Welcome back! We hope you had a relaxing first few weeks of summer.
Our first week of Creative Kids Camp was a huge success with “A-camping We Will Go” as our theme. We became reacquainted with our preschool friends and welcomed some new camp friends. Miss Miranda is back for the summer as well as Miss Fabi and Miss Bethany. We also welcomed our two new CIT’s (counselors-in-training), Serena and Gillian.
Water play and the sand table seemed to be the top two favorite activities this week! We read Olivia Goes Camping (Alex Harvey), The Night Before Summer Camp (Natasha Wing), Camping Day (Patricia Lakin), and Maisy Goes Camping (Lucy Cousins). We painted with marshmallows using campfire colors (red, orange and yellow) and made handprint campfire pictures. Making our own s’mores (YUM!) was a real treat! We sang The S’more Song and A’Camping We Will Go, watched Barney’s Campfire Singalong video and went on a bear hunt (quite a few times) using our hand-made binoculars. We also talked about what we know about camping.
I’d say we’re off to a fabulous camping season! Our theme next week will be “Just Beachy!” We're looking forward to another fabulous week.
Sheri, Miranda, Fabi & Bethany
