Group 20 Blog, Week 2

It was yet another fantastic week for Group 20! We had an amazing start on Monday at Outdoor Ceramics where we carved, scratched, and attached our heart’s out creating our perfect pinch-pot baskets; and that was only the beginning. We all embodied our best majestic robots at Zumba, played like pros at Baseball, and became brilliant environmentalists at Nature. On Tuesday we sprang into action at Soccer and had a World Cup of our own. But wait, who could forget the afternoon jam session with Nelson?! Our Group 20 chorus could out-class even the greatest of symphonies! By the time Wednesday came around, we could hardly contain our excitement; it was mouse ears, capes, and crowns galore as we dressed up as our favorite storybook characters for Wacky Wednesday! From relay races, to a Unit 2-wide Scavenger Hunt, to even a live Quiz Game show in the Amphitheater, our Wacky Wednesday was action packed from the get-go. As if our week couldn’t get any more exciting already, Thursday brought more fun than we ever could have imagined. At Lacrosse we learned how to master shooting–seriously, every single person made a goal! Then, we picked up our water bottles, put on our Group 20 smiles, and headed off to Hobby Hour. From activity to activity we consistently showed off our Group 20 abilities–truly cementing our legacy as the Greatest Globetrotters.

 

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 20 Blog, Week 1B

Group 20’s week was a home run, starting with baseball on Monday. We split up into teams and played a good, clean game while cheering on our friends. At lego robotics we teamed up to program a robot to move back and forth (might have some potential engineers in the future)! On Tuesday we had archery, which seems to be the favorite activity among the boys of the group. Later that day we all grabbed a video camera to show off what group 20 is really all about and video taped us being our ridiculous and goofy selves. There was no shortage of excitement on Thursday, either. We kicked off the day by making some spectacular Sahara Desert themed bracelets. Then we picked up our cameras, chef hats, and water bottles as we showed off our Group 20 skills all around camp during Hobby Hour—afterall, we’re called ‘The Greatest Globetrotters’ for a reason. After lunch we headed over to the tennis courts where we learned how to hit some fantastic forehands. As you can see, there was no shortage of fun and laughter this week from Group 20 and we look forward to another great week ahead!

Group 20 Blog, Week 1

The Greatest Globetrotters hopped into the first week of camp with enthusiasm as we started off with ice breakers and improv! We slowly got to know everyone’s names and lively personalities just as the sun slowly but surely came out to surprise us towards the end of the week! As the sun came out, we all had a blast splashing around in the pool and skipping happily to and from each activity! Luckily, we were able to relax and show off each of our quirky asanas at yoga. Afterwards, we were able to showcase our awesome artistic skills at arts and crafts and create spectacular self portraits! Also, we were able to end our successful week as we cheered our cheeriest cheer while we went to pioneer, and went googoo for a game of gaga in the sand! We squeezed in some time before the end of the day to test our growing photography skills as we snapped photos of the garden. Lastly, we played our hearts out in basketball and swam like beautiful fishes in the refreshing pool as our Friday came to an end. Not to mention we earned ourselves group of the week! Go group 20! We are all overjoyed by a fantastic first week and cannot wait to start off the next one with even more enthusiasm!
