Dragonfly Forest - Camp Program - Westtown SchoolDragonfly Forest is designed for children living with serious illnesses and disorders suffering physically and emotionally not only from coping with the treatments necessary to sustain life, but also from coping with the loss of their childhood. These children spend much of their lives in medical facilities with adults rather than at playgrounds and with other children just being kids. At Dragonfly Forest between morning swims and evening campfires, approximately 120 children become actors on stage, swimmers, artists, athletes, canoe paddlers, stargazers and, most importantly, friends. Our campers experience a magical transformation, as they sing and dance, learn to soar, and develop important friendships that often last a lifetime. At first glance, Dragonfly Forest looks like any other traditional summer camp. There is swimming, boating, fishing, archery, arts and crafts, ropes courses, boating and nature activities. Yet, look more closely and you will find that Dragonfly Forest is specifically designed for children with chronic or life threatening illnesses and disorders and allows them to safely enjoy the activities of a "traditional" camp. Dragonfly Forest is more than a fun-filled getaway. It helps children to better cope with the day-to-day challenges they face. Nestled among hundreds of rolling acres in rural, pristine, Chester County, PA, this unique location provides excitement and adventure for campers in the great outdoors. Between early morning crafts and evening carnivals, children whose lives have been a series of medical procedures and hospital stays are transformed into just "kids." They have a chance to be with others coping with similar illnesses or conditions and realize that they are not alone. Most importantly, the prescription for the day is fun, fun, fun! Laughter, giggles, friendships, excitement, and bursting energy abound throughout our magical forest of tall pines, majestic oaks, nature trails, and a fourteen acre lake. Campers are empowered to do things they never dreamed they could do. They are infused with a spirit of accomplishment at every turn and are allowed to forget that "they have what they have."

Dragonfly Forest - Dragonfly AwayDragonfly Away extends te reach of the Dragonfly Forest camp program into Philadelphia area hospitals and rehabs centers. This program serves the kids whose illnesses prevent them from being able to attend summer sessions on the Dragonfly CAMPus. "If the kids can't get to the camp, we'll take the camp to the kids," says Executive Director Fred Weiner. "And because we're big believers in the setting as an important part of the whole camp experience, we will try as best as we can - through creative means - to transform an area of the hospital so to the children it will seem more like camp than hospital." Creative transformation, Dragonfly Forest-style, can mean everything from setting up a small-scale "carnival," to engaging kids in individual camp projects such as wood shop, to "sleeping under the stars" in pop-up tents and sleeping bags. Daily activities will be planned and scheduled for the kids in much the same way they're planned for kids on the Dragonfly CAMPus. The Dragonfly Away Camp structure is flexible to serve the needs of individual children. The program can last three to five days in duration, and are tailored for the bedside for individual kids, a floor of the hospital for groups, or for multiple groups in a hospital.Montgomery*Main Site (Dragonfly Forest)Dragonfly Forest

A typical lesson might address the importance of family and members within the family. Activity Awards are such things as learning how to camp, cook, develop film, paint, carpentry skills, bike safety and many other fun things. Each Christmas the Lord gives us a wonderful Christmas missions challenge. The children bring in coins for the purpose of meeting the needs of the hurting. In the Spring a local summer camp, Camp Sankanac, Spring City, PA presents the ministry of camping.

Information and ReferralWhat are learning disabilities? A learning disability is a neurological disorder. In simpler terms, a learning disability results from a difference in the way a person's brain is "wired." Children with learning disabilities are as smart or smarter than their peers. But, they may have difficulty reading, writing, spelling, reasoning, recalling and/or organizing information and doing mathematics, if left to figure things out by themselves or if taught in conventional ways. The reality is that a learning disability cannot be cured or fixed; it is a lifelong challenge. Take heart in knowing that with appropriate support and intervention, children with learning disabilities can achieve in school and go on to successful, often distinguished, careers. You are your child's best advocate. You can help your child by capitalizing on strengths, defining areas of weakness, understanding the educational system, working with teachers and other professionals, and helping your child learn strategies for dealing with his or her difficulties. The most common learning disabilities are: Auditory and visual processing disabilities: A person with normal hearing and vision has difficulty understanding and using language. Dyslexia: A person has trouble understanding written words, sentences or paragraphs. Dyscalculia: A person has difficulty solving arithmetic problems and grasping math concepts. Dysgraphia: A person finds it hard to form letters or write within a defined space. Dauphin*Main Site (Learning Disabilities Association of PA)Learning Disabilities Association of PA

