Week 7 Recap and Week 8 Schedules

Week 7 spotlighted the rock stars that are all Tova campers! On Monday, some groups roasted marshmallows to make the ideal s’more while other groups mastered their baseball skills. On Tuesday, we joined Yomi Seniors at the carnival. We played game booths such as: camp trivia, guess the number of chips, pin knock down, and find the marble. Some of the attractions included a bouncy house and a dunk tank. Watching counselors fall into the water tank was for sure, a highlight!  On Wacky Wednesday, we had an ultimate dance party and made some awesome CD mobiles. When Thursday finally came, all eyes were on the amphitheater as we got ready to finally perform our dance routines we have been practicing for two weeks.  It was a sellout show as many Yomi and Seniors groups came to cheer us on. You could hear the applause throughout the campgrounds. On Friday, the sun finally lead the way to NJ as we got to go to Bowcraft Amusement park. We spun and yelled as we thrilled on all the rides. See you next week!

Camp Yomi: Unit 3 Group 25

The Jazzy Jaguars pounced in to week eight with a gigantic leap. This week we started off getting hyped up for yomi idol. We found out our theme and we began to brainstorm dance moves and costume ideas. The theme for unit 3 was The Jungle and we chose a song by the cheetah girls named “Amigas Cheetahs.” Earlier this week we got the chance to be shut out by the rain, which we took the opportunity to watch “Tarzan.” If this didn’t get us in the spirit for Yomi idol I don’t know what could have. On Wednesday we took on the stage and we did an amazing job dancing and showing our “Cheetah girls pride.”  I can’t wait to see what next week has in store for The Jazzy Jaguars!!

Camp Yomi: Unit 3 Group 30

HOLY SMOKES WEEK 7 WAS INSANE!! Group 30 started off Monday morning putting in tons of work at Yomi Idol practice!! Despite the rainy day schedule on Monday group 30 enjoyed adventures through the jungle as we watched Tarzan during the thundering showers. On Tuesday our grind was far from over, the Stylin’ Sabers banged out another Yomi Idol practice in the AM, then after swim and we rejuvenated ourselves at lunch before going to our second yoga session of the summer! AND ON TOP OF THAT, not only did we make a hundred grand slams at baseball  we had CARNIVAL!!! ON A TUESDAY!!! SNOW CONES AND COTTON CANDY!!! AGAIN!!! It was truly a blessing. Now… the moment we’ve all been waiting for… YOMI IDOLL!!!! Group 30 executed a TREMENDOUS performance perfectly and soaked up our glory as we made our way to the finals! Group 30 gave such an elite performance and ended up in FOURTH PLACE in allllll of Yomi!!! AND THATS NOT EVEN THE END OF IT! Thursday during the day group 30 finally had ceramics and we looooooveddddd it, everyone really demonstrated their sculpting talents. To follow our electives at the end of the day  we had our LAST overnight!! The Sabers absolutely killed it during the color chase being one of the only groups left with 7 colors on our wrists by the end of the game. Finally, Friday group 30 lit up the morning during pioneering and pounded the sand during Gaga after lunch. And of course the best part of Friday we all were waiting for… SHABBATTTTT!! Shabbat was an incredible way to top off this monumental week for group 30 and a great preparation for what’s to come for week 8!

Camp Yomi: Unit 3 Group 33

Week 7 was the most exciting week yet for Group 33! On Monday we had an Ultimate sports showdown at Ultimate frisbee, where two teams both learned and mastered the game! On Tuesday we dunked into the Carnival where we got to jump in a bouncy castle, eat some snacks, and dunk our counselors!!! On WACKY WEDNESDAY we won YOMI IDOL in our unit and placed 3rd in all of camp. Thursday we played extreme SIMON SEZ at the brain maze, and zipped on the zip line where our brave counselors went too! Then we went into overnight mode and after a third swim, we made smores and heard a story told by the campfire. Friday morning was fantastic with a fourth swim and a quick breakfast before the rest of the camp came, and then we slid into home after baseball! Goodbye group 33 and see ya next week!

Camp Yomi: Unit 3 Group 32

Rain can’t stop us. This week we had flying squirrel and everyone took off in the air. We pulled the rope, dropped the rope, as a group we all helped each other fly high. We participated in instructional and free swim, but what was our favorite part? The carnival! At the end of the day the entire unit was surprised with a dance party inside of a big bouncy house. Snow cones, popcorn and cotton candy! So difficult to choose within these snacks before we head home. Wacky Wednesday was such a hit. Our week’s worth of hard work came to an end after we perform at the Yomi Idol and got to enjoy other’s performances. Our jungle themed dance was a success as everyone cheered for us as we danced.

