“Beach and Ocean Week” Blog Recap!

Hello all,

Monday marked the final day of the July session of camp.  It was also Homemade Ice Pop Day at PPA!  The students selected, mixed together, measured out, and poured assorted fruit juices into the Ice-Pop molds which were later placed in the PPA freezer.  After a few hours, the students were ready to dig in and enjoy the “fruits” of their labor :)  Yummy!



The August session of the 2017 Park Prep Academy Summer Camp began this Tuesday and boy, are we off to a great start!  As is always the case when a new session of summer camp begins, the returning students welcomed a new wave of campers into the group. The teachers were so impressed to see how warmly the returning students welcomed their new friends, showing them the ropes, and even lending a helping hand when needed! After a large group introduction during morning meeting at the start of the week, the students headed off to their morning activity stations. Working in small groups around the room, the students explored the classroom before being called over to the art table to create some beautiful artwork!

First, the new students added a colorful design to the back of their PPA Summer Camp T-shirt!  The artwork on the backs of these shirts will certainly help the PPA kids stand out as we head on all of our bus field trips this summer!



Since it was also “Beach and Ocean Week” at PPA, the students created the following sand pail art project on Tuesday…



and a water-colored seashell on Wednesday.



Thursday was WaCkY hAt DaY at PPA and the students DID NOT disappoint!



On Friday, the students headed down the block for the first field trip of August camp!  The students spent the morning at Family Fitness Mixed Martial Arts working with Master Vinh, Master Mike, and Mr. Leo!  The students learned the importance of being great listeners and also self-control!  They learned various martial arts movements such as front kicks and of course had a lot of fun in the process!  Be sure to take a look at some of the highlights from Friday’s field trip!  A special Thank You to Master Vinh, Master Mike, and Mr. Leo for such a wonderful field trip!
