A Great Day of Fun and Games
At the beginning of the camp week, campers are separated by age into groups of 8-10 and given a counselor who will be with them the remainder of the week. Enrollment permitting, campers are also separated by gender with boys and girls camps running separately, but concurrently. The focus of the activities is on basic instruction, participation, fair play and having fun. A typical day looks something like this:
9:00-9:30 am Campers play a large group activity that is sure to get the juices flowing! This game usually works on motor skills, agility, and spacial awareness.
9:30-11:00 am During this time, the campers break into their smaller, counselor-led groups and play a multitude of games such as dodge ball, kick ball, pillo pollo, and floor hockey.
11:00-12:00 am LUNCH BREAK! By this time, campers are really hungry, so they sit down and enjoy a packed lunch from home, and a drink supplied by Laffalot. After lunch is finished, a fun, mildly active game is played to facilitate digestion.
12:00-1:30 pm The kids return to small groups and continue playing various games including flag tag, volleyball, soccer and crazy ball.
1:30-2:00 pm To end the day on a high note, another large group activity is held with all camper groups coming together for one last half-hour of fun.
