YD Tech Academy

Day #3:

Today was the last day of camp, so we the day was a bit more unstructured as we focused on celebrating the LAST DAY OF SUMMER!! Yesterday we had introduced 4 Square and the kids absolutely loved it, so we brought that out again. The kids were really picking up on some strategy, and it was getting pretty intense!
One of the other PCVs brought up the idea of reusing big water and soda bottles as bowling pins. You fill the bottom up with an inch or so of water, and the kids were willing to wait as long as it took for their turn to come up. They loved it!

Helping Andy translate the rules of "H-O-R-S-E"
The three legged race went over really well, and the little kids especially were so cute!

Please notice that our group is 100% BOYS. Still not sure how this happened because I had only girls pretty much all summer... It was great to see the little ones (new 5th graders) and the older (8th grade) ones interacting so well! My organization wants to start working more with some of the younger kids since the core group I started with is starting to age out on us, but seeing the big and little kids play so well together keeps me optimistic for still including the older kids.
We finished the day with cake and ICE CREAM SUNDAES!!!

The kids have been all smiles the last three days.

Job well done!
