The Candyland group had a great first week. We went to the park and played on the swings and the slide. At our first BBQ we ate hot dogs; they were yummy. In arts and crafts the children put their creative talents to work as we made fire works to celebrate the 4th of July. At music we sang songs. In Jewish culture the children learned different Hebrew words, and how to be kind to others. We made a big splash at the pool; as they are learning how to put their heads in the water and blow bubbles.
The children are excited about our first trip to the movies. We had a lot of fun the first week and we are looking forward to more fun this summer at Hillcrest.
The 8/9 boys started off on Monday with a trip to the Central Park Zoo early in the morning so they could get as much time so they could to see everything thing that was there. We got to see the children's zoo, the movies and the main zoo itself. On the trip the campers were split up into groups so they can see more and have different people see what they want first and move down the list of things to do.
Throughout the summer we'll going to be on more trips and have more at camp activities for the kids to play. Our camper of the week i believe would be Jonah, because of his cooperation and understanding of what he can do and what he was told. He was able to sit still and pay attention which was very good in my opinion.
