Summer Camp 2012 Week 3 Recap & Week 4 Intro

Posted by: Stephanie Schiff Tags: There is no tags | Categories: Programs


This week our campers explored Sea-eSCAPE by discovering, making, and creating:
  • Octopops
  • Sharks and minnows
  • Pirate swords and hats!
  • Treasure hunting
  • Bobbing for fish
  • Creating an ocean
  • Making fishing poles and going fishing
  • Sand art
And so much more!…
Wednesday our special guests were from the Quickstart program (a

program designed to introduce young children to tennis). They learned how tennis players train, completed an obstacle course warm-up, and juggled low compression balls on their rackets.  The players got to rally and practice their newly learned skills.  This child-friendly approach to tennis was a huge success and we highly recommend the program to young, aspiring tennis players!   Parents check it out:  we clearly have some Andy Roddicks and Williams Sisters in the making!  An enormous thank you to our special guests Coach Nikki and Coach Kristy!

For Friday’s field trip, ourcampers went to the popular Denver attraction, the Downtown Aquarium!  From the Great American Wilderness and Rainforests of the World, campers were immersed in the wonders of the water.  They especially enjoyed watching the  people in scuba gear feeding the sharks, fish, sting rays, and other sea creatures!  The biggest hit, amongst most campers, were the adorable dolphins.