Camp Yomi: Unit 3 Group 27

Wooooohooo what a great summer the king fu pandas have had at camp yomi!! We cannot believe what a great seventh week at camp we’ve had full of cheers and super exciting activities!! Campers and staff were super pumped to start the week off with yomi idol practice!! The theme was animals and group 27 danced to the song hound dog. We practiced with excitement and we’re super pumped to be preparing for the whole unit to see how spirited and awesome the king fu pandas are! Group 27 blew away the whole unit with their awesome dance moves as well as their styled hair and shades! Girls rocked their poodle skirts and boys rocked their Elvis Presley outfits! To kickoff this amazing week unit 3 also got to have their very own carnival. They cooled down with snow cones, laughed and sang in the bouncy house and got to see their very own counselors on the dunk tank! But wait there’s more! Unit 3 on Thursday had their over night! We had so much fun playing color tag and getting chased by our very own head counselors. Then we made a campfire and the whole unit came together for story time and some singing and dancing around the campfire! A surprise was awaiting, it was s’mores!! Friday came Shabbat and campers sung together and had a super active day to end the amazing week that they’ve had! We played soccer and enjoyed some field games. What great sportsmanship the king fu pandas showed! We’re super sad that the summer is coming to a close but we still have such a great last week ahead of us! Have a great weekend and we’ll see everyone on Monday!

Camp Yomi: Unit 3 Group 24

Week 7 was yet another fun-filled, great week for group 24! Despite the rain on Monday, we still were able to have an incredible day which included a Disney movie classic, Tarzan! On Tuesday we were able to make up for last weeks carnival, which included bouncy houses and even fun snacks! Wednesday, we were all able to participate in a Camp Yomi tradition, Yomi idol in which group 24 danced our way through a mash up of Roar and Just Can’t Wait to be King, which fit our jungle theme perfectly! We were even awarded the highest energy of the whole unit! The fun did not end there! With our overnight this week, we were able to bring week 7 into a close with extra swims, color chase and s’mores to end the night! It is so sad to see the summer coming to an end, but group 24 is ending with a bang and we cannot wait to see what the last week of camp brings us!

Camp Yomi: Unit 3 Group 26

Group 26 had a fun and eventful week this week. On Monday, we beat the rain in the African jungle with Tarzan. Tuesday, we peddled through the pond in boating for the first time! We also flew along the zip line. We wrapped up Tuesday with the carnival, eating treats and dunking our favorite counselors. This week, Group 26 put hours of practice into our Yomi Idol performance – which we performed in front of camp on Wacky Wednesday! Afterwards, we watched our Unit Three friends perform in front of the rest of camp, as well as some great performances from other units.

Thursday, we had Krav Maga for the first time; we learned the strict discipline of martial arts and played with pool noodles. However, most of our Thursday was spent getting excited for the overnight (and our extra swim). As the sun went down, we played Color Chase, or Greenie Meanies, and had our barbecue on the field. We ended our Thursday with stories and smores by the campfire. On Friday, we played Ga-Ga and danced, well rested from the night before; it was a fantastic end to a great week. See you next week Group 26!

Camp Yomi: Unit 3 Group 31

Group 31, the Electric Elephants, had a JAM packed week. This week was YOMI IDOL. Our group danced to “The Eye of The Tiger” and they did a grrrrrreat job. We won Best Choreography for our fantastic moves. Not only did we show off our dancing but we also showed off our minds in Lego Robotics where we designed and battled our robots. We reached for the stars at Yomi Idol but we also reached for the top of the climbing tower at High Ropes. Everyone had a swinging good time Monday with the Tarzan movie and then we bounced our way through Tuesday with the Carnival. We’re looking forward to an awesome last week of camp.

Camp Yomi: Unit 3 Group 29

Although our summer at Camp Yomi is quickly coming to a close, Group 29 is still bringing on the energy and excitement!!  The week began pretty gloomily in downpour, but the whole camp got together and watched Tarzan and had a great time.  The rest of the week was spent in preparation for Yomi Idol, in which the Mighty Monkeys performed a hip hop dance to “Animals” by Maroon 5 and won the Spirit Animal award!!  We then finished off the week with our overnight, playing an intense game of Color Chase, competing in rounds of jeopardy, eating s’mores, and telling stories by the fire.  As we approach our final week at camp, we look back at all the fun we have had these past weeks at camp and anticipate our final days at Camp Yomi.

Camp Yomi: Unit 3 Group 28

It was a very exciting week for group 28. It started off a little shaky with it raining all day Monday but it all worked out at the end because we decided to go and watch Tarzan at the hotel. On Tuesday we finished learning our whole yomi idol dance which looked amazing! And because we got rained out last Wednesday we got to have a period of all carnival activities. Wednesday was the big day, the day of yomi idol. Everyone looked amazing in there red shirts, girls had there hair up while the boys had there hair gelled back. Sadly we didn’t make it to the finals but the kids had so much fun performing it, while performing they had the biggest smile on there faces. Thursday was also really big day, it was the day of our last overnight of summer 2017. The kids has so much fun filming at filmmaking, at the end of classes there were videos of the appearing and disappearing, they loved it. Because of the overnight we played color chase and the kids had so much fun running around.

