Camp soulGrow Summer 2017 - Week 4

Kayaking with Weekend Warrior Kayak Tours

Singing in Hampton Bays with La Maruzzella

We love singing and needed a Camp SoulGrow Hampton Bays theme song, so we were lucky enough to have Ms La Maruzzella come teach a singing camp! We learned how to warm up our vocal chords, create harmony, learned tongue twisters, and wrote the chorus to our song! Thank you La we love you soul much!!!

Water Testing with the Surfrider Foundation

Water Works at Third House

We hiked through the forest down to the beach to gather shells and treasures to make gifts for people we love.. then had a facepaint party! How wonderful it is to be able to be healthy, creative, and self expressive in the beauty of nature!

We love creating and painting! We used flowers we grew as paint stamps to learn how to paint delicately and patiently, using paint and water colors we made beautiful masterpieces and worked on a collective masterpiece together!

Pizza Making at Primavera Italian Specialties

We are so excited to have the Surfrider Foundation come to Hampton Bays! Since our place is right on the Peconic Bay, we walked down and learned about water quality testing! We learned about the importance of water quality, how to take water samples and test them, played a fun beach bingo game, and learned about ways we can help keep our oceans, waves, and beaches clean! What a beautiful day coming together and learning how we can save our earth! Then after we drew aquatic cartoons and learned about sea animals! Thank you @surfridereasternlongisland @surfriderfor another fun day of learning useful and productive knowledge in the beauty of nature!

Yoga with Ashlynn Manning at Third House

Painting using Natural Elements at Third House

We took our SoulGrow Bus over to South Lake and met up with the Surfrider Foundation! We learned about the importance of water quality, how to take water samples and test them, played a fun beach bingo game, and learned about ways we can help keep our oceans, waves, and beaches clean! What a beautiful day coming together and learning how we can save our earth!  Thank you Surfrider for another fun day of learning useful and productive knowledge in the beauty of nature! Then, in between workshops we went over to Third House to play some music and outdoor games :)

We had Ms April Boitano from Southampton Hospital back to teach us about ticks and how to be #tickwise... we watched a puppet show, played games, gave ourselves fake tick tattoos to help inform our parents what to do if we get a tick, and leaned so many ways to be tick wise with our eyes! Thank you Ms B for coming back again! Also thanks to Mr Paul Brady, Legislative Bridget Fleming's aid for coming and learning with us!!!

Acting at Third House

Pool Party at the Montauk Yacht Club

Ciao! Today we learned how to make pizza from scratch with Enzo of Primavera Italian Specialties! We learned how to use all the ingredients and make our own personal pizzas to enjoy! And they were soon good! Thank you so much Primavera for such a fun and delicious afternoon! Grazie Mille!!!!

What a gift it is to start our days in the beauty of nature with an awesome, invigorating, and relaxing yoga class under the tree with our yoga kid, Ashlynn Manning! Ashlynn always shows us fun ways to be able to push our bodies and expand our minds and hearts and we always feel so great after!!! Thank you Ashlynn for sharing your light! After yoga we made a custom Camp SoulGrow tablecloth masterpiece :)

Tick Wise Education with April Boitano / Gardening in Hampton Bays

Water Testing with the Surfrider Foundation in Hampton Bays

You know how we do summer! Our 100 foot slip n slide down our hill, waterguns, music, sunshine, laughter and popsicles!!!

Tick Wise Education with April Boitano at Third House

We love using our imaginations and energy to create joy- which is why we love acting! We had such a blast learning acting techniques and practicing accents, learned how to stay in character, played dress up, and performed our own skits on the porch of Third House! We definitely had such a blast letting our souls shine free!

One of the best parts about summer is being able to be active outside in the water! For our third year in a row, we went on an awesome kayak and paddle boarding session with Weekend Warrior Kayak Tours!!! We traveled via our SoulGrow Bus to the Acabonack Harbor in Amagansett and had such a fun, active, and peaceful time together exploring a new place! What a wonderful time as always-- thank you so much Weekend Warrior Kayak Tours you are absolutely the best!!!
