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 email@example.com
What to bring on the overnight (we recommend sending everything in a duffle bag or a second backpack (wheeled suitcases are not ideal for the campgrounds terrain):
If your child takes medication that needs to be administered to your child while on the overnight, you should give the medication to your child’s bus counselor Thursday morning. Please include written authorization from the parent/guardian along with the name of the medication, condition for which the medication is being used, the required dosage and frequency with which it is to be dispensed. All medication must be in the original prescription container.

This week was a total blast for the Soaring Falcons as we kicked it off with soccer on Monday. Then we had baseball, followed up by the awesome Carnival where we went in the bouncy house, and munched on cotton candy, popcorn and snow cones! Brrrrrr!! After that, we made awesome necklaces at Jewelry making and ended the week with a flight down the zip line. Although the summer is almost halfway done, there are many more fun filled weeks to come for the Soaring Falcons!
This week was filled with lots of first, the main one being the first full week of camp. It was tons of fun, with activities like basketball, ceramics, gymnastics, and many more!
There was the first Wacky Wednesday, whose theme was Story Book, which made for lots of cool costumes and a game show event after lunch. Later that day, we won the story book scavenger hunt by being the first group to find all of the parts of The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
On Thursday was the much awaited first overnight. We missed some of our friends who went home early, but we’re sure they were cozy in their nice warm beds. Those of us who stayed at camp had an awesome time finding every color in color chase, roasting marshmallows, and telling some both spooky and funny stories by the campfire. Then on Friday, we all rose bright and early to go for an extra swim.
All these firsts have us looking forward to every second, third, and fourth for the coming Summer!
“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.
Week One B
This week at camp was a blast as we kicked the week off with our first instructional swim sessions. Then on Tuesday we played baseball hitting home runs in the early morning and wrapping the day up with our Yomi-Lectives. Although it rained and thundered during Yomi-Lectives, our Soaring Falcons kept good spirits in the Unit 4 shelter cheering their loudest. After the Fourth of July, our Soaring Falcons began the day with awesome Yoga in the morning and finished the day with a Zumba class to dance away the day.
Its been such a hot summer so far, we can’t wait to dive into even more summer fun at the pool! We started instructional swim this week and look forward to helping your camper build on their skills in the coming weeks.
Just as a reminder, each day campers have a free and instructional swim period. Campers receive swim instruction from American Red Cross Certified lifeguards and instructors. After each camper is evaluated on their swim skills, they are placed into their appropriate swim groups with respective bracelet color.
The swim levels are:
Blue: Wader, Splasher, Guppy
Orange: Tadpole, Minnow, Goldfish
Red: Catfish, Dolphin, Marlin, Barracuda, Shark, Killer Whale
To get more information on the objectives of each swim level, please check out the document section located on the left side of your parent portal www.92y.org/mycamp. The levels are listed under “Swim Information 2018”.
If you have any specific questions about swim, feel free to email Nina, Swim Director, at CampSwim@92y.org or leave a voicemail at 212.415.5643 ext 3.
Our first day at camp was a total blast as we splashed our way in the pool! Even in the rain! Then we climbed all the way up to some fun on the rock wall. Then on Thursday, we kicked off an awesome week at camp by playing Gaga, and ending the day with all of our superstar campers scoring big in soccer! This is however just the beginning to the best summer ever at Camp Yomi as Group 31, the Soaring Falcons!
