All staff members report to camp several days ahead of our campers so that they may go through our Counselor Institute. At Counselor Institute we thoroughly review daily responsibilities, situations that may arise, expectations for staff conduct and emergency procedures. Additionally, by the time our campers arrive, our staff has reviewed all the information about their individually assigned campers as provided by their parents. This is one more way we strive to ensure a safe, fun and personalized camp experience.

In conjunction with, and as a foundation for, our on-stage productions, Encore offers a year-round series of theater classes, workshops, and summer camps. Stage Door, Scenes for Tweens, and It’s Elementary. Literacy and playwriting have become an important focus within our educational programming through Encore’s “Play-Ground” for middle school students.

In addition, we have recently started a number of creative programs designed to expand our reach in the community and our offerings for our students. These include the Musical Theatre Intensive, for singers in the 8th grade and older; the Encore Traveling Theatre Club, through which Encore participants attend plays at other theaters in the area, including Arena Stage, The Roundhouse Theatre, and Signature Theatre; and Evenings with the Pros, in which Encore participants take acting workshops from local professional actors.

CAMP LOCATION: Our dance studios are located in Herndon, VA, near the intersection of the Dulles Toll Road and Fairfax County Parkway. This is just minutes away from the historic downtown Herndon as well as the bustling Reston Town Center. Washington, DC and its beautiful national museums are also nearby--only 23 miles!

CAMP FACILITIES: Classical Ballet Theatre's facilities include two large studios with raised flooring, barres, and mirrors as well as common and administrative areas.

Herndon and Reston have myriad hotel accommodations for students who wish to participate yet reside outside of a commuting distance. As Classical Ballet Theatre's programs are daily only, a responsible chaperone must accompany such students, in order to provide them with transportation to and from the studios, meals, and supervision outside of the studios. The chaperone does not need to be present during the instructional day.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Spend your summer with one of the most highly regarded classical ballet and contemporary dance schools and performance companies in the Washington Metropolitan Area -- Classical Ballet Theatre, considered a "best" for ballet by CBS DC!

In addition to its school-year program, Classical Ballet Theatre offers high caliber dance training every summer for children ages 4-18 as well as for adults. All programs are taught by excellent faculty and tailored for students' ages and abilities.

For more information about Classical Ballet Theatre, its outstanding faculty, and its school-year and summer programs, please telephone (703) 471-0750 or visit Our Camp Website Link: www.cbtnva.org. There you may also find fun photographs and video highlights.

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMS: History: Over twenty-five years ago, Cynthia Donavin founded Classical Ballet Theatre (CBT), which today includes a classical ballet and contemporary dance training academy as well as performance companies. The not-for-profit organization has shared its love of the performing arts with thousands of students and patrons. It has presented beloved, classical ballets, such as "The Nutcracker," "Cinderella," "Sleeping Beauty," "Swan Lake," and "Coppelia" as well as original productions, such as "Tom Sawyer." It has maintained an outstanding faculty, and it has developed young artists who have been able to pursue careers in the theater at every level of excellence. In response to the demands of Fairfax County, CBT expanded its training programs, scholarships, and outreach efforts, which has resulted in its growth and establishment as a highly respected educational and performing arts organization in the Washington Metropolitan Area.

Mission: CBT provides education, performance, and outreach opportunities in the art of dance.

Education: CBT provides the highest caliber of classical ballet and contemporary dance training and coaching, affords classes to dancers of all ages and abilities, and prepares dancers for careers in the performing arts. The children's program emphasizes pre-professional achievement, with each instruction level crafted to provide comprehensive training in order to produce the high quality dancer for which CBT is known. In addition to academy classes, training includes master classes with industry leaders, Youth America Grand Prix coaching, dance conditioning specialties, summer intensives, and choreography camps. The adult program offers stretch classes, core conditioning, and classical training, and it often serves local and visiting professional dancers.

