Camp Cementon: Kids take trip to Crystal Cave


Last week’s camp article was printed in error. The correct week seven and eight follow.

Week seven’s theme at Camp Cementon was “funky fun.” We dodged some storms by playing dodgeball inside and soaked up as much as we could by playing Jump the River outside. The campers also enjoyed creating beautiful drawings they hung on the camp walls and playing Four Square inside.

Later in the week, we watched “Despicable Me 3” and munched on some popcorn.

Week seven was a really fun and eventful week at camp. We were introduced to some new campers who got to take part in all the fun games.

The children were very good this week. They played all games, listened right away and even helped us during our craft-making. The week flew by as so much went on.

On Monday, the children were energized and ready for the week to begin. We played a lot of games outside since the weather was awesome. We played Fastest in the West, Ant Tag, dodgeball and other games. After the games, we went to the pool, and the kids always enjoy that.

Camp Cementon: Wet weather can’t stop the camp fun

Wednesday, August 1, 2018 by VANESSA HADEED COUNSELOR in School

During week six at Camp Cementon, students experienced a rainy week but were still able to make it an enjoyable one. Monday started off with a little bit of free time in the morning and quickly transitioned into indoor competitive games, such as Four Square, Silent Ball, Night at the Museum and more. Periodic breaks of no rain throughout the day led the campers to be able to enjoy an outdoor game of Pac-Man. After lunch time, the campers remained indoors to watch “Zootopia” and enjoyed popcorn along with the movie.
