This year we tried out the Boy Scout Day Camp. It is the first time I have done a camp for my children in over 3 years for various reasons. I know the woman who organized this camp and after talking with her, I thought it might be a safe environment in which to try another Day Camp. I volunteered to be an adult helper so I could be there for my children should it become too much for them. Although we did have to leave early one day, all in all, both kids did well and they got to try out some new skills.
Learning how to care for the US flag which included folding it properly and putting it on a flag pole and taking it down. Kids learned that the US flag should never touch the ground
Lots of sport activities in large and small groups.
Learning to tie knots
I learned that my children have no upper arm strength something for us to work on at home.
Sling shot practice, first time my kids have ever held a sling shot
BB gun practice, again first time my kids have ever held any type of gun. I don't even allow play guns in the house.
We weren't able to do archery because every time they brought out the bows and arrows it rained:(
Lots of team building activities. It should be noted that 6 and 7 year old really have no clue about team work, and it wasn't just my kid:)
Lots of learning activities. The kids learned about seeds, built a bird house, learned about the color wheel and so much more.
Camp lasted all week and the kids and I were totally exhausted. We had a lot of fun. While we still have some work to do with my youngest I thought it went well considering. Looking forward to next year.
