Group 34 Blog

Week Six
Group 34 enjoyed yet another jam-packed week filled with exciting activities and new experiences! Beginning our week off, the campers enjoyed another period of Sports Club, this week’s sport was Basketball, which many of them were a fan of! The campers played several rounds of knock-out while also running drills, making their time on the court both fun and very fast-paced! On Tuesday, the campers enjoyed another period of Baseball, where they followed the directions of their coach and counselors to play a couple of intense innings. It was evident that the campers used the skills that they’ve learned throughout the summer to their advantage, with many of them scoring home-runs for their team! On Wednesday, we had our second Carnival Day of the summer. The campers spent their day visiting booths such as Pin the Tail, Cheetah Race, Face Paint, Glitter Tattoos, a Safari Photo-Booth, and other Safari-themed activities. Afterwards, the campers made their way to the other side of camp, where they enjoyed Carnival rides such as a disco-bouncy castle and a dunk-tank! Cotton candy, popcorn, and flavored ice-cones were offered as well! On Thursday, group 34 enjoyed another period of Newcomb/Volleyball,  where the campers enjoyed a different version of Newcomb known as Revenge Newcomb, which is when the person from the opposing team gets a player out, that player who gets out can come back into the game as soon as the opposing player gets out. Ending the second to last week of camp, we couldn’t be more excited to see how our last week of camp will be spent! We wish you and your family an amazing weekend.

Week Five
This week, Group 34 spent their 6th week at camp enjoying numerous activities and events that left the campers wanting more, leaving them excited for their next week at camp! On Monday, the campers enjoyed playing Lacrosse for the first time this summer. Being introduced to the exciting, fast-paced sport of Lacrosse meant being open to new experiences and challenges, which every camper handled amazingly well! On Tuesday, the campers enjoyed Baseball, a sport they’ve become to know and really love throughout this summer. On Wednesday, we had our annual Yomi Idol! The campers had numerous practices leading up to Yomi Idol, which involved, with the help of us (their counselors!), the opportunity to choreograph a dance routine to the song, Getcha’ Head in the Game, from the movie, High School Musical! Every camper was ecstatic to have a role in deciding how their dance would be performed on the day of Yomi Idol, and each camper handled the pressure of performing in front of their entire Unit very well, placing in 3rd overall! On Thursday, the campers enjoyed another opportunity at Lego Robotics, where they used computer coding to program a robot to move forward and backward, display certain sounds, such as a dog barking, and other interesting programming techniques. On Friday, with the return of the campers who hadn’t stayed for the Unit 4 Overnight on Thursday, were welcomed back with a game of Silent Disco! This involved campers and counselors all wearing headphones that played different channels of songs, displaying a shelter filled with laughter, joy and a whole lot of dancing! We couldn’t be more excited for week 7 to begin, and we wish you and your family an amazing weekend.

Week Four
As the amazing Ringleaders start reaching towards the end of camp, this week in particular was quite interesting. Despite all of the weather changes, group 34 has managed to still bring all of their energy to camp. Group 35 had an amazing time during sports club which was tennis this week. Everyone was practicing their volleys and aces. Group 34 had their own World Cup at camp yomi at soccer. The scores were tied up for 3 minutes and ended in an spectacular 8-8. Floor hockey was very interesting with all campers versus their counselors and even the instructor. Final score was 10-6 with the campers taking the victory. The rainy days usually bring people down but with group 34 was just another day at camp with having indoor activities such as doing lanyard, hosting a battleship competition and drawing and coloring. And finally this week wacky Wednesday theme was yomi bear’s birthday bash. We starting off with going to a hotel for the wacky Wednesday entertainer who were Djs. They played music that the campers absolutely adored. Everyone was dancing and having a good time. Than a limbo line started and everyone began to go under. Yomi bear finally made an appearance at his birthday bash. He even hopped onto the limbo line and did a round for all his friends. Group 34 has made the most for this week at camp.

Newsletter: Bus of the Week!
Have you ever wondered what it is like to ride a bus to camp? You should ask one of the buses that recently won bus of the week. Bus of the week can be earned for many different reasons, some of which include: being spirited, being organized, having fun, being friendly, and inclusive. Our “spies” ride the buses each week looking out for all of these different things. On Fridays at dismissal it is tradition that Yomi Bear appears at camp and helps announce the bus of the week winners. If your camper’s bus wins Bus of the Week, make sure to congratulate them – it’s a big deal in our world!

