Performing Arts Camp Offers Surprising Life Lessons W

involved in a performing arts program often requires an ensemble or collaboration with others, teaching students valuable lessons in teamwork that will serve them throughout their lives.

hile attending a performing arts summer camp can be incredibly fun and exciting for your youngster, arts programs also provide some remarkable hidden gems. Many of the lessons provided translate into lifelong skills that will enrich kids’ lives well into adulthood. Studies have shown that participating in an arts program creates a feeling of collaboration, support and connection between students. This unique platform creates a safe haven for children to develop, even assisting students with different learning styles or kids who might slip through the cracks. Here are a few life lessons your child can learn through participating in an arts program.

Creativity

Programs allow students a chance to develop their imagination and view situations through a different lens. Developing improvisation skills help children learn to evaluate unfamiliar situations, see different perspectives and trust in themselves and their abilities. Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.”

Growing Through Constructive Criticism & Emotional Release

Confidence

Through expressing themselves through rehearsals and performance, students discover their own voice, grow in self-confidence and learn to take risks which will serve them in adulthood.

Improved Academic Performance & Teamwork

Performing arts education encourages experimentation and strengthens problem-solving and critical-thinking skills. The experience of making decisions and choices develops a positive correlation between art and other academic achievements, such as reading and math. A report by Americans for the Arts states that young people who participate regularly in the arts are more likely to be recognized for academic achievement, to participate in a math and science fair, or to win an award for writing an essay or poem than children who do not participate. In addition, music stimulates the parts of the brain associated with academic achievement and emotional development. Being

Kids learn essential life skills by giving and receiving constructive criticism and praise to their peers, which builds self-respect and respect for others. Theater exercises provide a safe place for children to express their feelings, which allows them to learn to release difficult emotions such as anger, in a constructive context. So when your child is beaming with pride during their next stage performance, know that the lessons they learned in a fun performing arts camp will help them put their best foot forward in all areas of their life. _______________________________________________________________________ For 40 years, Mary Jo's Performing Arts Academy (MJPAA) has been a leader in the Tampa bay area specializing in Dance, Acting, Voice and Music Education.

Dr. Cannabis D

r. Michael LoGuidice Sr., D.O., MBA, FACOEP, has always been part of the fight against the opioid crisis in America. He stated, “I got into the addiction field in 2009 to help patients get off dangerous opioid medications. The biggest positive impact to the opioid crisis in recent years was the publishing of the E-Force Database which exposed doctors, clinics and hospitals that were abusing the prescription of opioids to patients all over the country. The second most beneficial impact in helping patients to get off of opioids is the use of medical cannabis.” “My mission is to get the word out so medical cannabis will become more mainstream, shaking off the stigma it has seen in the past. At last the leadership of our country has seen the health benefit it can bring to patients,” said Dr. LoGuidice. He opened the veteran owned Dr. Cannabis Clinic & Wellness Center – East in September of 2017, and has just opened a second location in Lutz this month. He pointed out, “I deal with many anxiety ridden patients and I’ve been able to help them get off a lot of their medications, including very addictive substances such as Xanax. Using CBD & low THC instead also helps remove the potential for deadly overdoses as seen in patients who mix Xanax with alcohol.” “I have a 75 year old Parkinson’s disease patient who had to rely on his daughter to drive up from Miami every week to do his errands and grocery shopping. Using CBD and low THC, he is now able to drive again,” Dr. LoGuidice noted. “One of my patients has Multiple Sclerosis and had debilitating spasms. She began using CBD and low THC and is now able to relax and enjoy her life again,” he added. At the Dr. Cannabis Clinic & Wellness Center, Board Certified Physicians have treated thousands of patients over the years for their chronic medical conditions. They share in their patient's frustrations with the limitations of narcotics for controlling pain as well as the addiction associated with their usage. “We are devoted to the evaluation, certification, and treatment of qualified patients who meet the State of Florida legal requirements for receiving medical cannabis. Medical Marijuana offers a great alternative to managing pain and enables patients to have their lives back,” Dr. LoGuidice remarked. _______________________________________________________________________________________________ Dr. Cannabis Clinic & Wellness Center offers a discount for all veterans.

