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. If you are interested in becoming a CMS girl, we encourage you to send your registration form early as available spaces tend to fill quickly. A copy of the registration form is available for download on our website.

The full camp season is six weeks, which begins in June. We accept a limited number of three-week campers for two separate sessions within the six weeks.

2017 Dates:
•Six Weeks June 24-August 5
•First Three Weeks June 24 - July 15

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

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Do you dream of serving on the Caroline Furnace staff or becoming a stronger leader in your community? Our LITs are challenged to grow in their faith and leadership, and are equipped with skills and tools to continue learning and growing after camp is over. LITs are chosen for their faith maturity, desire to become a better leader, and motivated personality.

During your LIT! training week (Part One), you will develop skills, awareness and experience that will put you into action as a quality leader and team member. Throughout your training week, you will study and practice the art of leading others with the help of our Leadership Team. Following successful completion of your first week, you may choose a second week (Part Two) to return to camp and co-lead a cabin under the leadership of one of our counselors. Part Two weeks are offered weeks three through seven of summer camp.

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.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: At Traveling Players, small casts of actors are carefully guided by professional theatre artists to perform in outdoor amphitheaters. Our program reflects the origins of theatre, when troupes of actors roamed the ancient and medieval countryside, relying on the barest props and boldest imagination to convey their art. Each session culminates in a fully mounted and designed performance that is open to the public, thereby cultivating stronger, more adaptable, and capable artists and individuals.

Traveling Players emphasizes a meaningful engagement with nature. Every week features a campout – when campers learn Leave No Trace camping techniques, to pitch tents and cook outdoors. Our advanced students in the Shakespeare Troupe (grades 9-12) spend their final week camping out close to their performance sites—giving them the experience of wandering entertainers who carry their dinner, tent and props in their trusty pack. As artists and backpackers, all of campers learn self-reliance and creative problem solving, and gain an appreciation of challenges and beauty.

Founding Artistic Director Jeanne Harrison has taught for The Folger Shakespeare Library, Catholic University, University of Maryland-Baltimore County, Loyola University (MD), The Chapin School (NYC) and Interlochen Center for the Arts (MI), where she directed the Shakespeare program. Jeanne has worked in camping for 28 years, directed two other camps, is a certified Camp Director (American Camping Association), Wilderness First Responder (SOLO), and an Instructor with the American Red Cross. Jeanne has also served as a judge for the Helen Hayes Awards.

Clay with Claire!

Our young artists will learn how to use clay tools to create dimensionality in the clay and carve intricate details. Once the sculpting is complete, the clay will be fired and students will then learn glazing techniques to create details and contrast in their sculptures.

Weaving Fiber Art with Taleah!
In this course, our young artists will learn the weaving techniques to create beautiful woven artwork. Our young artists will start by building their very own loom and planning out dynamic compositions before starting the weaving process. Our young artists will then learn the intricacies of this ancient art process and discover ways to incorporate their unique style into their artwork by using traditional and nontraditional weaving materials.

Painting Imaginative Landscapes with Taleah!
In this course, our young artists will create their own imaginative landscapes by designing compositions from reference images that they will then learn how to paint onto canvases using acrylic paint. Our young artists will learn how to create dynamic compositions that incorporate proportion, perspective, and color theory to bring their landscapes to life. In the development of their unique landscapes, our young artists will learn how to tell a story with their artwork that brings out their artistic voice.

Mixed Media Artistic Journaling with Alessandra!
In this course, our young artists will learn how to combine narrative and art to create their own unique style of mixed media artistic journaling. By experimenting with 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional supplies such as oil pastel, watercolors, mixed papers, and natural & found materials, our young artists will discover their own artistic voice and develop their visual storytelling skills through free-form expression. Our young artists will begin their journaling process by reflecting on daily prompts to inspire their creativity and explore materials and techniques to answer that prompt. At the end of the week, our young artists will walk away with the beginnings of their very own artistic journal!