Week Three
This week, Group 34 enjoyed another week at camp filled with awesome and exciting activities, both new and old! On Monday, the campers tried their hand at Tennis for the first time this summer! The campers took turns volleying tennis balls over the net while running drills at high-speed, never letting up, even when things got difficult. Each camper pushed themselves to the best of their abilities, encouraging their friends along the way! On Tuesday, the campers begun their day with Krav Maga. Originating in Israel, Krav Maga is a style of military self-defense that utilizes techniques such as boxing, wrestling, judo, and karate. Although this activity required a great deal of physical contact, the campers respected one another’s boundaries and had a fun, energetic time while doing so. On Wednesday, the campers participated in another Wacky Wednesday! This week’s theme was Carnival Day, which consisted of booths, rides, and concession stands that had carnival foods such as popcorn, cotton candy and snow cones! While the food was definitely a fan-favorite among the campers, the sack races and face-paint were just a few of the memorable activities Carnival Day had to offer. On Thursday, the campers tried another new activity, Kickball! These campers combined their skills from Soccer and Baseball to play Kickball to the best of their abilities, making for an all-around awesome time. This week was spent participating in new and exciting activities, and we’re hoping that next week outshines the amount of fun that this week had to offer. We wish you and your family an amazing weekend!

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.

Our sports activities are coached by professional sports organizations and instructors such as; The Baseball Center, Tennis Innovators, and Super Soccer Stars.

Week One B

This week, Group 34 participated in many active and exciting activities! Starting our week off right, Monday morning began with Jewelery-Making, where campers weaved 4th of July themed bracelets and necklaces. In the afternoon, Group 34 made their way to the nearby lake, where they experienced boating for the first time this summer. Each boat made it necessary for two campers to be in the front pedaling,  resulting in every camper displaying excellent teamwork. On Tuesday, the campers took a nature walk around the baseball diamond and by the swimming pool, finding tree rings and (at a distance) poison ivy along the way! Taking Wednesday off for 4th of July, we came back to camp on Thursday full of energy and excitement. After lunch, Group 34 enjoyed their first encounter with Circus-Arts! The campers practiced using stilts, balancing a feather on one finger, juggling, and many more circus-related activities, with lots of funny jokes told throughout the period. Later in the day during free-swim, the counselors and campers all played an exciting game of pool volleyball! As we look forward to next week, we’re wishing you and your family an amazing weekend!

Week One
Group 34 had an awesome, fun-filled first week! Starting our week off, on Wednesday group 34 enjoyed the ins and outs of filming-making by learning how to use a green screen. Each camper then had the opportunity to use the green screen to mime an activity in their own way, making for some very funny performances! We then set off for instructional swim, where our campers were swim tested. Through the rain splattered water, each camper swam very well, showcasing their amazing swimming capabilities. 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. They finished the day off with a resounding soccer scrimmage, both teams displaying great sportsmanship and teamwork. As the week draws to a close, we couldn’t be more excited to begin the next one! We wish you and your families a great weekend.

Group 33 aka The Flying 33 had yet another amazing week of camp, in spite of the unpredictable weather. Even though most of Monday was spent in our shelter due to the rain, we had a wonderful morning of playing games, supporting our fellow campers in showcasing talents, and singing too! Tuesday followed the same suit as Monday but fortunately the rain cleared up in the afternoon, and the campers had a blast during their first days of their new Yomi-lectives. Wednesday was a very special Wacky Wednesday because it was Yomi Bear Bash, a celebration of Yomi Bear’s Birthday! We started off the day with a captivating news video segment. Due to more rain, we later drove to a hotel but had an eventful day dancing, cheering, conga lines, and even doing limbo. On Thursday, mother nature finally gave us a break and we had a whole day of fun activities including arts and crafts, swimming, and pop fit kids! In addition, The Flying 33 also began rehearsing for Yomi-Idol next week, and we are off to a marvelous start!

Group 33 had a fantastic third week of camp! On Monday, we had Flying Squirrel! One at a time, a kid was placed in a harness and pulled by their fellow campers as high as possible. When the ground was daringly far, the campers released the rope, letting the kid swing in the air — it was thrilling! On Tuesday, we had cooking, in which we made ice-cream! We learned that whipped cream and condensed milk can serve as the base to any type of ice-cream! In filmmaking, we made a documentary about our group. We acted out our finest dance moves from Zumba, including the Macarena, our best strokes from swim, and our favorite gymnastics skills. On Wednesday, we had the carnival! We enjoyed many snacks, such as cotton-candy, popcorn, and snow cones. We jumped on the bouncy house, were face-painted, and earned prizes! On Thursday, we had gardening and made collages from leaves and sticks found on a nature walk. We also enjoyed making bracelets in Jewelry making. On Friday, we celebrated Shabbat and had a blast splashing around in the pool. This week was so much fun and we look forward to another amazing one at Camp Yomi!


Week Two
This week group 33 also known as The Flying 33, had a blast at camp! On Monday we had picture day and put on our best smiles. Later in the day we played soccer and were separated into three different teams. We learned that playing together as a team is at a lot more fun and exciting. Tuesday morning we headed to cooking.

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.


Week One B
Group 29 AKA The Electric Elephants, had an amazing second week!!! It was a very hot week but that didn’t stop us from having fun. We got to go tennis and learned how to play. During the week we combined with another group and we got to play lacrosse. On Thursday, we started the day with pop fit kids and we got do some exercises. We also got to look at the garden and looked at the grapes that were growing. At the end of the day Thursday, we got to go on the zip-line and we had a blast to end the day. On Friday, we celebrated Shabbat to end the week.

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
