Week 2 Blog – Group 8

This week group 8 has a ton of fun!  We learned how to shoot baskets in basketball and played a fierce game of Ga-Ga.  On Tuesday, we sang some of our favorite songs at Music with Nelson and got some exercise at Pop Fit Kids!  Wednesday was extra wacky this week, as we made puppets and dragon masks and completed a relay obstacle course as a group!  We also learned about our campgrounds at nature and played some games of soccer!  It was like the World Cup was taking place right next to Unit K! On Thursday, we got to roll like Olympic gymnasts in gymnastics and make desert-themed bracelets and necklaces in Jewelry Making.  To wrap the week up we got to go to the sprinklers, which no one walked away from dry!  We also got to celebrate Shabbat together, which is always a good time!  Group 8 had such a good week and we’re really looking forward to the next one! 

 

 

Activities

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.

 

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.
