Montgomery County Recreation SUMMER LEADERSHIP CHALLENGE Ages 13-16: Summer Leadership Challenge (SLC) is a leadership development program that encourages exploration, independence and personal growth. Young people participate in interactive workshops that prepare them for leadership roles and employment. Our goal is to empower participants to effect positive changes within themselves and within their community. Young people will learn about employment opportunities they can pursue and become competent in leading others in activities. Each session concludes with participants coordinating and implementing a capstone project benefiting the local community. In addition to developing useful skills, participants will earn service learning hours and receive individual evaluations. At Summer Leadership Challenge, young people will establish lasting friendships, develop a sense of responsibility, learn to work effectively in groups, build accountability, and gain the confidence to solve problems independently. Participants will also receive an opportunity to earn CPR and First Aid certification. You may only register for one (1) session of SLC. Participants may earn up to 35 SSL hours for the session. No transportation is available. Camps will not meet July 4.

Golf and So Much More - Full Day

For kids who want to try golf but don’t want to spend all day at it, this great combo camp is a 50/50 split that will keep them interested all day long. With the help of a Montgomery County Golf Academy instructor, all campers will practice putting, chipping, driving, and using irons and woods at the Driving Range, and then on Friday, we will go to a nearby golf course to play a round of 9 holes. Golf equipment will be provided to those who don’t have their own golf clubs. Each camper will receive professional instruction, tees, and Golf balls. In the afternoon, full-day campers will participate in group activities such as field games (examples: soccer, basketball, kick ball, etc.), mini-golf, and water fun at the South Germantown Splash Park. Please note that all activities will be held outside, and can vary depending on the weather. Bring a non-perishable lunch and snack, water bottle, sunscreen, bathing suit, and towel. Fee covers instruction, tees, golf balls, and transportation to the golf course on Friday. Full-day campers will also get pizza for lunch on Friday. Don’t want full day camp? Sign up for half-day camp and concentrate on golf! South Germantown Driving Range 43913 43914 43944 43915 43916 43917 43918 43919 43920

Beginner/Intermediate Golf Camp

This half-day camp is just the ticket for kids 6-14 years old who have expressed interest in and/or shown a talent for golf, but aren’t quite ready to play a full round. With the help of a Montgomery County Golf Academy instructor, campers will practice putting, chipping, driving, and using irons and woods Monday-Thursday at the Driving Range. On Friday, they’ll compete in a small tournament at a nearby golf course. It’ll be a blast for juniors, and a great way to develop the skills needed to start playing golf with the family. Camp fee includes instruction, tees, golf balls and transportation on Friday. South Germantown Driving Range 43941

This is only for students who are serious about training and are ready to be pushed. Focus will be on conditioning, situational drills, strategies and match play.

Take your game to the next level while making new friends in this fun, week-long (and air-conditioned) camp for kids ages 8 to 14. Campers will be divided by age and experience. Younger campers and beginners will enjoy games-based activities that teach the fundamentals. Older and more experienced players will be grouped to ensure they get a good challenge during drills and point play with peers. There will be plenty of time for warm-ups, cardio, and cool down throughout the day, along with breaks for snacks and lunch, plus some off-court fun. Fridays at Totally Tennis will finish with a mini tournament featuring match play and large group games adapted for all ages and levels. Sneakers and comfortable clothing are a must. If you need to borrow a racquet, we are happy to loan you one. Please bring a non-perishable lunch (peanut free due to allergies), a refillable water bottle and snacks to last for a full day of camp.

Ah! Summertime - Tom Sawyer’s favorite season: School’s out, the Mississippi River is flowing gently, fishing’s good, and Aunt Polly’s inclined to forget about those bothersome chores. So what’ an imaginative child to do but seek adventure? In this camp we’ll re-enact some of Tom’s escapades from cane pole fishing, to whitewashing and hunting for treasure. We’ll also learn about rural life in the 1840s, America’s pre-industrial age, when most things were still handmade and self-sufficiency was the norm. We’ll do a bit of tin smithing, leatherworking, wood carving, and maybe even build a raft! In the playful spirit of Mark Twain, (who never quite grew up), come join us! Brookside Nature Center

Hand-in-hand, parents and their children will explore, laugh, play and learn about their natural world! Water play, building with nature and animal antics will keep parents and children busy. Whether it’s a ‘messy moment’ or animal movement warm-ups you’ll enjoy a balance of free play, organized games, story time and simple crafts with your best little trail buddy!