Performance: CBT provides exceptional classical ballet and contemporary dance performance opportunities, while offering professional quality productions to the community at affordable prices. Productions include beautiful choreography and some of the best, pre-professional talent in the area. CBS DC named CBT as one of the “best places to see ballet in the DC area.“

Outreach: CBT's extensive community outreach includes free performing arts enrichment programs for local schools, organizations, and underserved populations, as well as tribute performances that raise public awareness for worthy causes and/or honor members of the community. CBT also offers educational backstage tours, complimentary tickets to underserved populations, and performance discounts to scouts, military families, children, and seniors.

Goals: CBT has three main goals on which it consistently focuses:

To share its love of the performing arts by fulfilling the mission of the organization to the best of its ability and to incorporate ongoing program development and improvement to ensure the identification and fulfillment of student and community needs in innovative ways;

To instill core values of integrity, honesty, inclusion, respect, care, and excellence in its students; and

To serve as Northern Virginia's premier classical ballet and contemporary dance instruction academy and performance theatre and to be recognized nationally and internationally for developing future dancers who are mentally, physically, and emotionally capable of success.

CAMP SESSION DATES & FEES:
9:00 am-3:30 pm, Mondays-Fridays, June 26-July 28, 2017

After college, Cheryl's further formal training included studies with Josephine Forsberg at The Players Workshop of The Second City and with co-founder and Artistic Director Jeff Perry at the Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago. Cheryl was also a member of The Second City National Touring Company. She worked for 20 years in Hollywood as a professional actress, comedy coach, assistant voice casting agent, voice-over artist, director, and producer of comedy shows. In the 1990s, Cheryl's comedy classes for kids and teens were rated as "Best in L.A." by the alternative news weekly New Times Los Angeles.

Cheryl is also an individual acting coach who offers private lessons for actors who need help to prepare for auditions. She also teaches beginners and advanced actors practical advice about monologues, scene study, and improvisation with an emphasis on how to practice good diction and non-verbal communication skills that can often make an audition more effective and memorable.

Since 1995, Cheryl has taught acting to about 6,200 children, teens, and adults in both California and Virginia. When Cheryl worked in Chicago, she was nominated for a local Emmy Award and won a Joseph Jefferson Award for best actress in a revue. She also won a Drama Logue Theater Award for her performance in a revue in Los Angeles.

Cheryl was known to thousands of children in the 1990s for her starring role as Mother Goose in The Mother Goose Video Treasury. The musical nursery rhyme shows with puppets and live actors were very popular and favorably reviewed by Parents Magazine and are still sold today in the DVD format.

Cheryl also appeared on several network TV programs including as a series regular in the NBC show Against the Grain in 1993. She was also both a regular actor and a writer for The Motown Revue Starring Smokey Robinson in 1985. After re-locating from LA to Virginia In 2007, she started her own small acting school in the city of Falls Church for students from northern Virginia. But students also come from as far away as Baltimore, Frederick, Annapolis, Richmond, Haymarket, and Leesburg. Her school features small classes, private lessons, and audition-preparation coaching for advanced students who need as much individual time and attention as possible. Cheryl designs her classes and monolgues for all ages including adults without previous acting experience. Her students have been in films, won parts in school and community theater productions, and have filmed commercials and public service announcements.

Our new air-conditioned classroom offers ample free parking in front of a deluxe apartment complex club house that is located in a safe residential neighborhood near to the East Falls Church Orange Line Metro Stop and to major highways.

Our programs include chess programs and camps thru USA Chess, Our Gamebuilder Video Game Creation Programs and our Active Learning Computer Enrichment Programs.

Our staff is, comprised of the best children's chess instructors in North America! The USA Chess camps are uniquely qualified to cater to the needs of the advanced scholastic player as well as the true beginner. USA Chess hit its first milestone in the summer of 2000 producing the largest chess camp ever held in the United States, with more than 250 students enrolled. What was most surprising, however, was the amount of absolute beginners in attendance - more than 50% of the total enrollment was just starting to play chess. This realization led to the national rollout tour of 100 camps in more than 70 cities. The annual tours have been immensely successful with several thousand campers attending this year alone.

