Today was a rocking day!!! We had such a great time learning, playing, creating, socializing, and dancing together! We started out the day with some team pictures - we looked so great in our orange-tastic tee shirts with our team signs!! At the end of the day, we had the most wonderful talent show yet: Team Talent Show!! The JCCs kicked it off with a choreographed line dance and every single team followed them up with an array of singing and dancing talents!! We saw some “Monster Mashin” as well as some “Shake it Off!” Our campers are so so talented!!
Check out what else we were up to today!!
Today in ChitChat we got to dive deeper into the differences between friends “teasing” and people trying to be mean by bullying. Campers contributed to class discussions and bravely gave some personal, real-life examples to share with the group. Next, we got to have some FUN by acting out some role play scenarios in front of peers! All of our campers are superstars, both on and off the stage!!
Today’s Yak Academy class was a little different than yesterday! We teamed up with another camper and their creature - we put our brains together to come up with some AAAA-MAZING ideas. We are designing PSA (Public Service Announcement) posters for our creatures to star in! Our posters are going to be about how to celebrate our differences and stop bullying - similar to the themes from the book we read in ChitChat class, “Tease Monster!” Can’t wait to do the photoshoot with the creatures tomorrow!
In Games class, we had a continuation of our tag games. We played Good Robot vs Bad Robot and Monster Tag. There was lots of laughing and a bit of excited screaming as the infected Bad Robots chased the innocent civilians and the Good Robots. In the end, everyone won. During our third day of Monster Tag campers began developing strategies and working together as a team to tag their fellow campers. It was much cooler today so we were very thankful out at Games!!
For Discovery class, our second group of campers became ASTRONAUTS today! We took the space ships that we created yesterday and made our own space videos. The campers made their own skits and blasted off into space using our green screen. Some even befriended some aliens!!
Cooking class is letting their inner aliens show this week! Today, campers made Alien Parfaits. Campers followed a recipe to make layers of vanilla yogurt, cookie crumbles, and sugar free jello. They then put a marshmallow at the end of a bendy straw for the eyes! After trying their yummy treat we talked about how this was a “sometimes: food. All campers had a lot of fun learning to follow a recipe and trying new foods. Everyone stayed safe and were respectful to their team members. Cooking class is a great way to work as a team and share utensils.
