Gesher Update 2014 – Week 5

Posted by   on under Uncategorized



Gesher 2014 5It is hard to believe Visiting Day was only last week! It was so great meeting all of you.  The chanichim enjoyed  presenting  their Gesher Fund Project: Mitzpe Layla song and video. They did such a fabulous job, and I could not be more proud of them! After the parents left camp however, the busy day continued! Camp Ramah Nyack came up and the campers watched the annual Nayack-Berkshires basketball game. Even though our counselors lost, the campers cheered on their counselors and enjoyed the event!  Sunday night was our “Yom Daled” breakout where we introduced this week’s theme, Yom “Turn Back the Clocks”. The kids planned a 1920’s Casino Night to kick off the day. Our week also included a DJ dance party, Deal or No Deal (using real Camp-themed prizes), Iron Chef (Sushi addition), and of course, meeting their second month CIT Campers.Yesterday was Yom Sport Breakout. All chanichim were thrilled to lead a camp wide event that  they have participated in every summer! This Shabbat is Shabbat Limud, a tradition started last year in Camp. Each camper will have the opportunity to learn with different camp educators and scholars.

Shabbat Shalom!
