Camp Sparkle

Camp Sparkle was HUGE success! We had over 60 campers, CIT’s and Counselors combined!

Everyone had a great time during the 3 power packed days of Camp Sparkle! Here is what they did:

Day 1: Music and Art and Karate! Barry Keefe, Adria Light and Vince Stranges lead us in Circle of Song, as we used our shaker instruments that we created in art. Great time!

Sarah, from World Cup Karate, in Linwood, lead the group in an awesome karate program! It was so energetic and fun!

Day 2: Animals, Yoga and Color Run! Our own Lisitski Family (especially GV) provided us with a terrific, educational Animal Show with their very own interesting pets!

Yoga class was conducted by our talented volunteers, April Tamburo and Mark Pino. They did a dynamite job!

The Color Run was lead by our very own expert physical education teacher friend, Shelley Safer! Along with a few Noogie helpers, Shelley went way beyond…..

Kona Ice Truck made a visit and our campers and volunteers enjoyed the delicious shaved ice!

Day 3: Juggling Life, Inc visited us! They are an amazing group of talented Jugglers from North Jersey and NYC, who fundraise throughout the year to do special shows and workshops for children. We were so fortunate to have this excellent program!

Our adult friends and family members joined us as we sang our Camp Sparkle 2015 Theme Song, ‘Shiny Happy People’ and we enjoyed delicious snacks together!
