This week at camp the Candy land group went to the movies and saw Despicable Me 3. The children laughed a lot at the minions. At the bbq we were all smiles when we took our group picture; and it wouldn't be a bbq without playing at the park. They love playing on the swings and making sand castles in the sand box. The bbq's are great because it gives them a chance to get to know other children in the 67's group; as they play with them as well.
In gym we played catch with different kinds of balls, and listened to the story of Noah and the Ark in Jewish culture. We had music; where we played with different instruments, played freeze dance and musical chairs. On Thursday we went to gymnastics. First we did some stretching exercises to warm up. Afterwards the children did an obstacle course; where they had to bounce on the trampoline, walk on the balance beam, and did tumbles. The children had so much fun they did not want to leave; but don't worry we will be back there next week. We are having a lot of fun at camp; making lots of friends and enjoying spending time with each other.
On Tuesday we stayed at camp and had various activities to do. The boys went to the park and ran around, went on slides, and climbed the ladders. After sweating and running, the boys jumped into the pool to cool off with the counselors. We created portraits of ourselves in arts and crafts.
The next day, we went to BBQ with the whole camp and had a pleasant time playing basketball and nukem, especially when a camper got a counselor out. We are the delicious and succulent hamburgers that staff cooked up. The 8/9 boys ate them with pleasure. We came back to camp to play knockdown pins with Greg in the gym and later jumped into the nice cool pool.
On Thursday, we went to Monster Mini Golf where we had a BLAST! Everyone was golfing and dancing along to the music. The place was glowing and the theme of the place was great. Later the campers had a good time playing the arcade games and even got some free prizes given out to them like the monster finger with the red nails.
The final week of the camp, we stayed in camp with great activities like Krav Maga where the boys ran around and the counselors participated too. We had our Oneg Shabbat services and went to eat chicken nuggets with fries for lunch. We also enjoyed instructional and free swim as well as gym with Greg. At the end of the day, we said our good byes and couldn't wait for Monday to come around again.
The third week of camp started and it's been a blast we went to roller skating. Everyone went and the campers were having a good time. Some did fall but we all learned how to ride around and as soon as we got the hang of it, it was starting to get better. We have the rest of the week to come and can't wait to see how it's going to go.
The camper of the week is Sam R. He was a great listener and overall person. He played with everyone and would clean up after he finished his eating, even if it wasn't his plate or cup. He always smiled and participated in every activity. Congrats Sam and keep being a good camper.
