Despite the wacky weather over the past week, the World Wanderers joyfully jumped into all that Camp Yomi had in store. We started our week off right with the hilarious movie, Emperors New Groove. The excitement did not stop there, however, as we flew into our fantastic late night. We served in tennis and played catch in lacrosse. Following our terrific triple swim periods, we participated in so many creative late night activities. We traveled around the world to India, Australia & Egypt in just one day! We created Rangoli artwork in India, played kangaroo potato sack races in Australia and ran relay races past mummies in Egypt. Our late night ended with a massive Unit 2 dinner, where we shared lots of hugs and laughter. On Yomi Bears Birthday (Wacky Wednesday) we created playful photo booth props, dressed our counselors into lovely presents and strutted our stuff down the party runway. Our week ended with many more eventful activities such as Ceramics, where we made silly sharks and in Cooking where we made scrumptious chocolate covered pretzels. Before we knew it, our camp week came to an end. (Time flies when you’re having fun). We can’t wait for the next!
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!
