Yak Kingdom: A Magical Quest - Day 4

July 26, 2018

 

Hear ye! Hear ye!! A royal announcement from Camp Yakety Yak!!

 

‘Twas the noblest of days here in the Yak Kingdom. We started off the day by learning the second verse of our new camp song!! The song is all about how amazing Camp Yakety Yak is! We can’t wait to sing the song for our loved ones tomorrow at the party!! It’s hard to believe that it’s already Thursday. Time flies when you’re having this much fun!!
 

We ended the day with a talent show full of TEAMS!! That’s right - teams worked together to create absolutely amazing, entertaining, and fun shows!! Watch a few of the team talents below...but don’t worry, ALL our teams’ talents will be on display again tomorrow.

 

Read below to hear of more adventures in Yak Kingdom!

 

ChitChat’s discussion was focused on strategies we use to fight off our “inner dragons.” Campers shared with each other and collaborated to think of new ways to calm their bodies down when they are triggered. To finish up our art project, campers created magic wands to cast a spell on their dragons and flames!! Each camper came up with a strategy or two to put out the flames and conquer their inner dragons!! Well done Yak Kingdom!

 

In Yak Academy, campers used their brainstorm lists from Tuesday to create unique word collages about themselves!! Each camper put their name in the middle of the paper and then surrounded their name with adjectives and nouns that help make them who they are!! Campers’ collages have words like smart, funny, helpful, sweet, sister, brother, hardworker, and more!! We had such a fun time decorating our word collages too. We have colorful collages - that’s for sure!!

 

We had SO much fun today in Games! Today we got to play some water games and rotate through different relay stations. The campers kept practicing their teamwork and using the materials appropriately. We also had a station of beach ball volleyball to get our whole body moving and as an option to stay dry!

 

In Discovery, our second group of campers made slime today! Campers followed directions and combined glue, baking soda and contact solution to make their very own ooey, gooey, squishy SLIME! They got to add a color of their choice and slime beads to make their slime unique and special! It was a total blast!!

 

Cooking was  awesome!! It's hot here in the Yak Kingdom Kitchen!! So what better way to cool off than to make milkshakes? The second group of campers had a lot of fun making the kind of milkshake they liked. The campers learned about blender safety. It’s always important to understand the safety rules when using a new tool or appliance in the kitchen!! Afterwards, we made crowns! All campers stayed safe, had a positive attitude, and had fun.