The Cuddly Coconuts danced beautifully and we won Best Choreography. Congrats everyone! Afterwards, we went to the playground where Matthew had a great time climbing around like a monkey!

This week we had to said goodbye to Chloe and Pilar — we’re going to miss them so much! But we can’t wait to see everyone else again next week!
All the best from your Cuddly Counselors!

Week 7 Newsletter & Week 8 Schedules

Dear Bari Tov Families,

Can you believe the summer we’ve had?! What an incredible time it’s been, and this past week was no different! On Rainy Monday we practiced our ribbon dancing moves with Circus Bob and headed back to the alley for another round of bowling! Tuesday was Carnival Day and campers had a spectacular time visiting carnival booths, getting tattoos and carnival treats, and bopping in the musical bounce house. Wacky Wednesday brought the Dance Party, and we all had a hip-hopping good time playing shaving cream twister and throwing our very own dance party in the shelter! Of course, no dance party week would be complete without a dance performance, and on Thursday we threw a Bari Tov/Tova Idol like never before! It was such a treat to have our friends cheer us on as we got up on stage to show off our moves – stay tuned for the video link! On Friday, we FINALLY made it to Bowcraft Amusement Park and hit up all our favorite coasters and rides! Check out some of our extra special moments below:

Elvin was a swimming sensation and learned to float in the pool all by himself!
Maude was an absolute pottery princess and made so many beautiful creations in ceramics!
Matthew made MLB history with all his home runs at baseball – and even helped his friends with their hitting skills!
Ai Ling rocked the pins and had a STRIKE-tastic time at bowling!
Stanley wowed us swirling and twirling his streamer during circus arts!
Alejandro stole the show at Idol and took center stage with his amazing mambo moves!
Leah was a genuine gem and did some fabulous bead work at jewelry making!
Ethan rocked out with his socks out, dancing to the tunes in the carnival bounce house!
Caleb had a blast of bravery and went on all of the biggest roller coasters at the amusement park!
Jeremiah was a poppin’ paparazzi and took the silliest pictures of his friends at the Wacky Wednesday dance party!
Tyler was a Twister Titan and loved getting covered in the slippery shaving cream with his friends!
Henry was MVP of the ball toss and started a lunch-time catch with his friend Jeremiah!

Have a great weekend!

Love,
Bari Tov

Yomi 1 Blog Post- Week 7

For the second-to-last week of camp, the Laughing Llamas had an exciting and busy week.  Monday, a downpour hit the camp and the group got to go indoors to watch Tarzan and stay dry!  On Tuesday and most of Wednesday, the Laughing Llamas practiced long and hard for the 2017 Yomi Idol competition!  Our group won the well-deserved “best spirit” award for our performance to the song “Everything is Awesome” (from the Lego Movie), and our friends in Unit K’s group 4 even won overall first place in Yomi Idol!!

On Thursday, Group 1 putted a record number of balls during golf and built amazing structures, including boats, during Imagination Playground.  On the last day of the week, the group spent the morning playing a competitive game of Gaga and celebrating Shabbat.  The Laughing Llamas ended the day with a few games of soccer and showed off our moves during dance.  The Llamas cannot wait to celebrate the last week of camp together and participate in the fun end-of-camp activities!

 

Yomi 2 Blog Post- Week 7

This Monday, the Heroic Horses had their plans changed when the rain came pouring down!  However, that didn’t stop us from having a blast watching Tarzan and playing unit-wide bingo.  Then, Tuesday came along and was the last day to practice our wonderful dance for Yomi Idol.  Also on Tuesday was the carnival rain make-up, and the Heroic Horses bounced high in the bouncy house, ate some yummy carnival food and even got to dunk our counselor in the dunk tank!  Then, it was Wednesday- the day of Yomi Idol, a time for all of our hard work to pay off and show off our might moves.  Our group won the well-deserved award for “Funkiest Dance Moves” in Unit K!

On Thursday, the Heroic Horses zipped so fast on the Mini Zip that if you blinked you would miss us!  Afterwards, some of our campers took on the counselors in a fierce soccer game.  It was truly an eventful week that ended with a Shabbat celebration, pioneering, and swimming.  Although we are sad that camp is soon coming to a close, we are excited to gallop into an exciting week of Yomi Olympics to end off the camp season!

