Group 13 Blog, Week 2

Coming back from a fabulous weekend group 13 returned to embrace plenty of new faces. We landed right into a fierce, affectionate and energetic game of lacrosse where each camper learned different skills, but showed off their own. The jazzy jetsetters then continued with their high spirit and energy on the way to baseball. Group 13 shows the true definition of sportsmanship to one another, and cheered on both teams. Soon enough the new campers settled in and began to see that they were joining a group full of amazing returning campers in unit 2 and the yomi family. This Wednesday was, as always, a wacky one. And even though not all campers were dressed up, we all participated in the goofy activities. The counselors were also filled with a huge amount of spirit, support, and energy, which contributed to success in all games, but also at just making each camper have an amazing time. Later, during the day, group 13 had a blast as we all splashed in the pool and played with beach balls, playing games like marco polo, shark in the pool, and the dolphin races. The jazzy jetsetters then used their creativity in painting and drawing where they drew their own giraffe and then painted it. As the days go on I can say that group 13 is turning into a family rather than just a group. We can’t wait to see the other fun and amazing activities that Camp Yomi has to offer!

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 13 Blog, Week 1B

Group 13 had an amazing time this week! We started off the week with archery, where we showed our skills with a bow and arrow. We had a early Fourth of July celebration in cooking and made red white and blue sugar cookies; they were delicious! Later we relaxed with some wonderful yoga and batted hard at baseball! Sure, it rained. But that can hardly be said to have stopped us! We had a great time running around in the sprinklers and we cheered the LOUDEST even with thunder and lightning in the background! Jumping to gymnastics we had a blast, we got to hobby hour and did activities like basketball, gardening, and ceramics. We then went to kickball and it was so much fun to kick around and play games with our group. But let’s not forget one of the best parts of camp: THE POOL. We splished and splashed and played with beach balls. It’s was refreshing and so much fun! We can’t wait for the weeks to come!

Love, group 13

Group 13 Blog, Week 1

After a thrilling parent night on Thursday, group 13, The Jazzy Jetsetters, reunited on Wednesday and the excitement hasn’t stopped since.  We leapt right into a friendly, yet competitive game of soccer. The amount of sportsmanship, and energy was amazing to see in the first hours of camp. The Jazzy Jetsetters then cooled off and relaxed in Yoga and got to know each other by sharing their favorite yoga poses. Returning and new campers quickly became part of The Jazzy Jetsetters and Unit 2 family at Camp Yomi. Group 13 was able to bring all their energy and excitement to a thrilling game of baseball! The counselors couldn’t be prouder of this group because regardless of the skill level of each camper, The Jazzy Jetsetters never stopped supporting and motivating each other to succeed in hitting some really great home runs! After this really great game, the group got to cool off in the pool and get to know each other in a fun game of water tag as well as Marco Polo! On Thursday, group 13 bonded even more through name games as well as a game of Red Light Green Light and What Time is it Mr. Fox? The Jazzy Jetsetters then went to art and created imaginary underground scenes. We then got into a action-packed, surprising game of kickball where the campers beat the counselors by 10 points! It was incredible! We’ve never seen group 13 be more of a team! Friday, The Jazzy Jetsetters got to show off their jazzy dance moves and spirit at Shabbat! We are so sad week one came to a close, but we hope everyone has an amazing weekend and we’ll see you on Monday for an exciting and spirited second week!
