Yom Tzrif (Bunk Day): Part Six
Monday was Yom Tzrif! It is a special day where the tzrifim (bunks) go around and do special activities with their counselors. It is loads of fun. The entire machane (camp) is engaged with traveling around to different peulot (activities) with their entire tzrif. This is different from a yom ragil (regular day), when the chanichim (campers) move from chug to chug (elective) with a variety of chanichim from one’s edah — but not necessarily one’s own bunk. Yom Tzrif is especially great at making even stronger connections between bunkmates, as well as between bunkmates and their madrichim (counselors), as they have tons of fun at some unusual and out of the ordinary peulot together. Yom Tzrif was incredible. Many of our Tzevet (staff) stepped up and out of their normal roles to give the chanichim (campers) an amazing experience. The activities were awesome. Yom Tzrif fosters strong, close interactions between madrichim and chanichim, having good old camp fun. These chanichim from adat ha- Magshimim (top) and adat ha-Shoafim (below) are enjoying a fun and delicious Baking Rugelach peula with Tzevet Limud (Education staff) member Gila Ben David Stone. She showed each tzrif a short video about how Jewish food adapted over the ages — for example, Libyan Jews arriving in Italy and how that affected Italian Jewish food.
