SUMMER CAMP JOBS:
Camp Tall Timbers has a 4 -1 ratio of campers to staff.

Each summer much of our staff is made up of returning employees or former campers who are now in college.

The entire team at Camp Tall Timbers is a wonderful mix of teachers, coaches and college students. Each staff member is carefully selected for their teaching expertise in a given activity area, their personality, as well as their interest in working with children.

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.

This was a fantastic experience for all the players and certainly raised the standard of training through the week. In 2011 we had two of our students sign academy contracts with Fulham FC and another two students who were able to go train with that same club. It is important for us to share ideas and also grasp concepts and ideas from countries that have accomplished so much in the game over the years.

This is why we always have such a diverse and high level of professional coach and player at these camps. In addition we regularly get some of the best players from the area in attendance from clubs like Bethesda SC, Baltimore Bays, Mclean Premier Soccer, Potomac Soccer, Loudoun Soccer, Arlington Soccer, Soca Elite and Ashburn Soccer to name a few with players coming from as far as England, Germany, Florida, Kentucky and Guam in the past."

VIEW CAMP PHOTO

CAMP LOCATION: Old Dominion University is located in the coastal city of Norfolk, Virginia.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Envision Lead Grow is a Norfolk-based non-profit organization designed to introduce entrepreneurship to middle school girls through camps, mentoring, webinars and conferences. Through this repeated exposure and practice, girls develop entrepreneurial, STEAM-infused skills that allow them to contribute to and stimulate local economies.

Envision Lead Grow‘s mission is to increase the rate of entrepreneurship and break the cycle of poverty for 1,000 middle school girls in underserved communities in the U.S. by 2020. We are committed to helping them build their future through entrepreneurship by creating a community to support their success.

Angela D. Reddix is the President and CEO of ARDX, a multi-million-dollar healthcare management and IT consulting firm based in Norfolk, Virginia.

In 2016, Angela created the Envision Lead Grow movement, an online platform designed to support and encourage entrepreneurs at every stage of their journey.

Angela values education and is determined to share her knowledge with you.

Anyssa Reddix is a published author, speaker, and mentor to young girls. Sharing Angela’s passion for entrepreneurship, she jumped into Envision Lead Grow with both feet.

Anyssa is the Program Manager for Envision Lead Grow. She is in charge of organizing the stops along the 7-City Bus Tour. She has put together the team of counselors that will travel from city to city, she will be overseeing how they carry out the curriculum, “The 8 Seeds to Success in Business,” as well as organizing the logistics to get the bus on the road.

In 2016, the idea of the 7-City Bus Tour was just that. An idea. In 2017, thanks to the support, the time and the generosity of so many people, the first ever Envision Lead Grow cross-country tour was an overwhelming success. The national Envision Lead Grow 7-City Bus Tour kicked off the Envision Lead Grow entrepreneur program in the summer of 2017, making stops in 7 different cities (Atlanta, GA; Baltimore, MD; Memphis, TN; Norfolk, VA; Philadelphia, PA; Richmond, VA; and Greensboro, NC) across the United States. The ELG team shared its fast-paced, fun-filled curriculum, “The 8 Seeds to Success in Business”, written by Dr. Angela Reddix Founder and CEO herself, during a week-long summer camp in each city.

In 2018, ELG plans to expand its reach by serving two more regions- Bowling Green, KY; and Charleston, WV. Rather than touring each city like we did in 2017, in the summer of 2018, a total of 250 girls will travel from all branches to our home city of Norfolk to begin or expand their "8 Seeds to Success in Business" growth, together.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: ELG's Entrepreneurial Immersion Summer Camp is free of charge to our Girl Bosses and their family.

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMS: Envision Lead Grow is a Norfolk-based non-profit organization designed to introduce entrepreneurship to middle school girls through camps, mentoring, webinars and conferences. Through this repeated exposure and practice, girls develop entrepreneurial, STEAM-infused skills that allow them to contribute to and stimulate local economies.

The Envision Lead Grow Entrepreneurial Program consists of 4 parts:
Summer Immersion
9-Month Mentoring Support
All City, All Girls Webinars
The Entrepreneur Institute

Summer Immersion
The Envision Lead Grow program begins HERE, at one of our entrepreneurial immersion summer camps. Middle school girls from around your community will come together at a sleepaway camp to learn the building blocks of becoming an entrepreneur. Many of the girls start the session as strangers and will leave as great friends. Over the course of the summer program, participants will take part in exercises to help them think bigger, to apply entrepreneurial, STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics) infused skills to everyday life and to make better decisions. At the end of the summer immersion camp, these young women will leave with a solid business idea, a Passion Pitch they can use to sell their idea to others and confidence to take their company - and community - to the next level.

9-Month Mentoring Support
The Summer Immersion summer camp experience is just the beginning of the process for these budding Girl Bosses. We partner with adult mentors in each city where Envision Lead Grow sets up. After the summer camp is finished, female volunteers within the community step in to guide, to support and to be a sounding board for these young entrepreneurs. Over the course of the school year, the mentors check in with their young mentees to keep them on track.

All City, All Girls Webinars
It can be lonely to be in business for yourself, so Envision Lead Grow designed a way to ensure these young entrepreneurs never feel isolated. Aside from the check-ins with their mentors, ELG girls and mentors have the chance to meet each other through virtual meetings. Through these monthly video calls, the girls get to learn from ELG Founder Angela Reddix, as well as, each other. We believe that it is important to have a network of support through not only their ELG branch city mentor, but other ELG peers and mentors from all branches, too.

The Entrepreneur Institute
Envision Lead Grow will reward business owners who are committed to making their companies thrive. The Entrepreneur Institute is a multi-day field trip that will bring together the leaders of Fortune 500 companies, mentors and business educators. It’s an all-expenses paid trip for the girls who participate in the mentoring sessions, the All-City Webinars and the ELG business challenges. ELG Girl Bosses who are engaged in the program can earn a spot in The Entrepreneur Institute.

OTHER CAMP INFO: Girls will learn the "8 Seeds to Success in Business" curriculum, written and developed by Dr. Angela D. Reddix, Founder, President and CEO of ARDX, a mult-million dollar management and technology consulting company based in Norfolk, Virginia. This summer, the "8 Seeds" curriculum has been enhanced to include STEAM-infused exercises and activities. In addition to entrepreneurial, STEAM-infused practices, girls will have opportunity for choice time activities, such as yoga, drama (daily improvisation games), singing, dancing, creative writing, visual art, sports (volleyball, soccer, basketball, or tennis), swimming, blogging, cooking, and/or hiking. The girls will have the opportunity to explore Hampton Roads and experience some form of culture that is unique or unfamiliar to them. By the end of the week of camp, each girl will have a venture with a business plan ready to begin making sales, increased level of self-efficacy, greater self-control, conscientiousness, evaluation of short-term and long-term goals, intuition for decision making, and the ability to pitch her business venture successfully.

CAMP SESSION DATES & FEES:
The ELG Class of 2019 will begin with Summer Immersion. This year, Summer Immersion is a one-week long, all-expenses paid, sleepaway camp hosted at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia.

Girls currently in the 4th-6th grade are invited to apply! Once girls are in the program, they can continue with us until they graduate from high school.

TYPE OF CAMP: Overnight/Sleepaway. Day Camp. Weekend Family Camps

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.

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.