USA Chess thrives on providing a structured environment that is extremely conducive to learning chess. We handpick the best children's chess instructors from all over the United States and bring them to each camp. We believe our team is most effective in teaching chess to children of all ages and levels. The exceptional organization and ever-fun curriculum has fueled much interest from scholastic players and coaches from around the country, prompting them to request USA Chess camps in their areas.

At the same summer camp locations, we also offer the immensely popular Gamebuilder Video Game Creation Camps, The Active Learning Computer Animation Programs, and other Computer Enrichment Programs such as Modding, Networking and Hosting with Minecraft. We now offer seven unique programs in all.

At these camps, children are assigned a computer for the week; they spend the week learning to create their own one-of- a- kind video games in our Gamebuilder Camps, Animation Projects in our Animation Camps, also Modding, Networking and Hosting with Minecraft.

Their mission is to build life-long appreciation for live theater by involving young people in all aspects of theater arts — onstage, backstage, in the classroom, and in the audience.

Today, Encore has grown to include our production season and school year education classes and summer programs. Encore presents five fully realized productions each year under the guidance and direction of experienced theater professionals. Encore is unique in offering dramatic productions in which every actor and every behind–the-scenes technician is a young person under 18 years of age. Our summer production program, casts youth ages 15 and older, as well as college students and adult community members. Encore’s multi-age structure encourages mentoring and role modeling between older and younger participants. Our production opportunities are provided to participants at no cost.

In conjunction with, and as a foundation for, our on-stage productions, Encore offers a year-round series of theater classes, workshops, and summer camps. Stage Door, Scenes for Tweens, and It’s Elementary. Literacy and playwriting have become an important focus within our educational programming through Encore’s “Play-Ground” for middle school students.

These include the Musical Theatre Intensive, for singers in the 8th grade and older; the Encore Traveling Theatre Club, through which Encore participants attend plays at other theaters in the area, including Arena Stage, The Roundhouse Theatre, and Signature Theatre; and Evenings with the Pros, in which Encore participants take acting workshops from local professional actors.

CAMPER AGES: rising 1st to 12th grade

TYPE OF CAMP: Overnight/Sleepaway. two night sessions for Buddies in Christ/Special Needs Camp

CAMPER GENDER(S): Coed Campers.

AFFILIATION(S): Christian. Evangelical Lutheran Church in America

BRIEF CAMP DESCRIPTION: Caroline Furnace Lutheran Camp & Retreat Center sits on 257 acres in the Shenandoah Valley. We offer eight weeks of Summer Camp to rising 1st through 12th graders. Campers experience daily worship and Bible study, plus a large range of activities. Campers can expect a week packed with fun! They'll get to swim, canoe, fish, creek walk, play small and large group games, challenge themselves on our low ropes course, hike, cook over a campfire, create crafts, learn archery, gain culinary skills, and explore the furnace ruins on camp property. Each week, Chaplains from supporting congregations join us in leading the campers in morning worship, Bible study, and campfire and evening devotion. Caroline Furnace combines small and large group -style camping in an outdoor, faith-filled setting, all to create an unforgettable summer camp experience for your camper.

SPECIAL NEEDS CAMPERS: Come experience camp together! Buddies in Christ camp is June 30-July 2 and July 2-4, and is designed for campers rising 1st to 12th grade who may not be able to come to camp on their own. We recognize that traditional summer camp has inherent demands that can make it difficult for campers with special needs - to include a busy schedule, high levels of activity, and uneven terrain. For Special Needs Camp, we work with each family to meet the needs of each individual.

Each camper comes for two nights with at least one parent. Buddies in Christ Camp is based in the Cabin Village. Group size is intentionally small (15 campers per session) to maximize individualized attention. Every camper has a high school or college aged "buddy" to guide them throughout the day. Parents are given optional free time on the second day of camp (July 1 or July 3, depending on session), and we will have parent activities and local business discounts available.

