Week two was a wild one here at camp. Here’s what we were up to in specials:
We had a great second week in STEM! We started the week with a nature scavenger hunt where campers searched for different plants and animals around campus. Groups saw frogs, turtles, birds, and many other species of wildlife!
Campers also had a lot of fun building tower structures with plastic cups, popsicle sticks, clothespins, and wooden blocks. Campers explored different designs to see who could build the tallest and sturdiest structure!
Trailblazers competed in two different engineering design challenges this week – building and racing balloon powered cars and competing in a paper airplane design contest.
This week in sports and games we played a variety of games. Early in the week we went under the sea with Sharks and Minnows and got crazy with four way Zich Ball. Later we mashed up two favorite sports for wacky Tennis Baseball. Finally its not a week at Lincoln Summer Camp with out a few games of classic soccer.
Arts and Crafts:
This week was WILD at Lincoln Summer Camp! The Pioneers and Ramblers got their faces painted to look like animals and wore animal headbands with felt ears! They also made animal puppets using lunch bags, construction paper, and pipe cleaners.
Music and Drama:
Music and Drama was wild and zany as campers monkeyed around like party animals! Pioneers shared their animal impressions as we had a room full of elegant flamingos, fast cheetahs, slithering snakes, and loud gorillas. They enjoyed a rousing game of Duck vs. Cow and Sleeping Tigers. Ramblers used instruments to create animals noises in Guess the Animal Noise and stole zoo food as lions, tigers, and bears-oh my! Crusaders danced out to the Cha-Cha slide and competed in a rousing drama game of Ffeach (FastFoodElectronicApplianceCartoonHero). Both groups joined together to create a mannequin challenge of what it looks like to be at LSC. All of the groups tried their hands a making instruments. Trailblazers played a rousing round of Box of Lies and helped spray paint our Flip-flop-ophone instrument in Color war colors. Pioneers can now conga with egg maracas as Ramblers play scales on straw flutes and Crusaders tap away on their castanets. We are looking forward to our dance and acting competitions for color war next week!
This week at Epic Adventures we started off our week with an inflatable party where campers had the chance to jump on the bouncy house, play games, and race on the obstacle course! Despite stormy weather for the rest of the week, campers had an awesome time playing games like hide and go seek in the dark, laser racing, and guard the pin. The kids also had a blast playing pony express while running an obstacle course of our very own!
Our Pioneers set out to Jump On In. Campers tackled American Ninja Warrior style obstacles like the ring climb, zip line swing, the warped wall and more! Campers also enjoyed classic Jump On In favorites like the giant inflatable slides, the bouncy obstacle course, and trampoline basketball. They had a great time!
This week, the Ramblers rambled on down to Legoland. There, campers got to experience all the wonders that Legos have to offer! The Ramblers got to go on rides, play in the giant Lego play structure, act like a ninja and fight through a lazer maze, and see a bunch of 4-D movies. On top of all that fun, they got to play with thousands of Legos! Campers were also amazed by the replica of Boston made entirely of Legos. A relaxing lunch in the park capped off a fun-filled day. It is clear why Legoland remains a favorite at Lincoln Summer Camp!
Finally the Trailblazers had another amazing week of field experiences. The week began with our much awaited trip to Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort. You can read all about our first day of fun here. It featured a high ropes course, dinner, pool time, and of course phone free bunk time where campers played good-old fashioned sleepover games! On day two we hit the Mountain Adventure Course where campers rode the Mountain Coaster, Alpine Slide, Soaring Eagle, and Giant Swing. They also jumped on trampolines, showing off all the tricks they have been working on back at camp. Check out some pictures from all the fun below.
We also had a great week back at camp, where the Trailblazers made cookie dough for their trip, played a table tennis tournament (congrats to our winner Kyle!), a Kan Jam Tournament (congrats to our winners Gavin and Josh), knockout games, Apples to Apples and Mafia games, spray painted a Flip-Flop-A-Phone, had plenty of gymnastics time and of course competed in a host of trivia games including Rocking Bingo to crown this week’s Ice Cream League Champions. Congrats to the Cotton Candies for their win and the Vanillas for there very close second place finish. Both teams enjoyed icey treats at Altitude!
Their week ended with a trip to Altitude Trampoline park, where they flew high, jumped in the foam pit, played dodgeball, made amazing slam dunks and even got to climb the rock wall.
Last but not least, this week’s fun could not be contained to just photos – check out some video clips of our week!
