Day 3 at camp was spent exploring acceptance of others and how it related to happiness. The day began with the teachers performing a skit that portrayed bullying and the alternatives to being mean to each other. The campers then performed their own bullying scenarios for each other. The theme of the day was presented again during tap, ballet, and salsa. During tap class the younger campers perfected some basic tap skills and performed a short combination for each other. In ballet class, the older group learned a classical ballet barre routine and worked their leg muscles with various jump combinations. All the campers got to experience salsa class where they got a taste of not just salsa, but also meringue and bachata. They explored partner work along with individual salsa steps. A few of the campers opened up about their experiences with Hurricane Katrina while discussing cultural backgrounds and the acceptance of change. The journaling project of the day consisted of a beginning, middle, and end to a story about bullying and acceptance. The campers pulled from real and imagined experiences to describe a conflict and a resolution. In art class we made tie-dye butterflies from coffee filters and markers. The butterflies will all hang together in a garden during the art show on Friday. A few of the camp counselors surprised the group with a beautiful vocal rendition of the national anthem while making their butterflies. Marissa shared some of her intricate hip hop choreography with the older campers during choreography class while the younger campers created movement maps during improv and games. They used directional changes to face and overcome an obstacle, teaching them about the importance of accepting change. The day came to a close with choreography creation, where the campers were challenged to add a few salsa moves and partnering into their developing dance numbers. As parents came to pick up the campers, it was obvious both the campers and teachers were excited to return the next morning and continue exploring the concepts of happiness.
