HBBH Newsletter- Week 4
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.
Many of you have been requesting information to contact the Shepherds about babysitting your children. We are compiling a babysitting list and it will be coming out to you soon!
Movement: In movement this week, campers enjoyed free dancing. Additionally, campers used streamers and used them to write their names in the air. Many groups requested time to work on their lip sync routine, also.
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 many more!
Duckland: This week we read the book I Wish I Had Duck Feet. Then, we made our very own duck feet and duck crowns. We looked like real ducks!
Fairyland: This week, the fairies were very kind as they found and adopted orphan animals. They were so sad to see these cute animals abandoned, but very happy to be able to give them a good home!
Mermaids: This week, the mermaids were very kind as they found and adopted orphan animals. They were so sad to see these cute animals abandoned, but very happy to be able to give them a good home!
Urban Adventures: Campers went on their second off-campus field trip this week. They journeyed to Camp High to go canoeing. The girls travelled five miles in a canoe in the sun and heat. Their determination, athleticism, and perseverance was amazing!
Edible Concoctions: Campers made their own hummus this week and enjoyed it with crackers.
Challenge: This week, the fourth and fifth grades completed Team Triangle, the Giant Swing Challenge, and All Aboard. The sixth, seventh, and eighth graders worked on different climbing elements, including the Jee Bee Lunge and Two-Way Burma Bridge. They are doing great at completing all of the challenges they are faced with!
Improv: It was all about coming up with creative lies this week in Improv! Campers played the game two truths and a lie, where their peers had to guess which of the three things they told was a lie. Then, campers were given a prompt, and they had to come up with a creative and fantastical explanation for it.
Games: This week, the focus in games was Simon Says. First, the campers played the traditional Simon Says game. Then, they played a different version of the game called the Cow Game. Faster paced than the traditional game and using your full body makes for a fun and goofy looking game!
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: This week’s theme was a Mexican fiesta! Girls made homemade salsa, guacamole, tortilla chips, and honey limeade. Everything was delicious! Campers also made different Mexican-themed crafts and enjoyed fiesta music. Olé!
Ink: The youngest campers had a great time feeding the letter monster this week in Ink! Other campers played the popular head band game where they had to use clues to help their fellow campers guess the word posted on their head.
Friendship bracelets: Instead of focusing on friendship bracelets this week, campers mixed it up and made friendship hair clips. The discussion this week was about the important parts of a good friendship.
Spa: This week campers relaxed with the soothing aroma of lavender. They made Lavender Bubbling Bath Salts.
Art: This week, campers made story art. First, they made a big painting and then cut it up. Afterward, they stuck the pieces on popsicle sticks and used their section of the painting to tell a story. Creativity at its finest!
Reclaim: The youngest campers made jewelry from the beads they created last week. The older campers harnessed their creativity and used a variety of materials from reclaim to make their own unique creations.
Kindergarten: The kindergartners enjoyed many different activities this week. One of their favorites was making delicious popsicles out of orange, mango, and peach juice. Another activity they enjoyed was playing with shaving cream. Some other favorite classes were Fairyland and Duckland, too!
The three-year olds (France and Italy): What is slimy, lives under rocks, and in the dirt? If you say worms you are correct! Our focus this week was on worms. We read stories about worms, read stories; drew worms
The four-year olds (Japan and India): This week, the campers made bracelets, alphabet monsters, and miniature pies. We also had a special treat and ate lunch in the big atrium! So fun.
