Teen Express features creative and challenging fun for your older camper this summer. This camp meets at
Lake Marion Community Center from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with an extended-day option of 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Each week is filled with fun projects and lots of games, sports, and activities. We’ll also spend up to four
afternoons at the Lake Marion pool. In addition, each week we’ll go on an exciting field trip! Sessions
are one-week in length in order to provide busy teens with maximum flexibility to participate in camp
when they want to. Be sure to check out our weekly newsletter for details on field trips, along with other
special activities. Campers will need to bring their own non-perishable lunch each day. All fees for field
trips, including admission and transportation, are included in the registration fee. However, you may
send additional money along with your child for extras such as snacks and gift shops. On long field
trips, you will need to send money with your child for dinner.
Extended-day fee is $20 per camper for weeks 1, 2, and 4 through 8; $15 for week 3.
Non-Village residents pay an additional $10 per week for extended-day.

Volunteering as a Counselor-In-Training at summer day camp or as an aide at swim lessons is a great way for adolescents and young
adults to develop new skills, make new friends, fulfill the Student Service Learning requirement and even help shape their ideas about
goals for the future.

Each summer the Montgomery Village Foundation Department of Recreation, Parks and Culture operates a Counselor-In-Training
(C.I.T.) program in conjunction with four day camps, North Creek Drop-In Center and Swim Lesson Program. Successful candidates

Center and the Swim Lesson program. C.I.T.’s must be 15 years of age to volunteer at Camp Teen Express.

To be considered for a C.I.T. position, candidates must submit an application by Monday, April 25. The form can be obtained at the
MVF Office, 10120 Apple Ridge Road, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday or online at www.mont
gomeryvillage.com; from the RECREATION & EVENTS menu, choose 2011 Summer Camp Guide, then CIT Application. Eligible
candidates will be invited to a group interview in May. If selected, C.I.T.’s must make a minimum commitment of at least three days
per week during each session that they participate and attend training on before camp is
scheduled to begin. Participants are responsible for completing the required paperwork with
their schools if they wish to obtain SSL hours.

Preschool-Age Programs (Fall Session)
Creative Playtime (for ages 3 and 4): MVF’s recreational and supplementary educational programs for pre-school age children held
at Whetstone Community Center, under the direction of Kathi Hufnagel, are a great way to enhance your child’s social, emotional and
physical development. Your child will explore the excitement of music, drama, movement, crafts, nature and playtime throughout the
school year.
Creative Playtime 3’s is an introductory preschool age recreational program intended to provide three-year-olds with a gentle atmo-
sphere of acceptance where children can develop social, emotional and physical skills without pressure. Using tools such as colors,
shapes, numbers, the calendar and the weather, children are exposed to basic skills essential to school success.
Creative Playtime 4’s provides an atmosphere that allows more time to delve into subjects of interest. Activities based on themes,
which include lessons involving cooking, science, math, language enrichment, art, music, literature and social studies, help children
develop the cognitive, physical and social skills essential to kindergarten success.

• Registration fee includes a $25 non-refundable administrative fee.
• Children must be completely toilet-trained the first day of class.
• Children must be three years for the Creative Playtime 3’s, and four years for the Creative Playtime 4’s by Sept. 1, 2011.

Registration Information
How to Register
Registration for Montgomery Village Foundation (MVF) summer camps and the Fall 2011 Creative Playtime programs
begins Monday, Feb. 7 and continues until the programs are filled. A program will be cancelled if there is not sufficient
registration two days prior to the start of the program.

Register:
•	In	person	at the MVF Office, 10120 Apple Ridge Road, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
•	By	mail	to MVF, 10120 Apple Ridge Road, Montgomery Village, MD 20886-1000. Please use the Activity Registration
  Form found on page 9 of this insert. Be sure to include participant’s name, address, telephone numbers, birth date,
  name/number code of activity and check made payable to MVF or all relevant credit card information (Visa, MasterCard
  and Discover).
•	After	hours	registration may be dropped off in the locked drop box located in the parking lot of the MVF Office. Visa,
  MasterCard and Discover are accepted.

  Fax: 301-990-7071.

Important Facts about Registration
• Program registration is complete once staff has verified an opening in the session and when a receipt has been issued
  to the registrant. Due to state regulations, which are set for the children’s safety, there are no exceptions to campers
  being the required age on the first day of camp.
• Full payment is due at the time of registration. However, for those who register for all sessions of any MVF camp at the
  same time, a deposit equal to the cost of half of those sessions will hold a space(s) at camp. All camp fees must be paid
  in full by Friday, May 13. If final payment is not received by the due date, your camper’s place may be offered to someone
  on the waiting list. NOTE: There is a $35 charge for returned checks.
• All camper-related forms are due Friday, May 13. State code requires MVF to maintain these forms on location whenever
  camp is in session. Accordingly, children will not be admitted to any MVF camp until those documents are received and
  reviewed by MVF staff.
• MVF camps are offered exclusively in pre-determined one-week (Teen Express), or two-week (Tiny Feet, Soaring Stars,
  Racing Wind) sessions. Prospective campers may only register for the sessions that are offered by MVF, regardless
  of how many days they plan on attending the camp(s)

Camp Refund Policy
Except in the case of sudden illness, cancellations/requests for refund must be received in writing and prior to the first
day of the camp session in question in order to be considered.
Refunds will be made only under the following circumstances:
1. Cancellation of a program by MVF.
2. Extended illness (doctor’s certificate required).
3. Permanent relocation of participant out of Montgomery Village.
4. Failure to meet camp/class prerequisites.
5. Changes made to the meeting time/location by MVF which prohibit participant’s attendance.

Refund requests which are based on personal reasons, including vacationing, will only be granted if MVF is able to fill
the requestor’s spot in his or her camp with another paying participant. Absolutely no refunds will be granted once half of
the program session has been concluded—no exceptions.

Except in the case that MVF cancels or changes the time/location of a program, a $25 non-refundable deposit included
in the registration fee will be held by MVF in the event that a refund is granted.

Inter/Intra-Camp Transfers
Requests from participants to transfer from one MVF camp to another MVF camp or to a different session of the same
MVF camp will be accommodated if there are openings available. A $10 fee will be charged for this service.
For further information, please call 301-948-0110, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
