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.
