Shabbat Shalom Mishpachat Bogrim!
It was great meeting you on Yom Orchim (Visiting Day)! Despite the rain it was a fun and relaxing day and I hope that you enjoyed seeing your children in action.
This past Shabbat we learned about the importance of a home and community especially in Machaneh Ramah. It served as a great segue into our Sababa themed week about bonding and being a part of the Bogrim community. Our Yom Daled this week was Yom “Soundtrack of Our Lives”. During each activity, we played a popular song from each year of the chanichim’s lives. We had scooter races, dug for chocolate kisses in flour, and performed highly amusing skits about Bar Mitzvahs, weddings, and school.
Thursday was Yom Sport (color war) break out! The chanichim had no idea it was coming. They were split up into four teams and competed in sports, tug-of-war, swimming, and a triathlon. This Shabbat we will be talking about tikvah (hope) and prayer.
And finally…..Sababa is here! Our tzevet (staff) and chanichim (campers) met last night in Sababa groups for the first time to go over details and get pumped up for what will be an amazing trip. We are leaving Sunday morning and will send you regular updates of our adventures so keep a look out for that! We can’t wait to start this innovative program and we know it will be a huge success.
