In our second week of camp, campers had a chance to explore diverse interests by choosing from the following activities: drama, collages, ceramics, nature explorers, volleyball, and friendship bracelets! As campers felt more comfortable, their shyness melted away (the 95 degree whether helped too.)
Xavier led the campers in ceramics after showing them some of his own incredible work. After 3 days of forming the pots and sanding them smooth, they were ready to paint.
Xavier marveled at how careful and focused the campers were!
At Nature Explorers, campers explored the environment around the community center. Armed with all sorts of nature books, they drew, collected, and labeled local plants and animals.
Drama was where things got creative (and goofy). After playing games like Charades, Telephone, and creating skits, the campers chose characters to act out. Their costumes were elaborate, and included Katniss (complete with bow and arrow), Olaf, and Mario.
Other highlights from the week included "Flag Tag," making keychains, and lots of water games!
