HBBH Newsletter- Week 2

Camp Notes:

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.

 

 

Music:  Campers explored the magical music-making qualities of a variety of objects and materials.  They interacted with xylophones, scarves, and many other items to figure out how music can be made and the tones of various objects.

 

Lanyard:  Girls are mastering their basic lanyard skills, and some girls are challenging themselves by working on more complicated lanyards, such as the Corkscrew, DNA, and many more!

 

Duckland:  We read, I Wish That I Had Duck Feet, and then made our very own duck feet.  Some groups even made their own duck wings.  What a transformation!

 

Fairyland: The fairies in training went on a quest for magical leaves.  They then took these magical leaves and turned them into fairy wands.  So magical!

 

Mermaids:  Wednesday was National Fairy Day.  In honor of this day, campers went searching for fairy and mermaid treasures.  They had to brave the magical, yet treacherous waters to retrieve the treasure receptacles and then open them to reveal their magical treasure. 

 

Urban Adventures:  Campers spent a day at the spa this week!  They pampered themselves with manicures and pedicures.  The girls also spent some time participating in team-building games and activities to continue to build trust within the group.

 

Edible Concoctions:  Campers made Flubber this week.  Flubber is a classic camp favorite and campers loved playing with this interesting concoction.

 

Challenge:  This week, each group continued to work on building trust among the campers.  The girls participated in some low ropes activities, such as All Aboard and Walk the Plank.  These were fun, yet challenging activities!

 

Improv:  Younger campers spent time making animal puppets out of paper bags and then used these puppets to create improvised plays. Older campers chose an idea from a hat and had to instantly improvise a play based on this topic. 

 

Games:  Older campers enjoyed playing Sharks and Minnows this week, while younger campers played Guess the Animals.  Clearly, there was an animal theme this week!

 

Table Top Challenges:  In Table Top Challenges, campers have access to various games, including cards, puzzles, math games, collaborative games, and board games.  This week, some new games were added and some became instant favorites.  The newest game, Hedbandz, has been a great game for all age groups and using team work and creativity.  The Game of Life was another popular game this week, and provided a great opportunity to work on collaboration.  Some campers learned some math and dice games, such as Sudoku.

         

Crafts: In crafts this week, campers went outside and had fun with bubbles.  They had access to a variety of bubble wands and other items out of which they could create bubbles.  Some of the bubbles they created looked incredible!

 

Ink: Campers participated in a variety of games and activities focusing on letters and words.  Younger campers played letter bingo, while some older campers played Hedbandz, which built their descriptive abilities and vocabulary.  The oldest campers played a game where they tossed scrabble tiles into a bucket and then had to make words out of them.  This was physically and mentally challenging game!

 

Spa:  At the spa this week, campers create the world’s best odor-fighting lemon sugar foot scrub.  This scrub is perfect to refresh tired and stinky feet after participating in all the campers’ favorite summer activities.

 

Art:  It was a busy week in art!  The youngest campers made circle drawings, while other campers made their own game boards and spinners, and others sketched the clouds and outdoor scenery, which they will later turn into water colors.  Look for their gorgeous works of art coming home!

 

Recycle:  Campers finished their all about me collages this week.  They are also being challenged to use their creativity to come up with unique and innovative creations using water bottles and egg cartons.

 

Kindergarten (Mouse Trap):  The kindergartners have been having a great time this week participating in a wide variety of activities.  The campers are especially loving the pool and sprinklers.  They just love anything having to do with water!

 

The three-year olds (Candyland and Chutes and Ladders):  This week, the three-year olds participated in an exploration of the ocean and all of its inhabitants.  Campers also made crabs out of hand prints.  For a special snack this week, they made Jell-O and added fish to it.  It looked like a fish bowl! 

 

The four-year olds (Hi-Ho! Cherry-O and Don’t Break the Ice):  The four-year olds participated in an exploration of the ocean and all of its inhabitants.  Campers listened to the book “Fishy Facts” and learned great information about ocean life.  They also made beautiful fish tanks out of paper plates and a variety of other materials.  For a special snack, they made a delicious and “fishy” gold fish trail mix.
