SPECIAL NEEDS CAMPERS: Camp Reed is not accredited as a special needs camp. If your camper/participant has special health needs (including but not limited to: diabetes, cardiac illness, severe asthma, seizures, serious behavioral issues, or severe allergies), you must contact the camp director for advance clearance.

On a case by case basis, we consult with parent/guardian and our camp nurse to determine if accommodation and appropriate care is available. If we are unable to accommodate a special need, we do our best to provide information as to other camps that may be better suited for the particular situation.

CAMP INSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITIES OFFERED:
Wilderness/Nature, and more.

CAMP LOCATION: Located just thirty miles north of Spokane, Camp Reed is set on close to 600 acres on beautiful Fan Lake. Camp Reed is a place that allows a �kid to be a kid,� experience life in the beautiful outdoors, and the opportunity to learn from our excellent staff and rich program activities. Our staff strives to make sure that each child feels special and comes away with the values and experiences that they may treasure for a lifetime.

CAMP FACILITIES: � Year-round lake view retreat
� 2 lodge bunk rooms (each sleep 20)
� 24 modern cabins (each sleeps 10 � 12)
� Full meal service available
� Multipurpose lodge
� Hiking trails
� Archery
� Meeting areas
� Commercial kitchen
� Climbing tower
� Excellent challenge course

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: A camper�s time at camp is divided between unit time, cabin activities, free-choice time and all-camp events. Each day we have flagpole gatherings, chapel, waterfront activities, cabin clean up, work areas and siesta after lunch. Day and night hikes are extremely popular.

Once a week, weather permitting, each cabin joins with another for a sleep-out. This often includes a long hike (1 � 7 miles) and a night out under the stars. Younger cabins stay close to camp, while older campers explore further away from camp. Backpacks or bags to carry sleeping bags and water bottles are helpful. The two oldest cabins may have the opportunity to bike about 30 miles from camp for their overnight.

We have three campfires with songs and crazy staff skits with a special �sticks� campfire on the last evening. One night is reserved for a carnival and a camp dance. These events conclude around 9:30pm, and lights are out between 10:30 and 11:30pm. Wake up bell is at 8:30am.

Free-choice activities include arts & crafts, archery, climbing, sports, waterfront and wilderness activities. We also offer plenty of new and unique activities each day such as turtle hunts, random parades, stream hikes, boat races and a �Shark Swim� across the lake. This is a great time for campers to be with friends in different cabins.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: The Camp Reed Counselor in Training (CIT) two-week program is designed for 15 & 16 year olds that will be entering their sophomore year of high school in Fall 2014. This very popular two week program consists of a Work Week and a Bike Trip. It is designed to provide a comprehensive youth experience where each individual is encouraged to reach his/her full potential.

The philosophy behind the Camp Reed CIT program is founded in an outdoor experience where the participant is challenged physically, mentally, socially and spiritually. It is fun, challenging and life changing!

CIT Leaders are experienced and mature Camp Reed staff who utilize group dynamics to encourage each participant to learn more about themselves and others in the group. They have the opportunity to work as a team as well as to practice leadership and group dynamic skills. This philosophy is the key to maintaining focus throughout the program�s entirety.

In order for the CIT program to accomplish its objective, each participant will be held to a high level of commitment and maturity. The CIT program is a transition for participants from camper to young adult. Expectations are higher in areas of personal responsibility, maturity and accountability. CIT Leaders will therefore treat CITs more like young adults than campers.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Camperships are available for any Camp Reed program - Mini Camp, Traditional Camp, CIT, and JC programs. We advise you to complete the campership process before registering your child for camp, as camperships are not guaranteed. For the complete process, visit: Our Camp Website Link: campreed.org

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): Camp Reed Family Camp is a great opportunity to bring the generations of your family together for fun, adventure and memories to last a lifetime. Activities are run by Camp Reed staff but parents are responsible for supervising their children.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: The Road Less Traveled as an organization was founded by Jim and Donna Stein in 1991, and has been successfully running safe, exciting, life-changing trips for teens ever since. Both Jim and Donna are still the current directors, and are integrally involved in every single aspect of the company. In the summer, they are on call 24/7, available both to parents as well as to our leaders in the field.

We are an ACA accredited organization with an impeccable track record. We believe in the process of accreditation. It allows us to compare our standards to other professionals in the industry. Our accreditation allows us to follow specific standards related to leader screening including use of application forms, reference checks, personal interviews, work history review, and background checks.

Many years ago, we were the first company serving young adults to require that all leaders have a Wilderness First Responder (WFR) medical certification. WFR training is far more advanced than standard first aid or wilderness first aid. In addition to this certification, we carry extensive first aid kits on all of our programs that include antibiotics and epinephrine. Contents, protocols, and standing orders are reviewed and updated every year by our Medical Director who is an MD.

Since our inception, RLT has been on the cutting edge of technological advances in communication. We began carrying Iridium satellite phones on all of our programs as soon as they were available. Today we continue to carry the latest in emergency communication systems. According to geographic location, programs are equipped with satellite phones, ground-to-air radios, and/or cellular phones providing the possibility of 24-hour access to medical help in case of emergency.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: We offer many need-based scholarships and financial aid packages. Visit Geography of Hope's website to learn more: Our Camp Website Link: www.geographyofhope.org

VIEW CAMP PHOTO

CAMP LOCATION: We are located on the campus of The Madeira School, overlooking the Potomac River. On Thursday nights, we camp out at Lake Fairfax Park in Reston, VA.

Daily transportation is provided by our fleet of purple buses, with stops at Bailey's Crossroads, Yorktown High School, West Falls Church metro, Dulles Town Center, Reston's Plaza America, Wolftrap, Friendship Heights metro, McLean Shopping Center, Forest Glen metro, and Pyle Middle School.

CAMP FACILITIES: Camp takes place outside, with a break for lunch overlooking the river. Indoor classrooms are available as rain/heat spaces. Thursday night campouts take place at a local lakeside campsite; we pitch tents and cook over a fire. Performances take place in a variety of theaters, camps, schools, and other venues, culminating in a final performance festival in our own amphitheater.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: At Traveling Players Ensemble’s camp, small troupes 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 which tours to several locations, thereby cultivating stronger, more adaptable and capable artists and individuals.

Traveling Players emphasizes a meaningful engagement with nature. Our unique day camp (Monday-Friday) features a campout every Thursday—when performers learn Leave No Trace camping techniques, to pitch tents and cook outdoors. In their final week, teens camp out close to their performance site—giving them the experience of wandering entertainers who carry their dinner, tent and props in their trusty pack. As artists and backpackers, 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.
