Adventures: Sounds of Summer

Olympic Legends (and Related Songs)!

  • During the week of July 18 our Adventures campers will be talking all about Olympic “legends” in the context of music!
  • In addition to learning more about Olympic legends such as Muhammad Ali, Mary Lou  Relton, Michael Phelps, Mark Spitz, and Jesse Owens, and many more, we’ll play a game to listen to and ‘match’ these athletes with the #1 song during the year in which they were truly legendary. Songs we’ll be listening to will include “That Haunting Melody” (Al Jolson); “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face”(Roberta Flack); and “Pennies from Heaven” (Bing Crosby)!

Summer Strumming: Greek-inspired Music & More!
