Summer recreation participants and leaders were having fun monkeying around last week.

More summer fun

Here’s a recap of what we’ve done so far in Burst into Summer! Recreation Programs 2012:

I can’t believe we’re approaching the end of July already.

Here’s a recap of what we’ve done so far in Burst into Summer! Recreation Programs 2012:

In our MiX It uP – A week of random fun! we had a blast going on a pirate treasure hunt around town, creating dinosaur fossils, and even got a visit from a giant gorilla on jungle day.

In Arts & Crafts Extravaganza  we expressed our creative sides by making birdhouses, clay pots, dream catchers, sand casted starfish, and canvases to name a few.

Last week in Around the World in 5 Days we visited a different place each day including Australia, Mexico, Egypt, Polynesia, and Asia learning about their different cultures through crafts and games.  In Wacky Wonders of Science we acted like mad scientists making volcanos, exploding canisters, bouncy eggs, snowflakes, and green pennies.

Here are the standings for Coed Beach Volleyball so far:

Sets on the Beach = 0 wins;   Sloppy Sets = 2 wins;   Sons of Beaches = 3 wins;   Storm = 3 wins;   Atch’s Team = 3 wins;   Jana’s Team = 1 win;   Enter Sandman = 1 win;   Fire Breathin’ Rubber Duckies = 2 wins

This week we’ve begun cooking up a storm in our Cooking and Baking Programs Kulinary Kids and Little Bakers.  Stay tuned for highlights.
