HBBH Newsletter- Week 3
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.
Start to plan ahead for Lip Sync! You are invited to attend the annual Lip Sync performance on the last day of camp, Thursday, July 23rd. The performance will begin at 2:00pm, so you should arrive around 1:45pm to ensure you are here for the start of the performance.
If you have a camper in the EC, Pre-K or Kindergarten groups, come to the annual picnic on Thursday, July 16th from 11:30 to 12:30 in the Atrium.
Music: Campers continued to explore the magical world of music. They engaged with different musical instruments, songs, and used movement to express themselves, too.
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: This week, we read the book Sitting Ducks, about ducks being created in a factory run by alligators and how an unlikely friendship between a duck and an alligator helps free the ducks from Ducktown. We then did a relay race that simulated the book’s plot.
Fairyland: Campers continued to listen to the riveting story of Ellen and Sophie and their adventures in Wish Away Woods. The fairies in training also learned some new spells, including the Invisibility Spell. Parents, don’t fret if you can’t find your camper; they are probably just practicing this new spell!
Mermaids: The Mermaids used their imagination this week. They swam in the magical waters and retrieved some buried treasure. Until they described what they hoped to find in their treasure, they could not reveal the real treasure. When they finally opened their treasure, they found beautiful mermaid hair!
Urban Adventures: The older campers spent a day at the bakery this week! They made and decorated cupcakes. For the decorations, they used marshmallows and sugar to create beautiful floral designs.
Edible Concoctions: This week, campers made delicious cinnamon and sugar tortilla chips. Simple and tasty!
Challenge: Campers continued to work on building trust among their groups and participated in fun and difficult activities, including the Wild Woozy, Mohawk Walk, and All Aboard.
Improv: In Improv this week, older campers played the Dating Game. In this game, campers assumed the identity of a potential date for a bachelorette, and through a series of questions the bachelorette had to guess the identity of her dating candidates. Younger campers read the story Ten Little Monkeys and then acted out a version of the story, which they called Ten Little Campers.
Games: This week was campers’ choice in games. Some of the favorite games were Capture the Flag and Mister Todd. Younger campers played a version of the classic game Red Rover.
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’s favorite games include Yahtzee and the Game of Life. Campers worked on learning and following the rules for the games, as well as game-playing etiquette. Younger campers are loving the game Guess Who?
Crafts: In honor of Summerween this week, we made a Sparkly Gooey Monster in a cup. It was slimy and scary and awesome!
Ink: Campers participated in a variety of games and activities focusing on letters and words. Some of the activities included Letter Bingo, creative spelling games, and making handprint giving trees.
Spa: Campers pampered their lips this week by making chocolate mint lip gloss. Campers had a choice of adding spearmint or peppermint into their gloss. Which one did your camper choose? Can you tell just by smelling it?
Art: It was a busy and creative week in art! The kindergartners did bubble painting, while the first graders made their own sketch books. The second graders decoupaged flowers, and the rest of the campers painted water colors from outdoor sketches they made last week.
Recycle: In Recycle this week, campers made creations using Modge Podge and water bottles. Many campers chose to make vases with these materials, while other campers came up with other creations. The youngest campers made beautiful flowers out of egg cartons.
Kindergarten (Mouse Trap): The kindergartners continued to have fun at camp. They participated in a wide variety of activities, and focused on listening to and following directions. We especially enjoyed playing with the parachute during games!
The three-year olds (Candyland and Chutes and Ladders): This week the focus for the three-year olds was seeds, bugs, and America’s birthday. We read books about planting seeks and even planted our own seeds! Other books we read were about July 4th and we made our own firework art using paint and glitter. The special snack this week was mud pies. What a fun week!
The four-year olds (Hi-Ho! Cherry-O and Don’t Break the Ice): The theme this week for the four-year olds was red, white, and blue, in honor of July 4th. We made our own firework art using straws, paint, and glitter. Another festive art project was making finger-paint flags. A highlight from the week was this week’s storytelling, which was all about owls. Campers got to compare three different kinds of owls, and it was fascinating!
