Week 4 started with a movie, movie The Emperor’s New Groove, which group 16 enjoyed very much! After the clouds cleared we took advantage of the sunshine and proceeded to take a dip in the pool. Tuesday, Group 16 improved upon our photography skills by learning the differences between a worm’s-eye view and a bird’s-eye view. Later we showed our sporty side in an intense game of volleyball. Campers felt confident in their ability and took on the counselors in a close match. On Wednesday the Superstar Sailors celebrated Yomi Bear’s birthday with a huge dance party. We dressed up in festive attire and took pleasure in being in each other’s company. Thursday we had another opportunity to practice our circus arts skills. Some of us were even asked to demonstrate our ribbon twirling and balancing acts. Ending the week, Group 16 practiced for the upcoming Yomi Idol competition. We look forward to competing but, more importantly, to having fun!
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!
