After securing his fourth straight seat in Nepean-Carleton on May 2, Pierre Poilievre thought the message from voters was crystal clear. “It’s a signal that they want us to continue to deliver on results,” the Conservative MP said after addressing the crowd of nearly 100 people at Greenfield’s Pub in Barrhaven. “Projects like the Strandherd-Armstrong bridge, the rural road improvements in the villages and country-side communities are going to continue to be important. I’m going to continue to work to deliver those results while keeping taxes low at the same time.” Poilievre earned 54.4 per cent of the vote, ahead of Liberal candidate Ryan Keon who had 25.3 per cent of the vote at press time. Poilievre had more than 35,700 votes with 260 of 296 polls counting. Keon had 16,196. NDP candidate Ric Dagenais and Green candidate Jean-Luc Cooke were in third and fourth place with 16.2 and 4.1 per cent, respectively. The riding also had the country’s highest advance poll turnout. “I think we’re going to have to work to deliver on the platform commitments that we made,” Poilievre said. “We have to work on balancing the budget in three years and delivering a new tax rate. We have to secure the recovery. Of course we have to work with all political parties in order to achieve those goals.” Poilievre won 56 per cent of the Nepean-Carleton vote in 2008, 55 per cent in 2006 and 47 per cent in 2004 when he defeated then-Liberal incumbent David Pratt, becoming the youngest member of Parliament at the time.

Ottawa West-Nepean named John Baird as their MP once again on Monday night.

Repeat performance for Baird KRISTY WALLACE

Getting “tough on crime,” building more housing for seniors and improving the economy remain on John Baird’s todo list as he remains Ottawa West-Nepean’s member of parliament.

“We didn’t seek this election. We didn’t want this election,” said Baird on election night to a crowd of about 200 supporters. “But we’re overwhelmed by the confidence people have placed on Stephen Harper.” See ‘Baird’, page 2

From ‘Baird’, page 1 Baird gathered with his supporters —who broke out into cheers when it was announced that the Conservatives earned a majority government — in celebration at the Villa Marconi Centre’s hall on Baseline Road. However the media was told in an email that they weren’t allowed to speak to supporters at the event held on election night. “It has been that way in previous elections,” Baird’s director of communications, Chris McCluskey, told Ottawa This Week, adding that “media interviews are with John Baird tonight.” When asked about the future of transparency in his Ottawa West-Nepean riding, Baird said the media had put an “unusual focus” on restrictions placed on the media and that Canadians are more concerned with issues dealing with health care and the economy. With the New Democratic Party as the official opposition for the first time ever in Canadian history, Baird said the Conservatives will work well with their new official opposition. “I always had a fantastic working relationship with the NDP,” Baird said. “I may disagree with Jack Layton on a lot of policies, but he’s a hell of a good guy.” Baird still has a few changes he

“I always had a fantastic working relationship with the NDP. I may disagree with Jack Layton on a lot of policies, but he’s a hell of a good guy. ” John Baird

would like to make in Ottawa WestNepean including getting tough on crime, getting more housing for seniors, protecting the greenbelt and improving the economy. In addition, Baird hopes to continue working with Canada’s Economic Action Plan and focus on jobs and infrastructure spending – like recent renovations done at Algonquin College. “Our first priority is to get the budget passed, focus on jobs and the economy,” he said. Baird has been the riding’s member of parliament since 2006 and served as the country’s environment minister. When he was re-elected in the

2008 election, he was named minister of transport, infrastructure and communities. He was named leader of the government in the House of Commons in August 2010, and took on additional duties in November, once again as minister of the environment. Marlene Rivier, the riding’s NDP candidate who Baird referred to as an “extraordinary woman,” was thrilled Monday night at the results. She admitted that a Conservative majority wasn’t what the party wanted to see, but that the party respects the voters and what they’ve chosen. “We’re just dancing here,” she said, referring to the NDP becoming the official opposition. “We’re absolutely delighted and Jack Layton will be a fantastic opposition leader. It’s very exciting.” Rivier added that she will continue to be president of the Ottawa West-Nepean NDP Riding Association. Supporters for Anita Vandenbeld, the Liberal candidate for Ottawa WestNepean, gathered at the Ukrainian Hall on Byron Avenue and watched the results in disappointment. However one of her supporters and volunteers, Mary Turnbull, said she ran a great campaign. “This is the first time I’ve ever supported any party,” Turnbull said. Vandenbeld could not be reached for comment on election night.

