Summer Fun 2015 Week #2 Recap June 19, 2015

Week #2 of Summer Fun at Hi-Hills Day Camp ended on an incredible note! This week our campers’ schedules were jam-packed with various outdoor activities including low ropes, swim, sport court, tennis, archery and fishing. Indoors, campers relaxed in the game room, created masterpieces in pottery and arts and crafts, and of course played a good old game of gaga. Check out the highlights below!

Garden:

This week, each bunk trekked over to the garden, where Mrs. Prosen led campers through the beds to pick radishes, lettuce and strawberries to take home. What a treat!

Rain:

Here at Summer Fun, we never let the rain dampen our fun! With the game room loaded with board games, including jumbo chess and checkers, and Lego Land stacked with Legos to build and create, our campers certainly kept their spirits high. On Thursday, low ropes moved to Bruckner Hall, where Mr. Walsh and Missy led team-building exercises. In addition, the Athletic Center was converted into volleyball, tennis and badminton courts.

Go-Carts:

New to Summer Fun and Hi-Hills this year, the go-carts have already become a camp favorite. Campers raced around our circuit, and practiced safety at all times.

Arts and Crafts:

Our Summer Fun arts and crafts/pottery specialist, Savannah, prepared exciting projects this week. With finger puppets, puffy paint creations, and mushroom bobble-head pottery work, our campers definitely brought out their inner artists.

Performing Arts:

Taylor, our performing arts specialist, played an advanced charade game called Celebrity with several bunks, where campers acted out characters and famous people that they know. They also learned a theater warm-up and Hi-Hills favorite game called Zip Zap Zop. Campers showcased their skills during Friday’s talent show. From skits to songs to artwork, this week’s talent show was entertaining all around.
