Singing and Dancing Through the Week

Campers are singing and dancing their way through the week.  Today, we discovered that we have a fabulous mix of singers, dancers, musicians, actors, and directors…everyone found a way to be a star today!  We played musical games including musical towels (a twist on the usual chair version).  Some campers seized the opportunity to design their own instrument while others prefer a behind the scenes role and decided to make a director’s clapperboard to help them direct a performance.  Hollywood may think that they have all of the celebrities, but we have plenty of superstars right here at camp!

Hiking, a Horse Named Princess, and More!

Fitness Week continued today with some wonderful activities!  We had some special events today.  Joe, one of our young CITs, presented the campers with a lesson about hiking.  He talked about equipment needed for hiking and offered the children with important safety tips.  We also had a special visit from some farm animals, including a horse named Princess.  The children were able to see the horse up close and some children even had the chance to brush her.  The children had the chance to create special team jerseys today after learning about some local sports teams.  The jerseys looked great as the children worked their way through the special obstacle course that had been set up.  It seems like everyone is ready for a trip to Hopkinton State Park and I think the muscles are ready for kayaking, swimming, and walking on the beach!
