Super Yaks to the rescue! A superhero announcement from Camp Yakety Yak!
It was another successful day at camp today. We started off our day with our daily morning meeting and then began the fun-filled day of classes and activities! We continued to focus on being our own superheroes, being courageous and taking risks. Our campers ended the super day with some fantastic talents and a great dance party!
In Games, our superheroes in training continued to develop their skills. We started out with a few quick rounds of Superhero Tag to warm up and then we moved on to Stop the Bomb. The novice superheroes were informed that the evil villain had developed a bomb that neutralized any superhero’s powers when it hit the ground. The villain had dropped the bomb (a beach ball) and the superheroes had to work together to keep the bomb from hitting the ground. After a few rounds the superheroes really started to work as a team and the number of times they were to intercept and redirect the bomb (hit the beach ball into the air) kept increasing. Sadly, our training ended much too early for many of us. But, there is no need to be concerned, I’m sure the villain will strike again later this week!
In Cooking we made superhero shields out of toast. We cut toast into the shape of a shield. Then we put on butter and cinnamon and sugar. To complete our shields we decorated them with icing. As a group we talked about how this was a sometimes food. After we were done eating our treat, we filled out a sheet about being a superhero. We talked about their name and what their superpowers were. We also talked about what their favorite everyday and sometimes foods were. We had fun making our shield and talking about being a superhero!
