Group 21 Blog, Week 2

This week the terrific travelers of unit 2 flew through camp yomi on the fun filled flying squirrel and wowed each other with our amazing archery. Tuesday we scored in soccer, a game that rivaled the world cup in excitement. In cooking we baked and designed delectable cupcake treats. Wacky Wednesday was wild and wonderful with this week’s storybook theme; games like the hungry caterpillar and coin relay were crazy fun. Group 21 took home first place on the Camp Yomi scavenger hunt proving that we are the best of the best! Later, tricky trivia was no match for our wit, once again letting group 21 win the game. Thursday we clowned around at circus arts where we balanced peacock feathers on the tips of our fingers. Filmmaking was fantastic, we got to make a documentary about group 21 and every camper got to be a camera man! Friday went by like a whirlwind when we danced our hearts out at Zumba and saw a few homeruns at baseball. And we can’t wait to do it all again next week!

 

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 21 Blog, Week 1B

The Terrific Travelers jumped into our super second week of camp. We started off the week with some brilliant base running at baseball. Then headed on over to ceramics where we made some spectacular swan bowls. The Terrific Travelers had a tantalizing time at tennis on Tuesday, showing the whole group their amazing forearm stance. We also made uber cool underground drawings at painting and drawing! We came back from our lovely Fourth of July break on Thursday and enjoyed filmmaking by making super silly clips for next week’s wacky Wednesday video. At LEGO robotics, the whole group was wowed after we programmed our robots to move around and talk! The Terrific Travelers closed the week off at Shabbat on Friday where we danced around with the unit and enjoyed delicious challa and grape juice.

Group 21 Blog, Week 1

Wow, what an incredible beginning to the “Terrific Travelers’” journey through Camp Yomi! On Wednesday, we started the day off with super silly stretches in Yomi Yoga! Next we went full ninja mode in the fantastic Rope course. After that, we created cool collages in awesome Arts and Crafts. When we were done, the terrific travelers took a terrific journey to the field and played Mr. Fox, with tons of close, exciting rounds. After we were done in the field, the Terrific Travelers trail blazed to the coding center where we solved super serious, tricky puzzles. At the end of the day the Terrific Travelers traveled to the pool and splish splashed in the super cool water! Thursday, we took charge in the the kitchen and made crunchy, yummy apple nachos. When we were done with our tasty treats, we journeyed over to the zapping zip-line and zipped over all of our camp Yomi friends. On Friday, the Terrific Travelers took a terrific trip to the field and got sweaty with some super fun soccer. After that, we got groovy with our dances moves at Zumba. When our daytime dances came to an end , we did the moonwalk over to jewelry making and made some dazzling USA-bracelets. Then, as usual, we concluded the day with two back-to-back periods in the pool. So sure, the weekends’ cool, but camp Yomi is awesome. And that’s why we can’t wait to do it all again, next week.
