Group 8 Blog – Week 4

The Super Starfish enjoyed another week bubbling with laughter and excitement! The downcast weather couldn’t dampen our spirits! On Monday, when it started to rain, we got to take a special trip to a nearby hotel to watch the hilarious Disney classic Emperor’s New Groove before returning to camp to play some exhilarating games like “Fishy, Fishy, Cross My Ocean” during Free Swim. The next day, the group made some spectacular collages with variously shaped and colored material before scoring major goals against each other in games to practice tennis. Despite the rainfall on Wednesday, the Super Starfish helped make Yomi Bear’s Birthday Bash the best he’s ever had with some vibrantly decorated party hats and cards before proceeding to the hotel to have a dance party, complete with games of freeze dance and the Cotton Eye Joe, along with a very special storybook (Wacky Wednesday by Dr. Seuss) read by Ivy! Next, Group 8 began practicing their insanely cool dance moves for Yomi Idol (we are rocking to “Goofy Goobers” from the Spongebob movie) before making some inventive posters about the landscape of Israel in Jewish Culture. We ended the week with a big celebration for Israel Day and a very lively Shabbat! We had such a great time this week and can’t wait to continue the fun next week! Have a wonderful weekend!


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!
