Welcome!

This edition of Destination Recreation is your guide to summer fun in James City County! Please spend a moment with the brochure to learn about all the activities Parks and Recreation and our programming partners have to offer you and your family. Take time to visit the renovated James City/ Williamsburg Community Center. If you’ve been promising yourself a healthier 2010, our staff would love to provide you with a quick tour of the facility and the opportunity to experience the benefits of an access pass – time in the pool, gym, fitness area, on the walking track or even in the whirlpool! As the temperatures warm, we also welcome the return to outdoors. County parks provide citizens and visitors many options – from fun, to fitness and adventure through camping, swimming, fishing, boating, hiking and biking, just to name a few. You can vacation at home, and discover the great outdoors where you already live! Our special events, such as Thursdays on the Square in New Town and Family Fun Fest at Chickahominy Riverfront Park, also return! Our classes and camps truly offer something for everyone – from Ballet to Bellydance, to chocolate making or fashion design, to learning how to play the piano or producing a television show – we can keep you learning and entertained all summer long! The affordable, safe, and always popular REC Connect summer and before and after school programs continue to be offered at convenient sites throughout the community. May is Bike Month and July is Parks and Recreation Month, so check inside for all the activities scheduled to celebrate these occasions! Our goal will always be to offer quality programs and services that meet or exceed your expectations. However, in doing so, we must still respond to the changing economy and the local budget. Since 2009, we’ve reduced services, eliminated a few programs not generating sufficient revenue, and left vacant positions unfilled. These measures have so far resulted in a 12 percent reduction in the Division’s overall budget. However, more reductions in operational costs as well as fee increases will be implemented to meet the anticipated 2011 budget revenue shortfall.

Summer 2010

Overwhelmingly, you’ve always valued and supported us through program participation, the development and acquisition of new parks, and most importantly, as volunteers within the Division or through one of our affiliated organizations. This year, we’ll be relying on you even more to help us effectively and efficiently provide parks and recreation services and programs. Thank you for your continued dedication and commitment in helping maintain the great quality of life this community provides for our youth and families. Again, enjoy your summer. We hope you’ll spend time with family and friends – and with us! Sign up for a class, visit your parks, or enjoy our great facilities – the benefits are endless!

Teen Leadership and Development Creative Writing for Teens (ages 15-18)

Have you ever wished that you could share on paper that story that’s been brewing inside your head and you’re not quite sure how to begin? Or how about the science fiction or fantasy stories you have floating around in your head? Have you felt a little timid, or maybe even a little confused, about beginning one project or the other? Has someone, sometime in your life, discouraged you from being yourself by perhaps criticizing your imagination? Whatever has kept you from writing, or whatever kind of writer you are or want to be, this class will guide you easily and without judgment through your creativeness. Each participant will explore his or her own creativity with various short writing exercises given in class and through suggestions for short home projects. Participants will be able to share class writings in order to encourage one another and the instructor will provide gentle in-class critiques. Instructor: Suzi Gessert.

In this eight week class, participants will have the opportunity to explore and experience different ways to approach creativity through various art mediums. This class will allow the participant to work at his or her own pace with nonjudgmental guidance. Whether or not you consider yourself an “artist” is totally immaterial! Start now to think about the different kinds of mediums that might excite you! Maybe something as simple as pencil, or perhaps multi-media, chicken wire and paper mache, glue and oil pastels (for wonderfully fun faux “stained glass”), and more. This will be a 10-week class so that several projects can be completed. A supply fee of $12 will be due to the instructor the first day of class. Instructor: Suzi Gessert.

Frequently Asked Questions 1) If I’m new to the area or this will be the first time my child and/or I will take swimming lessons, how will I know what swim lesson level to register for? There are FREE swim evaluations for children and adults before the start of every swim lesson registration period. During these evaluations, trained aquatic instructors can assess the participant’s swimming skill and provide feedback on the best swim level. 2) What happens if a swim class gets cancelled? Generally, a make-up class will be added, extending the session as many days as needed. Make up sessions will be conducted on the same day of the week and time as the normally scheduled class. However, there will be times when there aren’t enough days to make up swim lessons. In these instances a $5 refund will be provided each participant for each class cancelled. The Class Cancellation policy is listed in the back of this brochure.

3) Why are swim classes at an indoor pool cancelled for thunder and lightning? Although the indoor pool is grounded, it still runs the chance of being struck by lightning. This cancellation policy was created as a safety precaution for all aquatic participants. 4) How will I know if my child should be registered for Level 1 or Level 2 swim lessons? The easiest way to determine the appropriate level is to gauge your child’s comfort in the water. If your child is comfortable in the water and will submerge their face, they should be registered for Level 2. If your child is timid in or near the water and is not comfortable submerging their face, nose or eyes in water, register them for Level 1. 5) How many participants are there in a group swimming class? In Swim Levels 1-5, there’s a maximum of 7 participants. Level 6 Rec Racers Fitness Swimmer has a maximum of 25 participants. In Parent and Child Aquatics Level A and Preschool Aquatics, there’s a maximum of 15 participants. 6) How long are swim classes? Parent and Child Aquatics classes are 30 minutes. All other swim classes are 45 minutes. 7) Do I have to stay on the pool deck while my child is taking lessons? If your child is enrolled in any swim lesson under Level 4, you must stay on the pool deck during lessons. Children in lessons under Level 4 have not yet developed the skills and endurance needed to pass the facility’s swim test, and therefore cannot swim without a parent present. 8) Can I drop my child off for swim class and then pick them up when it is finished? No, you must be in the facility while your child is participating in swim classes. If your child is in a swim lesson under Level 4, you must be on the pool deck. 9) Can we come in early or stay after class and swim? Yes, if your child has passed the swim test and has a current membership. However, keep in mind space is limited during classes.

