This week at Camp Yomi was a rainy one, but we all had tons of fun! To start off the week, we got to go indoors to watch The Emperor’s New Groove as a camp family. When we got back to camp, we went to Filmmaking where the kids got to watch some of the recordings they made a few weeks ago. After that, when it got sunny again, we had an awesome time in the pool!
The next day, we stopped by the Yomi garden where we collected different insects that we found and learned about them; after we got to examine them for a little while, we released them back into their natural habitat. We also had Tennis, where the Seahorses learned forehand and volleying! Then we got to learn about the different areas of ancient Israel in Jewish culture, where we drew colorful posters to represent the four directions.
Wacky Wednesday was another rainy day, but we livened it up with an amazing dance party for Yomi Bear’s Birthday Bash! We got to groove to tons of fun music and even made a humongous conga line!
Group 10 has also started practicing their dance for Yomi Idol, where we’re going to perform “How Far I’ll Go” from Moana for all of Unit 1! The Seahorses also got to work on their forward rolls and tuck jumps at gymnastics and make super wacky fish at Outdoor Ceramics.
To end the week, Camp Yomi celebrated Israel Day and Shabbat! We’re all having such a great time in Group 10, and we can’t wait to see what the next weeks have in store.
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!