Poilievre vows to continue his work

From ‘Poilievre’, page 1

Poilievre said he is proud of providing help to drug addicted youth, improving rural roads and making the quality of life better for soldiers returning home. He cited the Strandherd-Armstrong bridge is his main priority, a 141-metre structure that is being built over the Rideau River and will connect Barrhaven and Riverside South by spring 2012. He was responsible for securing the federal government’s $16-million share of the $48-million cost, which was split between the three levels of government. Poilievre added he aims to double the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit to $500. The tax credit – which was the idea of Osgoode resident Anne Taylor – gives families a financial reprieve if they register their children in sports leagues. The credit would be extended to adults who pay to participate in fitness activities. “It’s a sign of the enormous contributions the citizens of Nepean-Carleton are making,” he said. The mood at the Ryan Keon camp was cautiously optimistic until the very end, when Keon entered the Centurion Conference Centre with his two kids and wife Cindy to concede defeat. “I have way too much respect for the work my volunteers did, to say I would have done anything differently,” Keon said. “A special thank you to all those people two years ago who believed me when I said we could win, I thought we would win.” His father Dr. Wilbert Keon – a retired

Conservative senator – said that the stars weren’t aligned for his son’s win. “But I have a lot of respect for the dignity with which he ran his campaign,” he said. For Dagenais, doubling up on the numbers from the last election was something of which he was proud. “Looking at the size of our campaign this there were smaller numbers,” he said. But on the bright side, “the numbers almost doubled and that shows the party (NDP) is moving it the right direction.” Although he finished in fourth place, Cooke felt the election was a momentous one – particularly since Green Party leader Elizabeth May was elected in SaanichGulf Islands. “We have seen a lot of historic things tonight,” he said. “The Greens have their first elected member, we are seeing the Bloc wiped out and amazing things happening with the NDP. The Conservatives now have a comfortable majority. Let’s hope they govern with wisdom rather than ideology.” After winning for a fourth consecutive time, Poilievre said he has no expectations of a cabinet position at this time. “I think (former Conservative House of Commons leader) John Baird is a fantastic regional minister and I expect that he will continue to hold that position,” he said. “I’m fully happy to support him in that role.” Whether or not Poilievre has an enhanced role in the House of Commons, he said he will continue to push for results for residents in Nepean-Carleton.

Province gives out cash for aboriginal cultural tourism JENNIFER MCINTOSH

Turtle Island Tourism Company will ring in the spring season with some good news thanks to a $20,000 cash infusion from the province. The company, based in Ottawa’s west end, will be receiving the money for a pilot program called the Aboriginal Cultural Ambassadors (ACA). ACA is a customized training program that will prepare aboriginal people for careers in aboriginal cultural tourism. “This is the first time we have seen conventional tourism training paired with aboriginal culture,” Bob Chiarelli, the MPP for Ottawa West-Nepean, said, adding that it is also a youth initiative. “This will provide training and summer employment for 80 students across the province,” he said. Turtle Island Tourism works in partnership with the Odawa Native Friendship Centre, a cultural centre serving the aboriginal community in the Capital region. The program, which will run out of the tourism company’s Victoria Island site, will balance essential tourism skills with an opportunity for participants to share an authentic experience of their own culture — including elders’ teachings, storytelling, theatre and dance workshops and self-directed cultural studies. “Turtle Island Tourism and our part-

Emma Parsons, 8, took part in the community bike rodeo hosted by the Arlington Woods Community Church and the Trend Arlington Community Association on April 30. It was the first time for the event which hosted a nuber of activies for familes including bike safety tips, an obstacle course, bike tune-up centre, face painting, silent auction, bouncy castle and barbecue with 100 per cent of funds raised going towards Banner Park net climbing aparatus. The community pitched in with auction items and donations from Greenbank Square businesses, Metro grocery store and M&M meats. The event raised $800 and is earmarked to help offset costs of the Banner Park net climber for which another $3,000 is needed for the equipment.