All camper activities are challenge by choice and include campfires, canoeing, fishing, swimming, yoga and play-based worship. Camp concludes with an optional family outing on the third day. The entire schedule is adapted to allow for longer transition times, flexibility, and more down time.

We feel it is important to discuss the realities of camp with each family, and what we can do to help each camper. The Cabin Village is wheelchair accessible, with two wheelchair accessible Cabins and accessibility to all common areas. There will most likely be two or three families per Cabin. The Cabins do not have air conditioning but we provide fans. The Cabin Village is wooded and nearly all activities will be accessed via trails. It can be humid and buggy during the day in the summer, with cool, dark nights.

CAMP INSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITIES OFFERED:
Theater, Music/Band, Fine Arts/Crafts, Horses/Equestrian, Waterfront/Aquatics, Team Sports, Academics, Adventure, Travel, Wilderness/Nature, and more. Canoeing, Fishing, Archery, Hiking, Culinary, History, Caving, Rock Climbing,

VIEW CAMP PHOTO

CAMP LOCATION: Located in beautiful Bath County, Virginia, Camp Mont Shenandoah offers 60-acres of fields, woods with hiking trails, and waterfront access to a pristine mountain river. We are well located, just under an hour’s drive from the intersection of I-81 and I-64 in Central Virginia. For those coming from farther away, special arrangements for shuttle transportation to/from regional airports can be arranged. Our surrounding community offers a number of additional activities and amenities, including The Homestead Resort, George Washington National Forest, Douthat State Park, Garth Newel Music Center, and charming historic communities like Hot Springs and Warm Springs. Please visit our website for lots of camp photos and videos.

CAMP FACILITIES: Our traditional camp buildings range from cozy screened cabins to large lodge-style gathering places. Many of the original camp structures remain, such as the 1920s dining hall (where girls gather three times each day to eat family style, home-cooked meals) and West Lodge (where performances delight campers of every age). While we are rustic, we do have electricity and all our bathhouses offer flush toilets and hot water showers.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Founded in 1927 by Nannie West, Camp Mont Shenandoah is one of the oldest girls’ camps in Virginia. The exceptional Mont Shenandoah experience has kept families returning for generations and inspired numerous campers to return as counselors. Camp Mont Shenandoah’s mission is to create an excellent summer camp experience for girls. In a safe and caring environment, our camp provides the setting and structure each girl needs to grow -- physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually.

Through cabin living, fun, challenging activities, relationships with peers and staff, and longstanding traditions, we promote life skills that instill confidence, develop a girl’s sense of self and foster independence. Campers leave Mont Shenandoah having learned the guiding principles of our five virtues: Love, Loyalty, Friendship, Sportsmanship, and Spiritual Awareness. Camp Mont Shenandoah boasts a high rate of returning program staff, almost all of whom are former campers or junior counselors. Counselors are selected based on their maturity, stability, dependability, leadership skills, ability to relate to girls of all ages, sense of humor as well as their knowledge and demonstrated skills in the activity for which they are hired to teach. The camper-to-staff ratio is five to one, assuring each girl ample individual attention

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: In 2005, Camp Mont Shenandoah started The Camp Spirit Scholarship to help campers attend camp that may not otherwise be able to due to financial constraints. The Camp Spirit Scholarship is a fund within Community Foundation for Rockbridge, Bath and Alleghany, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

OTHER CAMP INFO: If horses are your passion, you’ll be able to enjoy a comprehensive horseback riding program designed for girls of all ages and skill levels at Cabell Stable, our equestrian facility built in 2001. Our goals at Cabell Stable at Camp Mont Shenandoah are to improve riding skills, teach proper horse care and barn maintenance, learn to appreciate and value horses, and lastly (but certainly not least!) to have fun. From the moment they set foot in Cabell Stable, campers are taught to respect each horse and how to properly handle them on the ground and in the saddle. Our lessons are based on hunt seat equitation that focuses on the rider’s form. We limit our horseback riding classes to no more than five girls in the ring at a time, ensuring adequate instruction for each camper. Safety is of primary importance at Cabell Stable. When mounted, all girls must wear an approved (ATSM-SEI) protective helmet, long pants (or breeches) and boots with a heel. (We have helmets for campers to borrow if they do not have their own).

