Plan for a safe camp experience

Pack sunscreen, water, insect repellent, proper clothes and equipment JA N E T W E R S T

Y

ou’ve done your research and have found a safe, appropriate, fun camp for your children. Find out what you can do as a parent each day when you drop them off. It’s the little things and planning that will make it an enjoyable and safe summer for everyone. Parents don’t get a vacation from safety. Keep these tips in mind so that safety stays a top priority this summer while your children are at camp: • Put sunscreen on in the morning before you drop the kids off. Ideally sunscreen should be put on 30 minutes before you go outside. This is recommended even if it is a cloudy day. Cloud cover does not stop the sun’s harmful rays. • Remind camp staff to reapply sunscreen later in the day. Use a minimum of SPF 15 or higher depending on your child’s skin tone. Provide your own sunscreen with your child’s name on it. • If your child burns easily, cover them in light colored, cotton clothing; have them wear a hat and sunglasses. • Pack a water bottle (filled with water). Staying hydrated at our elevation is extremely important and little bodies use up water at a faster rate as they work and play hard. Avoid caffeinated drinks as they dehydrate kids more quickly. A child’s body temperature rises three times faster than an adult, so insist on frequent rest breaks in the shade and lots of water. • Make sure your child is wearing appropriate footwear. Flip-flops are not a good option if they are going to be physically active. Closedtoed shoes will help lessen any injuries for a variety of activities. • If they will be playing on playground equipment, remove hood and neck drawstrings from their clothing 8 | RMPARENT

as they pose a choking hazard. • If your child is not a good swimmer, insist he wear a life jacket when near water (pool, lake, river, etc.) or when participating in water sports. Most people who drown had no intention of actually getting in the water. Drowning happens silently. Enroll your child in swim lessons as early as age 4 (recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics). • If your child will be riding a bike at camp, make sure she has a bicycle helmet that is fitted to her head and that she wear it! If she will be taking her own bike, make sure it is in good condition. • Going hiking? Avoid using scented soaps or perfumes and apply insect repellent with DEET, which is most effective against ticks and mosquitoes. The benefits of DEET reach a peak at a concentration of 30 percent, the maximum concentration currently recommended for infants and children. You should not use DEET on children under 2 months of age.

| Youth Program & Activity GUIDE

• If the camp will be taking field trips, find out if you need to provide a car seat or booster seat and make sure the staff knows how to install it. • Teach your child to know what is safe and unsafe. As a parent, you cannot always be around to protect him. Equipping him with safe teachings and the confidence to know when something isn’t safe is a best practice. You can obtain more information about how to teach your child about personal safety at www.fcgov.com/police/pdf/ childsafe.pdf. It’s the little things that can make a big difference between a summer filled with fun memories or one that includes a trip or two to the emergency room or doctor’s office.

A healthy balance By Kim Sharpe

Mix it this summer with structured activities and free time

A

ny parent can tell you that raising children to be healthy, well-adjusted adults is hard work. It requires planning, intentionality, strategizing, and a lot of prayer, sweat and tears. Another component of being well rounded is exposure to a variety of experiences. But that doesn’t mean signing your kid up for a multitude of camps and activities will achieve the outcome of balance. It could have the opposite effect. Having too little time to explore the world—or their little piece of it—on their own is just as damaging as not being able to try a new sport or learn how to play an instrument. “Do not underestimate the power of unstructured play,” says Susan Stiffelman, MFT, an educational therapist and author of Parenting Without Power Struggles. “Playing catch in the yard, dancing in the living room, and chasing after lightning bugs provide opportunities for intellectual, physical and personal development.” Stiffelman also 12 | RMPARENT

