Kids Camp 2010 – The Best Yet!

Kids Summer Camp 2010 at BGSU is not just another “Day Care” camp. Things are changing in a big way and we want you to be a part of it! This is a look inside at what your campers are really getting out of this experience. BGSU Summer Kids Camp had its start in 2008 and has been a staple program every summer since then. It has always been a good camp alternative to the traditional baby-sitters or day care facilities. But this year it’s going to be different. Micha Seither, Camp Director, talks about turning a camp that was good in its previous years into something great this year!

It takes a lot more than just wanting to make the camp better. Restructuring, planning and bringing in the best people in their fields were some of the steps taken to get this camp up and running. A host of people from various departments have helped in the transformation of this year’s Kids Camp. Changes in the areas of fitness and exercise, health and wellness, snacking choices, preparation and communication and overall marketing of the camp are what this year’s successes are based on.

“We have components in this year’s camp that were not present in the previous years. These are critical areas that we are so glad to be able to implement every other day in camp.” Laurie Westbeld speaks about the newly added fitness and wellness sessions. The session will alternate days and will be done twice a week each. The fitness session will be coordinated and lead by Liz and will last about an hour. Liz will be focusing her efforts on getting the campers to understand fitness and why it is so important to their daily routines. Latisha is a wellness intern at the SRC and she will be conducting the health and wellness sessions. Latisha’s aim is for the campers to practice good health, such as hygiene. Other elements like community safety and bicycle riding will be discussed throughout the eight weeks of camp. It is truly going to be great to have both Liz and Latisha on board for this year’s Kids Camp.

Included in the price (which has been lowered for this year) for camp, each child will receive two snacks a day. It is really simple to order some snacks that are prepackaged and processed and hand them out to the campers. There’s little thought involved and little mess to clean up afterwards. However, with the new focus of camp being a well rounded experience, we wanted to make sure we followed through in this area as well. This year we have revamped the snack menu with fruits, vegetables and healthier alternatives for ice cream. It has been a task to restructure the snack menu because for the most part, budget doesn’t allow for the kids to have fruits and vegetables for every snack, every day. We have done what we can though and are putting the finishing touches on the snack menu next week. Look for the Weekly Newsletter that will get sent home with your campers for the snack list for that week.

The Weekly Newsletters mentioned above are our way of communicating to the parents or guardians about the activities and events that their campers are involved in. Laurie Westbeld spoke about how camp this year is going to be more informative. “We want the parents to know what snacks their kids are eating and what field trip they are going on this week. We want to communicate this information to the parents to show that we have it organized and planned out.” Laurie and countless others have been hard at work to make this camp the best it can be.

  1. Veneerѕ are fine shellѕ which are bonded to each of the teeth.
    It is made of thin porcelain that’s bonded
    with the broken tooth to regain it look perfectly whole again. The TMJ condition is
    forgotten most of the tіme which is a bad thing because this
    condition has the ability to imitate a vast variety
    of symptoms and sickness. More than one half of orthodontic cases Һave to ԁo with
    jaw gгowth, he said. In fact act as a bеst աeapon to make impressions to others, whether professionally or socially.
    The new teϲhniques in cosmetic dentistry are offering
    people with a fresh new facial apρearance and a beautiful smile.
    One might guеss that these dental decoгatіons were marks of
    social class becausе of the vɑlue of the decorations. Whеther the
    teeth ɦave beеn damaged due to an accident, disease or sheer neglеct,
    now you have the oppоrtunity to correct thе damage done.
    For most aԀults, they aren’t keen about getting the traditional metal braces.
    You will gradually have a smile that reflects thе real you.

  2. Besides teaching kids about safe social network through a fun online virtual world, Membership Penguin is devoted to helping kids
    get involved in creating change around the world even at the mostt youthful ages.
    One iss simply by properly optimizing the content itself,and the other, the more complicated way, is
    to go into the unique codes and insert a few lines wwhich I will highlight later.

    The pool is open plus uncovered at mature shoulder height, and mmy boys loved getting a few soft
    splashes oon their head fom penguin manoeuvres.

    The boys loved squeezing next to each other into the circular viewing window andd announced with excitement each time a
    penguin zipped by glass. In this online game, you take control of the penguin avatar.

    The purpose of thhe original game in Yetisports is to have a
    yeti smack a penuin with a membership and try to get it
    fly as far as possible. Pawel has made more chaotoc
    variants of this sport that features decapitation, spikes, a big spiky club
    and mines. Not tto forget a re-release of original has allowed
    movements of thhe penguin in flight. hit the penguin with good time and he goes soaring.

    The ange of the penguin is made to manage using the arrow
    secreets as he catches air flow currents to stay in the
    environment. It has two dance floors and several bars at the club.

    Club Penguin: Elite Penguin Force: Herbert’s Vengeance was released in 2010 and
    it is thee sequel towards thhe popular first sport.Unlike the first online gamme Herbert’s Revenge attracts heavily from the on the web Club Pemguin edition and is focused
    onn kids too young (or unable) to play the game online.
    Thee popular gameply of Cllub Penguin is now available onn the particular Ninttendo DS.
    This fun adventure video game will appeal tto childre
    of all ages (Club Penguin member or not).
    Take on the function oof Elite Penguin Force agent and
    solve the mysteries of Club Penguin Island
    in over a dozen agennt missions.
    The more you strike in a row, the particular fster your
    penguin will go. After you hit enough of them and you also get to a slope, go up the
    slope and jump inn order to get major airtime, which will make for
    easy points without crashing (less obstacles to contend with until you land again).

    Recently on the official Club Penguin blog, Chattabox announced a new challenge for
    penguins. To become completely honest, I don’t know what Membership Penguin were thinking with this post
    and also the whol party idea. We go too college for mmost of the dayy Golf club Penguin, we have sufficient school in our ife already… but iit looks like we’ll have too deal with a
    College & Skate celebration on the 18th September.
    In my opinion, Club Penguin’s Sled Racer Applicatjon has stunnning images,
    and looks to be cknsidered a lot of fun.
