Week 3 is over and what a fun week it has been! We’ve all been very busy at camp in tons of different activities.
The social skills group have watched a few bits of the new Pixar movie ‘Inside Out’ which featured all different emotions inside a 12 year old girls head- Joy, Disgust, Sadness, Anger and Fear. The campers then used the different emotions to play out games and learn about what others are feeling. They have then applied this to their own play during break times to help conflict resolution and build friendships.
The study skills group have been working hard on maths and reading this week! The classroom has been an area of excellent focus and concentration with our great new leader – Michaeline. They have made a lot of progress this week and are sure to go back to school ready to impress with all their new skills!
The friendship group have been doing a lot of puzzles this week and working on learning the Alphabet! They have written on cool plastic sheets that they can rub off and start again on, no need for wasting paper. Two of the friendship group have struck up a particular friendship this week and have been keeping the volunteers on their toes with their energetic games of chase.
Our outing this week was to the Luminarium at the Fete de Geneve! The Luminarium is a dome like tent filled with corridors and rooms that are all lit up in different effects. The campers were treated to a boat ride across the lake, as well as a trip on a train!
We also had a few mini outings during the week to the park and to the plage. The campers did a treasure hunt at the park and found lots of animals which won them a ‘sweet treat’. At the plage the campers requested to be buried, so naturally we obliged.
Finally we have the Art room, where many a painting was done. The campers were tasked with decorating plastic bottles! Some chose to create animals (as was the theme this week), others created cool colours by mixing paint together to make fusions.
All in all it has been a fun filled week! Keep an eye out for the next blog post which will cover the last week of camp.