recommends that parents take up a new hobby. “Allowing your child to see you trying something new may inspire her to do the same.” Be a good sport Sports provide physical activity that helps young bodies grow strong. And the competitive aspect of sports can teach children how to persevere, an important transferable life skill. Another trait sports can impart is good character, which goes beyond good sportsmanship. “Youth sports are a perfect environment for teaching and modeling good character which is the foundation for all lasting success,” says Bob Powell, a Character First training specialist. “Our youth need to internalize the connection between good character and competence and skills, and learn to apply them in their future careers and relationships.” Powell was one of many community leaders who helped establish a northern Colorado nonprofit organization

| Youth Program & Activity GUIDE

dedicated to ensuring sports fields are character-building fields. CHAMP, which stands for “Character in Athletics—Make it a Priority,” works with coaches, parents and youth athletes to deliver character-based athletic experiences. CHAMP also regularly recognizes and rewards student athletes, coaches and teams for demonstrated character excellence. The organization’s website, www.champfc.org, provides more information and describes how people can get involved. Smarts through the arts The arts—visual and musical – often are at the top of the chopping-block list when education budgets get squeezed. This is unfortunate, because like reading, writing and arithmetic, the arts help kids experience their world in other dimensions. “There is much factual information about why art is important in our children’s development that is both interest-

ing and helpful to know,” says MaryAnn Faubion Kohl, award-winning author, publisher and educator. “Creating art expands a child’s ability to interact with the world around her, and provides a new set of skills for self-expression and communication. Not only does art help to develop the right side of the brain, it also cultivates important skills that benefit a child’s development. But art goes far beyond the tangible statistics measured by studies – it can become a pivotal mode of uninhibited self-expression and amazement for a child. Art matters the same way language matters—or the way breathing matters! It is a fundamental component of what makes us uniquely human.” Music and rhythm also are innate components of our humanity. Whether one can play an instrument or simply enjoys listening to others do so, music provides connectivity between people. The ancient Greek philosopher Plato said, “Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.” “Music and dance are cultural touchstones…key elements in biding us together,” says Ken Lonnquist, professional musician, singer and songwriter who’s performed in several northern Colorado venues and K-12 schools throughout the years. “When I give a live performance, I see people, almost in spite of themselves, connecting to others. It’s a communal experience that can’t be substituted with an iPod or YouTube. There’s nothing like flesh and blood and a heart beating with a community of people in a common experience. And music has the power to open a child’s imagination. It’s a door through which learning can occur; straight forward education can’t always do that.” Music and other live performances, such as plays, also can teach children acceptable social norms. How one behaves in a theater is very different than how one behaves on a playground. Lonnquist says, “Kids need to be able to learn the art of being still and tuning into a story, whether it’s a story through music or a play.”

ploring the backyard to visiting other countries, adventures teach many important life lessons and skills. Tami Anderson Englehorn, owner/ founder of Emergence: Counseling, Coaching and Consulting, and Loveland mom of two sons, says, “I think adventures accomplish a multitude of things for kids and families! They build confidence (‘Oh, I can hike eight miles!’), create space for connection (no media distractions, usually), create shared memories and expand a sense of the world. In my work as a therapist and on a university campus, when I ask young adults what they recall about growing up, many of their

most fond memories have to do with family vacations or time spent together. It says a lot to a child for a parent or significant adult to take time away from the normal grind of daily life to be with and focus on a child. It says to them, ‘You are worth more to me than anything else in this moment.’” One Fort Collins family is taking an adventure of the extreme kind. The Bordens have moved their clan of seven to Nicara-


Youth Program & Activity GUIDE

gua to live for the next several months. Diane Borden explained why they resorted to what may seem like a drastic measure to experience an adventure and what her family hopes to gain from it: “Our lives were so fun, but full and hurried in Fort Collins, and so prescripted and fragmented...our commitments were driving our lives. We longed for opportunity to engage the world and also engage each other more fully. With our oldest son in 11th grade, we knew we were running out of time to do it as a whole family. “We thought a lot about schooling options; we wanted the world to be our classroom…So we are taking the semester off from traditional school. We are all going to ‘Spanish School’ as a family to work on our language barrier, but otherwise we are doing what we’ve begun to call ‘live’ learning—learning by doing and engaging the world right outside our doorstep. From shopping for groceries in the local ‘mercado’ to volunteering with local organizations to paint schools, install latrines and lay piping to bring running water to a community