CAMP SESSION DATES & FEES:
Camp Mont Shenandoah offers a six-week session, two three-week sessions, and a one week-long session, called Roots & Shoots.

CAMPER GENDER(S): Coed Campers. All Boy Campers. All Girl Campers.

AFFILIATION(S): Christian. Virginia Baptist Mission Board
Baptist General Association of Virginia

SPECIAL NEEDS CAMPERS: We realize how few events there are for families affected by autism. As a result, we wanted to offer a family friendly, Christian environment for the entire family. During our Autism Family Camp, parents have time to network with other families, siblings have activities just for them, and more. Overall the whole family has a great opportunity to grow physically, spiritually, socially, and emotionally.

CAMP INSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITIES OFFERED:
Horses/Equestrian, Swimming, Waterfront/Aquatics, Sailing, Adventure, Travel, Wilderness/Nature, and more.

CAMP LOCATION: We are 1 1/2 hours East of Richmond on the Piankatank River on 100 acres of wooded/waterfront property. Our location makes us ideal for land and water based activities. Currently, we have a popular sailing program and an adventurous outdoor education program. One of the highlights of our property is a 30 acre island just off of our waterfront. Some of our tracks canoe out to the island and spend a night during the week (weather permitting).

CAMP FACILITIES: We have 3 large, very comfortable cabins with indoor plumbing and central heat and a/c. We also have a swimming pool, pavilion, dining hall, activity hall, boathouse,and large fields for sports.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: “Camp Piankatank Summer Camp and Retreat center seeks to be a place where children, youth, and adults can enjoy God’s creation along the Piankatank River in a Christian retreat environment that encourages physical, spiritual, social, and emotional growth..”

Our goal is to glorify God by pointing others to Him, whether that’s through our summer camp program, or through the retreats that we plan or host. Camp Piankatank is a Christian summer camp and retreat center owned by the Baptist General Association of Virginia, and located on the beautiful Piankatank River.

During the summer, Camp Piankatank becomes what it was meant to be from the beginning, a summer camp. For many years, Camp Piankatank was operated as just a summer camp. This is our passion, this is why Camp Piankatank exists, and this is why so many people love this place – they have experienced the live-changing power of Christ at Camp Piankatank, and can point to the very place at camp that they first accepted him as their Lord and Savior.

Meet the Directors

Steve and Niki Gourley have been Directors at Camp Piankatank since 2006. They both have a long history at the camp, and have a passion for camp ministry. They understand the impact that camp can and does have on a child’s life, and that’s why they continue to serve here.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: We offer a CIT training program for students ages 15-17. After being accepted through the application process, CIT's come for a week of training alongside our counseling staff. During the summer, they attend two weeks of camp as a CIT. Each week costs $150, which is considerably lower than a typical week of camp. However, the training week is free of charge. CIT's will learn responsibility, professionalism, how to lead a group, how to lead a Bible study, and more. For more information, please contact our camp office.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: We do offer financial assistance for families in need. Those interested can contact the camp for a scholarship application.

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): In addition to our Autism Family Camp, we also offer two weekend family camps. We have a Mother/Daughter weekend and a Father/Son weekend. It's a great time for parents to get away with their kids and experience God's creation together!

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMS: Outside of our summer programming, we rent out our facilities to all types of user groups. We are a great location to host your church or company retreat, whether it be for a day, weekend, or week. We can offer lodging, meals, high and low ropes activities, water based activities, meeting space with a/v equipment (subject to availability) and more.

Throughout the year Camp Piankatank is available for many different kinds of retreats, and hosts events for all non-profit groups, not just Baptist groups. We offer custom quotes to fit your needs, and we can do as little or as much as you would like us to do. From simply giving your Boy Scout troop a place to pitch some tents, or helping you plan your weekend retreat (with food, lodging, activities, and even a speaker) we are available to help.
