Group 16 Blog, Week 2

The Superstar Sailors sailed into week 3 with a bang at soccer, where Ashlyn,
Julia, Matthew and Sasha showed off their best World Cup impressions with thrilling goals. Max A., Ari, and Gabriela displayed their keen sense of smell in Gardening as they pointed out all the tasty mint leaves. Later that day, Leah and Mason made amazing bracelets and necklaces in Jewelry making. Everyone in Group 16 were sure to bring their best smile for our group picture on Monday. On Tuesday, Clara, Evelyn, and David showed how creative they are in Arts and Crafts. While Zachary, Sam, and Max. S. danced their way to winning red light green light, in Zumba. On Wacky Wednesday, Kasey and Violet demonstrated their incredible talent for trivia and hula hooping at the Unit 2 competition. The Superstar Sailors cruised through a week of jam packed fun, finishing it off with a highly anticipated activity of Archery, where Aidan and Anya both looked like Robin Hood as they hit bullseyes. We wish everyone a great weekend!

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 16 Blog, Week 1B

On Monday the Superstar Sailors made pinch pot turtles in Outdoor Ceramics and launched into a thrilling ride on the zipline. On Tuesday we exercised our musical talent in Music with Nelson, jamming out to variations of Pop Songs and numbers written by The Beatles. After our break for the Fourth of July, Group 16 practiced various circus skills including juggling, plate spinning, and ribbon dancing. This eventually led us to fill our appetite with the star-shaped cookies we decorated in Cooking. The Superstar Sailors ended the week honoring
the Shabbas and with an exciting, though friendly, game of Ga-Ga. We hope you all have an amazing weekend and we look forward to another fun-filled week at camp!

Group 16 Blog, Week 1

The first week of camp was a load of fun for Group 16, the “Superstar Sailors”! Getting into the swing of things and getting to know each other was easy-peasy for superstars like us. First, we ran our way over to soccer where we played our hearts out in a competitive match; which ended in two swift goals from the red jersey team. Next up, we sat down to enjoy a delicious shabbat feast of grape juice and challah while listening to songs performed on stage. Shortly thereafter, we hopped and bopped our way over to pop fit kids, where we mastered red light green light one two three and fit fit run (duck duck goose). After lunch we dribbled our way over to basketball, and made buckets with coach Dion; plus, we picked up a few tips and tricks along the way. Finally, to top off a hot day, we jumped into the pool with a big refreshing splash, where we played all sorts of games with the counselors while taking our swim tests to find out what bracelet color we were. Sadly, week one is over, but we can’t wait to return well-rested and ready for all the excitement in week two!
