Group 5 Blog – Week 1B

What a wonderful second week of camp it has been at Camp Yomi, especially for Group 5! The Popping Puffer Fish started off the week right by making swans that were made out of clay, and by having an extra free swim, making it two for the day. Instructional swim started on Tuesday. Tuesday was a great day at Camp Yomi for group 5 even though it rained! The group did enjoy a great time doing gymnastics. On Wednesday, the 4th of July there was no camp as everyone was out and celebrating the holiday. Group 5 hopes everyone had a well spent day off and enjoyed time with their families!  Thursday was an incredible day as it marked our first late night as a group and as a unit. With three swim periods, a scavenger hunt, making oceans, and having a picnic on the field, we, as the Popping Puffer Fish, would say we had a terrific second week here at Camp Yomi. On Friday we enjoyed Shabbat as a whole unit and sang songs to celebrate the holiday. Every camper in group 5 loved basketball, and it was even recognized as one of the best sports that every camper in the group has played.  We hope all our group 5 families have a great weekend and we’re really looking forward to next week!


Hey All You Yomi Fans!

The swim team is so excited to dive into summer, and into the pool! We’ve had so much fun at the pool already; we can tell it’s going to be a super sunny and sensational summer at Camp!

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.
