Gesher week #7 2014

GesherI cannot believe we are finishing the last FULL week of camp already! It went by so quickly! This week, Gesher Sport ozrim went on a special go-carting trip and the Al Hagova ozrim hiked together for two full days.Both ozrim groups had a blast! Our b-side wide tzedekah event, a quiddich tornamen on Wednesday was amazing! Gesher chanichim planned the entire event that raised $1,000 for a philanthropy, Save a Child’s Heart, that they selected. The tournament was spectacular and both leaders, participants and spectators were extremely proud. Monday night was Tisha B’Av. We planned a walking “tour” through Jewish history. Connectivity was our theme as we linked connections from personal experiences to the history surrounding Tisha B’Av. Our packed week continued including Yom Epic, the Gesher prom and the Rikuduah. This Shabbat is our last Shabbat as campers and our programming will focus on reflections of past summers Mixed emotions are pervasive as chanichim reflect and imagine their future returning, one day, as tzevet.  Shabbat Shalom.
