Shalom from Shoafim!
Shalom Shoafim Parents!
Welcome to second session!! I am so excited to have all of you with us. It was a pleasure to meet many of you yesterday, and I’m looking forward to getting to know all of your children throughout the next four weeks.
We had a busy first day, and while the sun may not have been shining, we had many shining faces and campers excited for a great summer.
Each bunk did an activity with their bunk in the afternoon, and as an Edah (division) we met to do some ice-breakers, meet each other and learn some names. We learned the edah song and are very excited to be able to sing it in the chadar ohel (dining hall) for the rest of Tzad Aleph (the younger side of camp) to hear. We were also able to introduce the entire staff to the Edah, along with our wonderful Yoetzet (parent liason), Susan Gold, to the Edah.
Today we were able to start our first full day of programming. The options are incredible, from different sport options to climbing on the ropes course, working on the camp newspaper, learning how to make a video, to making a Tallit in the arts and crafts center in camp.
There are lots of smiling faces in Shoafim and we are excited for a fantastic summer!