Yomi 4 Blog Post- Week 7

The Party Pigs had yet another terrific week at Camp Yomi!  On Monday, we started the week off with some relaxing downtime at “Cozy Corner”, reading books and playing with blocks.  Later, we didn’t let the rain spoil our fun; we traveled to the movies where we unleashed our inner animals while watching Tarzan.  Then, we ended the day with an intense game of unit-wide bingo!  Wednesday was Yomi Idol, and not only did the Party Pigs win 1st place in Unit K; we then went on to the finals, going head to head with the rest of Camp Yomi unit winners.  And…(drum roll, please…) the Party Pigs were the 1st ever group from Unit K to win OVERALL FIRST PLACE!!  We are so proud of our campers for putting on such a great performance and working so hard to prepare!

On Thursday, we played a rigorous game of Gaga followed by a calm nature walk.  Friday, we finished off the week with Challah, grape juice, and some awesome shaking moves at dance.  Stay tuned for our last week to see what lies ahead!

Yomi 3 Blog Post- Week 7

Reeling off of last week’s “Group of the Week” honor, the Goofy Goats did not let a rainy Monday get their spirits down.  They continued practicing and improving their routine for Yomi Idol, set to the tune of the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” theme song.  The rainy day was spent watching the animated classic “Tarzan” to make up for the lost activities.  The sun finally broke through on Tuesday, so the Goats refreshed themselves in the pool and sharpened up their dance skills for Idol.  Because last week’s Carnival was rained out, the Goofy Goats also got a chance to go on the bouncy house, plunge a counselor in the dunk tank, and eat some delicious cotton candy popcorn and sno-cones!

Many days of preparation paid off on Wednesday, as the Goats performed for Yomi Idol to a chorus of thunderous applause.  As a result, they walked home that day with beaming smiles having won the “Best Costume” award!  Before, Idol, the Goats refined their dribbles and perfected their jump shots at a morning session of basketball.  Another marvelous day came on Thursday, which the campers began by searching for rubber ducks in a super scavenger hunt and roasting scrumptious s’mores at Pioneering, as well.  After lunch, the Goofy Goats headed off to more amazing activities, including drawing sunflowers at Arts & Crafts, letting their creativity roam free at Imagination Playground, and putting in some hard work at Starter Golf.  Unfortunately, this incredible week had to come to an end, so on Friday we celebrated with music, Challah and grape juice at Shabbat!  The Goats played tennis in the hot sun before cooling off with a nice and relaxing swim.  The best was saved for last, though, as the Goats finished Friday was a fun trip to the playground, terrific time cooking in the kitchen, and a calm Cozy Corner playing with their best friends and counselors.

While the 6th week has come to a close, a huge surprise looms in the near future for Camp Yomi!  Looking forward to this very special event and a smile-filled final week to come!

Week 6 Recap and Week 7 Schedules

Tova had another very successful week at camp! Monday, they climbed to maximum fun levels on the rock wall and swung like pendulums on the flying squirrel.  On Tuesday, we took a stroll through the garden, watered the greens and tasted the delicious herbs we have been helping to cultivate all summer.  Wacky Wednesday was another successful Carnival Day with our friends in Yomi. On Thursday we mastered our mountain poses and shed light all over the campgrounds during yoga. We finished out the week with a big splash at Camelbeach Waterpark with Yomi Seniors! We rode waves at the tidal pool, relaxed in the lazy river and dared the dark tube slides on water mats. Another successful field trip. We look forward to week seven!

Week 6 Newsletter and Week 7 Schedule

Dear Bari Tov Families,

It’s hard to believe we’ve spent SIX WEEKS together! The summer is flying by in splashes, home runs, and high-fives! This week, we swam in the pool, slid down the water slide, and played in the sprinklers—we rocked out in percussion and practiced our dance moves for our upcoming Idol performance—and we created ceramic masterpieces and bounced on the trampoline in gymnastics. We also had lots of special activities: on Tuesday, we had an Israel Day celebration where we learned Israeli group dances, whipped up some delicious home-made hummus, and created our very own wish leaves to hang in the wishing tree!  Wacky Wednesday brought us beautiful sand art necklaces, yummy “sea snacks,” lots of creative costumes, and crafty fish crafts. And of course our Friday field trip to Camelbeach Water Park went off without a hitch! Campers enjoyed relaxing on the Lazy River, riding the tide in the Wave Pool, playing in the water jungle gym, and braving the heights of the water slides!  Check out some of our camper highlights below:

Christine combined her beading, coloring, and crafting skills to make a fabulous fish project!

Stanley got silly and soaked running through the sprinklers!

Caleb toiled in the soil and helped water the plants all throughout the garden!

Elvin helped make some delectable treats and shared them with his friends during cooking!

Ai Ling knocked the ball out of the park, scoring a home run in kickball!

Ethan was so brave and went down the water slide all by himself!

Leah was an expert marksman during her first time at archery!

