Kayitz 2013… Begins!
Over the past week, it has been a delight getting to watch Camp Ramah in New England slowly come to life! Our summer office has been open here in Palmer since Monday June 10th. Our Israeli agam and sirot (waterfront & boating) staff-members arrived on Tuesday June 12. They were hoined by our tech staff and our havalim (ropes/adventure course) staff soon after. The rest of our mishlachat, our delegation of Israeli staff, arrived on Tuesday June 18th — 40 excited, energetic Israelis! Then on Wednesday, June 19th, our Shavuah Hachanah (Staff Week) officially began! Almost 150 American staff members arrived, smiling and eager to be back at Camp Ramah! The last two and a half days have been invigorating and exciting, jam-packed with training workshops. Our tzevet (staff) is chomping at the bit to meet all of our 2013 hanichim (campers)!!!
As has become our tradition, we opened our Shavuah Hachanah with a silly video.
