RESTON ASSOCIATION ACTIVITIES GUIDE


INSIDE 05 LETTER FROM THE RA CEO In recent years, Reston Association members have provided us with thoughtful feedback about Reston magazine. Some folks offered specific story ideas, while others provided general comments about the association’s flagship publication as a whole. While the quarterly magazine was lauded for its design and informative lifestyle content, a noticeable number of members believed producing the high-quality, comprehensive magazine was too much of a drain on RA staff time and financial resources. That feedback from members led our communications team to explore ways to condense the magazine content into a leaner, more simplified format. Today, we are introducing the inaugural issue of RA’s activity guide, which replaces Reston magazine with a cost-efficient publication that focuses exclusively on RA events, programs and activities. This guide is approximately half the number of pages of the former magazine, is printed on environmentally friendly paper and is supported in part by paid advertising. It is also available online in a format that is intuitive and easy to read and navigate. Our decision to discontinue Reston magazine wasn’t an easy one. Because the back section of the former magazine was where many members and non-members went to check out various offerings for RA swim lessons, camps and other programs, we wanted to make sure any replacement publication would continue to provide that essential information to residents on a platform with which they were comfortable. Studies showed that the majority of people who signed up for RA recreational activities used the magazine to peruse listings about swimming and tennis lessons, summer camps, events and more. After reviewing the recreational summaries in the magazine, residents and non-residents often went to our online registration site, WebTrac, to make their purchases. This activities guide preserves all the program information that would typically go into Reston magazine. In this streamlined publication, you will also find a quarterly feature article highlighting the latest recreational activities. In this first issue, you can read all about our newest camp offerings for 2020. We are confident your children will enjoy these or any of our many other Reston camps referenced in this guide. In addition to the printed version, this guide is also uploaded to the Issuu.com website, which is where many national and international magazines, catalogs and other publications are hosted. A link to the digital version of RA’s activities guide is available on the RA website at www.reston.org. In the future, we expect the online edition to have various interactive and multi-media features such as video content and clickable links that will take you directly to our WebTrac system. We hope you find both the online and printed versions of the new RA activities guide useful. As always, we welcome your feedback and will continue to look for opportunities to make all our communications materials more accessible, environmentally friendly and cost efficient.

COVER STORY

Reston Association Offers New Exciting Camps for Summer BY JESSICA BIGGER

R

eston Association is offering four new camps next summer. Plus, the camp staff has made some changes to existing camps. Here’s what’s new.

Watercraft Camp This is a new camp offered to 11- to 15-year-olds. Kids will spend time boating on RA’s lakes. There will be lots of water-related activities, like kayak races. It’s a chance for campers to get familiar with open bodies of water, learn about water safety, work in teams and be responsible around water. It’s also a time for kids to put down their phones and be one with nature, build friendships and just have fun. Campers will be able to kayak, canoe and possibly use stand-up paddle boards.

6

Young Naturalist

Adventure Camp

Aquatics Camp

Young Naturalists is an extension of Walker Nature Center’s nature camps. “Many of the kids who grew up with Nature Tots and Walker’s Rangers were sad that they were aging out of our center’s camp programs. Their parents really wanted them to come back to this great location and continue their relationship with naturalist staff,” said Nature Center Manager Katie Shaw. So, this summer 10- to 12-year-olds will have the opportunity to hone their naturalist skills in a small group setting. There will be extended hikes, special labs and citizen science projects. “Young Nats” will be a grand slam for future Jane Goodall and John Muir types.

This is not your traditional teen camp. Teens ages 12-15 will go on a new adventure each day. “There will be no time for cell phones, as these campers will be always on an adventure,” said Katherine Caffrey, Recreation Supervisor. Campers may spend one day rock climbing, another at a ropes course and a day exploring local caverns. Please note that RA will still be offering the Traditional Teen Camp, which will continue to include a field trip to an amusement park. This activity will not be part of the Adventure Camp. In addition, 15-year-olds will now be able to join the fun.

Aquatics camp is for kids ages 8-12. Swim lessons will be offered throughout the week, in addition to traditional camp activities. Swimmers will be grouped by age and/or skill set.

RESTON ASSOCIATION ACTIVITIES GUIDE

Updates to Existing Camps After listening to many parent suggestions, RA recreation staff have made several changes to some existing camps. See what’s changed.


Sportsters

Junior Day Camp

Instead of a two-week camp, Sportsters will now be offered as a one-week camp. This gives campers a chance to really focus on learning a specific sport during that week and building their skills.

Many parents wanted RA to extend the Junior Day Camp through the end of summer. Well, RA listened. There will be an additional session of Junior Day Camp the week before school starts. Check out all the camps RA is offering this summer. See the camp section for details.

Junior Lifeguard Camp Due to the popularity of this camp, RA has decided to increase the number of weeks available for next summer.

Camp on Wheels The recreation staff have expanded the number of weeks this camp is offered. Three of the weeks will focus on skateboarding, and the other three weeks will be for those who love riding bikes. The change will give campers a chance to really hone their skills.

Our job is to make it as easy as possible for you to find a great volunteer opportunity in Reston. Volunteer Reston has many opportunities, and some can be found throughout the program guide; just look for the VR symbol.

CUSTOM CORPORATE DAY OF SERVICE We love working with our corporate partners to create days of service that are meaningful and fun for companies. Volunteer Reston coordinates customized days of service for corporate teams year-round. Your investment will directly return to the companies in increased employee satisfaction, productivity and engagement. This is a unique teambuilding opportunity for your employees and clients to make an impact in Reston. We provide the project, training and tools; companies provide the team. This is a great opportunity for engaging clients, employees and their family members.

FINANCIAL COMMITMENT As committed members of our business community, your support is vital to helping Reston Association provide a nurturing environment for our

residents to Live, Work, Play and Get Involved. Custom Corporate Projects start at $500 for the production and supplies of a custom half day of service engaging up to 25 employees. Sponsorship levels vary depending on group size and projects. In addition to a high-impact day of service and team-building, your company will receive valuable brand recognition through a diverse stream of marketing and promotion channels. Your projects and funds will go through the Friends of Reston (FOR), a 501c3 supporting organization established in 1999 to support RA in bringing valuable projects to the community. FOR supports Reston Association (RA) in preserving and enhancing Reston to the benefit of the community. The Friends group allows the association to tap into other resources to bring great community projects to fruition on our land, at our facilities and within our programs. Volunteer Reston is largely supported by volunteers, corporate partners and donations. We make it easy for companies to volunteer by managing the process from A to Z. Donations and contributions go toward plants, tools, supplies, recycling bins, pet water fountain and camp scholarships for kids. We would love to design a special day of service customized specifically to meet your company goals! To learn more about the how your company can engage with Volunteer Reston, contact Ha Brock, Volunteer Reston Manager, ha@reston.org or 703-435-7986.