ner Aboriginal Experiences are thrilled to launch this innovative training program — the first of its kind in Canada to include National tourism certification,” Trina Mather-Simard, president of Turtle Island Tourism, said. The company — whose mission is to provide authentic Aboriginal experiences to visitors of Canada’s capital region — gets its name from the native name for North America (Turtle Island).Victoria Island, home to the Aboriginal Experiences site, is on land owned by the Algonquin tribe and is nestled in the shadows of Parliament Hill. Complete with teepees and log cabins, the area has the feel of a mock native village. The site was open seven days a week during the summer months. That won’t be the case this year though, as a good portion of the village displays and seating were destroyed on April 2 in a fire at the longhouse. Staff have rebuilt most of what was lost, with the exception of the longhouse. Visitors this summer will be housed in tents and temporary shelters and have an opportunity to experience packages which include a guided tour and traditional dances. As part of the April 27 announcement of funding, Turtle Island Tourism will be training 13 students per year in a six-month, full-time program. Approximately 50 to 80 students from across the province will be participating in a two-day course this summer offer by the company.

Dog guide walk aims to raise $1,000 LJ MATHESON

Photo by LJ Matheson

WONKY Students at D. Aubrey Moodie Intermediate School hosted three local elementary schools this week to watch their annual production, Willy Wonka Jr. The cast and crew welcome family and friends to Thursday and Friday (May 5 and 6) performances at 7 p.m.

Faye Wilson has a hope to raise $1,000 at this year’s walk for dog guides on May 29 at the Nepean Sportsplex. The Kemptville woman says it will be the second year that the Purina Walk for Dog Guides – which is a national event – will be held in Nepean. “This is the 20th year, but it’s new to the Barrhaven/Nepean area,” Wilson said, who is the organizer for the five kilometer walk where participants are asked to raise pledges. There are more than 200 walks across Canada. This is the foundation’s largest annual fundraiser and raises funds to help train dog guides for Canadians with visual, hearing, medical or physical disabilities. Walks are organized by local volunteers with support from Lions Foundation of Canada, of which Wilson is a member, and it has raised more than $7 million since it began. Registration will be held at 9 a.m. with the walk to begin at 10 a.m. “Last year we had 10 people; if we have that again this year and can raise $1,000, I will be happy,” said Wilson. Thanks to Nestlé Purina PetCare Canada and the event’s national sponsors, 100 per cent of the funds you raise go directly to the work of training and providing dog guides. Funds raised from the walk help to provide dog guides to Canadians who need them. There is no entry fee. Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides (LFCDG) is a national charity. Its

mission is to provide service to Canadians with a medical or physical disability in the areas of mobility, safety and independence. Since 1983, Lions Foundation of Canada has operated Dog Guides Canada to provide specially trained Dog Guides to more than 1,600 men, women and children from coast to coast. In addition to training dog guides for people who are blind or visually impaired, LFCDG also trains Dog Guides to meet the needs of Canadians with disabilities. “Training for disabilities like autism or epilepsy is fairly new,” Wilson said. All dog guides and required training, including transportation and accommodation, are provided at no cost to qualified applicants. The Foundation does not receive any government support and relies on the support of fundraising events and donations from service clubs, corporations, foundations and individuals across the country. Dog Guides Canada operates five programs that include for vision, hearing, special skills, seizure response and assistance for autism for children aged four to 12 years of age. Wilson noted that it takes many resources to raise, train and place a highly skilled animal. From learning basic house manners to learning skills required of them in service, it costs up to $20,000 to achieve this goal. “The Lions Foundation of Canada believes no one should be denied their independence as an active member of their community. That’s why all dogs are provided at no cost to recipients,” she said.