11) If my child misses a class session, can they attend another class/another time? Because each class is based on size and ability, we cannot make individual accommodations. 12) How old must a child be to start swimming lessons? Participants must be at least six months old to register for Parent and Child Aquatics. 13) What is the temperature of the water? The temperature of the water is 84 degrees. 14) How quickly should my child advance through the various levels? Keep in mind that every child learns and advances at his/her own pace. Try not to compare your child to other members of the class; they will progress as they are ready. 15) What should I do if the class I need is full or if there are not enough participants enrolled? If a class is full, please sign up for the waiting list of ONLY the class in which you’re interested. The Aquatic Program Coordinator will contact you if there are openings available. Register early as classes fill up fast! Classes that have not met minimum enrollment will be cancelled the Friday before they are scheduled to start. 16) What if my child is registered for the wrong level? Be sure to read the class descriptions carefully. If a child is signed up for the incorrect class level, there is no guarantee that the child will be transferred to the correct class level once class begins. Children will only be transferred to the correct class level if there is space available in the class. If there is no space in the correct class level, a refund will be issued to the household. 17) What level should I register for if my child has taken a session off? It’s recommended that they repeat the most recent class they have passed or be evaluated on a free swim evaluation day. 18) Why should I add my child on a wait list? If your child is placed on a “wait list” when a class is full, then we will try to accommodate those waiting to enroll as soon as possible.

10) Can someone other than a parent bring my child to class? Yes, but they must follow the same rules and stay on the pool deck with the child at all times.

Aquatics

American Red Cross Learn to Swim Levels This swim program is progressive and taught by an American Red Cross Certified Water Safety Instructor. On average, participants repeat each level two to three times before becoming proficient in the required skills. This is very important for successful completion of each level. The ages on all swimming levels after Child Aquatics are 5 and older. If a child is four years old and has successfully completed Child Aquatics, they may be registered for American Red Cross Levels 1 or 2.

Parent and Child Aquatics

(ages 6 months - 3 years) It is never too early to start your child with swim lessons. Parent and Child Aquatics is an introduction to the water for young children and a water safety course for parents. Parents must be in the water with the child as it helps to develop swimming readiness by teaching children how to have fun in the water. The goal is to provide experiences and activities for parents and children to learn how to feel comfortable in the water and learn about choosing and using life jackets. Non-toilet trained children must wear a swim diaper. Class size is limited to a max. 15 children. JCWCC T/Th 5/25-6/10

My Place

My Place a 6,000 square foot playground with barrier free equipment, fencing and sidewalks to be located at an existing County park site where visitor traffic was already established.

5301 Longhill Road (adjacent to the James City/ Williamsburg Community Center), open daily sunrise to sunset

The ribbon-cutting ceremony for My Place was held in December 2009. Cutting the ribbon for the facility (l-r) are Jack Tuttle, City of Williamsburg; Pete Cruikshank, Leadership Historic Triangle; Sue Mellen, James City County; Leonard Sledge, LHT Class of 2009; and Dick Schrieber, Greater Williamsburg Chamber and Tourism Alliance.

The Class began work on the project more than a year ago. With County Board of Supervisors approval in February 2009, the playground took shape though conceptual planning and drawings. Fundraising efforts began with support from corporate sponsors, community donations and a commemorative brick paver campaign. Ground was broken for the $170,000 facility in October 2009. Grand Opening ceremonies were held in December. At My Place, all children play together – without bounds or judgments, but your help is always needed to support regular maintainance and repair of the facility. The playground is a privately-funded project of the Leadership Historic Triangle Class of 2009. For your $50 donation, you’ll receive a commemorative brick paving stone, which can be laser etched with your personal message. This paving stone will become part of the founda­tion of this special project, and will ensure future generations know that My Place is your place. To learn more, visit www.jccEgov.com/recreation/parks/index.html, e-mail jetchberger@james-city.va.us or call 259-5410.

Playgrounds are a place where children can come together to play, yell, swing and imagine. They are places where life lessons are learned – challenge, risk, cooperation and conflict resolution. Yet for too many families, playgrounds have become inaccessible due to physical limitations. My Place is inclusive, specially designed to welcome all individuals and families regardless of ability. My Place is a community project of the Leadership Historic Triangle Class of 2009. The class initiated the venture - to research, fund and build an accessible playground at the existing James City/Williamsburg Community Center on Longhill Road. Their goal was
