Westfield Y Summer Camps Highlight Drama and Trips
WESTFIELD — Over 300 children and 50 teens concluded the Westfield Y’s second session of summer camp last week with a variety of activities and learning experiences.
At the Children’s Center on Elm Street, Laura Del Ray’s Pre-K Kamp of 3, 4 and 5 year olds produced a play, under the direction of Costume Capers. Costume Capers outfitted the children as princesses, knights, animals and other characters.
The story of the princesses with holes in their shoes was acted out by the children, while adults in the audience provided sound effects. The end of the play revealed that the princesses had holes in their shoes because of a witch’s spell that made them dance at night with the knights in the forest.
Role playing, makeup, stage production, improvisation, comedy, music and more are part of this program.
Camp Blue Sky campers, under the direction of Christina Taibo, learned about birds, nests and chlorophyll in leaves. The kids enjoyed games like “Capture the Flag” and “Manhunt.” Each camper made an article of tie-dye clothing to celebrate the week’s theme of the 60s.
On Wednesday, weekly trip day, the campers wore their special identifying T-shirts and headed for a morning of bowling, followed by a walking trip to see Muppets from
Space at the Rialto Theatre in Westfield. A second trip to Camden Aquarium allowed the children to see penguins, fish, sharks, stingrays and other sea animals.
Summer Fun Club enjoyed a trip to the Bronx Zoo and a walking trip downtown to Bruegger’s Bagels, where they were able to see bagels being made and to enjoy a snack and drink.
The Y has welcomed Raimonda and Diana Maliqi from Kosovo, new Westfield residents, to this section of the Y’s camp program. Both girls enjoyed the trips and games, but named swimming as their favorite camp activity.
The new Leaders in Training program welcomed over 45 teens to its two sessions of leadership/values training and service work in the community. Combined with over 30 teens in the Counselor in Training program, youth between the ages of 11 to 15 developed new leadership skills, attended youth exchange programs at Fairview Lake YMCA, and had time for fun at day trips in the local area.