Jeremiah made the US Olympic team with his flying and flipping skills at gymnastics!

Alejandro made the Michelin Guide with his 5-star Sea Snack during Wacky Wednesday!

Tyler was a fantastic friend and invited so many Bari Tovers to play frisbee with him during lunch!

Henry dazzled us with his snapshot skills, using the camp camera to photograph some great moments of his friends on our trip!

Matthew was lord of the dance and showed us his best moves during Israel Day and during Idol practice!

 Maude was a dynamo daredevil and rode every slide at the water park!

 

See you next week!

 

Love,

Bari Tov

Camp Yomi: Unit 3 Group 29

Group 29 started off the week swinging like Tarzan on flying squirrel followed by becoming one with our true zen at Krav Maga.  On Tuesday we brought out our inner Steve Jobs at coding station, followed by being true innovators at Lego Robotics.  In the afternoon we joined the avengers as Hawkeye at archery and hit some balls out of the park at Yankee Field.  On Wednesday we joined Yomi Bear as he set sail, we summoned our inner Picasso and helped Ellen with her special art project as well as travel the world through asking people around camp what countries they have been to.  On Thursday we started the day off running across the field at soccer followed by staying off the floor lava at  the evos playground.

Camp Yomi: Unit 3 Group 24

Our week started off with a kick! We had soccer and ultimate frisbee on Monday which left smiles on all our faces. Tuesday morning began with yoga which was a great way to start our day. We stretched and had a guided mediation. Later in the day we used pastels to draw a butterfly bush in our beautiful garden. On Wacky Wednesday, we made creamy gazpacho in cooking. It was delicious! Everyone was dressed up ready to go on vacation so we did a scavenger hunt where we asked all camp staff what countries they had visited. On Thursday we returned to Krav Maga and gardening which our group loved. We are all looking forward to next week, Yomi Idol!

Camp Yomi: Unit 3 Group 32

Wow ! What a week Group 32, A.k.A “Terrific Tigers” had ! With lots of fun, excitement, HOT, and wonderful we had. We started off this week with Baseball at the Yomi Seniors field. Everybody having hitting home-runs and running on this HOT and SUNNY day ! Then later that week, on Wednesday, we had Wacky Wednesday and it was YOMI SET SAILS ! We had to look for Yomi bear and write him letters to see if he was okay or not. Then what way to end a great and wonderful week every Friday with the good ol’ Shabbat ! Where everybody from the unit comes together, sing and laugh and just having a great time together as one. Group 32 had a blast this week and can’t wait to see what’s next for us these upcoming weeks ! GOOO TIGERS !!

Camp Yomi: Unit 3 Group 33

This week group 33 was very creative. We created sharks in ceramics and the counselors got to make some too. Also we went to arts and crafts and got to draw the butterfly bushes. In addition, we had photography and we got to take pictures of the butterfly bushes  and everything in the garden. Lastly, during wacky Wednesday we made postcards for yomi bear because the theme was yomi bear sets sail.  Finally, since it rained on Wednesday the campers got  to learn fun facts about the counselors in a game which they had to guess what fact belong to a counselor. Our group was very happy and had a lot of excitement throughout the week.

Camp Yomi: Unit 3 Group 30

On Monday, Group 30 soared on the Flying Squirrel, reaching high up in the trees! On Tuesday, we played sand-volleyball, and the Stylin’ Sabers persevered through the heat to score points for their teams, even playing on a team against the counselors! Although our Wednesday carnival was rained out, we did get to play Steal the Bacon as well as make postcards to Yomi Bear! Thursday brought an intense game of Simon Says at the Brain Maze with some really incredible listeners, and the weather was perfect for our game of lacrosse! On Friday, Group 30 practiced for Yomi-Idol in preparation to win it all, and we ended the day with Shabbat, Gardening, and our weekly awards!

Camp Yomi: Unit 3 Group 26

Group 26 had an AWESOME week of camp! Starting off Monday we went to the Camp Yomi’s Garden to learn about the plants and vegetables that were growing. On Tuesday, we created flower hooks to hang our stuff in at home in outdoor ceramics. Wednesday morning, we got close to the trees and the squirrels in flying squirrel. We swung so high we could almost touch the sky! In the afternoon, we got to know our Unit 3 counselors, head counselors, and our supervisor a little bit better by playing a fun fact game. Campers were given three or two facts about a counselor, head counselor, or our supervisor and had only five guesses to figure out who was who. Once we were done, we wrote letters to Yomi Bear wishing he got home safe from his voyage. On Thursday, we kicked off with Photography in the morning by decorating frames to display photos we took last class. In the afternoon, we had Yomi Idol practice which is top secret until next Wednesday when we show our performance. We then ended our day with our Yomi-Lectives which we got to do different activities. That’s it for this week in Group 26!

