Camp Let Loose was a fun Jewish camp through the Chabad of Poway. Camp is from 10 AM to 2 PM.
There were about 22 kids this year. Each kid had 1-2 buddies and each day we did something different. Each morning, we started with circle time. The kids got their instruments and the rabbi put on music and we sang to the tune of “You Are My Sunshine.” Also one of the counselors led everyone with “Shimah Israel Adanoi Elehanu Ahoni Echad. Hear O Israel the Lord our God, the Lord is one.”
Monday, I met my buddies, Olivia, Danit and Chloe, who were so kind to me. We did carnival games in the morning. In the afternoon, we made a frame out out leather and planted a seed in soil.
Tuesday we did yoga, which felt so refreshing! My favorite poses were the deep breathing and the cat/cow.
Wednesday was sports day so we did an obstacle course and a scavenger hunt which was so interesting. We found 2 candles, a braided challah, wine, and a happy taffy candy.
Thursday we went to the Children’s Discovery Museum in Escondido which was a cute place. They had an area for medical stuff like x rays, and temperatures. My favorite part of it was when we pet some chickens. They have a barn leading to this area where they had a stall for chickens only.
Friday was water day but I didn’t want to get wet because I had my jazz band concert that night! During water day, they had a water slide, and water balloons.
Overall, if you take your campers to this camp you will have a neat experience. This camp is for kids with special needs and is for all ages. If you’re a counselor, you have to be at least 15. I have been going to this camp for so many years. My favorite memory of camp was when we pet the chicken. Overall, my camp was so exciting! Thank you for making my summer amazing!
Special shoutout to Chloe, Olivia and Danit.
