Day One at MP Summer Camps @ The Meadowbrook School
The "Word of the Day" was COURAGE—and Meadowbrook's campers showed their courageousness every step of the way. MPS veteran Coach Rich and rookie Master Leader Gregory (his whistle always proudly at the ready) led their Meadowbrookers through a chock-a-block schedule of soccer, basketball, baseball, hockey, scooter hockey, gaga, tennis and more. It was a hot one out there, and so the site's beautiful campus offered two different shaded playgrounds for down time in between activities.
Campers Matt, big Ben and big Owen were enthusiastic athletes who never ran out of energy...and who loved every minute of competing with/against Coach Rich (himself a former pro-league baseball player). Meanwhile, one of the big highlights for Xyla, little Ben and little Owen was playing an imaginative game of "Pirates and Sea Monsters" with Master Leader Gregory on the playground's pirate ship. For Juniper and Theo, it was all about art projects, and the pair of kindergartners used crayons, papers and a stapler to make intricate, elaborate story books for well over an hour.
There was also the fun of lunchtime in the cafeteria, a dance party in the gymnasium, a best-joke contest, and a water-balloon battle that cooled everyone off. It was a day to remember and a great kick-off to an awesome summer at one of our newest location!