them for the week-long national tournament. “Our players today that are 7-8 and will be 11-12 in 2015, no doubt there will be a special emphasis on that age group,� adds Campbell, whose Eagles receive an automatic entry into the six-team competition. “We want to be competitive when we face the best teams that come here from across Canada.� All key positions on the organizing committee are already filled for the event that carries a budget of $100,000, but their biggest task in the coming years is to secure an additional $350,000 for the “legacy� project from the 2015 tournament. The plan is to construct a media building complete with a PA system, electronic scoreboards (the current graffiti-covered score placard was not used on opening day) and storage space for the ballpark’s supplies when not in use. The Eagles have already begun their own fundraising efforts with a raffle and they’ll soon begin recruiting sponsors for 2015, but the presence of local politicians – a list that included Mayor Jim Watson, city councillors Jan Harder, Mark Taylor and Steve Desroches, MPP Bob Chiarelli and MP Pierre Poilievre – to help throw out the opening pitches carried a little more significance than being purely ceremonial. “Hopefully the three levels of government can provide some of the resources they need to get ready for (the 2015 nationals),� says Chiarelli, Ottawa WestNepean’s MPP. “I’m fairly certain the province will be at the table,� notes Chiarelli, a former little league player himself. “It’s a very excellent city facility, but in order to host the national championships, they have to enhance it significantly.� Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches agreed that it’s “an idea worth exploring.� “We have the Little League championships that will be coming to the City of Ottawa and I think there’s a good opportunity to improve some of the infrastructure here in the south end,� he says. “It’s a community that’s growing very rapidly.� “Spring is in the air,� Desroches smiles. “This is a Canadian tradition and it’s great to see the kids out here being active and playing.�

‘Road to 2015’ Canadian Little League championships begins for East Nepean The BBQ sizzled all afternoon serving up the staple game-day hotdogs and fans soaked up the shorts and T-shirt weather as the sounds of baseball returned to South Nepean Park for the East Nepean Eagles’ opening day on Sunday, May 1. “The grass is turning green and it’s a nice warm day,� beams Bruce Campbell, the East Nepean Little League’s president of 17 years. “That’s what’s special – just being outside. And isn’t baseball the official start to summer?� Despite the fact it was their first time on the diamond this year – and that they needed an exemption from the city to be allowed onto the fields a few days before everyone else – the East Nepean players put on a good show for the opening day crowd with a close season-opening contest. Mitchell Shahen wound up scoring the winning run on a wild pitch to give his Gothams a 5-4 win over the Athletics in Major-level springtime house league play. It was also a big day for East Nepean because it marked the first games played since the organization was awarded the hosting rights for the 2015 Canadian championships for 11- and 12-year-olds. In four years’ time, East Nepean youngsters will compete on their home field for the right to represent Canada at the Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA – a feat last accomplished by an Eagles team in 2004. “It’s still several years away, but it’s a really big deal,� says Campbell, who recalls the 2004 national title with great fondness. “I didn’t have any of my children on the team, but even I’d be at a loss of words to properly describe how it felt when it was that last out of the last game and you knew you were Canada’s team going to the Little League World Series. You just can’t explain how exciting it is.� Campbell expects Eagles teams of all levels to compete for district and provincial crowns, thanks to the 600+-player organization’s already strong development programs. But there are plans to ensure the group that will compete in 2015 receives as many structured clinics as possible to prepare

Compromise a must for Tories


tephen Harper’s appeal to the voters to deliver him a majority government did not fall on deaf ears. The Conservatives picked up 166 seats, with 71,486 of 71,513 polls reporting – an increase of 23 seats. The Tory tide once again swept across Ottawa, with only David McGuinty and Mauril Belanger holding on to Liberal seats in Ottawa South and Ottawa-Vanier. In Ottawa Centre, Paul Dewar, son of former Ottawa mayor Marion Dewar secured his seat for the NDP. The anticipated surge of NDP support did not hurt the Tories, except in a few ridings in Quebec, where most of the seats picked up by the party were taken from the Liberals. During the campaign, the prime minister warned Canadians that a minority Tory government couldn’t hold on to power and would fall prey to a coalition of the Liberals, NDP or potentially the Bloc Quebecois. Harper’s predictions were alarming with warnings of hits to the financial markets, deficit spending and possibly reopening the Constitution for another divisive debate that nobody wanted. Canadians obviously listened, and Harper

no longer faces the spectre of having to compromise or work to achieve consensus with the opposition. But is that necessarily a good thing? Yes, a majority government will give the Tories the tools to pass legislation that could have been delayed by a united opposition. And as Tory MP Gordon O’Connor pointed out, a majority win will allow the Conservatives to stand down from continuous preparation for yet another election, and focus on the task of governing. But when they were a minority government, the Tories were forced to listen to the ideas of other parties and to compromise. The politics of consensus forces a leader to sift through the ideas of competing parties and incorporate the best parts within his or her own policies.We hope winning a majority won’t go Harper’s head. The Tories often use the word “arrogance” to explain the federal Liberals fall in fortune, they might want to avoid a similar accusation over the next four years. Be a good prime minister, Harper. Listen to other ideas, use the best ones. Remember, in a democracy we elect a prime minister, we don’t anoint a king.


