Group 19 Blog, Week 2

The World Wanderers, Group 19, began the week by flying in style to the flying squirrel. The group flew higher and faster than any plane in the sky! But the excitement did not stop there. Later we traveled to frisbee and volleyball, where the energy and participation was as high as the sky. In ceramics we made the most perfect and crazy pinch pot monsters you will ever see! On Wacky Wednesday the costumes took us to a diverse land of storybook characters. Group 19 took home the gold medal in the “Chair for My Mother” Coin Relay Race in both speed and spirit! This week came to an end with many activities like archery, where bullseyes were being shot left and right. We wish everyone a great weekend, and can’t wait for next week to see where else the World Wanderers will explore!

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 19 Blog, Week 1B

Despite the wacky weather over the past week, the World Wanderers (Group 19) dove into it with full force and smiles all over their faces shining brighter than the sun that failed to join us on Tuesday. During archery, the World Wanderers put on their bravest face and met their target head on. The bullseye had no chance against the mighty wanderers of the world. In lacrosse, the World Wanderers put on their game faces as they played steal the bacon. During pop fit kids, the World Wanderers became olympic track athletes as they participated in multiple relay races across the ginormous grass fields. The World Wanderers joyfully jumped into our next activity, swim. From volleyball to camper swim races, the World Wanderers had a splashing time in the pool. This week was one full of unforgettable memories and World Wanderers cannot wait to embark on many, many more. Week 3, here we come!

Hey All You Yomi Fans! 

The swim team is so excited to dive into summer, and into the pool! We’ve had so much fun at the pool already; we can tell it’s going to be a super sunny and sensational summer at Camp!

Group 19 Blog, Week 1

In our first week of camp, Group 19, the “World Wanderers,” waltzed right into Wednesday, or, to be more precise, pioneering, where we learned how to work as a team to solve tricky puzzles. Afterwards, we bounced over to baseball and coach showed us how to hold, swing, and release a bat just right. Not to mention how to make a crazy dash to first base! We all played like superstars during soccer and learned a ton about robots in lego robotics; we also learned about coding during Lego robotics. On Thursday the kids had a blast — a messy one at that — making little buckets during ceramics. Later, during swim, the kids laughed and yelled with excitement as we passed around a big bouncy ball. On Friday we all did our best Michael Jordan impression during basketball and drew like Picasso during painting and drawing. Naturally, when Shabbat came around, and the music began, “The World Wanderers” were among the first to jump up and dance. We all left camp on Friday with anticipation for next week, and we just can’t wait to see each other again.
