Fourth of July Extravaganza 2017!

It’s the Fourth of July! And we love to celebrate: Beaver Summer Camp style! On Monday, all Beaver campers had the opportunity to attend Beaver’s Grand Fourth of July Extravaganza! Decked out in red, white, and blue for the occasion, campers and staff all descended upon the gym for the festivities.

Emceed by two of our own Senior Campers, Spencer and Stella, the program began with a bang, and of course singing and dancing! Woodshop Director John Walker performed “The Star Spangled Banner”, followed by CIT Director leading “The Beaver Way” as a full camp sing along.




Campers in the Dance Elective showcased their work this session in true patriotic style with an acrobatic performance to Estelle’s “American Boy.”



Then to the main event: The DANCE OFF!  Camp Staff teams and songs for the event were:

Specialists: Justin Bieber “Despacito”
Lower Camp: Miley Cyrus “Party in the USA”
CITs:  Mike Posner “Cooler than Me”
Middle Camp: Rick Astley “Never Gonna Give You Up” (80s style)
Upper Camp: Bruno Mars “24 Karat Magic”
Senior Camp: Back Street Boys “Rock Your Body”

Camp staff teams worked hard to perfect their routines for the occasion, dancing their hearts out for the audience! Ultimately it was LOWER CAMP taking home top prize and bragging rights.  Although the CITs “made it rain” with Beaver Bucks, they couldn’t top the creativity of the Lower Camp team.  Their fun routine included pedal karts and homemade cardboard cars, lifting them into first place!


The dance routines were followed by intense 2-way camp staff tug of war: specialists vs. lifeguards and middle camp counselors vs senior camp counselors. The winners of the first round – specialists and senior camp – duked it out for tug of war domination! The final tug crowned SENIOR CAMP counselors as the kings!



Following the program, campers were dismissed to afternoon activities and to enjoy cold, delicious red, white, and blue popsicles!  YUM!
