Blog: Week 2 Group 4

“Actives” at Camp: 

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 4’s Rockin’ Raindrops had an amazing week! They especially had so much fun at our first Wacky Wednesday. Their amazing experience didn’t start just then, as we had so much fun on Monday painting and drawing, saw some incredible circus stunts at Circus Arts, and learned how to shoot hoops at Basketball. We can’t forget one of the most favorite part of our day: swimming! Campers learned new swim strokes at instructional swim and played with our friends splashing around afterwards. On Tuesday we had Zumba, where we danced to our group’s favorite tunes. We also hit the ball out of the park playing baseball and ended the day with a little workout at Pop Fit Kids. On Wednesday, the campers had so much fun with the special Wacky Wednesday activities, such as being a part of a silly game show! They especially enjoyed seeing their counselors dressed up as Goldilocks and the Three Bears. On Thursday, we tumbled through gymnastics and then showed our creativity at Photography. On Friday, we especially enjoyed the delicious grape juice and challah at Shabbat. We were so happy that the Rockin’ Raindrops had a fun filled and energetic day and are looking forward to the next week!

This week started off great as the Astro Aliens observed and learned about difference plants in Gardening. All week long the pool served as our blissful escape from the heat and we swam like fish in the pool! We sang songs and played instruments at Music with Nelson and made sure to say “Cheese!” and give our best smiles during picture day. Wacky Wednesday was a blast as we came to camp dressed up in our best storybook costumes and participated in activities like searching for crayons in The Day the Crayons Quit Search and made our own Hungry Caterpillar Paper Chain! We had so much fun singing and dancing during Shabbat on Friday. The grape juice and challah was a delicious treat that helped us fuel up for a great morning. We can’t wait to continue to learn, explore and have fun next week!

The Shining Stars got this week started off soaring high in the sky as we welcomed new faces to our group and made our own hot air balloons! The pool was so much fun, because we got to show our new friends some of our favorite pool games to play. We marched into soccer where we scored goals left and right, and the campers took on the counselors, winning as per usual. On Tuesday, the highlight was cooling off at the water gun obstacle course! On Wednesday, we had so much fun dressing up as our favorite Storybook characters and made the silliest giraffe in Painting and Drawing! We kicked off Thursday by making the most amazing bracelets and had so much fun on our nature walk. The Shining Stars found themselves laughing uncontrollably during Circus Arts. We laughed so hard and got to balance feathers on our hand. Our spirits were higher than ever during Shabbat on Friday, where we got to dance along to our favorite songs and enjoy delicious grape juice and challah. The Shining Stars cannot wait to see what the summer brings next.

The Happy Hot Air Balloons flew into the second week of Camp Yomi! They used all their energy dribbling at Basketball and running the bases at Baseball–everyone did amazing even though it was some of their first time playing. On Tuesday, they showed off their best smiles at Picture Day and loved getting their very own Yomi Bear T-shirts. Group 1 danced into Wednesday when they had Jewish Music, where they got to learn all the spectacular songs that they were going to sing on Friday during Shabbat. Thursday brought the best of both worlds with the thrilling Mini Zip and then had some relaxing time under the Yoga tree where they shared their favorite activity at camp. Group 1 finished off the week singing and dancing together with all their friends at Shabbat, sipping on grape juice and enjoying delicious challah!

The Rockin’ Raindrops had such a fun, busy week! We started the week running the bases in Baseball and then cooled off in the pool. Then, we meditated in Yoga under the refreshing shade of the “Yoga Tree”. In Arts & Crafts we got creative making self portraits and then we made special Red, White and Blue yogurt parfaits in Cooking to celebrate the Fourth of July! When we got back to camp on Thursday, we were so excited to get two turns on the mini zipline! The day got better as we had our Unit K Late Night, where we had a wonderful time making kites and completing a special Outer Space Obstacle Course. On Friday, we ended the week with a special camp-wide Shabbat and had so much fun jamming out to the Shabbatones with our counselors and friends.

The Shining Stars were glowing so bright as we zoomed into this week at camp! On Monday, we put our wings on and went on a fierce pollen hunt trying to catch as many pom-poms on the ground. We started off at Starter Golf, where we learned how to hit the bullseye and then cooled down in the pool where we started learning how to swim! We brought out our amazing musical talents at Music with Nelson and later we watched ourselves “disappear” into the background during Filmmaking with the cool green screen. On Tuesday, we got to make our own paper plate birds and practice hitting the ball in Tennis. We had a fun filled rest of the day when we learned the rules of Ga-Ga and tried out the exciting low ropes course. On Thursday we kicked off the day with Ceramics, where we made adorable turtles. We then had a blast jumping on the trampoline in gymnastics. It was a very special night on Thursday as we got to stay up at camp and have extra time at swim, fly our very own kites, and zoom to the moon and back in the outer space obstacle course! Friday was so exciting because we got to have a camp-wide Shabbat and we had so much fun jamming away to the Shabbatones. We cannot wait to see what fun next week brings!

Blog: Group 4 Week 1

Group 4 was super excited to start off our rockin’ summer with some getting to know you games on the Unit K field! Once we all got to meet our new summer friends, the Rockin’ Raindrops couldn’t wait to get in the pool! We practically swam like fishes even when it started to drizzle. After a delicious lunch, we danced like crazy at Zumba–we had so much fun we didn’t even break a sweat! Our next activity was improv, and it was super silly. We played a game called “Screenshot” and pretended to be things we find in pictures, like tall trees and sand at the beach! The next day we started making shooting stars to decorate the shelter. We absolutely loved Jamming at Music with Nelson, we sang so loud that the entire camp could hear us! We had so much fun at Shabbat, singing and dancing along to the Shabbatones and enjoying this special time with our counselors and new friends.

