Day of Play!

Boy what an exciting day the Fall P.S. 187 Day Of Play Gagalicious was at The Y. It may have been wet and grey out, but we were surely dry and all smiles. The P.S. 187 Day of Play gave counselors of Camp Twelve Trails the opportunity to come together for the first time since last summer. It was a great opportunity to reunite with all of our “WOW” Y families and their favorite counselors. It was great seeing all of those familiar faces and sharing yet another day together, creating lasting memories and inviting families to join us as Trail Blazers on the path to the brand new Camp Twelve Trails where campers and counselors alike will have the opportunity to play, grow, create, discover and explore. 

This year's Day of Play was of epic proportions, with not just one but two gaga pits! Camp Twelve Trails staff members were on hand to facilitate the games and we had many gaga gladiators enter the octagon. No matter how many times kids got out, they kept coming back from more. Our staff even got in the mix and but they were no match for the speedy skills and hard hitting power of the kids. There were many champions on this day and we even had some games where parents braved the gaga octagon, but the winner on this day was gaga: the sport that the kids just couldn't get enough of. 

In addition to gaga, Camp Twelve Trails' resident basketball expert and former NBA star Felipe Lopez was on hand running basketball clinics. Kids and parents alike worked on their dribbling skills, court movement, layups and jump shots, all in an effort to become better at the game, or simply to get a little more exercise. Nonetheless, having Felipe there this year was a super addition to the program. There was also a Yoga clinic for those looking for some peace of mind.    

Thank you to all of our parents who made this year's event so successful. We can't wait to see you this summer at Camp Twelve Trails, and next year at Day of Play!
