HBBH Newsletter- Week 6
Thank you so much for a great summer at camp! Have a fun and safe rest of the summer and we hope to see you next year.
Movement: What a great summer in Movement. The activity varied, depending on the group, but always included moving their bodies in new and fun ways. Some groups also wanted some time to practice their lip sync routine.
Lanyard: Campers used their skills from the summer to make their favorite stitches or to try something new and challenging. What great creations they made!
Duckland: During camp, we quacked, waddled, and even grew duck feet. But what we hadn’t done yet is swim like ducks! We took a trip to the “duck pond” and enjoyed playing in the water with rubber ducks and running through the sprinklers.
Fairyland: The fairies in training celebrated all their hard work this summer studying and finding the fairies magic by attending the Fairy Ball.
Mermaids: The mermaids had their final celebration this week. They could swim, paint their nails, and enjoy delicious treats prepared for them by the mermaids.
Urban Adventures: The campers ended the summer on a high! They fried marbles, made mock apple pie, went on a scavenger hunt that the fairies, mermaids, and pirates had prepared for them, and spent the entire afternoon in the pool.
Edible Concoctions: This week, some campers made Pie Cookies, while others made hummus and pita chips. A delicious way to end the summer!
Challenge: This week, the oldest campers took on a challenge called the Quadraphenia, and the fifth graders did The Cat Walk. The campers were amazing this summer!
Improv: There was no Improv the last week of camp.
Games: This week was campers’ choice. Each group chose the game(s) they wanted to play this week, after having learned so many this summer. One of the favorites was Capture the Flag!
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: For the final Discover class, campers did a variety of activities. They made Pixie Stick Lip Gloss, made beaded creations, used nail polish to decorate their nails, and made indoor s’mores.
Ink: Campers played a variety of games related to letters and words. One of the favorites, of course, was Bingo!
Friendship bracelets: Instead of focusing on one stitch this week, campers could make any stitch they wanted. The girls ended up donating 73 bracelets to Family Promise of Greater Cleveland. Girls are learning that they can be good friends to people they don’t even know!
Spa: Campers made Pixy Stick Lipgloss this week. A delicious, cute, and shimmery gloss to keep their lips soft and pretty.
Art: This week, the campers were able to let their creativity soar by using a variety of materials that were in the art room.
Reclaim: Campers created, invented, and discovered using a variety of supplies left over from all our other activities this summer. There were some amazing creations, including an almost full size dog!
Kindergarten: The kindergartners had a great time this last week. They became fairies at the fairy ball, practiced their Lip Sync dance, and played with shaving cream. Using sidewalk chalk was also a favorite activity during the last week.
The three-year olds (France and Italy): Signing could be heard down the hall from these classes! Some of their favorite songs were Itsy Bitsy Spider, the ABCs and the Bubblegum song. Both of the classes came together to play several times this week. They also made binoculars and went bug hunting and bird watching.
The four-year olds (Japan and India): Campers read The Rainbow Fish this week and made their own fish with glittery scales. On pajama day, campers read some fun pajama books and did a pajama-themed craft. What a great summer!