A winter game for all seasons


any factors go into making Canada the unique country it is, as recent political events have shown. On a non-political level, we have Tim Hortons and the Group of Seven and large group of comedians located in the United States. We have football with three downs. We have three coasts and at least two seasons. We have many languages and very few species of deadly snakes. We have movie theatres that don’t show Canadian movies. Oh, wait, other countries have those too. One of the other non-political things that has been commented upon lately is that fact that our hockey season, the season for a winter game played on ice, now lasts into June. In fact, one estimate puts the last possible Stanley Cup final game as late as June 18. This has consequences that go far beyond sport. Coupled with daylight saving time, it means that many Canadians will be indoors in the air-conditioning watching television while the sun is still shining and they could be outside playing games and getting fit. It also means that a goodly percentage of Canadians, those who avidly follow playoff games played on the west coasts

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town of Canada and the U.S., show up for work tired and grouchy, or not show up at all. Productivity, a major concern of newspaper columnists, declines. Furthermore, children of permissive parents who avidly follow games played on the west coast will be difficult in class unless, mercifully, they fall asleep. This may explain why our children are constantly outperformed by children who come from countries where there is no hockey. These are some of the important social and economic consequences of our obsession with hockey and the hockey owners’ obsession with dragging out the season as long as possible in order to make more money. As we see from the world news, in most other countries, spring is a time for getting the crops in, playing baseball and staging insurrections. Not here. Which just goes to show that there is more to

the Canadian identity than an unelected Senate and the notwithstanding clause. If the hockey nuttiness ended here, you could put it down to a mild case of national eccentricity — people staying up too late, watching TV when they could be strolling in the spring evening air when it’s not raining. But, unfortunately, there is more to it. For at the same time as the rest of the world is having revolutions, spring planting and baseball games, those Canadians who venture outdoors, are playing hockey. But they’re not playing hockey with a ice and a puck. They’re playing hockey with pavement and a ball. Ball hockey interest peaks in the spring because all those boys and girls and their parents want to try out the moves they see on television, except for the hitting from behind and elbows to the head. So out they go onto the street, between televised games, just as the professional hockey season is winding down and many hockey players, in fact, are out on the golf course. This typically Canadian scene causes cars to be inconvenienced and the more fussy neighbours to be upset, leading in turn to another uniquely Canadian phenomenon — the complaint to city hall and the police raid on street

hockey nets. If you lived in Lusaka, Jakarta or Paris, you would not be aware of any of this. The streets of those cities are notable for their absence of hockey nets. In Canada, the police raids on outdoor hockey nets lead to letters to the editor, phone calls to talk radio shows and a lot of public hand-wringing generally. The rights of kids (and their parents) to have fun are weighed against the right of private property and a uniquely Canadian philosophical battle ensues. This will last until the real hockey season begins again and everybody goes back inside.

Hundreds of reasons why every child should go to camp Teaching Children to Win in Life

By Matt Barr of Camps Canada Why go to camp? Here’s a partial list of the many reasons:

• see positive adult role models in a fun environment

Every child should go to camp to:

• experience a community where everyone is welcome regardless of race, colour or religion

• make new friends (the number one outcome cited by children who attend camp)

• learn how to swim (many camps provide daily swimming opportunities)

• learn new social skills (communication, leader-ship, teamwork) • gain an appreciation of people’s different abilities (we are all gifted in some way or another) • experience the feelings of love, safety, and security • enjoy being a kid and clowning around • experience the freedom to make choices, decisions, and mistakes • do chores without being paid (kids help to clean up after lunch and to keep the camp area clean)

• turn off the television for a week (there are no TV’s at most camps) • to gain leadership skills (within a group of their peers) • experience many things for the first time

New location with gym

• build confidence in all the things they can do • feel comfortable being themselves (all personalities are encouraged and celebrated at camp)

LOCATIONS: Bells Corners Carling Place (formerly Nortel)

