From the Leisure & Learning Director

We are very excited to announce our 2016 summer camp season! At RCC, our programming staff is constantly monitoring enrollment and demand. We saw the camps you wanted last summer so this year we have added in more sessions of our top-rated camps, including: Rock Climbing, Adventures in Movie Making, Tech Savvy Girls and Paintball. If you have a Boy Scout or Girl Scout in your home who wants to earn badges, we have developed specialty camps to meet this need. Science and technology programming continues to be the rage and we have included several new offerings ranging from Minecraft-inspired Lego camps to a full-fledged STEAM camp led by a talented FCPS teacher whose elementary school was recently named one of only ten “Green Schools” in the nation! We have also extended the summer camp season to help bridge the gap between August and the start of school. Check out our new Fun Fusion camp that is designed as a traditional camp program with a variety of fun and enriching activities for elementary-age children.

P.S. Please see pages 28 – 29 for our complete camp offerings matrix. This tool was developed to help parents plan their children’s camp schedule.

Eureka! Invention Camp

Forensic Fundamentals

Geocaching

This camp is designed by campers – the inventors. Campers will be given a series of challenges which must be overcome using basic materials, simple machines, tips from worldfamous inventors and the most important thing of all – their minds. With a little bit of ingenuity, participants will construct catapults and forts, and then lay siege, fabricate a winning Egg Drop design, play with a dancing robot and assemble a working light saber to take home. While Thomas Edison said invention is 10 percent inspiration, and 90 percent perspiration; this camp is 100 percent fun.

Campers will be introduced to life in the form of cells and organs, and will be able to use the knowledge of their own bodies to solve crimes. Participants will discover the secrets behind batteries, and design marshmallow molecules. They will conduct electricity as well as power a whirligig. Campers will also experience blood pumping through the heart, and air moving through the lungs. The use of ooey-gooey ingredients will be used to build a model cell where campers will use their own traits to decode and decipher their DNA.

Geocaching, an elaborate and fun-filled outdoor treasure hunt, is all the rage. With the use of a GPS system, campers will search for trinkets and small surprises at local, established geocaching sites. Most sites will be less than one mile from RCC. Geocaching is challenging, and there is no guarantee that campers will find something every day, but part of the fun is in the search. Campers will receive their own logbooks to keep track of their successes. Participants should bring a filled water bottle, wear comfortable clothing, sturdy shoes, and apply sunscreen prior to coming to camp.
