To finish off the day we had Zumba where we all danced our hearts out and went to soccer for a fun match amongst each other, which ended in a tie. On Thursday we had our first day of Gardening where we saw different foods growing and even got to taste one of them. We then headed off to Gaga where everyone had lots of fun trying to eliminate each other. To finish of the day we went to Mini Zip in which all of the campers were so brave and excited to participate in. We were all so excited to try pioneering and lacrosse on Friday.

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.
