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 to 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. Hathaway Brown is a peanut-free environment, so we ask your help by trying to eliminate any nut products from your child’s lunch. Thank you in advance for your cooperation in our effort to keep every camper safe and healthy.
Movement: Campers continue to practice moving their bodies in new and creative ways. They are letting their creativity flow through their limbs!
Lanyard: Campers used their understanding of the basic box and barrel stitches to work on more creative and complicated stitches. Popular stitches include the Corkscrew, DNA, and
Duckland: This week we read the touching story Duck about Duck who can’t fly and takes care of a lost Duckling. Then, we made our own Ducklings out of paper, pipe cleaners, fuzz,
Fairyland: The fairies were on vacation this week for the holiday, but groups could still follow the pirate map to find their pet rocks.
Mermaids: The mermaids did not find the pirate’s treasure, so they had to walk the plank or get tattoos as their punishment. The campers chose getting tattoos, and their legs ended up looking like real mermaid scales!
Urban Adventures: Campers went on their first off-campus field trip this week. They journeyed to Solon Freeway Lanes and had a bowling party. Many of the girls enjoyed travelling back in time to their younger days and used the bumpers while they bowled.
Edible Concoctions: This week, campers made a classic and delicious snack mix: puppy chow. Chex cereal is combined with powdered sugar and chocolate to form an easy to make snack.
Challenge: The challenge this week was the Wild Woozy. Older campers have been doing challenges high up in the trees. So far, they have completed the Burma Bridge and the Two Line. This week, they moved on to the Cat Walk, which is a log suspended between two trees about 35 feet off the ground. Wow!
Improv: In Improv this week, campers created mystery bag stories. Using the random items from a paper bag, campers had to create a story that made sense and was inspired by these items.
Games: Tag is a classic game and this week campers played two different versions of tag: amoeba tag and wizard tag. I think these will become new camp favorites!
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.
Discovery: Discovery class was on vacation this week because of the July 4 th holiday!
Ink: Younger campers practiced making their letters of the alphabet using dots with paint. For the older campers, they created name art and went on an exciting scavenger hunt.
Friendship bracelets: The stitch this week campers tried to master was the Chinese Ladder. While working on this stitch, campers discussed the question, “How to Make a New Friend?”
Spa: Campers made squishy projects this week in Spa! They made dish soap putty and a classic favorite: Flubber!
Art: The theme in art this week was flowers. Campers made flowers out of coffee filters and water colors. Then, they decorated flower pots in which to put them. So beautiful!
Reclaim: The focus of this class is upcycling, which takes gently used or discarded materials and gives them a new life. This week, campers made their own beads out of paper. These beads are just waiting to be turned into beautiful jewelry!
Kindergarten: Some of the kindergartner’s favorite activities this week included going to the pool, participating in Movement class, making Fluber, and making a shaving cream craft!
The three-year olds (France and Italy): The theme this week was lady bugs! Campers learned all about lady bugs by reading book, singing songs, and even making paper lady bugs. The special snack this week was homemade popsicles.
The four-year olds (Japan and India): Campers in the four-year old groups participated in a variety of activities this week. Favorites included decorating turtles, making trail mix, dancing in the music room, and reading lots of Pete the Cat.
