Rosh Machon Reports in on Day One of the Machon Etgar!
Rosh Machon Rami Schwartzer sent in this report from the first day of the Machon Etgar (outdoor adventure):
This morning Machon departed on etgar for three days and two nights of camping and outdoor challenges. Five groups of about 8-10 people each left for various destinations in New England. Our canoeing groups rowed 6 miles down the CT river, ending with a victorious dive into the water for a refreshing and much needed swim. Our rock-climbing group scaled 3 large rocks today and is preparing for a day of rapelling tomorrow.
The biking team took a ride outward from the Quabbin reservoir near camp and will continue their journey in the morning. And our backpacking group hiked several miles to the base of Mt. Monadnock in New Hampshire, with all of their equipment on their backs, preparing to climb its peak tomorrow. All are well and in high spirits!
All of our groups are looking forward to another great day filled with challenges, excitement, and unforgettable experiences. Stay tuned.
