Many counselors and campers were dressed up as their favorite storybook character. We started the day with a game show in which the campers went up to answer trivia questions and complete different challenges. During our Wacky Wednesday activity, we made puppets, decorated dragons and completed an obstacle course. Some of the other activities we had during the day were soccer, painting and of course, swim. During soccer, the campers were divided into groups and played against each other. During painting, the campers painted their own wacky giraffe. At the end of the day, the Shining Sharks had a blast running around, chasing each other in the sprinklers. On Thursday, the campers had a busy day that consisted of filmmaking, pop fit kids, free swim and everyone’s favorite music. In filmmaking, the Sharks got to use a camera and make short movies of themselves. The campers enjoyed themselves in pop fit kids, playing different games such as fit, fit, run and roll the dice!. Pop fit kids is a fun way for the campers to stay active and healthy! During music, the Shining Sharks turned into Shining Artists as they played with many different instruments.

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.
