Week Two
group 34 has successfully went through the most amazing activities such as riding the famous zip line camp Yomi has to offer. All of the campers were superstars during baseball with an amazing final score 7-7. Floor hockey has now become one of the most hyper and very active game group 34 has faced yet. The games are at high paste and the stakes are up for both the yellow and red team. Frisbees was very relaxing with all the campers and counselors playing catch and creating games for the perfect catch. Also we cannot forget about swim. Group 34 is one of the best teams when it comes to pool beach ball. The competition is up and the adrenaline is pumping for both poolside teams. And finally, the biggest day this week has offered was our first wacky Wednesday. The theme was story book day. Each camper may dress up as their favorite story book character for any of their favorite novels. We have seen many harry potters , the cat in the hat, and Disney princesses and queens.

We finished the day off with an energetic game of Gaga, where our campers played several rounds, displaying their competitive nature. They were so engrossed in their game that they didn’t even realize that it was time to go! Time goes by quickly at camp, all because of the fun games and activities we have here at camp Yomi. On Thursday, our campers tested their aim at archery with each camper performing impressively well, following all of the instructions and safety measures.

Week Two
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!

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!

Yomi Unit 4 letter

Hello Unit 4 Families!

Welcome to Summer 2018! My name is Maddy Weinfeld and I am so excited to be Unit 4’s Supervisor for this upcoming summer! Last year, I was a Unit 3 Head Counselor at Camp Yomi and love everything about camp. I am so excited to get to know all of the Unit 4 campers and know that we will have an amazing summer together! My favorite camp activities are cooking, swimming and tennis. More than the activities, I love the cheering, spirit and most importantly, the friendships made at camp. I am counting down the days until the summer fun begins!

Outside of camp, I am graduating from NYU’s Silver School of Social Work in May with my Master’s in Social Work and I will be joining a group practice as an associate therapist in the fall. I plan to incorporate what I have learned in graduate school to my work with your children this summer in order to be the best Supervisor I can be!

I am excited to share that Unit 4’s theme this summer is going to be “The Greatest Unit Four,” inspired by the movie, “The Greatest Showman.” We have many exciting upcoming events that I want to make sure everyone has marked on their calendars.

New Family Picnic: June 10

Parent Night at the 92nd Street Y: June 25

Parent Night at Camp Yomi: July 10