Camp Yomi: Unit 3 Group 27

Group 27 had a very successful week at camp yomi! Monday, they climbed to maximum fun levels on the rock wall. Tuesday, we took a trip to the circus learning how to twirl batons, as well as perfecting the art of balancing using feathers and tennis rackets. On Wednesday, we took a stroll through the garden, sampling all of the herbs and greens that the earth has to offer us. And we kicked off our Thursday with yoga, making us wish we could namaSTAY at yomi forever!

Camp Yomi: Unit 3 Group 31

During week six at camp, The Electric Elephants had a variety of activities to participate in and have fun with. Our week started off with tons of physical activity, playing baseball and doing our best, even through the heat! Group 31 also had the opportunity to play soccer, where learning to work together as a team  and sportsmanship really came into play. On Tuesday, Group 31 showed off all of their yogi skills during our yoga activity, doing all the headstands and advanced yoga poses that one could think of, learning new ways to move our bodies outside of the sports we played earlier in the week. Wednesday started off pretty awesome with an arts and crafts class, where the group visited the garden at camp in order to draw some gorgeous pictures modeled after butterfly bushes, though unit 3 did get rained out of carnival, we got the chance to parts of carnival come to us, with popcorn and prizes alike! Heading towards the end of week six, group 31 got to play a really intense but fun camp of sand newcomb on the volleyball court and learn some stage acting during filmmaking. On friday group 31 got to do the leap of faith, which was tons of fun and finally getting to learn our dance moves for yomi idol next week ! Look forward to another fun week at camp.

Camp Yomi: Unit 3 Group 28

The Kool Koala’s fifth week of camp was definitely a blast for all the campers. Starting off the week “peacefully” with krav maga, the kids were all entranced by the specialist and eager to participate in all of the games and exercises he set for them. Even us counselors were able to get in on the fun playing a few games with the kids. On Tuesday we switched off from peaceful activities on Monday to a day full of sports. The kids started of the day with a few exciting rounds of gaga then moved over to basketball, then dance, and finally, their favorite activity of the day, kickball, where a bunch of the kids were overjoyed to have kicked home runs. Wacky Wednesday started off with a cool adventure at the lake for nature, but then the day turned a little gloomy with the rain. However, we didn’t let the weather stop us from having fun and instead of being able to go enjoy the carnival, we spent some quality and fun time as a whole unit in the shelter playing fun games with each other. Finally on Thursday, the kids started off by making really awesome bowls in ceramics. Their next activity was definitely their most favorite of the summer so far, as we finally were able to go on the zip line. The kids were ecstatic to run off the ledge and just swing across the big field. Even us counselors had a great time participating. We all can’t wait to see what the end of the summer will have in store for us.

Camp Yomi: Unit 3 Group 25

The Jazzy Jauguars pounced into our sixth week of camp with a roar! This week we engaged in an array of activities, we got to face our fear of heights by climbing the rock climbing wall. We found out the song that we will be performing for Yomi idol (which we are stoked for.) On Wednesday, we did not let the thunder stop us from having fun. We played guess the counselor, which we found out so many interesting facts about our counselors that we did not know before. One of the most enjoyable activities that we took part in was outdoor ceramics. We built cars that varied from multiple shapes and sizes. Hope you guys have a great weekend, and we can’t wait to see what other adventures awaits us!

Group 4 Blog Post- Week 6

The Party Pigs had another amazingly fun week of camp!  We started off the week with shooting baskets and perfecting our dribbling in basketball, and then we learned how to make balloon animals in Circus Arts!  On Tuesday, we had a super fun soccer match and showed off our drumming skills by marching all around camp banging out the Unit K beat.  Even Wednesday’s rain could not stop the Party Pigs, as we brought carnival inside!  We had a great time getting our faces painted, eating popcorn and playing a bunch of fun games.  On Thursday, we made delicious s’mores during Pioneering and had a fanastic fox-themed late night, where we had hamburgers, hot dogs and even made our very own stuffed animal foxes!  Finally, on Friday we celebrated Shabbat with dancing, Challah and grape juice and ended the day by practicing our amazing dance for Yomi Idol.  Stay tuned to learn about how much fun the Party Pigs have at Yomi Idol next week!

Yomi 3 Blog Post- Week 6

The Goofy Goats galloped into this week at camp with big grins on our faces and fun on our minds!  We started off the week learning all about our big brains at Brain Maze and had a jamming time down at gymnastics.  When Tuesday came around, the sun was brightly smiling down on our little goats faces.  We pranced all around at PopFit kids and the goats got their green thumb after their time in the garden.  This Wednesday was just as wacky as ever and our goats came adorned in their best cruise attire because this week’s theme was “Yomi Bear Sets Sail. ” so, we lathered on our sunscreen, put on our hottest hats and favorite floral shirts, and set out for the day.  Even the rain didn’t stop us from having the best of days!  The Wacky Wednesday carnival came to Unit K and it was cooler than ever- we made some fantastic flags and got our faces painted!

