Camp Ramah Goes to a Rock Cats Game!
Take me out to the
ballgame! On Sunday, all of camp took in a glorious game of baseball as
we watched the New Britain Rock Cats demolish the Akron Aeros 11-3. It
looked a little cloudy as we began loading our campers onto our 14
buses, but by the time we arrived at the park in New Britain, CT, the
sun was shining beautifully. After a light lunch outside the park, we
entered the stadium and found our seats. Two Ramah campers (one from
Ilanot and one from Nivonim) threw out the first pitch, and then our
hanhallah (senior staff) sung the national anthem. The cheers from the
assembled Ramahniks were deafening!
During the game, Ramah
campers were able to participate in a variety of games on the field
between innings, including a wheelbarrow race and a dance-off. While
enjoying the game, we were also able to enjoy kosher hamburgers and
hotdogs that the Rock Cats provided for us in a special kosher section.
Our campers returned to camp tired and happy. It was a great day!
