Movement: Campers played a version of musical chairs this week, but without chairs! Instead of chairs, campers had to dance on different colored dots until the music stopped. Also, campers learned some basic dance moves and played a version of Simon Says to practice their newly developed ballet skills.
Lanyard: We focused on mastering the box and barrel stitches this week. Some girls used their skills and creativity to work on more complicated lanyards, such as the Corkscrew, DNA, and many more! One of the most popular stitches this week was the Chinese Staircase.
Duckland: With the holiday this week, there was no Duckland. Next week will be another quacktastic week!
Fairymaids: The campers learned what kind of magical fairy powers they had this week. The fairies left the campers different colored fairy dust, which indicated what their powers are. Some of the young fairies have water, fire, or love powers! So magical.
Escapades: With the holiday this week, there was no Escapades. Looking forward to next week!
Quick Bites: Mamma mia! Campers had a blast making their own miniature pizzas this week. It was so much fun getting to personalize their pizzas and have their very own!
Challenge: Campers continue to challenge themselves and test their teamwork skills during this class. Some of the campers pushed themselves and climbed some of the most challenging elements of the ropes course. Way to go!
Improv: Campers took a break from Improv week, but look forward to more theatrical fun in the weeks to come!
Fun and Games: Tag is a classic game that has been played for centuries. This week, campers took this classic game and played several different variations of tag. Additionally, campers played Popcorn. No, this game does not involve real popcorn, but a game with keeping balls up in the air.
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: The campers participated in three different activities this week during Discovery. First, they made floam, which is a version of slime with special textured beads incorporated in the slime to give it a different feel. Next, they prepared for the Fourth of July by making festive red, white and blue Rice Krispie treats. Finally, they made Shrinky Dinks. They started by making a full-size design and after baking them, they shrunk to a miniature size, which they could then put on a necklace or bracelet or key chain.
Ink: In Ink this week there were several different fun activities. One was a fun way to practice the different letters of the alphabet. Campers used the classic game BINGO to practice their letters. To practice different parts of speech and vocabulary, some campers made funny Madlibs.
Minute to Win it: This week’s challenge was all about food and creativity. Campers participated in the cookie challenge. Campers started the challenge by placing a cookie on their head and then they had to get the cookie in their mouth. The challenging part was that they couldn’t use their hands to get it into their mouth! It looked goofy but was fun and delicious.
Be-You-Tiful: Campers focused on their inner beauty this week and participated in a guided meditation session. They learned how to harness their positive energy and focus on what makes them happy.
Razzle Dazzle: Slime is very popular these days! Campers made a different version of slime this week called Floam. It uses a basic slime recipe and incorporates special beads that give it a unique feel and texture.
Art: Although some campers missed art this week because of the holiday, others continued to harness their creativity in art class, using a variety of supplies to create gorgeous works of art!
Maker Space: Campers practiced upcycling at its finest this week! They used old t-shirts and creativity to turn them into fashionable bags. What a great use for an old t-shirt!
Kindergarten: To celebrate the Fourth of July, the campers made their own fireworks out of glue and glitter. They also repurposed paper plates and turned them into amazing elephant masks. One of the campers’ favorite activities this week was learning what kind of fairy magic they had during Fairymaids. What a great week!
The three-year olds (Koala Bears): The Koala Bears had a great week! Some of the activities they did were making their very own fish, making and enjoying delicious “mud” pies, and reading the book The Bear That Shares.
The four-year olds (Giraffes and Elephants): This week, campers had a blast participating in lots of different activities. Some of the highlights from this week were making their own visors and a yummy batch of trail mix. Of course, campers took any chance they could to go in the sprinklers or on the playground!