Kids KampImagine crisp mountain air, bright sunny days, starry nights, the splendor of nature, and the sounds of enthusiastic campers racing around a grassy field playing their favorite games. Welcome to Streamside where adventure, good times, important truths and who knows what new experience awaits each one! Each encampment is structured with an overall schedule while allowing campers freedom to customize their camping experience with activities such as: Basketball and Volleyball Soccer and Field Games Bible Stories, Teaching and Devotionals Swimming and Fishing Canoeing and Paddle Boating Great Food and Banquets Challenge Course Arts and Crafts Archery and Slingshot Campfires and Cookouts Mountain Climbing and Backpacking Nature Center and Tree House Drama and Choir Snack Shop and Gift Shop Swings and Playgrounds To name a few! But wait, that’s not all! Whether in the Dining Hall, by the pool, or the popular breakfast in bed, campers enjoy three nutritionally-balanced and delicious meals a day - even the most picky eater is sure to be satisfied. Speaking of food, don’t forget about all the tasty treats offered in the Snack Shop! Here at Streamside, we firmly believe that one of the ways that God shows Himself to us is through the world around us - our families, our friends, and through His creation. Streamside’s Nature Center provides a controlled environment that allows campers a safe and hands-on experience with critters of all kinds. From exotic frogs, turtles, and snakes, to raccoons, ‘possum, and perhaps even an alligator, each camper will be able to experience God’s creation up close and personal. Step outside and hike the unique Bog Trail or wander through the woods, our trained guides will help you to see, touch, and even taste the beauty of nature. Come be amazed by God’s incredible design for this world! God has revealed Himself to us not only through the world around us, but also through His Word, the Bible. In our morning Bible classes and evening Vespers, we employ puppets, drama, songs, and guest teachers to help each camper learn more about God and how much He cares for them. To lead the way, a diverse staff of mature believers come from all over the world representing many backgrounds and cultures. Our common desire is for campers to begin an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ and to commit to living transformed lives. We believe it is essential to have a well-trained staff who are attentive to the needs and safety of each camper. Our staff and volunteers must complete an extensive application process along with background screening before serving at Streamside. Certified medical personnel and lifeguards are always on duty and secondary accident insurance is carried for all campers. With several camp dates to choose from, there is no need for anyone to miss out on a great time this summer. Between free time at the pool, boating pond, or snack shop, morning activities, evening Vespers, and a camp wide secret mission, there is never a dull moment! Whether climbing the mountain or making new friends on the basketball court, Kids Camp is the place to be! Streamside has four one-week encampment dates available for kids 8 to 12-years-old. Each encampment begins on a Monday afternoon and ends the following Saturday morning.Monroe*Main Site (Streamside Camp & Conference Center)Streamside Camp and Conference Center

