A beleaguered summer camp that teaches low-income girls about finance and self-defense has been thrown a life saver as it received about $10,000 from the operator of Glendale Memorial Medical Center and $1,000 from Soroptimists International. The money ensures the camp will run again this year, following recent scares prompted by funding and enrollment issues . “We are thrilled we have support in the community to help us continue to offer Camp Rosie,” said Denise Miller, chair of the Commission on the Status of Women, a city board that organizes the program for at-risk girls, in an interview Monday.

MONTROSE - Normally a pitcher and shortstop, Christopher Arzoumanian stood in center field tracking down fly balls at Montrose Park on Tuesday. He caught two fly balls in a row before racing to right-center field to make a tumbling catch. For his effort, Arzoumanian collected several grass stains on his gray jersey and applause from his teammates. It was a sign that Arzoumanian, 12, was getting comfortable learning a new position while taking part in the third annual Falcon Summer Baseball Camp.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - After conducting the first two years of the annual Tornadoes Baseball Camp, Joe Cotti decided to make some major changes to the event's structural layout. In the past, Cotti, Hoover High's baseball coach, shoe-horned facets from hitting to pitching to defense into a week-long session and would repeat the process for another five weeks. While it served its purpose, Cotti explored other ways to make the camp more attractive to current and future participants.

GLENDALE - With 100 kids hustling between 10 skill stations at the blow of a whistle, the Falcons Summer Baseball Camp ran like a fine-tuned machine. “You know how we do things here,” camp creator and Crescenta Valley High baseball Coach Phil Torres said. While the camp runs like clockwork, it doesn't come without some actual work. PHOTOS: Falcon Summer Baseball Camp at Stengel Field “My high school kids are here every morning,” Torres said. “Sunday we spent about five hours just cleaning the park, mowing and watering because we want it nice when the campers come every morning and see it.” The event serves as a fundraiser for the CV baseball program and nearly has a two-to-one camper-to-coach ratio.

Eight-year-old Marianna Mkrtichian showed no fear Thursday during a final rehearsal before a crowd of about 30 youngsters and teachers at Glendale Unified's summer camp. She hopped and skipped around stage, all while a blue hula hoop swirled around her right ankle. It's not one of the core academic subjects per se, but talent week at the district's Early Education & Extended Learning Program helps students become more comfortable in the classroom and among their friends, organizers said.

LA CAÑADA - Its three-pronged formula for teaching the game of soccer certainly wasn't new, but also wasn't close to getting old in the St. Francis Summer Soccer Camp's 24th year. A group of about 45 campers tested their knowledge and skill not only on the soccer pitch, but in the classroom and gym at the weeklong clinic. It was hosted by director and Golden Knights Coach Glen Appels on St. Francis' campus from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday. The approach was effective for the diverse group, which ranged from boys and girls 8 to 18 years old and from beginners to players on Appels' varsity squad.

A summer camp created by Glendale's Commission on the Status of Women to empower girls now needs some encouragement of its own. Due to a lack of interest in Camp Rosie, organizers this week said they may cancel a session that is due to begin on Monday. PHOTOS: Self-defense lessons at Camp Rose in Glendale Just 18 girls had signed up for Camp Rosie's first session, which ends this week and offered 30 spots. As of Tuesday, 12 girls had signed up for the second session, slated for next week, but if 18 girls aren't signed up by Friday, the commission may cancel it. The free camp was established by the commission seven years ago to teach girls ages 12 to 18 about financial literacy, self-defense and maintaining healthy relationships.

All the happy children in the Glendale Unified School District will soon be out of school for the summer. Looking forward to sleeping in, playing outside with friends, going to the pool or perhaps to the beach. Maybe some will enroll in a summer camp of some sort. Hope springs eternal for the youth, right? Not so fast now. What the kids don't know and I don't suggest we tell them, and what most of the parents don't know is that these same healthy and happy children and youth will be walking into a toxic classroom in the fall.

Two weeks ago Paula Jaramillo had only a vague idea what mapalé looked like. But on Thursday, the 10-year-old put on an energetic performance of the traditional Colombian dance for a dozen camp mates and a handful of parents. “I put it on my TV and I looked at the people [dancing] and I said, 'I am going to do that,'” said Paula as she flounced around the room in a ruffled skirt and dangly earrings. The act was the sort of culturally-inspired, self-motivated learning that characterizes the Spanish-language summer camp, which is taking place at Incarnation Community Center in Glendale.