Wesley Chapel Girl

ver since 10 year old Lexi Zink can remember, she’s wanted to become an Eagle Scout. In 2018, for the first time in its 100+ year history, the iconic program of the Boy Scouts of America opened its doors to young women as well as young men, all of whom now have the chance to earn Scouting’s highest rank of Eagle Scout. Lexi was the first and only girl to become a member of newly created Scout Troop #34, and is now on her way to achieving her dream of becoming an Eagle Scout. As part of this transition, the organization also changed its name to an all-inclusive version - Scouts BSA. Brandi Zink, Lexi’s Mom, said the change to allow girls was very controversial and a few parents in the area went so far as to remove their sons from the organization. Brandi even received some push back from friends and other parents who questioned why she was allowing her daughter to join the organization. She answered the critics, “It’s 100% her decision and it’s her true passion, so I support her. She’s fearless and grew up with her brothers in the Boy Scouts and participated in many Scouting activities with our two sons. This program is teaching her invaluable leadership skills.” She noted, “It’s strange, the boys never treat her any differently, only the adults do.” Brandi explained, “In fact, one of the reasons Lexi became disenchanted with the Girl Scouts after two years, was that they didn’t allow the whole family to participate in camping trips or activities with the troop.” The Boy Scouts encourage families and all siblings to join in the fun, so Lexi always took part in competitions alongside her brothers, including building and racing a derby car in the Pinewood Derby. Her mother noted, “Lexi has always been more into outdoorsy activities such as camping and hiking but that wasn’t as prevalent in the Girl Scout programs.” Brandi explained that there’s a lot of confusion in the community about how the girls participate with the boys. “Most people don’t understand that the boys and the girls are in separate troops but they are partnered with a boys’ troop as a ‘sister’ troop. The all-girl troop is headed by a female leader and the all-boy troop is led by a male. Brandi continued, “On a camping trip, during the day boys and girls participate in all activities together as a group. However in the evening, the troops split off and set up camp in completely separate areas of the campground.” She hopes once parents have a better understanding of how the program really works, more girls will be encouraged to join. Lexi’s new Scout Troop #34 is paired with Scout Troop #33, a well-established group with over 300 members that is chartered and sponsored by Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church in Land O’Lakes. Lexi’s pack is a start-up with 12 girls so far, and they are looking to expand membership and secure local sponsors. Both troops meet every Tuesday evening at 7 p.m. at Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church located at 2348 Collier Parkway in Land O' Lakes. _____________________________________________________

Tracy explains, “When it comes to senior care, that’s an extremely emotional decision. Everyone is so focused on safety and security but what seniors and their families want even more is how to help them thrive and live their lives – regardless of physical condition or mental state.” According to Forbes, socially isolated seniors have a 59 percent greater risk of mental and physical decline than those who do not experience social isolation. Rooted in science and medicine, seniors who feel better can live healthier and longer lives. Tracy continues, “No matter how acute their need may be, we consider it our job to not just keep them safe but to help them thrive by bringing out who they are and what they still have to offer. We see amazing potential in every senior and we help our clients focus on daily doses of joy that can make all the difference.”  __________________________________________________________________  Comfort Keepers is located at 17901 Hunting Bow Circle - Suite 101, Lutz, FL  33558 (813) 920-4440 HHA: 299994676

