As is often the case in this area, we jumped from the briefest of springs directly
into summer! There's always plenty of fun to go around; here are three hot ideas
from local folks.
If you have a little girl or boy who loves to be active, consider one of three week-
long dance camps hosted by
Virginia Dance Center. "Big Hair, Don't Care,"
focusing on ballet and creative movement activities, will be held July 3August
3 for children 35 years. "Island Princess" also focuses on ballet and creative
activities and includes an introduction to jazz and tap. It will be held August 610
for children 47 years. And fi nally, "Super Heroes" is designed for children 69
years and includes ballet, jazz, tap, and creative activities.
All camps run from 9:00 a.m.noon during their specifi c weeks and include a
demonstration on the last day. Tuition for all camps is $125/student. To learn more,
Summer is practically synonymous with miniature golf, and you don't have to
travel far to fi nd a great course. Head over to the
Magic Putting Place on Mathis
Avenue in Manassas to explore all 36 holes of miniature golf. Choose between the
Windmill or Magic Castle courses, both of which are beautifully landscaped with
active fountain ponds.
Players enjoy family-friendly music thanks to the sound system, and you can even
play at night since both courses are well lit. Need a snack? Stop by the 19th Hole
Snack Bar for a quick bag of chips or refreshing drink. And to celebrate a fun round
of mini golf, head next door to Nathan's Dairy Bar for a delicious ice cream treat.

And if you literally want to dive into summer, head to
located within Ben Lomond Park in Manassas. The littlest guests can frolic in the
children's area, complete with bubblers, fountains, and tiny slides while teens and
adults can check out the adventure walks and various slides. Spend time in the
sand at Big Kahuna Beach, and keep your energy up with a variety of delicious
treats available at Paradise Pizza, Beach Break, or the Snack Shack!
Although the park is currently only open Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00 a.m.
6:00 p.m., weekend hours extend to 7:00 p.m. beginning on June 16, and from
June 18August 24 it's open weekdays from 11:00 a.m.6:00 p.m. Group rates,
corporate events, and pavilion rentals are available too! To learn more, call