for the very first time, we are learning so many lessons!” Helping ourselves by helping others As the Bordens attest, volunteering to help others in formal or informal ways has many benefits. Like music, it’s a way to meet and connect with people. It also is a way to build communication, relationship and job skills, plus boost self-confidence and emotional happiness. America’s Promise, a national partnership dedicated to improving the lives of children and youth, asserts that “all children and youth need and deserve the chance to make a difference—in their families, schools, communities, nation and world—through having models of caring behavior, awareness of the needs of others, a sense of personal responsibility to contribute to the larger society, and opportunities for volunteering, leadership and service.” Another national nonprofit, www. HelpGuide.org, says, “While it might be a challenge to coordinate everyone’s schedules, volunteering as a family has

many worthwhile benefits. Children watch everything you do. By giving back to the community, you show them firsthand how volunteering makes a difference and how good it feels to help others and enact change. It’s also a valuable way for you to get to know organizations in the community and find resources and activities for your children and family.” Hugs and love The secret to raising well-rounded kids requires providing a healthy balance of structured activities, new activities and no activities—space to just be. And once a child discovers something they are good at or interested in, they should be encouraged to keep at it or to learn more. Succeeding at a task goes a long way toward becoming a stable individual. It also teaches kids they can reach the goals they set for themselves. But perhaps the most important components of raising well-adjusted kids are love and lots of hugs. Dole out both in large quantities daily.

Natures Own: The S.T.E.M. Store M

ake your way to Nature’s Own for community & global connections, beautiful art, and educational projects. Nature’s Own stores are located in Old Town Fort Collins, Estes Park and Nederland. The store has everything from geodes to stuffed animals, to science kits that will make you think.

Think Global, Stay Local.

Natures Own has sought ways to advocate for the health of the environment. Over the past several years, they have teamed up with several non-profits, both national and international, including Idea Wild, Center for Biological Diversity, Rainforest Action Network, Global Response and several others. Natures Own makes significant financial contributions to these organizations and more. Within the stores is a combination of locally-made goods, as well as items from around the globe. Many Colorado artist contribute to the eclectic jewelry collection, the rocks, and art. You can also find onyx, instruments, and other items from around the world.

STEM Projects

Science. Technology. Engineering. Mathematics. Nature’s Own has recently become the local outlet for STEM Project kits. Peruse a collection of fun and challenging projects, for everyone preschool age and up. The store offers discounts to educators and schools. These projects are a great way to add interest to school subjects. Home-schooled students should be sure to explore them as well. First check out the popular snap circuit kits. They come with several different ideas and projects. You could make an AM radio, a motion detector, hear your voice on the radio or prove that sound waves travel on a paper surface. Hook up your iPhone for other projects, and record data you find. Next check out the Green Science Kits. Eco Science Toys is a popular kit. It provides great ideas on how to use common house-hold goods for fun science projects. Make a speed racer with old CDs and a tissue roll, create a tornado inside empty plastic bottles, construct a gravity-powered walking

robot with a soda can, and more. Or purchase the Enviro Shopping Bag kit and decorate your own bag to take with you to the grocery store. Other environmental kits include the recycled bottle light and the dynamo torch. The solar kits are super cool. Build a solar rover or miniature working models of a solar oven and solar water heater. And afterwards, you’ll have a greater understanding of solar thermal energy. If you are not sure what exactly you’d like to learn about, come into the store. The helpful staff will make sure you leave with the perfect project. You may build a volcano, re-create the solar system in your living room, or perform ten fun experiments and games with ordinary magnets. Be sure to keep your eyes open for science nights at your local Natures Own. These fun-filled evenings will give you the opportunity to check out the kits and ask questions. For more information, go to Nature’s Own’s website: www.NaturesOwn.com.
