Unit 4 Overnight!

July 2018

Dear Unit 4 Families,

One of our most popular events at Camp Yomi is the OVERNIGHT and we have great news… the first Unit 4 Overnight is just around the corner! Your camper’s OVERNIGHT will take place on Thursday, July 12. We will enjoy the pool all to ourselves for an extra swim in the late afternoon.  Our special day will continue into the early evening with fun-filled activities, a Kosher barbecue dinner and s’mores with songs by a campfire. Our fun continues the next morning with an additional swim! Breakfast the next morning is also provided, along with lunch on Friday. Campers return home the next day at the normal bus site and scheduled time.

Overnight programming is an optional activity, though well over 90% of our campers choose to participate. There is no need to call if your child will be joining us; however, please notify your child’s Unit Supervisor (Maddy) by Wednesday, July 11th at 5pm if your child wishes to return to your usual drop-off site at the regular time (5:00pm) on Thursday.You can reach Maddy at yomi4@92y.org

Week Three
Group 29, The Electric Elephants, had an amazing week at Yomi!! On Monday, we started our day with making stellar goals during soccer and ended our day with the fun game of ‘’Lions and Humans’ at Krav Maga. While, on Tuesday we solidified our teamwork skills during high ropes since you are counting on your partner for support! During Carnival, we enjoyed the myriad of booths and various snacks such  snow cones, popcorn, and cotton candy. On Thursday, we made amazing versions of frogs in ceramics. Every single one was an original! Lastly, on Friday we enjoyed America’s favorite pastime- baseball!! We ended our week with an energetic Shabbat. It was a lot of fun working together as a group and strengthening our bonds. Hope you all have a restful weekend and enjoy!

Week Two
G29 started the week off by learning how to make robots move in Lego robotics, and after lunch,
we scrimmaged in soccer. After free swim, G29 practiced their camera skills in filmmaking to
make a video. With the videos filmed, G29 headed off to floor hockey to play some games and
scrimmage. After picture day on Tuesday, we went off to play games in tennis before free swim.
The first wacky Wednesday of the summer started off with a storybook character theme. G29
went off to photography in our costumes and practiced taking birds eye and worm’s eye pictures.
After that, the wacky Wednesday activities begun with an entertainer who lead the campers (and
counselors!) in games and competitions. The fun activities continued with a scavenger hunt
where G29 searched for clues and parts of a story which were hidden all around camp. Once all
of the pieces were gathered, we put the story together and wrote one of our own. G29 started
Thursday off by learning how to juggle at circus arts, and later made flowers in outdoor
ceramics. The fun continued where we played games at pop fit kids and shot bullseyes at
archery. After an extra swim to start off the overnight, G29 continued the fun by playing color
chase as we ran around the campground collecting colors. The overnight finished off with a
game of jeopardy and then a campfire, complete with stories and s’mores. Friday started off with
an extra swim before G29 continued on to swim and then shabbat.

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.
