LAND, AIR, AND SEA CAMP
Dates: August 4-8 (4 night overnight)
Join SolPlay's Land, Air, and Sea Camp for a week full of activity. Campers will scale Signal Knob (LAND), get up in the AIR on Shenandoah River's State Park new canopy tours, and finish with a relaxing paddle down the Shenandoah River (SEA). Teams will work to design and make vehicles which transport objects across land, over water, and through the air. We'll camp right on the Shenandoah River and will enjoy group games, challenges, night hikes, and cooling dips. Join us for this great adventure! (Cost: $650)
2014 LAS Camp Details:
SolPlay is excited to offer Land, Air, & Sea (LAS for short) for a 2nd year in a row. It is for youth ages 11-14 and is full of activities. Camp runs August 4-8. We will leave Arlington on Monday morning, set up our tents at Low Water Bridge Campground, and then embark on daily challenges!
The week consists of daily ‘challenges’. Tuesday (LAND) we’ll hike Signal Knob. Wednesday (AIR) is a canopy tour in Shenandoah State Park. Thursday (SEA) will be a canoe trip down the Shenandoah River. In addition, we’ll challenge the campers’ minds with an Odyssey-of-the-Mind-type activity: creating vehicles that can transport an object on land, through the air, or by sea. Campers will be allowed to bring a small Ziploc bag with materials that they think would help. We’ll provide additional materials. But the rest is up to them to create in small teams!
It wouldn’t be camp without swimming in the river, campfires, s’mores, night games, and plenty of time to bond and create new friendships from young people from different schools around Arlington (and beyond).
Our staff is top notch. Two of our staff are returning for their 2nd year of LAS. Ariel Schwartz, Assistant Director, brings extensive experience with the outdoors and a genuine love of young people. She’s worked in Arlington County camps and outdoor camps. Michael Swisher, Camp Director, is a longtime outdoorsy-type with a love of trees and nature. Known as the ‘games guy’ he always seems to have some activity that can help the bonding process for the campers, or just to have fun together!
