For every princess who has dreamed of attending a ball, spend an evening creating lasting memories at the A10 Father-Daughter Dance. There will be elegant dancing, dessert, fun crafts, and a photo of your evening to cherish. All girls, preschool through the 5th grade, are invited to bring their dads (or special male person in their lives) to this event.

This Shenandoah National Park hike is near Old Rag Mountain, but less well known. Depending on the number of hikers, carpooling may be necessary. Total hike length is 8.5 miles with an elevation gain of 2,210 ft. Not for younger children, but moderately experienced hikers should be fine. Will pass small waterfalls and pools, so a quick refreshing dip is possible coming down from the Bear Church Rock overlook. Pack a lunch and plenty of water (2-3 liters). The drive to the trail head is ~2 hours from Richmond. Leave from Gaskins Road parking lot (Gaskins and Mayland Drive). More info about trail HERE.

Volunteers needed to assist with a fun water day for the kids in summer camp at CHAT. The plan is to have 9 stations with different water events (balloon toss and other water related events). There will be about 65-80 third-eighth grader kids. Volunteers will work at the stations or be floaters/runners to make sure everything runs smoothly. We'll also be providing snacks for the kids. This is a great way to show Richmond that Area 10 is FOR THE CITY!

Let's see if we have what it takes to ESCAPE!
Escape Room RVA is a puzzle based room where you are "locked in" and try to see if you can find your way out in 1 hour. I've reserved 2 rooms for the afternoon:
• Glitch in the Matrix (may cause seizures). www.escaperoomrva.com/glitch-in-the-matrix/
• Judgement at the Pearly Gates. www.escaperoomrva.com/judgementescaperoom/
Both rooms have a max capacity of 10 people. Even if you don't think you are into puzzles, you'd be surprised! Each room has a variety of problems to solve; some simple and some not so much.
Cost is $20.00 per person and is payable on the 17th.

Come on out to Joesph Bryan Park for some disc golf. It's a great way to get outdoors, and best of all it's FREE! All skill levels are welcome.
If you've always wanted to try it, but don't have any discs, Play It Again Sports is a great place to pick up cheap used discs.

This 8-week ( - 8/2916) study will go through Stormie Omartian's The Power of a Praying Woman, in which we will look at emphasizing prayer in key areas of our lives-relationships, health, emotions, work, and more. You do not necessarily need to buy the book to attend. We also understand that summer often means travels, so it's ok if you need to miss sometimes! Childcare is provided. (Women attending with children will be expected to contribute $25 for childcare.)
Leaders- Jenni C. and Rebecca B.
See Richmond as you never have before...sliding down the street on a giant slip and slide! Slide the City is a family friendly slip-and-slide water party event. There will be live music, food, drinks, water, and of course the biggest slip and slide ever to hit asphalt.
We will ride during the 2-4pm window. Jenni and Wade will be there early to grab some lunch as well so feel free to join us.

Hike Old Rag - it's 9 miles with some rock scrambling! It ain't easy, but it is fun and has some amazing views!! Visit site HERE.
No real "cost" for the event except we may stop off for coffee on the way up and maybe some ice cream on the way back! This hike is not an easy hike. Kids are welcome but know that there are spots that are tough to climb for little legs!
