SuperYaks to the rescue! A superhero announcement from Camp Yakety Yak!
This week we focused on being courageous and not afraid to take risks. We were introduced SuperYak, Camp Yakety Yak’'s superhero mascot! He might be large and shaggy with horns, but he uses his power for good! We began be talking about what makes each of us special (our hidden superpowers), and how we can use this as a superpower to fight against destructive decisions or friendship mistakes!
In Cooking this week we celebrate our inner Superhero! To help make our bodies super strong the JCC, Orange, Yellow, and Silver teams made homemade ranch. We then took celery and carrots and dipped them into the ranch. This was a yummy treat! The campers loved learning how to measure spices. It was also fun to see all of the spices mix together in the blender. All campers stayed safe in the kitchen and had a great time.
In Games today we became superheroes in training! Superheroes have to be speedy and have the skills that let chase the villain when things get bad. Also, superheroes need to be strong. With that in mind we played a crazy game of Superhero Tag. In Superhero Tag everyone everyone was “it” and had a card with a number from one and ten written on it. One person’s card has a gold star. When campers tagged each other, they exchanged cards and then tried to find someone else to tag. At random times during the game there was an exercise break. The person with the gold star got to help pick the exercise and everyone else did that exercise the number of times written on the card they end up with. Exercises today included jumping-jacks, push-ups, sit-ups, squats and even burpees!
