This week’s weather may have been a downer, but group 9’s spirit has never been more up! We started off the week with a movie, The Emperor’s New Groove. On Tuesday, the weather cleared up and we were back to our regular schedule. Our campers learned how to play different instruments in Music and made nature collages in Gardening. This week’s Wacky Wednesday theme was Yomi Bear’s Birthday Bash. Even though there was rain, it didn’t stop us from having the best birthday bash ever! Our group made some birthday decorations for our shelter and customized their own party hats. Then we took a bus to the hotel to have an EPIC DANCE PARTY. All of our campers showed off their amazing dance moves and had such a good time. We wrapped our Wacky Wednesday with a special reading of “Wacky Wednesday” by Dr. Seuss. On Thursday the weather cleared up and we were able to work up a sweat by playing soccer. Since Yomi Idol is also coming up (get pumped!), group 9 had their first ever Yomi Idol practice. We then had Jewish music, where all of us learned to sing the Shabbat songs (just in time for Friday Shabbat). Things are looking super exciting next week and the Swimming Sea Dragons are more than ready for Yomi Idol and all the new activities.
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!
