Yak Travelers: The Next Adventure - Day 5

August 10, 2018

 

 Wow!! It was a whirlwind day as we traveled WORLDWIDE at Camp Yakety Yak. Campers started off the day with another amazing virtual tour of the world’s coolest landmarks. One from the United States was even included - the Statue of Liberty - which was actually a gift from France! So cool!!

 

The highlight of the day was the end of the week celebration!! Campers got unique and special awards from their team leaders! It was super awesome to hear our leaders talk about each of us. Then, we got to go to the last assembly of the week! Each team got a chance to show off their team talents!! It was amazing to see teams work together to put on such entertaining numbers!! A lot of the performances included music and dancing - a favorite here at Yakety Yak! As always, it was fun to see ourselves on the Big Screen during the Photo Slideshow. The link to the slideshow is on the Camp Yakety Yak website’s homepage if we want to watch it again and again!! And last, but not least, we had a mega, marvelous, magnificent DANCE PARTY!!

 

Check out what else we did throughout our last day at camp!!

 

Today in ChitChat, we talked about the seven natural and the seven man-made Wonders of the World!! We got to visit each one using Google Maps! We then had a few minutes to look up any other areas the campers were interested in visiting! Our last ChitChat discussion was about our favorite parts of camp!! We know it’s sad that camp is over but we also celebrated the amazing week(s) we’ve had together!

 

On our last day in Yak Academy, we traveled to India to get our final passport stamp of the week!! We learned that India is the second largest country in the world in terms of population! And shampoo was invented in India!! We also learned about henna which is temporary body art in very intricate designs. We got to create “henna hands” today by tracing our own hand on a piece of paper, cutting it out, and then adding in henna designs with colored pencils! Some of the designs are very tricky but everybody’s turned out special and unique! We had so much fun gathering our passport stamps this week! We got to take our passports home today to show off all that we learned along the way!


Today in Games, we played a bunch of fun tag games outside! Campers got to choose their favorites from their time at camp!
 

Instead of going to Discovery or Cooking, it was movie day!! We got to eat yummy popsicle treats while sailing over to Hawaii to watch part of the movie Moana!! Aloha, Yak Travelers!!
