This week the courageous cruisers, group-17, were just that: Courageous and cruising. We conquered fears at zipline, met Maui, and had many other novel experiences. Like on Tuesday, when we went boating for the first time, and had a blast racing. We also explored our minds by engaging in creativity activities such as ceramics, and arts and crafts. Another new experience was archery, where we not only learned how to wield a bow and arrow, but learned of the responsibility to safety wielding such an instrument requires. Then there was the usual stuff, but that didn’t mean it was any less fun! At basketball we did our best Michael Jordon impressions, and at swim, we had a blast playing Marco Polo with our counselors. Week 2 was amazing; we can’t wait to see what week 3 has in store.
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.