• learn to adjust to new environments, various social situations • gain a greater sense of personal satisfaction, self esteem, and leadership


• develop personal habits that lead to a healthy lifestyle 463306

discover and explore their interests, values and talents participate on teams take responsibility for others and help out increase their problem-solving skills meet a new circle of peers (outside of their school friends) create life-long friendships learn to adjust to new environments gain a greater sense of personal satisfaction and personal habits that lead to a healthy lifestyle • trust their own instincts and gain a sense of independence • have fun A camp experience is without equal. Even those campers who during the school year have behavioural problems, difficulty concentrating or who cannot relate well to their peers are highly successful. How is all of this accomplished in a recreational/educational setting that is overseen by a few camping professionals, but is administered for the most part by high school and university students. The answer is complex; however, the key to the success of camp is that all its efforts are focused on the individual and not on the program.

As part of a relatively small group they make friendships and establish bonds that will last a lifetime. The trust that is established allows them to take risks, experiment, challenge themselves and learn from these trials. Day to day they face a multitude of real life situations for which they find their own solutions or work closely with others to resolve them. They develop logical thinking. They assume various roles within the group based upon their strengths. They are better able to make choices for themselves that meet their needs and the needs of others. They become part of a community as they get caught up in the enthusiastic displays of spirit and singing that make camp distinct. Moreover, without realizing it they develop skills that relate directly to academic subjects such as geography, mathematics, kinesiology, meteorology, biology, natural sciences and languages. Their ability to communicate with their peers and their leaders is enhanced. They learn to accept and appreciate individual differences and are willing to reach out to assist others or allow themselves to be helped. Through challenging and creative activities they develop skills that will be useful as they cope with everyday life. From each experience they more self confident and develop

become an in-

Camp is a place where strengths are reinforced, where people recognize and accept that all of us have varying abilities and talents. In so doing, each participant can applaud the efforts of peers. Feeling that support, the young person is willing to attempt more complex and challenging activities without the fear of failure. In this environment the “poor student” has an opportunity for recognition and leadership that may otherwise be denied. Camp is for every child regardless of talent and ability. The American Camping Association (ACA) studies report that people who participate in camping and recreation experiences are healthier and have fewer problems as a result of their experiences. Similar findings would be expected for Canada. The largest research study of camper outcomes ever conducted in the United States asked over 5,000 families about positive identity and social skills acquired at camp:

CAMPERS SAY • Camp helped me make new friends. (96%) • Camp helped me get to know other campers who were different from me. (94%) • Camp helped me feel good about myself. (92%) • At camp, I did things I was afraid to do at first. (74%)

PARENTS SAY • My child gained self-confidence at camp. (70%) • My child remains in contact with friends made at camp. (69%) • My child continues to participate in activities learned at camp. (63%) Camps are uniquely positioned to provide all of these developmental needs for children. Consider camp as the perfect partner to family, school, and community youth activities in helping your child learn independence, decision-making, social and emotional skills, character building and values - all in an atmosphere of creativity and enrichment under the supervision of positive adult role models. continued on page 13


The program is the tool. The medium is the out of doors; the strategy is to earn the trust of the child in order to make the experience positive, non-threatening, creative and enjoyable. The camping community has long realized that when a child is placed in a trusting, nurturing environment devoid of the pressure to pass or fail and without competition, the motivation to learn is greatly increased. Each summer it is evident by the smiles on their faces, and the laughter we hear that campers are extremely happy in the camp environment. They learn to be self reliant, cooperative, understanding and sensitive.

creased self esteem which allows them to continue to reach out and look for more. All this in a fun-filled, stress free environment.


In today’s pressure-oriented society, camp provides a non-threatening environment for Canada’s youth to be active, to develop competence in life skills, to learn about and enhance their own abilities and to benefit from meaningful participation in a community designed just for them.

