The first day of classes were fabulous yesterday! My campers said some of their favorites classes were The Hobbit, Russian: Language and Culture, and Magically Miraculous Math. I also loved seeing all the balloon animals that students made in Clowning!
The different optional activities the SCATS campers participated in were Capture The Friends (friendship bracelet making), Game Room, Sidewalk Chalk, Extreme Competitive Charades, Blob Tag, 4-square, dodgeball, yoga, and LARPing (live action role playing)! Fellow counselor Kyle Ritter and I hosted the 4-square games. The campers were very competitive and had a lot of fun!
We also had our first “Community Time” last night. All the campers got to know each other a little better and all the counselors got to meet more of the students! Outside, campers could be found throwing a football, soccer ball juggling, or playing in a volleyball circle. In Schneider Lobby there were different card games being played and two amazing, young pianists showing everyone their skills. Upstairs on the 4th floor, there were more games being played and campers were dancing to the Cupid Shuffle.
I am so glad I have the privilege of being a SCATS counselor this year and I cannot wait to get to know more of the campers in these next two weeks!