The sun came back again on Thursday as the Goofy Goats got ready for another great day!  We kicked off our day learning some awesome dance moves and then jumped in the pool to cool down.  We made our way to the Mini Zip, where our goats went soaring through the air!  As the rest of the camp filed away, the goats stayed because it was our second late night!  We kicked off the night with an extra swim, then had the chance to make some new furry friends- fantastic foxes!  We stuffed our foxes and made a wish on a star, which we then placed inside of the foxes in hopes that it will one day come true.  We ended our day with our foxes close to our hearts and happiness in our drowsy eyes.  As Friday came around, the sun beat out the rain and shone way up in the sky!  We ended off our day with a terrific time at tennis and left with a big beaming smiles.  We wish you and your families a fun and safe weekend!

The Heroic Horses had an amazing fun-filled week at camp!  We started the week with baseball and kickball, making home runs left and rights.  On Tuesday, we relaxed with yoga, doing sun, moon, dog and even cat poses.  Afterwards, we played a game of soccer, scoring two goals and eventually ending in a tie.  We enjoyed percussion with Greg, playing our Unit K anthem while marching through camp.  On Wacky Wednesday, we got to play Carnival games, even with the rain and thunder!  We ended the week with photography and indoor filmmaking, where we recorded videos of ourselves that will be included in the Wacky Wednesday video.  Overall, the Heroic Horses had a wonderful time and are ready for another exciting week ahead!

Yomi 1 Blog Post- Week 6

The Laughing Llamas had a fun-filled week of camp!  On Monday, Group 1 played an exciting game of Gaga- everyone enjoyed perfecting their skills and playing in the sand.  Later on, Group 1 took a trip to the playground to swing on the swings, climb on the play structure and play an epic game of tag!  Shrieks of laughter could be heard all over the camp!  On Tuesday, the Laughing Llamas had a great time hearing lots of hilarious jokes at circus arts and seeing all of the tricks- we can’t wait to go back.  Group 1 also went to jewelry making, where everyone made beautiful owl bracelets and necklaces.

On Wednesday, Group 1 worked on perfecting their volleys at tennis.  The Laughing Llamas are pros at hitting tennis balls over the net.  Later on, we had an amazing rainy day carnival where booths came in the Unit K shelter.  The Laughing Llamas got their faces painted, designed their own flags, enjoyed delicious popcorn, and participated in a sand treasure hunt!

On Thursday, Group 1 had a fantastic time playing tug-of-war with each other at PopFit kids.  They also battled their counselors in Newcomb/volleyball.  Flash-forward to Friday, and Group 1 ended their week singing and dancing with their counselors and friends at Shabbat.  We can’t wait to see all of the fun that next week brings!

Unit K Late Night #2!

Dear Unit K Families,

We have been having a wonderful summer thus far in Unit K, and are excited for our second late night, on Thursday, August 3rd! We will be making fox stuffed animals, decorating birth certificates, and reading “Peace Week in Miss Fox’s Class,” by Eileen Spinelli.

During the late night, campers will have an additional swim period. Please pack an additional bathing suit and plastic bag for wet clothing. After swim, we will enjoy our fox-themed activity and have dinner.

Camp Yomi will assume your child is staying for the late night unless you tell us otherwise.  If you would like your child to go home at normal time on August 3rd, please call (212) 415-5643 ext. 5 or email me at yomik@92y.org and let me know.  Please call or email no later than Tuesday, August 1st at 5:00pm if you want your child to go home at regular time. There is no need to RSVP if you plan on having your child attend.  In addition, pick up may not be at your regular bus stop.  Campers residing in Rockland County will arrive at the Rockland JCC at 7:30pm. Campers residing in Riverdale will arrive at the Riverdale Jewish Center (RJC) at 7:30pm. All campers residing in Manhattan will return to the 92Y at 7:30pm.

If you have any questions about this event, please do not hesitate to call (212) 415-5643 ext. 5 or email me at yomik@92y.org.

Sincerely,

Anna Ziemski

Unit K Supervisor, Camp Yomi

Yomi 1 Blog Post- Week 4

The Laughing Llamas had a whirlwind of a week that took us all to a world of fun!  The week started off with a rainy Monday, where we all gathered together to watch “Chicken Little”  On Tuesday, the rain cleared up enough for us to attend outdoor ceramics, where we made “elephant hooks” with clay.  Then, Wacky Wednesday arrived with the theme of “STEM”- we spent time learning about constellations and performing science experiments, like making slime out of laundry detergent and glue!  Who knew science could be so fun??

