Amitzim follows the yellow brick road!
On Wednesday Amitzim had a day filled with special activities related to the Wizard of Oz. Two of the counselors, Estie and Avraham, worked with the specialty staff to plan activities related to this theme. In the morning we learned about rainbows in Judaism to represent "somewhere over the rainbow." In shira/ rikud (singing and dancing) we sang the songs from the movie and simulated a tornado through dance. In order to learn about gaining courage, the chanichim (campers) had the chance to work together, do team building activities and conquer the ropes course.
In the afternoon they did "brain" games such as a Hebrew memory activity, learning how to balance and much more. The day was filled with gaining courage, finding a brain and a heart and of course continuing our masa (journey) down the yellow brick road!
