Fun, Fun English Camp: Matt Edition

Alli and I just finished our first semester in Korea. We both had to do a summer camp, which was a lot of work but very fun. My camp had 25 girls and lasted three days with four hours of classes each day, so it was hard to fill all that time.

I had an introduction lesson where the girls were divided into six teams and they had to make up a team name and symbols. They had fun coming up with English names for their teams. They all did a short presentation about their team symbol, which was very funny. Then we made kites, but the weather never got good enough to fly them. It rained almost the whole time.

The next day was a scavenger hunt and cooking. We made peanut butter bars and deviled eggs. The girls had fun decorating the eggs but did not like the taste; most of them wondered why Americans eat stuff like this!!

The final day was physical challenge day where each team competed in different events. There was a blindfold game, dizzy bat, jump rope and balloon toss. The weather was actually nice for a change so we had a lot of fun. One of the girls found a box of squirt guns so the last hour or so was just a water fight! Here ore some pictures of the camp.
