Each day, the campers can’t wait to make a big splash at the pool. They are learning how to put their face in the water and kick their legs while holding on to a kickboard. On Wednesday, we had our first barbecue at Valley Stream State Park. Barbecues are great because our campers get to interact with the other groups in the camp. We did parachute with the 6/7 Boys and Girls and then went to the playground, where there were swings, a sand box, and all kinds of things to climb on. Time flew by and we were having so much fun; it was soon time to eat lunch. The campers enjoyed hot dogs, corn, potato chips and watermelon. The Cookie Monsters are looking forward to more trips, barbecues and other fun activities that await us this summer at Hillcrest.
The camper of the week is Jonah because he sat next to a camper that had just started today and asked him what his name was, and talked to him. We love when campers help make sure everyone is included in the group.
