Yak Trackers and the Search for Bigfoot, Day 5
What an incredible week at camp!! Campers had another jam-packed day filled with fun surprises, cool activities, and lots of dancing!! All week campers have been earning Yak Backs for being good examples of camp's 3 rules: be safe, be kind, and try your best. The hope was to earn a special surprise at the end of the week! Today, campers found out we had reached our goal and we had earned popsicles treats!! They were so yummy and perfect for a hot day like today.
The JCCs were in charge of the Instagram Story today. Go check it out on Instagram at @campyaketyayk. Starting next week, a different instructor or staff member will create an Instagram story so everyone can see how amazing Camp Yakety Yak days are!
At the end of the day, campers received their super amazing awards!! Each camper got a unique award that their team created just for them. Some campers earned awards like "The Helping Hand Award" or "The Playground Pal" or "Legendary Line Leader."
After campers received their awards, we gathered together for our last assembly of the week. We got to sing The Great Big Moose song to our loved ones! We also got to watch a pictures slideshow from the week - it was so exciting to see ourselves on the big screen!! We wrapped up camp with a big dance party! It was so much fun to dance with all our friends and our loved ones!
Here are some of our other adventures from today!
Today in Projects, we watched our stellar music videos! We cheered each other on as we celebrated the end of the week. Then we learned about different kinds of animal footprints. They come in all different shapes and sizes - just like animals! Lastly, we used our own feet to make Bigfoot footprints! Did you know that Bigfoot and humans’ feet look very similar? We traced our feet and then decorated them! When we put them on the ground, it looked like Bigfoot had walked through Camp Yakety Yak!!
Instead of Discovery or Cooking class today, campers gathered together to celebrate a Yak Back victory with popsicles! We watch a Magic School Bis episode that celebrated the Great Outdoors! Campers loved their icy treats - what a great way to celebrate the end of the week!
