Kittens Week 3
Happy Summer Parents,
It’s week 3! Can you believe it? I guess time flies why you are having lots of fun. Team Kittens have had a busy fun filled week of activities.
One of their favorite activities was at Nature. The Kittens finally got a chance to get their hands dirty looking for frogs, fish and turtles in the pond. Moreover, some of them were very excited and scared at the same time to walk across the bridge but they had fun doing it. During drama, the Kittens were very excited to act out the skit, “Abiyoyo.” At music, we all welcomed a guest teacher who read,“Chicka, Chicka, Boom Boom.” They all marched and played instruments to the story.
How can we forget Art, the Kittens showed off their artistic skills making beautiful ponds and dragonflies. They took full advantage in making whatever they wanted with sticks during Makers. Swimming is one activity that the Kittens truly love. They enjoyed showing off what they have learned during free swim. This week we had the opportunity to cook with Chef T. We all made delicious edible butterflies with bananas, pretzels, apples and raisins. The best part for them was eating it.
Parents, please continue to label all of your child’s belongings. Also, please pack an extra set of clothes including underwear and a second bathing suit/ trunks. Please remember to drop off your child between 8:30 am – 9:00 am.
We look forward to seeing you next Wednesday on Visiting Day.
Thank you for trusting us with your children!

Week 1 was very fantastic! The Kittens were all ready to have fun and make new friends in camp. However, some of the campers had a hard time during drop off but quickly recover a few minutes later. During this week, the Kittens enjoyed some terrific activities including:
– Learned new friendship songs and making music with drums and sticks during music
– Listened and acted out the story, “Cap for Sale” in drama
– Learned how to swim in the pool during instructional swim
– Had lots of fun during our end of week sing a long assembly
– Played with bubbles and tasted different herbs in Nature
Parents, I would like to remind you to continue to label all of your child’s belongings. We are looking forward to seeing you next week!
Dear Parents and Guardian of the Kittens,
Welcome to the Friends’Central Tenderfoot Day Camp 2015!
My name is Jasmine Inniss (Ms. Jasmine) and I am the head counselor for the Kittens Bunk. I was born and raised in the beautiful island of St. Vincent and the Grenadines in the Caribbean. During the school year, I worked as an Assistant Teacher at the Haverford Center; teaching two and three year olds. Also, I am a student at Saint Joseph’s University. Additional, I am married and have two sons: They are 9 and 14 years old. When am not working or in school, I enjoy singing, dancing and spending time with my family,
This is my first year at Tenderfoot Camp and I am very excited to be here with your children. Over the course of the summer, I will be working with three wonderful counselors, Rose, Kalila and Joyce. It is going to be a fun filled Summer with lots of activities including swimming, sports, music, Spanish and so much more.
To ensure that your children have the most fun possible, as well as a great experience at camp, I would like you to review the following:
Please label ALL of your child’s belongings (especially swim trunks and towels). This makes it easy to identify any mixed-up belongings and return it to the rightful owner.
Please put a special marking on goggles and reapply, as needed so that there will not be any confusion.
Please keep the colored band that is given to your child on their wrist, once they are given one. It helps the lifeguards with free swim. If it needs to be replaced for any reason, we are more than happy to do that.
PLEASE APPLY SUNSCREEN DAILY BEFORE ARRIVAL, REGARDLESS OF WEATHER. WE WILL REAPPLY THROUGHOUT THE DAY
Please send your child to camp in a bathing suit or swim trucks regardless of weather or if they think that they may not want to swim. Sometimes the weather changes or they change their minds about wanting to swim.
Please send another bathing suit/swim trunks for afternoon swim.
Please arrive between 8:30-9:00 and dismissal is between 2:55-3:20. Please make sure to have your car sign visible, during drop off and pick up.
Please be sure to send in a note or notify the office if you are picking up your child early. This makes it easier for staff to know what is going on and make any necessary arrangements.
We have many fun filled days ahead of us at Tenderfoot Camp. Thanks for your help in getting this summer off to a great beginning. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
Have a fantastic summer….
