In effort to help improve your child's reading ability; I have found a great program through TD Bank; they have agreed to open a $10.00 Young Savers Account in the name of your child, if we manage to read 10 books this summer. But don't worry! I'm not giving you more work! This is an activity we are doing in the Camp. All books are intended to introduce them on how to effectively manage and save their money (Don't blame me for their asking for a raise in their allowance LOL!)
Every week we are going to choose a new book from the following list:
It is once again that time of the year for your kids to have fun with us at Summer Camp! The purpose of SC is to offer children an opportunity to have a summer camp experience, make new friends, practice independence, and develop self-confidence while polishing their manners and learn/hone their Spanish skills. The camp’s activities include swimming, arts/crafts, cooking, outdoor games, etiquette & manners, fieldtrips, Spanish, team competition and much more. Unfortunately our new facility is not ready yet, therefore our camp will be held at
Our first week of camp has come to an end but what a week it was! It was a good week. Everyone has gotten to know one another and have gotten along great. As you've probably already heard from your daughters this week, the girls have been busy.
Monday we kicked off camp with great activities and a fabulous group of campers. Camp has been going strong all week, activities such as arts & crafts, dancing, nature hunting, outside games, swimming, baking, etiquette, and a field trip to Chuck E Cheese's have kept our campers excited all week long.
Some afternoons we had a bit of unwanted rain but that didn't stop us. A little schedule juggling and some new activities got us through the rain and onto a beautiful rest of the week. After some indoor games and activities we all had a great time.
Our girls are forming new friendships - on our baking day Laura had the great idea of baking a cake for Vale; since it was her birthday - so we did! We also got her some balloons and gave her a surprise (Friday morning). Everybody was so concerned about Alexa, but after a short explanation they all understood and are now helping me take good care of her - the girls are cleaning their hands, reminding Alexa to clean her hands so we do not spread the germs! What a great group of campers!
Week One was a real good time for everyone and we can't wait for what week two has in store for all of us.
Don't forget to check out all of the week's photos at our Photo Gallery.
Until next week,
