page 111). We will, however, do a quick review of moving water safety tips and maneuvers. Fee covers kayaks, paddles, PFDs, a dry bag, and round-trip transportation from Black Hill Regional Park to the river location. FOBH $60. Black Hill Visitor Center 185304 18 & up 1 Class $65

USTA 10 and Under Tennis It’s not remedial and not just for beginners– it’s real tennis, tailored to a child’s size (just like other youth sports like soccer, basketball and baseball have done for years).

Using the QuickStart Tennis play format, the classes use racquets, balls and courts that are sized just right for kids so they learn, rally, play, compete and enjoy the game right from the start. The courts are smaller (but still to scale); the balls are lighter, slower-moving and easier to hit; and racquets are smaller and lighter.

All classes include warm-up and cooldown activities, skill review and practice, and team games that reinforce tennis skills and tactics. For more information, visit www.10andUnderTennis.com, and sign up for a class today at www.ParkPASS.org

Beginner Tennis

Designed for students who have never played tennis. You’ll learn warm-up exercises, how to properly grip a racquet; basic stroke techniques for forehands, backhands, volleys, serves and overheads; tennis etiquette and vocabulary; as well as safety rules and how to keep score. •

Beginner, USTA

For pre-teen beginners, we’ve taken the exciting new “10 and Under Tennis” program and adapted it for kids 11-13. The difference between this and other beginning tennis programs? Everything is right-sized for the age group: racquets are lighter and smaller, balls are less bouncy and easier to hit, and courts are smaller (but proportionate) than adult courts. The benefits are immediate. Within an hour kids are rallying, having fun and psyched for more. They’re playing real tennis and having real fun. See p.139 for more details on “10 and Under Tennis,” and sign up today!

Beginner, Senior

Designed for adults 55 and older who have never played tennis, or have had minimal instruction. Your instructor will go over basic stance, grip, strokes (hitting technique), and court etiquette. We’ll use lowcompression balls that don’t bounce as high or travel as far as standard tennis balls, making the learning experience even more enjoyable and rewarding.

This wonderful new tennis program will change the way kids 10 and under learn and play tennis from here on out. Basketball, soccer and baseball all modify their fields and equipment to fit younger players. But when it comes to tennis, we ask children to play on adult-sized courts with hard, high-flying balls and adultsized racquets. 10 and Under Tennis uses the QuickStart play format and scales everything to kid-size, making tennis more fun right from the beginning. The classes listed here are held outdoors; for indoor 10 and Under Tennis classes, see page 139. Visit www.10andUnderTennis.com for more information, and sign up today at www.ParkPASS.org!

Little House in the Big Woods

The recollections of Laura Ingalls Wilder in her “Little House” books give us a glimpse of what it was like to grow up when America was also “growing up.” In this camp we’ll engage in many of the activities Laura did every day, from cooking over a fire and washing clothes on a washboard to making toys out of wood. We’ll also explore America’s story during the late 1800s to find out what life was like beyond the big woods. Fee includes the cost of a back-in-time field trip. Brookside Nature Center 174799

Botanical Art Camp

Come learn about Maryland’s natural history through its trees and wildflowers. Botanical art is a superb way of teaching careful observation and respect for nature’s diversity. Through observation techniques and fieldwork in both garden areas and natural forest, campers will learn how to journal, collect and make pressed plant specimens, then sketch, draw and paint what they’ve found. We’ll provide students with a sketchbook and their choice of media (graphite pencils, colored pencils or watercolors). At the end of the week, students choose a favorite work of art to be matted and framed. Spend the whole day with us! Register separately for the Botanical Lunch Break (bring your lunch) and the Green Thumb Garden Club in the afternoon (see page 158, left-hand column). Brookside Gardens 178799

Naturally Creative

Explore nature through art and art through nature! Visit a different habitat each day to investigate who lives there. We’ll go dip netting in the stream, catch insects and butterflies in the meadow, and hike through the forest looking and listening for signs of insects, birds and mammals. Afterwards, we’ll use different media to draw, paint and construct our view of nature. Projects include a birdfeeder, a gnome home, a tree craft, fish art and rock art. At camp’s end, we’ll send you home with an art supply set so that you can have fun creating nature art all year long! Brookside Nature Center 175200
