This week commenced with roller skating. The arcade existed for those unwilling to test their skating abilities. Most struggled in the beginning, but soon nearly everyone skated with speed and finesse. The fastest skaters were those who discovered the key to speed - spreading one's feet farther apart than normal. Tuesday was spent in camp, save the period spent at the playground. We took advantage of the time before Krav Maga to rehearse our family day song, a parody of a radio classic. Most campers would agree that the highlight of in-camp activities was Krav Maga, in which our campers refined their self-defense skills with a seasoned instructor. A camp favorite, Benny's Pizza was served for lunch with the typical side options. Wednesday began with swim, followed by the weekly barbecue. Activities included basketball, volleyball, playground, and newly-added softball and kickball. Sweat was the order of the day, so we returned to camp to chill in the air-conditioned teen lounge. Last period being recreational swim, campers released the energy that remained from the barbecue. With ice pops served, campers headed home relaxed and satisfied.
Our camper of the week is Andrew O. He comes to camp with a smile on his face, ready to take advantage of all that our beloved camp has to offer. Andrew respects his fellow campers and counselors, is quick to follow directions, and exudes an overall aura of positivity and calmness. HJC Day Camp applauds you, Andrew!
