Full STEAM Ahead with Rec&Ed What is STEAM?

NEW!

In Ann Arbor and across the nation, schools are focusing on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math). Rec&Ed summer camps are the perfect environments for your child to explore STEAM concepts in a fun, relaxed setting. Our camps allow plenty of time for asking questions, experimenting and making new friends.

Engage + Enrich: Our new STEAM Summer Camps Offering14 new innovative camps in cooperation with these local organizations: • Ann Arbor Hands On Museum • Mad Science • Bricks 4 Kidz • Mathnasium • Rudolf Steiner Health Center

Welcome to Rec&Ed’s Summer Camps 2014! The Ann Arbor Public Schools Community Education and Recreation Department is committed to enhancing the overall well‑being of children who attend our summer camps. We believe that a quality experience depends on continuity, planning, and children having a sense of belonging to the group. To that end, we strive to provide: • A safe, healthy, dependable environment. • A capable, sensitive, caring and energetic staff who understand children’s needs. • Well-organized, age appropriate activities and games, with materials in good condition for recreation and skill acquisition. • Comfortable environment for informal learning of new skills. • An extension of opportunities already provided by the school community for children of different ages, cultures and ethnic groups to live and learn together.

Green Adventures Camp (GAC)

Stewardship Camp

Grades 1-5. MondayThursday mornings campers have a small group experience led by ex‑ emplary AAPS teachers. Friday mornings are set aside for spe‑ cial interactive hands on proj‑ ects based at the site. Unique to this camp, students synthe‑ size their afternoon experi‑ ence through writing, scientific inquiry and problem solving, extending their learning and re‑ ducing typical learning losses that can occur over the summer.

Grades 6-8. Building on the success of our award-win‑ ning Green Adventures Camp (GAC) Rec&Ed is pleased to offer 8 weeks of Stewardship program for middle school students (rising 6th through rising 8th graders). For our middle school stewards, we’ve expanded the GAC curriculum, adding a leadership component and fostering leadership skills in supportive small groups. Certified teachers and naturalists, using the GAC model of dynamic academics in the morning and field experiences in the afternoons, lead the middle school campers. Offered in the same location as Green Adventures Camp, all 8 weeks of engaging science, literacy, art, community service, team building, and environmental education are now available to Stewardship campers. Steward‑ ship campers explore Green Adventures weekly themes in more depth, using tools and methods geared specifically to‑ wards the middle school age group. They will spend more time involved in community service activities. These themes parallel GAC themes found on page 7.

The classroom is outdoors in the afternoon... the sky is the limit! In the afternoons, Naturalists Dave Szczygiel, John Stah‑ ly, Jane Hayes and Jonathan Gilles lead campers in explorations of a variety of natural areas that provide a theme and context for the morning math and language arts lessons. Each Friday af‑ ternoon all campers have fun swimming at a local public pool. WEEK

Throughout the summer, campers enjoy cooking, farming, raising chickens, tending hives and spinning honey. Swimming every Friday!

Fabulous architects come in all shapes and sizes. Animals and insects build homes, traps, and colonies and this week is all about exploring many constructions. These webs, nests, and tun‑ nels hold single occupants, families or thousands of creatures, eggs, and food plus they have dozens of other uses. Come join in as you learn from these fascinating structures and try out some of their builders’ techniques. No camp July 4th.

What does a mushroom have to do with our air quality? Why are ospreys worth protecting? What is a wind farm and how does that impact the power we need to live? Why create rain gardens? How is planting a butterfly garden important to our part of the planet? These questions and more frame this amazing week of investigating our local ecosystem.

Every year, Americans throw away enough paper and plastic cups, forks, and spoons to circle the equator 300 times. Green Adventure campers explore how to more effectively implement the 3 R’s: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Become better stewards of the stuff you use and the land you live on. This week includes trips to recycle alley (resale shops on South Industrial Highway), the always-popular “Take Apart” day and our annual trip to the Ann Arbor Materials Recovery Facility.

Safety Town! Safety Town Questions? Call 734-994-2300, ext. 53106 Do you have a child ready to start Kindergarten or First grade in the fall? Then enroll your child in Safety Town, a popular education program offered each summer. Your child learns safety awareness in a fun and entertaining way using a child-size mock Ann Arbor “town” explored on bikes. Guest speakers include:

“Buster the Bus”, AAPS’ own talking school bus Police officers • Firefighters • Healthcare workers Goal: to help kids evaluate “safe” from “unsafe” when confronted with potentially dangerous situations. The curriculum covers bike helmets and booster seats, stranger danger, fire safety, riding a school bus, pedestrian safety and additional topics. Songs, games, stories and art projects reinforce the les‑ sons. The 2014 program is sponsored by Ann Arbor Public Schools Community Education & Recreation Department in cooperation with the Ann Arbor Police Department and many community partners. Students can be placed with friends as long as registration forms are submitted together and a special request is listed on the forms. In most cases we are able to place children with others attending their school. • Scholarships are available for those who financially qualify. • The last day of the session is a graduation ceremony. Parents are invited to attend the brief ceremony, after which children are dismissed at approximately 10:30 AM. • Once enrolled in Safety Town you will receive a separate email with consent and emergency forms to be completed prior to the start of the program. • Participants are dismissed immediately following graduation on Friday (approximately 10:30 AM)

Key Information • Held at Bryant Elementary School 2150 Santa Rosa 48108 • For children entering Kindergarten or First grade in Fall 2014. • All participants receive a FREE T-shirt. • We are aware of 3 incidents where Safety Town training helped save the lives of past participants

