Hey, Group 24! We can’t believe we’re already halfway done with camp. The weeks have been flying by way too fast! Though the weather this week may have been gloomy, we didn’t let that stop us from having as much fun as we possibly could. We started off our week with photography where everyone took some really cool pictures for the picture frames they had decorated. Although it was raining on Wednesday, we didn’t let that stop us from having a super fun party for Yomi bear’s birthday at a nearby hotel. Everyone was jumping and dancing all around. On Thursday, the campers began practicing for their big Yomi idol performance next week. They seem to love our song choice of “How far I’ll go” from the movie Moana. On Friday we took to Yankee’s Field where we participated in a rousing game of baseball and then later celebrated Shabbat! We hope to have an even better week next week with each other. This is the Empire State Timbs signing off!
Have you ever wondered what it is like to ride a bus to camp? You should ask one of the buses that recently won bus of the week. Bus of the week can be earned for many different reasons, some of which include: being spirited, being organized, having fun, being friendly, and inclusive. Our “spies” ride the buses each week looking out for all of these different things. On Fridays at dismissal it is tradition that Yomi Bear appears at camp and helps announce the bus of the week winners. If your camper’s bus wins Bus of the Week, make sure to congratulate them – it’s a big deal in our world!
