On Saturday May 12 from 9:30-10:30 a.m. volunteer Marshie Boswell will offer a family yoga class in the ARCPark suitable for all ages and levels (including parents). This is a goofy, fun class designed to use songs and games to teach the basics of yoga to children on their level. The typical age range for this class is 3-10 years old but anyone who can follow basic yoga moves and is willing to be silly will love it!
Winter has overstayed its welcome so we wanted to bring summer fun a little early!

Greater Richmond ARC’s Camp Baker is a full-service, handicap-equipped retreat located on 22 wooded acres near Pocahontas State Park in southern Chesterfield County. Camp Baker has been serving individuals with special needs since 1929 when it was a respite for undernourished children known as W.W. Baker Summer Camp. In 1957, ownership was transferred to Chesterfield County under the care of Greater Richmond ARC and renamed Camp Baker to serve children with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
