Art and Archaeology – Pauline Williams
We are having a wonderful time in Art and Archaeology! The children have transitioned nicely into the flow of our daily schedule, participating in our short meetings, engaging with friends in play and enthusiastically participating in our archaeological activities. So far we have outfitted ourselves with vests and binoculars, crawled into a cave to do some cave painting and excavated a few artifacts. The rest of the week will be an exploration into the ancient cultures of Egypt and China. Thank you for entrusting your child with us this week.
Swimming – Josh Ponter
All swimmers have been making improvements as a group to our technique! Almost everyone has gotten to the point where they can now swim in the deep end safely. While we are still honing some skills for some of our little guys we are also learning flip-turns, different strokes, and building endurance.
Tennis – Moorestown Tennis Club
The youth tennis campers have been having a lot of fun this week learning and practicing the game of tennis! Monday the scholars worked on their rallies. Tuesday they learned to serve the ball and volley close to the net. Wednesday the students continued to practice their serves close to the net, but expanded on this skill by learning and practicing how to return a serve. Thursday the students will learn tactics of the game and Friday we will finish the week of with fun games that use a culmination of all the skills the scholars have learned!
Soccer – UK Soccer Elite
The campers have spent an extensive amount of time working on using the correct part of their foot to strike a ball, learning which parts give them the most control and accuracy. We have taken part in a number of games and relay races that force the campers to be accurate with their passes while also learning to properly communicate with their teammates. We will continue to work on these skills through repetition until our campers have a mastery of their passing skills!
