This week began with a trip to the Central Park Zoo. Smaller than the Bronx Zoo, we saw more animals by virtue of the shorter distances between each sight. We spent Tuesday in camp, save the morning trip to the Jewel Ave playground. Our group enjoyed activities like gym, swim, home base games, Wii, and Krav Maga. Today (Wednesday) we went on our weekly barbecue. The usual activities were offered. Many campers enjoyed the same activities as last week. Howard S. played intense basketball before and after lunch, while others, like Cameron D., spent time with friends in the playground. For lunch, hamburgers, corn, and watermelon were served. Upon returning to camp, we enjoyed a competitive game of "knock down the pin". The day came to a close on a more relaxed note in the air-conditioned Wii room. The first week and a half have been running smoothly!
The camper of the week is Miles J. Miles stands out by maintaining a positive attitude even during activities which are not his favorite. If he has a problem or needs anything, he respectfully approaches a counselor and calmly speaks. His basketball skills are thoroughly impressive, and he treats his fellow teammates with dignity and respect. Great job, Miles!
