Wet-N-Wild Wednesdays

 

continued

Later there was a round of Number Ball. The kids and Gail stood in the pool in a big circle. She tossed a couple of balls into the center and began shouting out who could retrieve them.

"If your name begins with J!"
"If you have green in your bathing
suit!"
"If you have two lips!"
"If you think this water is coooold!"


More parachute games finished up the day. I was impressed with the involvement of the staff. They all seemed genuinely gung ho and made each game an adventure. Gail told me that once a year they even fill up a kiddie pool with Jell-O and let the kids jump around in it. "It's really disgusting," she said matter-of-factly, "but the kids really like it."    (end of article)
