Week One Recap
This week at the La Conner Club, Members took part in Olympic Week. On Monday, Members created flags and learned about the Opening Ceremonies by participating in Olympic Trivia. Tuesday was the official Olympic Day in the Town of La Conner. To honor the event, mock summer games were held. Balloon Taekwondo, Soccer, and Torch Run Relay put Members’ athleticism, cooperation, and sportsmanship to the test.
In the tech lab Members took part in Fraboom’s Drawing Academy. This week, the instructors taught Members how to draw beavers in a live, fully interactive classroom setting. Fraboom is the world’s first live interactive online children’s museum. Children can attend real-time classes featuring live teachers, play games, watch cartoons, collect points, create a customized brain character and participate in a variety of interactive activities meant to entertain while stimulating the mind. La Conner Club Members gain Gold Level Access for free during the summer session.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, 12 Members went to the Regal Barkley 16 IMAX & RPX Cinema located in Bellingham, Washington as part of the Regal Summer Movie Express. Thanks to a generous grant through Regal Cinemas and Boys & Girls Clubs of America, La Conner Club Members get to see pre-determined G/PG movies for free all throughout the summer. This week’s movies were The Three Stooges and Ice Age: Continental Drift.
Week 2’s program theme is Game Show Island.
