In class we cooked corn bread with our children in class#4. In this fun and interactive activity the children learned skills needed in life such as, social-emotional development; pride and confidence in their skills and abilities, follow directions and using thinking skills to problem solve. Physical development; spreading and mixing, skills that help develop a child’s small muscle control and eye-hand coordination, and even early concepts of math and science. Cognitive development; Cooking inspires children’s curiosity, offering new opportunities to make predictions and observations. Language development; cooking is also a great opportunity for language development, children can match pictures to words and articulate questions inspired by their new experiences. Literacy; following written recipe with images.
It’s hard to believe that we are so close to the end of summer camp but what a summer camp it has been. This week was full of fun and adventure from the Discovery Cube in Santa Ana to our amazing ventriloquist. Thank you God for blessing us with such a fantastic week. Seven down…one to go!
What a wet and wild week it has been here at Summer Camp! This week we enjoyed learning about Prayer in Chapel, creating exotic creatures in art, questing with “Go Diego Go!” on popcorn and movie day, devouring delicious hot dogs for our Friday feast, and capping off our adventure with water slides and bounce houses! We thank God for blessing us with so many amazing experiences and look forward to what’s to come.
Our first week of Second Session has been a blast! We’ve been flying high with so many exciting things to do at camp. Whether it’s splashing in water play, singing in Chapel, or playing in our classrooms, there is always something fun to see, hear, touch and experience. It was especially exciting to finish out our week with a full camp bird show in the auditorium. We can hardly wait to see what God has in store for us next week.
What a week we’ve had here at camp! While the nation celebrated it’s independence, we all celebrated the final week of our first summer session. Our first four weeks of summer may have flown by but we will remember the fantastic times we’ve had together. We will especially recall the fun of our Pump and Splash day with temperatures hitting 113 degrees. God knew we’d need water play to deal with the heat and as always, He provided. The popsiclies also helped keeps us cool too.
God has blessed us with another extraordinary week of fun filled adventure here at summer camp. We successfully made it through our first field trip to the Aquarium of the Pacific and marveled at our Mad Science Show, Fire and Ice. We would like to thank all the parent drivers and chaperones for making our field trip to the aquarium possible. The kids had an outstanding time diving into the deep sea world of ocean life.