Get Your Kids Out of the House This Summer

BY SANDY PARRISH

A

s a parent, you’ve probably become accustomed to seeing your child’s face illuminated by that bright blue glow from their electronic devices. But as we know, all that sparkles isn’t gold. As summer camp season approaches, parents can give their kids the gift of being unplugged and out in nature. Is it hard to imagine your child disconnected from their cell phone or tablet? Luckily, most summer camps require kids to check all electronics at the door, so this time you won’t have to be the bad guy. Many adventure camps are nestled right in our own backyard, offering outdoor fun ranging from highly specialized sports programs to horseback riding at a nearby dude ranch. Others provide rock wall climbing, ropes courses, hiking, paddle boarding, sailing, kayaking, and many more physical activities. Getting out of a sedentary comfort zone helps children develop healthy risk taking skills where they practice taking new steps in a safe, structured and supportive environment, while being cheered on by their peers. There’s nothing more freeing than getting out of your mind and into your physical body where you have only one option - to actually be in the present moment. Different types of camps are available including partial or full days locally, or sleepaway camps. In addition to offering the same perks of a day program, sleepaway camps deliver their own unique benefits by specifically promoting independence, self-care and individual responsibility. This principle is paired with the development of a strong sense of community and teamwork, while immersed in a new environment free of established habits, patterns or thinking. Some parents get anxious sending their little ones out of town for a sleepaway camp, however the kids are usually chomping at the bit to go. Many camps offer family weekends where you and your kids can go for a weekend either to take a camp tour or sleep over to have the experience that your kids would enjoy. Visiting the camp ahead of time makes kids more comfortable when it’s time to check in because they are already familiar with the staff and camp grounds. Regardless of the location, when kids arrive home from a day at summer camp, they often talk non-stop about how much fun they had and the new friends they made. Many parents are greeted by a child who has a newfound self-confidence or has become more extraverted than when they left home. Camp offers kids a refuge from any preconceived notion of who people think they are, at school or at home, by being immersed in a completely different atmosphere filled with new possibilities. This encourages kids to safely stretch their wings a little at a time, resulting in great leaps in personal growth and confidence. VOLUME VI • ISSUE IV

Here are a few of the tips offered by The Florida Department of Children and Families for considering a summer camp program.

√ What are the program’s health, safety and nutrition procedures? √ Ask about the sign-in and sign-out policies, medication and discipline policies, lifeguard certification and water safety, field trip and transportation, handling of sick children, and missing children policy. √ Is the staff screened? Has everyone in the organization been fingerprinted as required by law? Has the camp conducted a check of local law enforcement records, national and statewide criminal history check through the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Florida Department of Law Enforcement for all of the staff and volunteers? √ What are the staff-to-child ratios and group sizes of the program? Florida’s maximum staff-to-child ratio for school-age children is 1-to-25. National quality standards recommend between 1-to-8 and 1-to-15 for children age 5-to-teens, and group sizes should be no larger than 30. √ Is the staff well-trained? Ask about staff experience and education in early childhood, school-age care, recreation, serving children with special needs, CPR, first aid, lifeguarding and if they are appropriately licensed for transporting children. √ Is the program licensed or accredited? These are not required, however licensure and accreditation ensure that basic health and safety standards are met and often requires meeting additional quality standards. √ Are parents welcome to visit? Are family activities offered? Day programs should be accessible and welcoming to parents at all times. √ Quality programs provide more than continuous free play. Ask to review a typical lesson plan. Plans should be consistent with the philosophy of the program and should include indoor, outdoor, quiet, active, staff-planned, child-initiated and free choice activities. √ Outdoor programs should include indoor or sheltered areas for resting, respite from the sun and to use for bad weather days.

HUGE SUCCESS!

hat a great day! The 2019 Central Pasco Chamber of Commerce Music Fest held on March 23rd was perfect. Perfect weather, perfect music, vendors, food, beer, wine, friends & family. The only downside was not enough port o’ pottys. According to Les Saland, President of the Chamber, “We just weren’t expecting this many people.” Hence, a bit of a line to find relief.  The event began at 4pm which allowed the crowd to soak up some sun with their kids and pets. After the sun set the temp dropped some with a little chill in the air. All one had to do though is get up and dance to get the blood going. We think this should be a monthly event! Kudos to the Central Pasco Chamber!

Saint Patrick’s Day Celebration at O’Brien's Pub in Wesley Chapel

Would the founder of Christianity in Ireland have

been OK with people in America celebrating the day of his death with the drinking of green beer? Possibly in excessive amounts? Well, the day was a holy day of obligation, but it was also a day to celebrate Ireland itself. O’Brien's Pub in Wesley Chapel made the celebration a 3-day event with bands, beads, games and more. Friday brought the Daniel Sprouse Band, Saturday the Harold Jones band, and Sunday the Troy Duncan Band. Yes, there was green beer along with corned beef & cabbage, Corn Hole and more. O’Brien's took over the parking lot with tents, tables and a stage. It appears that this is a regular occurrence at O’Brien's every year!
