Big Blue Summer Week 4

Staff Highlight of the Week: Nature Rachel- Speciality teacher

Rachel joined us this summer after teaching elementary school students during the school year. Part of our new mission this summer is to explore the world around us and Rachel helps campers achieve this in nature studies. From our youngest campers to our oldest she teaches campers about helping eliminate pollution and getting the most out of what nature has to offer. "I love working with the kids, it is the highlight of my summer," says Rachel.

C - Curiosity- Ninja Warrior Hero Challenge

Ninja Warrior Hero Challenge: Big Blue Summer C.I.T.s (Counselors in Training) get the opportunity each week to showcase their developing counselor skills. This week’s C.I.Ts were in charge of adding creative obstacles and challenges to raise the difficulty level of our new Ninja Warrior course to “hero.” C.I.T.s spent afternoons brainstorming and mapping their course... and then did some quick thinking to adjust for the rain. Each bunk elected a counselor to run the course under a superhero alias on Friday afternoon. The C.I.T.’s efforts sparked campers’ imaginations and excitement as they cheered their favorite heroes through the course!

H - Honor- Real Life Heroes

Two officers from the New Jersey State Trooper SWAT Team made a guest appearance Wednesday to share some safety tips and a closeup look at some of the tools of their trade. Trooper Joe shared that uniforms and cool equipment are not what makes a hero: “The first thing I tell kids is the real heroes are teachers. They do more for them than they will ever truly know.” On Friday, Liberty Corner Fire Company wowed campers with a visit from six firefighters and an engine. In their writing rotations this week, campers also wrote cards and letters expressing their gratitude for the honorable service of our military members. Heroes are all around us.
