Today at Discovery we colored the pictures of animals like they do in Australia. Then, in Games, we played Use It Or Lose It. It included Dominoes, Trouble, and a matching game. At recess, we used the scooters and then had focus time. In the afternoon, we had music lessons learning how to count and clap in 4/4 time.

This morning in Discovery, we created mandalas and origami with Miss Valerie. We all got a turn to try something new and share supplies. In Games, John helped us to be flexible by setting up different games in multiple stations that we had to move through. In the afternoon, half of us worked on creating a Scavenger Hunt with Tucker while the rest of us made Flip-Books with Sam. It was a great day.

This morning in Cooking we made delicious pasta salad. We prepared the tomatoes, olives, and cucumbers, added in some cheese and dressing, and then ate our masterpieces! It was delicious! In Games, we played never-out tag and snowball dodgeball. After Lunch and Recess, we participated in a Scavenger Hunt that Tucker prepared! It was challenging and made us work as a team. But we finished! Then, of course, we finished the day with our Assembly and Dance Party.

Our JCC team was spotlighted today by our tech team! We had pictures and videos taken of our class all day! It was really cool and showcased our camp leadership and responsibility. We also went to Discovery today and made superhero self-portraits. We listed the qualities that made us a superhero and our superpowers (things we are good at!) on the back and drew and painted ourselves as superheros on the front. They came out great! We also continued our superhero training in Games today! At the end of the day, we showcased our JCC team...

A Superhero announcement from our JCC campers!

We went to Discovery and created comics about Superheroes. Then we went to Games and had a great time using our superpowers. and started our green screen project today. We had so much fun today.

Together, a group of JCC’s and one of our master’s level teachers created some public service announcements for the rest of the campers using a green screen and iPads. This kind of technology integration creates positive ripples that will be felt in this community for many years to come.

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!

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!

Today, the JCCs learned about Cup Stacking with Jolene, a champion cup stacker. She taught us how to stack a 3 by 3. It was pretty impressive, she did it so fast! Today was the saddest day at camp, we said goodbye to so many campers and counselors. And also a lot of campers went to Open Gym for the scooters! They were a popular choice at recess! The JCCs cup stacked it the fastest that we got a popsicle party. This week at camp was one week to remember.

"The JCCs went to Discovery and made slime, then we headed up outside to see the rocket launch (again), we made our own this time, and we went through them so fast, we didn’t have enough time to do anymore, because we ran out of tablets. After we finished seeing rocket launches, we headed down to Games, where we did some water stations. After that, we headed down to lunch. After lunch, we waited for the recess announcements, as usual. Then, when recess was over, we walked over to the circle for Focus/Relax time. After Focus, we walke...