Theatre Horizon - EducationEducation: One-third of Theatre Horizon’s mission is dedicated to arts education because we believe that through arts education, children are given tools to grow as individuals, creatively, and as a member of a team. Theatre Horizon focuses its education program on the idea that theatre is not just a discipline, it is a way of harboring creativity, ingenuity, and lessons for both inside and outside the theatre. We offer education programs for a variety of age groups with the goal of both having fun and encouraging children to grow. Summer Camps: Theatre Horizon offers summer drama camps to children aged 7 to 12 in Montgomery County. Using their bodies, voices and imaginations, students create characters and work with others to write and perform their own show. Students engage in a variety of theatrical exercises including character development, storytelling techniques, movement, vocalization, and games that encourage creativity and teamwork. A final performance for parents and friends on the last day gives young actors a chance to showcase their imaginative creations in full costume! After School Drama Program: Theatre Horizon is excited to bring after-school drama classes to area elementary schools! Classes run weekly throughout the 2010-2011 school year for roughly 18 sessions and are specially designed for elementary school students of all levels, from beginner to budding stars. The Program: Theatre Horizon will coordinate a weekly after school drama class in your elementary school. Students will learn acting techniques, participate in creative activities that encourage personal growth and teamwork, and work towards presenting a full-scale production of a play by the end of the semester! Building on the success of the Ithan Elementary School Drama Program, Theatre Horizon is expanding to include other area elementary schools. Classes are held in the school auditorium and taught by Theatre Horizon's staff of trained and certified drama teachers. Why A major element of Theatre Horizon's mission is arts education. We believe that through the arts, children are given tools to grow creatively, both as individuals and as a member of a team. Theatre Horizon focuses its education program on the idea that active participation in dramatic activities is a way of nurturing imagination, ingenuity, and a love of the arts. How can my school participate? If you are interested in having your school participate in Theatre Horizon's After-School Drama Program, please contact Michael McElroy at Michael@theatrehorizon.org or call (202) 299-6648 Autism Drama Outreach Program: Using a variety of dramatic techniques, Theatre Horizon has developed a drama program that strives to inspire imaginary play and encourage interest in human relationships, which are some of the key challenges in children with autism. Our Goals: - To inspire imagination and flexible thinking - To help children find their own voice - To teach social skills in a fun and positive way Our Approach: Our program is influenced by many different types of therapies and programs for children on the autism spectrum. Using core principles of the Son-Rise approach, floor-time therapy as well as modified and un-modified acting lessons and activities for children, we provide a program that supports and loves each individual child for who he or she is. We discover each child's unique and individual motivations and build off of them, encouraging relationships and creative play. We often create custom-made games that cross the child's motivations with our goals for them. Along with teaching the basics of drama, we incorporate principles of the three E's (energy, enthusiasm and excitement!), non-judgment, acceptance and tons of encouragement. We are mindful that the kids we work with are kids! Therefore we try to be silly, fun and interesting to watch. We are the child's very active, energetic and imaginative play partner. Our underlying goal is to help the students feel good about themselves while engaging in dramatic play with an accepting and encouraging friend. Links to other Resources: The Autism Treatment Center of America, is the worldwide teaching center for The Son-Rise Program(R), a powerful and effective treatment for children and adults challenged by Autism, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD), Asperger's Syndrome, and other developmental difficulties. The Son-Rise Program was originated in 1974 by parents, Barry Neil Kaufman (best-selling author, Son-Rise: The Miracle Continues) and Samahria Lyte Kaufman for their son. The treatment and educational model has changed the way children with Autism are helped worldwide. All Son-Rise Programs are designed especially for parents to teach parents how to effectively help and work with their children. MontgomeryTheatre Horizon - Montgomery; NorristownTheatre Horizon

Triskeles Foundation - Food for Thought ProgramAll of us eat, but few eat well. Understanding, appreciating, and knowing how to choose and prepare food which is delicious and healthy are skills learned through experience. Food for Thought can be that experience. Triskeles’ Food for Thought Program actively engages youth, ages 13-17, in outdoor, hands-on experiences involving organic agriculture and nutritional activities to learn how to make healthy food choices for living healthier lives! Our main constituency is a diverse group of hard-working young teens who are interested in the world. Food for Thought reaches these young people just as they are starting to make their own food choices and are heavily targeted by the fast food/junk food industries - a significant factor in why the adolescent obesity statistics, along with their associated diseases, are so alarmingly high. We have seen that when youth get fully involved with their hands and hearts, lessons learned really stick and have a lasting impact far beyond what can be taught in a classroom alone. Youth are learning skills and making connections which they’ll use all their lives, making an impact in the rapidly-growing local organic food movement, having fun, and earning stipends for their work. Food for Thought is primarily a summer program in the greater Phoenixville, PA area.Chester*Main Site (The Triskeles Foundation)Triskeles Foundation

Variety -The Children's Charity - Golf Buddies ProgramVariety – The Children’s Charity and the Philadelphia Section of the PGA of America collaborated to create the “Buddy Program” to enhance the lives of children with developmental and physical disabilities through the game of golf. Its goal is to create a buddy system between a PGA professional and a child with disabilities. Its main objective is to establish a meaningful friendship between both parties as the child is learning the fundamentals of golf while elevating the child’s self-esteem. The Golf Buddy Program requires the parent(s) to show a strong commitment to the child’s learning process. Once paired with a PGA Professional, it is the responsibility of the parent to arrange the child’s golf lessons unless the professional expresses that he/she would rather take on this responsibility. The Buddy Program will provide the required golfing equipment. All children and professionals enrolled in the program shall be registered and noted for future mailings and group activities through the offices of the Philadelphia Section of the PGA and Variety – The Children’s Charity.MontgomeryVariety Club Camp and Developmental CenterVariety-The Children's Charity
