Body in Action Week!

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

Week 2 – Hopkinton State Park
Week 3 – Museum of Science
Week 4 – Movie Theater
Week 5 – Ecotarium
Week 6 – Build-a-Bear/Bass Pro Shop

A Fantastic Day at Southwick’s Zoo!

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!

The Animal Adventures Continue!

The animal adventures continued today!  There was a great deal of animal conversation throughout the day.  One group played a game in which they talked about all of the animals they hope to see at the zoo tomorrow.  Other groups were making binoculars to help them on a safari through the jungle!  There were animals hiding in secret places all over camp including snakes and tigers and groups went on a scavenger hunt trying to find them all!  

Please remember to wear your camp shirt and sneakers for the field trip tomorrow.  Be sure to pack a snack and lunch for tomorrow’s trip as well.  We will return to camp at 1pm.  The bus route will begin at that time.
