Rick Recht and Yom Kef!
The past two days at camp have been a lot of fun!! On Tuesday night we heard
the music of Rick Recht, a Jewish pop/rock artist. Rick has been making a camp
tour this summer and we really enjoyed having him here at camp! Campers learned
some of Ricks songs over the past week, as we played them in the chadar ochel,
and inside the bunks. We also made signs to hold up at the concert.
Yesterday was a fantastic day at camp as well! We started Yom kef (
literally, fun day) by getting a little extra sleep in the morning! Later on in
the day, all of tzad aleph attended a magic show, by Joe the magician. We were
then able to do some different craft projects including hat making, Shabbat-o-grams
and side walk chalk. Later in the day we set up 3 different inflatable
bouncy-bounces: a slide, a slip and slide and an obstacle course, as well as
carnival games, a snow cone machine and cotton candy. My favorite part of the
day was seeing the campers faces when they realized there was a water slide
being inflated on tzad aleph. It was a fabulous day and we are looking forward
to relaxing on Shabbat.
I hope you are doing well, and keep checking back for
more Ilanot news!
