It was a little chilly at the pool today but the kids were fish anyway! The water was actually really warm, which made it a little more challenging to get out of the water. Before we went to the pool, we had a great demonstration about football. The children even learned the stance the offensive line uses to protect quarterbacks like Tom Brady!
Yesterday, our field trip was awesome! The weather was perfect and the kids had so much fun out on the lake. Our kayakers did a super job and everyone spent part of the day swimming in the lake too!
Next week is Science Week! We will head to the Science Museum in Boston. This day will be from 9am – 2pm. The permission slip is available below. Please return it as soon as possible.

We like to move it (just like King Julian in Madagascar)! Our bodies are in motion all this week! We will be doing activities related to sports, dance, nutrition, and more. We will even talk about the Olympics which will be starting really soon! Today is a perfect day for a discussion about hydration too. As we work on keeping our bodies in motion, we will also be sure to keep our bodies well hydrated with lots of water and plenty of breaks in the shade.
On Thursday, we will head to Hopkinton State Park for some kayaking and swimming! Make sure to print and bring in this: Hopkinton State Park Permission Slip

We had a fantastic time at Southwick’s Zoo today! It was a beautiful day and all of the animals were out and active. Monkeys were swinging through the trees and the white tiger was pacing back and forth. Campers had a chance to go on either the train ride or the sky ride and everyone had fun on both.
Tomorrow we will be swimming!! If possible, please send your child to camp in their swimsuits. Please pack a towel, change of clothes, and snack. We will be back from the pool at 12pm and the bus route home will start then. Hopefully the wonderful weather continues and the pool will be nice and refreshing!
