A Perfect Day!

Today, The Sunshine Group enjoyed a sunny day in the pool! Everyone had fun swimming and playing with friends! We played Marco Polo, lounged in the water, played football and splashed around with friends- it was a perfect day!

Next week there will be a change in pool/ field trip schedule. We will go to the pool Thursday and go on the field trip Friday. We will be going to the Walpole Children’s Theater to see Wizard of Oz, which only has a Friday daytime showing. We should be back by 12:00 for a normal dismissal.

Fun at the Zoo

We had a blast at the zoo today! We saw so many animals- zebras, giraffes, monkeys and many more. Some of us even got to see an elephant take a bath!!

Despite a rainy forecast, we got lucky and didn’t get any rain! Let’s hope that continues for the rest of the summer!

Tomorrow we will be heading to the pool! Don’t forget to have children wear their bathing suits in the morning and pack the following items in their backpacks: a change of clothes, any flotation devices that your child wears to swim, a towel and a snack. Please remember to apply sunscreen at home, because we cannot apply sunscreen to your children!

Science Fair

Today was a great second day of science week here at camp! Today Red Group had a lot of fun learning and experimenting! We played planet kickball, spent a lot of time building in the sand box, and playing with “Orbeez”! We are all very excited for the zoo field trip tomorrow!

The Orange Group started the day off at arts and crafts by building contraptions for an egg drop out of recycled materials, and making our own aquariums! Then we had a lot of fun playing on the playground, in the sandbox, and at the water slide! Then we tested our egg drops with a lot of success! We had a lot of fun at the science fair at the end of the day where we did a lot of activities like rockets, and learning about some fun experiments!

The Yellow Group started the day with a scavenger hunt, infection tag, and blog tag! Then we made water bottle tornados, and spaghetti and marshmallow structures! At the science fair we played with “oobleck,” and cups that we turned into telephones using string!

Today the Green Group ran an amazing whole camp science fair! Some of the stations included elephant toothpaste, baking soda and vinegar rockets, catapults, sponge balls, “oobleck,” cup phones, marble towers, and puffy paint! We can’t wait for another amazing field trip tomorrow!

We are so excited for our field trip to Rodger Williams Zoo tomorrow! A reminder to wear the yellow camp shirts, and a rain jacket because we will be going rain or shine! There is also a late dismissal tomorrow. We are planning on being back at 1:00 p.m!! The bus route will start after we get back to camp! Thanks in advance for your patience!
