HBBH Newsletter- Week 1
Please stay in your cars during pick-up time and a camp faculty member will come to your car. If you need to get out of your car, please park legally do not disrupt the traffic flow.
Also, please make sure you send your child to camp with a lunch, if not purchasing one from the school, and a water bottle labeled with your child’s name.
A friendly reminder: picture day is Tuesday! Be sure to have your camper wear his/her camp shirt on Tuesday to be ready for picture day.
Music: Younger campers are exploring various vocal sounds and musical movement through songs, instruments, and musical games. Older campers experienced the joy of music by participating in a variety of musical activities.
Lanyard: We focused on mastering the box and barrel stitches this week. Some girls used their skills and creativity to work on more complicated lanyards, such as the Corkscrew, DNA, and many more!
Duckland: This week we read Make Way for Ducklings to get us in the “ducky” mood. Then, we made our own Mallard family using our hands and thumbs and paint. It was messy and quacktastic!
Fairyland: The fairies in training went on their first adventure this week to find their very own fairy dust. The girls were covered in magical dust by the end of their outing!
Mermaids: The mermaids swam in a relay to find their own sea creatures. After that, they painted their legs to look like mermaid tails. Between the glitter and scales, their legs really looked like mermaid tails!
Urban Adventures: This week we focused on team building activities to develop great relationships with each other. We made our own coffee filter art, then used these as accessories on our Project Runway outfits, which we made using materials such as garbage bags, paper, and tape. We also prepared some materials to make jellyfish sculptures at a later date.
Edible Concoctions: This week, we made pumpkin muffins using spice cake mix and canned pumpkin. Who knew this simple recipe could be so delicious!
Challenge: This week was focused on team-building activities and developing trust among each group. We did this through fun ice breakers and name games. We also started to develop skills that we will use on the low ropes course.
Improv: In Improv this week, we worked on using our bodies and voices. We played a game called Show Me, Tell Me. For the Show Me part, campers used only movement to communicate, whereas for the Tell Me part, they could only use their voice and no movement.
Games: Despite the rain, we played a ton of games this week! There were a wide variety of game played, including kickball, playing with the parachute, and Alphabet Actors.
Table Top Challenges: In Table Top Challenges, campers have access to various games, including cards, puzzles, math games, collaborative games, and board games. The focus this week was being able to work together during a game and trying games for the first time.
Crafts: We welcomed in the summer by planting our own sunflowers and making paper sunflowers. So beautiful!
Ink: In Ink this week, campers made name art, where they created pictures out of their names. We also used our creativity during some progressive story telling.
Spa: We used the wonderful scent of fresh oranges to make relaxing sweet orange bath salts. It will make your bath smell like an orange grove!
Art: Campers used their creativity to create beautiful textiles. They drew and painted on fabric. Look for their gorgeous works of art coming home!
Recycle: The focus of this class is upcycling, which takes gently used or discarded materials and gives them a new life. Campers used a variety of materials and channeled their creativity and self-expression to create collages describing themselves.
Kindergarten (Mouse Trap): The Mouse Trap group is off to a great start! This week, we made frames for the dads for Father’s day. We also made a variety of crafts and spent a lot of time getting to know each other.
The three-year olds (Candyland and Chutes and Ladders): Wow, this week went by so quickly! We focused on getting to know each other and learning the names of the campers in our group. We ended the week making delicious popsicles. Yum!
The four-year olds (Hi-Ho! Cherry-O and Don’t Break the Ice): This week we focused on studying insects. We read stories, made craft, and completed investigations all focusing on insects. We also looked for insects in the garden! Our special snack this week was Worms in Dirt. It looked so real!