ADVICE FROM THE EXPERTS The camp experience is recognized by child development professionals as valuable in helping children mature socially, emotionally, intellectually, morally, and physically. “The building blocks of self-esteem are belonging, learning, and contributing,� says Michael Popkin, family therapist and founder of Active Parenting. “The biggest plus of camp is that camps help young people discover and explore their talents, interests, and values. Most schools don’t satisfy all these needs. Kids who have had these kinds of (camp) experiences end up being healthier and have less problems which concern us all.� “At camp, children learn to problem-solve, make social adjustments to new and different people, learn responsibility, and gain new skills to increase their self-esteem,� says author/education Peter Scales of The Search Institute. Noted experts in child development have expressed their thoughts on summer camp as a valuable resource for giving children the value of be-

longing to a community of their own. This critically important sense of community for children is rooted in enabling and empowering children to be belonging, cooperating, contributing, and caring citizens. “Each summer at camp a unique setting is created, a community is constructed that allows participants to get in touch with a sense of life that is larger than one’s self,� says Bruce Muchnick, licensed psychologist who works extensively with day and resident camps. “The camp community seeks to satisfy children’s basic need for connectedness, affiliation, belonging, acceptance, safety, and feelings of acceptance and appreciation.�

partners and not always the same ones. “They are encouraged to respect the differences between people. In an increasingly sarcastic, putdown oriented world, camps aim to be an oasis of personal safety where demeaning comments and disrespectful behavior are not tolerated, and children are taught responsible and positive ways to resolve conflicts.â€? • excerpts extracted from the American Camp Association website at:


“It is in the crucible of this community that children gain self-esteem with humility, overcome their inflated sense of self, and develop a lifelong sense of grace and wonder,� says Bob Differ, licensed clinical social worker specializing in child and adolescent treatment. “What makes camp a special community is its focus on celebrating effort,� says Michael Brandwein, speaker and consultant to the camp profession. “In this less pressured atmosphere, children learn more readily what positive things to say and do when they make mistakes and face challenges.� He says the traditions and customs of each different camp are like a secret code that allows those who know it to feel embraced by something unique and special. “Campers are urged to include, not exclude, others. They are praised for choosing new

Summer Fun & Camp Guide Summer 2011

Encourage learning all summer long (NC)—Don’t let summer fun interfere with your child’s learning. Research has shown that kids can lose much of what they learned during the school year during the summer months, a phenomenon known as “summer brain drain.” Parents don’t need to fret however; there are plenty of opportunities for children to keep their brains sharp and focused during the summer break. Here are some tips to help keep your children learning and their brain’s sharp during summer vacation.

hundreds of barriers to overcome. In addition to being an entertaining game, Perplexus is a great tool for cognitive development, encouraging children to exercise their problem–solving, motor and dexterity skills, as well as improving their hand–eye coordination. Perplexus is just as challenging for adults as it is for children and is for people aged 4–104, and so will help keep parents problem solving skills sharp as well.

Keep them problem–solving

It is widely accepted that there is a link between a healthy body and a healthy brain. Keeping your children’s bodies fit will help keep their brains fit and reduce summer brain drain. Physical activity can be either indoor or outdoor fun. One popular indoor and outdoor riding toy is the PlasmaCar by Plasmart Inc. The PlasmaCar is a mechanical marvel that can be driven on any flat surface and is powered solely by kid–power. The PlasmaCar is a fun way for kids to ride around the neighbourhood and keep their bodies fit as it requires no batteries or fuel, just the occasional cookie or two.

Math and problem–solving skills are the subjects experts say are more likely to be affected by brain drain. This doesn’t have to be the case however, as there are plenty of activities to make math and problem–solving fun. One game that has the attention of educators and parents alike is Perplexus by Plasmart Inc. Perplexus is a 3D maze game where players manoeuvre a small marble around challenging barriers inside a large–sized transparent sphere. Unlike traditional flat–surface mazes that are composed of one path, Perplexus challenges player’s problem solving abilities with numerous paths to choose from and

Keep them active

Tips to help stay sunburn free this summer (NC)—Growing up, you were taught to be safe. You wouldn’t cross the street without looking both ways, or ride in a car without your seatbelt. So don’t let your family head outside on a summer day without the proper protection. Help keep every member of your family safe with these protection essentials from the Banana Boat brand. • Hydration. Water is a crucial part of any outdoor activity. Make sure you pack enough water for every member of your family. The best time to hydrate is before you are thirsty. An extra glass of water 462355

with breakfast will help get you through the day. • Sun Protection. The sun’s rays are strongest between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM. Protect yourself appropriately. Reapply sunscreen every two hours and more often if you are swimming, sweating or if you have recently toweled off. • Clothing. Wear sun–protective clothing. Choose light weight material to help keep you cool outdoors. More summer safety tips can be found online at


