While campers thoroughly enjoy the activities they get to participate in class, these activities rarely give the campers the chances many need to engage in physical activities. While the rain prevented any strenuous fun on Monday, I had the idea to hold “Boot Camp” as an optional activity for several of the campers on Tuesday. Campers who elected to sign up got a pretty complete workout in my opinion; they ran laps, did burpees, wall sits, and dynamic stretches, and then played a rather damp game of kickball (as the rain hadn’t abated fully). Still, many campers loved the chance to get to show off their athletic talents, and I even taught them a little bit of marching at the end. We certainly had more fun than a real boot camp, but hopefully it was just as good of a workout!
