Since I'm in denial about school starting this week, let's recap the classes and camps that the children were involved this summer. I have to say, I was really impresssed with each and every activity that we were apart of this summer. Sioux Falls has some really great camps to offer.
Avery took advantage of the camps more than anyone else this year. She was a busy bee, but not crazy busy, you know. I loved the balance of our summer with play, relaxation, camps/classes, vacations, and family time. It's been a good one.
And, just for my reference next year when I will surely forget the contacts, here is the specific info on each camp.
The Harrisburg art council puts on quite a show with their camps. Avery was involved in art, drama and music camp. They are affordable and run by school teachers. The kids have a blast with all the creative projects, games and activites they provide the kids. Plus, Avery really learned some new skills. The Harrisburg art council offers the sign ups through the elementary at the end of the year. The classes fill up very quick.
Drama camp. This camp was the biggest stetch for Avery. But she learned a lot.
Mrs. Smith kept Zach after school to work individually on his computer skills. He learned to make a power point presentation. He was very proud of this accomplishment...just ask him about it, he will gladly share.
The first camp was through the school district. She enjoyed her time there and really learned some new moves and drills. The camp was 2 hours a day for 4 days. It was held at the high school.
With her new found confidence she enrolled in TIBBS camp. This camp is known for being hard core! Only serious players should apply. Hard practices, drills and skills are taught there. They will refine your form and push your endurance. The reputation is TIBBS is TOUGH. You come home exhasusted each day from camp. And, yes what they say is true. She was exhausted, it was hard and unfortunatley it also shook her confidence. She didn't like this camp. So I am not sure about next year. It seems if she's still interested in basketball at the time ..then this camp is a must. It's really that beneficial. However, if she doesn't feel the passion she will probably skip it. We shall see what a year brings.
