With the recital and evaluations behind me, it's on to Summer Camps! I've actually been working on my newest camp, RoadTrip USA! for the last few months, but now that I'm down to the last 3 weeks, I'm knee deep in supplies and planning! I'm actually just about done and thought I'd give you a sneak peek at some of the activities we're doing.
Every road trip needs some documentation, so my amazing friend, Becky helped me put together these adorable travel logs for each of the campers:
Of course a road trip across the USA absolutely MUST include a stop at our nation's capital! And while we're in D.C., we're going to do some fun patriotic activites - - -
So I gave my friend, Becky a sketch of a game board I needed in order to drill the campers on their musical terminology. Keeping in mind that Congress makes our nation's laws, we're playing a game that drills the "laws" of music!
This is what she made for me. Isn't it awesome!? She's amazing!
We'll be having a bit of a discussion about laws, why they are important, and why musical "laws" help us to become better musicians.
Of course, this game is only one of many activities we'll be doing throughout the week. It's a busy time, but I'm having so much fun putting everything together and I'm very appreciative to Becky for helping me out!
I hope your summer plans/camps are shaping up as well!