Volunteers breathe new life into Mink Lake’s Camp Smitty BY KRISTA JOHNSTON For close to a century, the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa has welcomed thousands of children to the shores of Mink Lake to experience a summer they will never forget. Located just minutes from the village of Eganville – and just an hour from Scotiabank Place – Camp Smitty has become a place where children from across the province can form long-lasting friendships, gain new outdoor skills and learn a greater sense of independence. It is also a place where children, who couldn’t otherwise afford to spend their summer at camp, have the chance to experience the good life. With so much history embedded in its roots, the 28-acre property has seen its share of wear and tear, with many older buildings requiring significant upgrades and replacement. But thanks to the help of many dedicated volunteers, businesses and community groups, Camp Smitty has been graced with a number of new facilities, including six modern cabins, two winterized bathroom blocks and a 1,250 square-foot log home. “I went to Camp Smitty as a kid way back in 1980 and was a staff member there for a number of years,” says the camp’s director Tom Patrick. “Even back then, the cabins were rustic, but we were a nonprofit camp. Now, because of the community and the volunteers who have rallied around it, you can compare Camp Smitty to many of the private camps that are a lot more financially supported.” In the last 10 years, volunteer groups from Amsted Construction, Capital City Chorus, the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa, the Ottawa Senators Alumni and the Boys and Girls Club have come to the Mink Lake for annual work bees to breathe new life into Camp Smitty. Through their dedicated efforts, these volunteers have provided ongoing enhancements to the site, including beautiful finishes to the dining hall (including new flooring, insulation and a stone fireplace), a new maintenance shed, improvements to the senior staff cabin’s main floor (with a second floor added), the construction of two tree houses (which can sleep up to 10 people), a new gazebo and wrap-around decks for the children’s cabins. “There are a lot of projects going on,” says Patrick. “The kids are really excited about the camp cabins…because it will be a lot cooler and they will have decks where they can sit outside,” he explained. “With all of this work I think it sends the message that the community really cares.“ NEW LOG CABIN One of the largest undertakings for the club this year is the construction of a modernized pioneer-style log cabin situated on a beautiful isolated point of the property. With the site’s existing building now demolished and removed, the club and several generous sponsors are working steadily on this project, which will act as a major source of revenue for the club when it is rented out as a vacation home. “This new log cabin is going to be fan-

Cedar logs were removed from Camp Smitty’s 28-acre property by a team of horses. Volunteers worked steadily to peel, measure and cut the logs. By using horses, the camp was able to minimally impact the forest and only take logs that would be used for the vacation rental home.

This pioneer-style log home is now being built on the shoreline of Camp Smitty on Mink Lake. Once complete, the vacation home will be used to generate annual income for the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa, who subsidize children from the Ottawa area who attend their summer camp. tastic and it will generate revenue that will all go back to the camp,” Patrick says. “We’re relying on volunteers, but the hope is that it will be completed by this fall. It will take (about) three to four years to recoup the costs of the log cabin construction, but from there on in, it’s money being generated that will help us subsidize campers and do upkeep on the

Children who attend Camp Smitty this year will see six new sleeper cabins, three in the girl’s area and three in the boys. buildings in the coming years.” Over the course of last winter, white cedar logs were removed from the camp’s property by a team of horses with minimal impact to the surrounding forest. Now, workers from Kealey and Tackaberry Log Homes Ltd. are working to complete the shell of the log home that will soon feature radiant-floor heating, a stone fireplace (inside and out), granite countertops, an upstairs loft and wraparound deck. “The building was grandfathered. You would never be able to put a cottage that close to the water anymore,” says Paul

Kealey, whose company is donating the log home at a 65-per-cent discount. “It’s going to be a modern focal point of the camp…that will help them develop as a club, bring more income in and as a result, bring more opportunities to kids.” There are many businesses that have partnered with the Boys and Girls Club on the log-home project by providing donations and volunteer time. The partners include Doyle Homes, Deslaurier Kitchens, Marlboro Window and Doors, Astro Kitchen and Design, Faught Electric and Zito Plumbing.
