WEEK 5: Super Yak and the Time Travelers

Super Yaks enter a new dimension

Calling all Time Travelers! It's week 5 which means the time has come to explore our past, present and future selves with Super Yak and the Time Travelers!

 

When we stop to reflect on what makes us special, we must look back at where we came from, who we are now, and where we see ourselves going in the future. This week, we'll be exploring time and making predictions about the future while we delve into activities from across the ages! We will explore reflections and predictions through activities such as cooking, hands-on activities, games and friendship curriculum unique to Camp Yakety Yak. It’s time to get traveling!

Day 1 of Discovery for Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, Silver, and JCCs teams was spent choosing a time period to dive into and creating a small video sketch on the green screen. Campers chose from a few given time periods and wrote a sketch meant to teach their viewers one thing about that time period. We filmed the videos using the green screen and explored how our available technology makes traveling back (or forward) in time possible. AMAZING!

Day 2!

This week in ChitChat, we are talking about perseverance and how to keep a friend. Students are talking about strategies to keep getting through something tough and practice ways of keeping friends not just making them. All of our hands-on projects for this week are centered in the prehistoric age. Can you guess what we've been making? DINOSAURS! Yesterday we used watercolors to draw dinos and today we got out the glitter glue to make some sparkly and sticky creatures. What a fun time!

At the arts & crafts station during recess we made wacky, retro glasses out of paper and shiny, plastic sheets. It's like we stepped right out of the 80s!

This week in Yak Academy, we are making birdhouses! We've been learning how to use screwdrivers and work in stages to complete a project. Today, we added a few new pieces to our birdhouse and some of us even got to the painting step! We can't wait to take these beautiful creations home.

Day 3!

This summer at Camp Yakety Yak has been filled with excitement and joy for Buddies campers, Yellow and Blue teams in Play class! Week 5 in Play class has been spent traversing a SUPER obstacle course, playing crab soccer, freeze tag, zoo keeper and finally, giant bubbles and some water play on Friday!

Today we played bowling with our bodies on scooter boards. It was so much fun! We also helped each other by bringing the balls and scooter boards back to the next person in line after our turn. This helped to make the games run smoothly and fun for everyone!
