The It’s a Good Life Chug returns to Shoafim!
I’m pleased to report that one of our longstanding camp traditions made a triumphant return this week: The It’s a Good Life Chug!
This special chug has been offered exclusively to adat ha-Shoafim for many decades now, going back to the mid-nineties when it was begun by Mike Pletman.
To join the It’s a Good Life Chug, kids must submit a twenty-two-and-a-half word essay on a creative canvas of their choice (paper is not allowed), explaining why they want to join the chug. Once they’re in, we do all sorts of silly things at random times (not during the regular chug p’rakim). This chug is one of the ways that we try to make Shoafim — the oldest edah on Tzad Aleph — a special and unique experience for the kids!!
Shira (Rosh Shoafim) and I had a lot of fun reviewing all of the funny and creative application essays yesterday!
Then, today we gathered all of the new Good Lifers and had a toast of blue drink. Why do Good Lifers love blue drink? Because it’s silly, of course.
I’m looking forward to lots more fun with our 2021 Good Lifers in adat ha-Shoafim!
