Today was the last Water Wednesday of Summer 2021 for our Connections Crew! The students ran about the playground gleefully, washing construction trucks, climbing up the water slide, racing around the sprinkler, and most importantly, having fun! :)
We chose to celebrate the end of camp with a timeless "camp tradition": tie-dye t-shirts! Students were called in pairs to the outside studio during water day to ice-dye the clothing/masks that had been brought in earlier in the week. Ice-dying is an art method of crushed ice cubes sprinkled onto the fabric, then various dye powder bottles are used to make unique colors and patterns, or as Aida calls it, "making rainbows."
“Sam I have two things! One for me and one for my baby brother!”- Remy
“My hands are cold!” - Nora scooping ice onto the t-shirt “When you put yellow on the ice, it glows”- Aida

Finishing up hand-sewing/ indoor activities
We will miss the excitement of water day during drop-off, the cheers and laughter, and the happy faces your children bring each morning. Happy Water Wednesday!