Safety Town & Camp Combination is also available which provides a wrap-around program Monday-Friday from 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM. It used to take me several minutes of imploring, requesting, cajoling toget my 4 year old to put her seat belt on by herself. But after just two days at Safety Town, on the third day, she was the first one to buckle up on saying ‘Mommy, don't drive. I don't have seat belt on. It is not safe'. She still says that everytime we go out in the car. I highly recommend Safety Town to all parents of future kindergarteners.” 2013 Parent Testimonial

MEET THE CAMP LEADERS! For 18 years, Eileen has provided a variety of enriching and fun camps for children and adolescents through AAPS Rec&Ed. Many of her camps, such as Writing Camps and the Harry Potter theme camp, are perennial favorites. But Eileen never rests in finding new themes and curricula that work in a summer camp setting. New camps this year are Constitution, Art Like an Egyptian and Dojo Training. Eileen brings her many years of experience as an elementary art teacher to her camps. A graduate of Eastern Michigan University, she holds endorsements in both language arts and fine art. Teaching is her passion and it shows as she engages children through story telling, critical thinking exercises and dramatic play. Eileen enjoys working with her family; her sons Christopher and Daniel help administer the camps. Daniel is an award winning poet, and a former member of The Ann Arbor Youth Poetry Slam Team. He is a published writer, and regularly performs with Ann Arbor Wordworks, a local collegiate poetry troupe. Chris is an avid chess player, whose passion for the game began at the tender age of eight. He was taught the game by his grandfather who is a certified chess master in Japan. He constantly seeks opponents of greater skill than his own and passes this love of strategy and competition on to his students. REGISTER AT WWW.AARECED.COM

Rec&Ed 2014 SUMMER CAMPS 41


Summer Camps 2014 Parent Information Entering/Rising Throughout this catalog the grades listed are for children who are entering the indicated grade this fall (2014/2015). Safety Town Program and Safety Town Camp are for children entering Kindergarten or first grade this fall, 2014. Register Early, Save Money Register by April 20 and pay the Early Bird fee. You will receive significant savings on each week of camp. Multi-Week Discount Enroll‑ ing any child in 4 or more weeks of full day summer camps in one transaction saves 10% off the total cost. Eligible camps have an asterisk in the Table of Contents (page 3). You will not receive a discount if you enroll the same child in these camps in separate transactions. Safety First A parent or guard‑ ian of preschool and elemen‑ tary aged children must accom‑ pany the chìld(ren) into camp every day and sign in the child. At the end of each day, the par‑ ent or guardian must come into the building to pick up the child and sign out the child(ren). If you are sending a relative or friend to pick up your child, please provide a written note giving that person permission. Dress Appropriately Make sure your child is dressed for com‑ fort, safety and appropriate temperatures. Avoid dark colored jeans and t-shirts on a hot day, as well as clothing with strings attached that may get caught on play equipment. Shoes are a challenge, too. Most camps go outside every day so tennis shoes are the best option. Sun Screen We recommend putting sunscreen on your child before your child comes to camp. Campers play outside almost every day. Supplies to Pack These may include food and/or snacks, water bottles and sunscreen. Make sure that any clothes, backpack and other items your child brings are okay to gets wet, soiled or ripped. Label all clothes and supplies with your child's name using a permanent marker. Medications If your child must take a medication during the camp day, the Ann Arbor Public Schools medication policy states that the on-site administration of any medication re‑ quires written authorization on flle. The authorization must be signed by both a physician and a parent, whether the medica‑ tion is prescribed or over-the-counter. All medications must be in their original containers and clearly labeled.

42 Rec&Ed 2014 SUMMER CAMPS

Allergies If your child has an allergy action plan, please let us know at least four weeks in advance of your child's participa‑ tion in the camp. Call 734-994-2298 or 734-994-2300 ext. 53219. Camps follow the district policy governing use of Epi-pens for allergic reactions. It is the parent's responsibility to com‑ municate any special concerns to the Camp Coordinator and to provide any necessary training to camp staff. We require at least two weeks notice for staff to be trained in the use of the Epi-pen. Special Accommodations Rec&Ed makes every effort to provide reasonable accommo‑ dations for children with spe‑ cial needs. Staff needs to talk to parents at least four weeks in advance of the camp start day to be able to accomplish this. Please call 734-994-2300, ext. 53219 at least four weeks in advance to talk through your child's situation. “Nut Aware” Schools lf you receive a message or see a sign indicating that a building or area in a building is "nut aware" please respect that rule when you send food with your child. Please do not send food containing nuts or manufactured at facilities that produce nut products. Staff will follow the Ann Arbor Nut Aware SACC Snack and Nutrition policy. Lunches and Snacks Packed lunches at camp are often kept at room temperature for 4-6 hours. There are several ways to keep a packed lunch safe to eat. Choose foods that may safely be kept at room temperature. Select and handle food carefully to prevent food poisoning. Insulated, soft-sided lunch boxes or bags are best for keeping food cold, but pack at least two ice sources with perishable food any type of lunch bag or box you use. All our camps are “nut aware”. Trained Staff Make the Difference Staff receive ongoing train‑ ing in the areas of child development, quality environment, programming, behavior management, health and safety. Each camp has at least one staff member who is CPR and First-aid certified. T-shirts Some of our camps provide a t-shirt for each camper. Please indicate the t-shirt size of your child on the registration form. You will be required to complete this information if you register online.
