During the last week of the Rec-PAC Summer Program, campers
traditionally take part in some special event to better their
community. Rec-PAC Gives Back projects have included writing letters to
soldiers, cleaning up school areas, collecting blankets for the
homeless and collecting food donations. This year, campers and staff
hope to help put a stop to bullying in Fairfax County by showing that
"WE ALL HAVE HEART!"
Guinness World Records has approved this attempt at breaking the old
record of 554 heart-shaped hand gestures, and Rec-PAC organizers say
the effort will mean more to these kids than a record. It will mean
that they all worked together to do something great.
On July 23, 2015 at the Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Virginia,
Rec-PAC campers, staff and chaperones joined in an attempt to break the
Guinness World Record. There were 1249 participants and 42
volunteers ranging from FCPS teachers, FCPS Bus drivers, Fairfax County
Police Officers, Fairfax County Fire and Rescue, and local residents.
Rec-PAC (Pretty Awesome Children), operated by Fairfax County Park
Authority, is a six week structured recreation program with emphasis on
leisure skills designed for elementary school children.
Participants will have an opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of
activities such as: fun and fitness, indoor and outdoor games, team
sports, nature, crafts, storytelling, sports festivals, talent shows
and supervised play sessions. Each location has a ratio of 1 staff
person to 18 participants.