Printmaking with Heather!
In this course, our young artists will learn how to make their very own print of their unique designs through printmaking! Printmaking is a type of artform that allows our young artists to easily draw and carve their designs onto a board that they then paint and print multiple times in different colors. Our young artists will learn how to make eye-grabbing designs by exploring art fundamentals such as line quality, texture, detail, and color theory. At the end of this week-long course, our young artists will walk away with their very own foam print plate and an exciting series of art prints!

Painting Color Study with Michela!
Color Study camp program is designed to introduce students to the Studio Incamminati 23 color palette and explore the world of colors through a series of engaging painting exercises. Students will learn how to utilize colored light and work with bright, simple objects to create stunning artworks. Through the exploration of intense light and its effects on the local color of still life objects, students will develop a deep understanding of how different light
arrangements can fundamentally change the color relationships of objects in their artwork. With a focus on value versus color saturation, students will complete one canvas per day, allowing for a dialogue centered on artistic expression and technique. using painting knives and brushes, students will practice paint handling in preparation for longer studies.


Classical Drawing Level I with Michela!
In this progressively oriented beginner drawing course, our objective is to develop drawing and seeing skills in serious young artists.New students will learn the three important parts of starting a drawing:

1). the envelope
2). the separation of light from shadow, and
3). the five-value scale.

Through the use of simple still life objects, students will practice perspective and proportion under a single light source. With charcoal on toned paper, participants will learn how to see and successfully articulate monumental shapes of light and shadow, create the illusion of depth, and fully realize tonal relationships.


Classical Drawing Level II with Michela!
This course is designed to develop drawing and observational skills in serious young artists. Through the use of complex still life objects such as casts from antiquity, students will practice perspective and proportion under a single light source. Using charcoal on toned paper, participants will learn how to see and successfully articulate monumental shapes of light and shadow, creating the illusion of depth and fully realizing tonal relationships. Throughout the week, we will also introduce the Charles Bargue Drawing Course to further enhance students' mastery of skills. These skills include:

1). successfully launching an envelope around the
compositional elements,
2). determining correct tilts and angles, describing
perspective,
3). consistently separating true light from true shadow, and
4). calibrating the value of the overall still life arrangement.


Paper Mache with Michela!
This camp is all about exploring the world of three-dimensional artwork through the medium of papier-mâché. Known as the "poor man's clay," papier-mâché allows students to create sculptures and bring their imagination to life. One of the key skills learned in this camp is engineering, as students are required to construct an armature that can support the weight of their sculpture. To do this, they study the skeletal structure of animals or other subjects they wish to recreate, enabling them to engineer a strong armature as a foundation for their sculpture. The materials used to form the sculpture are simple, including wire, balloons, recycling newspaper, boxes, white printing paper, a soluble solution of methyl cellulose, Elmer's glue and hot glue. After preparing the sculpture with a white primer, students are invited to paint it using water-based tempera paints. This camp offers a skill-based learning process where students have a lot of fun creating their own unique sculptures.


Anime Drawing with Michela!
Welcome to our Japanese Style Figure Drawing Summer Camp! This camp offers students the unique opportunity to study the art of Japanese-style figure drawing and explore the creation of narratives through their artwork. Japanese-style drawing is renowned for its realistic interpretation, especially in graphic novels. Throughout the week, students will focus on different aspects of drawing skills, dedicating each day to a specific area of study. They will spend time
mastering the intricacies of drawing heads and hairstyles, bodies and body types, hands and feet, as well as perspective and backgrounds. On the final day, students will have the freedom to choose their own adventure by creating and illustrating their own short story.

Our History
Encore Stage & Studio was incorporated as The Children’s Theatre of Arlington in 1967. To date, we have produced over 175 shows. Last season, over 200 young people participated as cast or crew members and almost 9,000 people enjoyed Encore’s performances.

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.

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.

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.

Transportation will be provided for all camp sessions upon acceptance and camp session assignment, according to your cohort and home city location. Contact ELG to find out which camp session we have reserved for you.