Blog: Group 3 Week 1

And so Yomi begins! Group 3, The Astro Aliens, soared into the week with some getting to know you games like “Where the Wind Blows”. They quickly realized how much they have in common with their summer friends! The campers were excited to then get in the pool and splash along with their counselors and new friends. Later in the day, the campers brought out their giggles at Improv Acting when they made silly animal noises. Group 3 showed off their green thumbs in gardening and then did some “movie magic” with the greenscreen in filmmaking! On Thursday we started the day with ceramics where the campers sculpted some beautiful pinch pots that they can take home in the next few weeks! We then swung into summer fun during baseball at the Mets field. After running around the bases like crazy, we had a blast making music and preparing for Shabbat at Jewish Culture. On Friday, we started off with imagination playground, where we got to play with huge blue foam blocks. The Campers went wild with their imaginations, building towers, slides, and whatever else they could think of. During Shabbat, we listened and sang along to some fun songs and danced with our counselors and friends. Everyone enjoyed the challah and grape juice snack! On this hot Friday, we enjoyed swiming in the nice cool pool! Zumba and soccer were great afternoon activities to cap off a great first week to what will be an amazing summer.

Blog: Group 2 Week 1

Group 2, The Shining Stars, had an amazing first week of camp! The rain could not stop us from having a blast! We played lots of getting to know you games and a fun game of “Fishy Fishy Cross My Ocean”. At soccer we were all World Cup Champions, even beating our counselors in a game! On Thursday we played “What Time Is It Mr. Fox?” in the pool and had so much fun keeping cool! During jewelry making, we made 4th of July themed jewelry, and then cheered lots of our favorite new songs on our way to the next activity! Then, we got our best smiles on as we went to photography and took some wonderful pictures of the garden! On Friday, The Shining Stars celebrated Shabbat for the very first time at camp! We had a wonderful time singing songs and dancing with our counselors. Group 2 cannot wait to find out what new adventures we are going to have next week.

Blog: Group 1 Week 1

Group 1, the Happy Hot Air Balloons, had an amazing first week of camp! ON Wednesday, the group played getting to know you games during fun station! WE had so much fun learning about all of our new friends. Next, we had soccer where we played a silly “Pacman” game with the goals and played on the blue, rainbow, and red teams. The Happy Hot Air Balloons were good sports and showed off their awesome athletic skills. Later we had ceramics where we created and decorated beautiful pinch pots. On Thursday, we had an amazing time playing “Steal the Ball” because we got to run around on the field and see who is fastest! After lunch, we zoomed through the sky on the mini zip where we cheered our new friends on as they soared through the air. At Jewelry Making we all had so much fun making July 4th themed bracelets. On Friday, group 1 started off the day by learning some new Shabbat songs and snacking on grape juice and challah. On this hot Friday, we cooled off at the pool and then had a blast jumping on the trampoline at gymnastics! We can’t wait for all the fun to come next week!

Swim Shoe Reminder

Dear Unit K Families,

I am so excited to have you join our camp family this summer!

Unit K campers are lucky enough to have their own changing room that is located a short walk from the pool. That means that every camper should be sent on the first day with a pair of flip flops, crocs, or any water-proof slip-on shoe to make the changing process as easy as possible. These shoes will be kept at camp in cubbies and sent home on your campers last day. Please label your campers’ shoes with their first and last name.

If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a voicemail at 212.415.5643 ext. 5, or email me at yomik@92y.org.

Warmly,

Anna

Unit K Supervisor

Welcome to Unit K!

Dear Unit K Families,

My name is Anna Ziemski and I will be the Unit K Supervisor this Summer 2018!

I’d like to be one of the first to welcome you to the Camp Yomi family. For many of our campers, the Unit K experience is a summer of firsts: first back float, first soccer goal, or first life-long friend. We take pride in fostering an environment in which each camper feels safe, confident, and enthusiastic during his or her new adventure!

Additionally, I am excited to announce the Unit K Theme for this summer: Up in the Air! Think helicopters, fireworks, clouds, birds, insects, and anything else that flies high! This theme will be reflected in our arts and crafts, games, costumes, and action-packed late-night activities, all throughout the summer! Our Late-Nights will be held up at the campgrounds on Thursday, July 5th and Thursday, August 2nd.

If you have any questions about Unit K or Camp Yomi in general, please do not hesitate to contact me at yomik@92Y.org or call the Camp Office at 212.415.5643 ext. 5. I am also working in the Camp Office during the months leading up to the camp season and will be available to speak on the phone or correspond via email with you if you have any questions or concerns about your child’s summer experience.

Finally, I’d like to mention two important upcoming Camp Yomi events. Sunday, June 10th from 11am to 3pm is our New Family Picnic at the Henry Kaufmann Campgrounds in Rockland County. Buses will leave from the 92Y at 11am and return at around 3pm. This is a wonderful opportunity for you and your campers to see the grounds and sample some of the exciting activities we offer. No RSVP necessary!

June 26th from 5:30 to 7pm is Unit K’s Parent Night at the 92Y. At this event you’ll be able to meet your child’s counselors, Head Counselor, our Camp Director Ivy Manheim, other children in your camper’s group, and me. No RSVP necessary.

Looking forward to meeting your camper; we can’t wait for Summer 2018!

Warm Regards,

Anna Ziemski

Unit K Supervisor
