Sound of Music

Each day of our South American themed week, our campers delved into South American culture by singing songs in Spanish and practicing a song to learn all of the countries and capitals. They enjoyed using the rhythm sticks and maraca shakers to add to the beats and bring a South American feel. They also enjoyed the opportunity to have dance parties to traditional South American music.

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)!