On Thursday, we sat around a camp fire at pioneering toasting marshmallows and learning how to use sticks in order to create the perfect fire.  We arrived to camp on Friday with extra excitement because it was Israel Day, where we learned all about Israeli culture, including food, music and Israeli inventions.  We cannot wait to see what next week brings, and hope you and your families have a safe and fun weekend!

Yomi 4 Blog Post- Week 4

The Party Pigs oinked their way into Week 4 with tons of spirit!  Despite the gloomy weather on Monday, they were all pumped for the super fun activities that camp had in store!  They kicked off the day with Jewish Culture, and then ended the day by seeing the classic movie “Chicken Little”, which they all got a kick out of.  Tuesday brought even more excitement, because the Party Pigs had one of their favorite activities- Gaga!  The campers challenged their counselors to prove their position as the true gaga champions.

STEM day turned out to be a super special Wacky Wednesday, as the Party Pigs showed their STEM knowledge by making constellations with marshmallows and their very own silly putty with glue and laundry detergent!  On Thursday, not only did the Party Pigs strut their shark-like swimming skills at the pool, but made amazing stories with the poses that they learned in yoga.  Shabbat had everyone excited for Friday, because they got to dance and sin along with all of their friends.  They then finished off another amazing week by showing off their fantastic dance moves and dance and releasing any possible leftover energy at PopFit kids.  We can’t wait for another fun-filled week!

Yomi 2 Blog Post- Week 4

Group 2 started off the week with a rainy day, but gathered together to watch Chicken Little to make the best of the weather!  On Tuesday, the campers decorated frames for the photos that were taken during their photography session with Graceanne.  Later, the Heroic Horses embraced their sporty sides by practicing swings in Starter Golf.

On Wacky Wednesday, the group experimented with laundry detergent and glue- eventually creating our very own goo!  We also made marshmallow constellations and went on a nature scavenger hunt around the campgrounds.  When Thursday rolled around, Group 2 learned to make a tipi and log cabin base to start a fire.  Afterwards, we competed in “Steal the Bacon” during our basketball period.

The Heroic Horses topped off the week by winning Honor Group, or “Group of the Week” at our weekly Shabbat service!  We hope that you and your families enjoy a safe and fun weekend- see you on Monday!

Camp Yomi: Unit 3 Group 27

We started the week fresh with high spirit even though the weather was not the most ideal. Because of the rainy weather, our outdoor activities had to be cancelled, but we made good use of our time by playing card games. Fortunately the rain stopped around noon and we spent the afternoon watching Chicken Little that lifted the mood of everyone. Tuesday was packed with fun activities in addition to two free swims. Kickball gave everyone the chance to showcase their energy and skills, jewelry making was a success as everyone made beautiful necklaces, boating was probably everyone’s favorite, and we ended the day with arts and craft in which we made beautiful peacocks. On Wednesday we started the day full of creativity in drawing where we draw an under the sea scene with patterns. The Wacky Wednesday this week is STEM themed, so we had a tower building contest with straws, popsicle sticks, and tape. We worked together as a group to build the structure but unfortunately it couldn’t stand because it was too tall, but the teamwork is what counts. We also played Spud with math questions instead of numbers. Floor hockey started our Thursday and raised everyone’s competitive spirit. After our picnic lunch, we had percussion and everyone drummed their worries away. It was a fulfilling week despite not having the best weather.

Camp Yomi: Unit 3 Group 32

We had an awesome week in camp this week in the rain and the sun! We started off our week by watching the hilarious chicken little movie on Monday. We then had an awesome Tuesday while we made some cartoons on the sketch program in coding. Our cartoons included some animals like bats and cats, and we were able to choose a different setting for them, such as beaches and mountains. For Wacky Wednesday we used our math skills in relay races . We did math equations to see whose turn it was to be it in the race. We were also able to play more than 3 games of Newcombe at volleyball Thursday morning. Camp is flying by and we are having so much fun!

Camp Yomi: Unit 3 Group 28

Group 28’s week was off to a very rainy start, but we didn’t let it bring us down! On Monday we enjoyed watching “Chicken Little” with the whole camp! Tuesday the weather cleared up and we were able to start our morning off with soccer!! The kids and counselors had a blast playing on teams and cheering for their teammates goals. WackyWednesday’s theme for this week was “STEM day”! For one activity we had to compete against the other teams to see who could build the tallest and most stable tower out of only straws and popsicle sticks. Group 28 came out victorious with our tiny but mighty structure! Thursday our group drew ladybugs and spiders and made them into magnets at Arts & Crafts. We worked together to make gazpacho in cooking, helping each other add the right ingredients. The pool this week, although cold, was as loud and energetic as any other week! It was a great week Group 28! Can’t wait for next week!
