On Mondays, we go to gymnastics and the children get to walk on the balance beam, do tumbles, and have free play as well. The children look forward to Wednesdays when the whole camp goes to Valley Stream State Park for a barbecue. Before eating the delicious hot dogs or hamburgers, we get to play in the playground. The BBQs also give the children the chance to play with the other groups in the camp.
When we are not on a trip, the children go to see the great specialists we have at camp. They show off their art skills in Arts and Crafts, as we have made great creations such as butterflies and necklaces. At the pool, they are learning how to swim. In Jewish Culture, the children have baked cookies and are learning different Hebrew words. At drama, the children are great at using their imagination. We all look forward to more fun at Hillcrest!
