Bogrim Week 6

It’s been a great start to our second week of second session!  We ended our first week with a gorgeous, rain-free Shabbat.  We had not one, but two guests to our Shabbat services this past week, with Jeremy Ruberg, a long time staff member coming to lead Shacharit (morning services) and teach us some new tunes, and Rabbi Marc Israel, Rosh Ropes, to give a Dvar Torah.

Last night’s peulat erev (evening activity) was an introduction to our Take Home project for the summer, writing Divrei Torah.  The education staff at camp planned a program around the popular Israeli rap song, Shirat HaSticker (The Sticker Song), using it as an entry point for how to take a text and use it to back up an opinion.  They then created some raps themselves to perform for the whole edah!

The Bogrim Buddies program for this session has been off to a great start.  Twice a week, Bogrim campers can choose to be paired with an Amitzim (special needs) camper to help during Amitzim sport.  Both Bogrim and Amitzim campers really look forward to these times together.

The campers are really looking forward to Six Flags tomorrow!  Look for that in the next update!
