Group 12 Blog, Week 2

The Silly Sightseers continued week 2 with the same, huge amount of energy and spirit they had during week 1. Monday started off with a lot of rhythm in music. Group 12 then was able to practice their accuracy during archery. Circus Arts was funny as always, as jokes were made while the campers had the opportunity to play fun animal games. Basketball was a blast, where campers got a chance to improve their jump shot. Tuesday baseball was an all-around success; everyone got to show off their powerful swings. At gardening we got a chance to see just what grows in that garden. During Pop Fit Kids, all the campers participated in relay races, and got to show off how fast they could run. Wednesday was Storybook character day and all the campers came dressed up as their favorite character. They also partook in theme games and were certainly entertained by this week’s entertainer. Thursday, campers got a chance to enjoy their favorite activity during Hobby Hour. Campers’ soccer skills were on full display when they enjoyed a game of campers vs. counselors! As always the days ended with free and instructional swim, where campers were happy and playful! We very much look forward to the many camp days still yet to come.

Our beautiful campgrounds have over 50 acres of grass, courts, and fields to play on. With over 12 active activities, our campers are sure to get in the game! Our sports activities are coached by professional sports organizations and instructors such as; The Baseball Center, Tennis Innovators, and Super Soccer Stars.

This week, Fly Yoga instructors coached campers on how to create stories using only body movements. Campers dribbled down the court at basketball, learning special reasoning on the court. 

 Unit 3 and 4 campers have the option of joining the weekly Sports Club activity for even more sports in their schedule. During Sports Club, campers enhance their skills, receive extra practice time and specialized instruction.

 Counselor of the Week

Every week we choose an extraordinary staff member(s) from each unit who exemplifies all five of our camps’ core values. We look for someone who is compassionate, mindful, courageous, a leader, and most importantly an overall mensch! These individuals go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure smiling, laughter, and safe summer fun! These handful of super counselors get the esteemed honor of being Counselor of the Week.

 

 

Group 12 Blog, Week 1B

The Silly Sightseers started off their second week of camp with many fun new activities. The campers worked together as a team and showed tremendous support to each other in every activity. They began magnificent Monday with the Flying Squirrel where they went super duper high into the air and cheered their way down. Later on in improv, the campers and counselors all worked together to have a silly and relaxed time. Lastly, they showed off their pro-like tennis skills. Terrific Tuesday was started in the glamorous garden where the campers learned fantastic facts about plants, and even got to water some as well. Next came yoga, where everyone got to relax and show off their marvelous yoga moves. Then in lacrosse and soccer, the campers learned all about the sport and played amongst themselves where they made some spectacular scores. The campers made some lovely jewelry for Fourth of July in jewelry making. Thrilling Thursday was a relaxed day for the campers where they showed some amazing Zumba moves and were able to participate in an activity of their choosing. Each day ended with a chance to cool off in the pool with sweet splashes. But of course to cool off from the humid heat throughout the day, the campers and counselors all played their favorite game, Mickey! This week the Silly Sightseers has a blast, and we’re looking forward to the weeks to come and what camp Yomi has in store for us next!

Group 12 Blog, Week 1

The Silly Sightseers had a super first week of camp! Our days were filled with fun and teamwork! Starting on wondrous Wednesday, the Silly Sightseers had a chance to show off their bold baseball skills! Later, coding was a fantastically fun way for the campers to use their insightful brains to crack the clues of the Minecraft game. At our nature activity, the campers successfully studied the different kinds of trees that live with us on our campgrounds! Shortly thereafter, Thursday rolled around during which the campers got to explore the symbolic, meaningful messages locked away in art in Arts & Crafts. They also got a chance to draw their very own self-portraits, and the counselors marveled at the diversity of artistic choices they made. Later at Archery, they were taught how to successfully shoot a bow and arrow! All of the days ended with a splash, as campers eagerly rushed over to swim, where campers and counselors alike played games fun water games!
