As first session comes to a close, we continue to have fun and exciting things going on around camp! On Wednesday, our Yom Meyuchad was called Yom
Candy Land. We played a life-size version of the game, incorporating trivia
questions about Israel, Judaism and camp. In the afternoon we had several activities
that incorporated the Candy Land theme, including learning about brachot
and dental hygiene. In the evening we completed our havdalah project by
decorating boxes and a prayer card, which your children are very excited to
bring home and share with you! Based on reports from the campers, they really
enjoyed the entire day.
Thursday afternoon the whole camp participated in a carnival
and banquet. Throughout the carnival there was special food, inflatable games
and a dunk tank which I was able to sit in! After the carnival we had a light
dinner, singing and dancing. We ended the night by watching a slide show of
pictures taken throughout the session.
This week the campers were also given the opportunity to
play sports with some professionals who came to camp for the week to work with
the campers on Tzad Bet. Campers were able to play basketball, Frisbee,
flag football and soccer. The campers really enjoyed this opportunity! The
bible rappers, Matt Bar and Ori Salzberg joined us for Tefillot to share some
of their work with the edah. We are looking forward to the last Shabbat of the
session, as we spend time together singing, praying, eating, playing and relaxing.
We can’t wait you on Sunday. Have a safe trip!
