The first few days of Camp have been exciting and very busy! We started off with a Rock-Paper-Scissors tournament with the entire edah, and finished off the first night with a “Human Bingo” peulat erev and a game of “chashmal,” (literally electricity). After a lot of unpacking, all of the tzrifim (bunks) look like home, with decorations, posters, and even a mini basketball hoop!
Wednesday was the first normal day in Camp, and the chanichim were able to truly experience a Ramah shigra (routine). We all decorated our special place (Beit Cochavim) with stars (cochavim) upon which the chanichim wrote something special about themselves.
And of course, Cochavim campers went swimming in the agam, played basketball, volleyball, and archery, and expressed their creativity in omanut and radio. At peulat erev, we learned the Cochavim edah song and got to know the madrichim (counselors). Now we can cheer for our edah with the rest of Camp! We also had a scavenger hunt around Camp, where they had clues leading to many of the known and not-so-known areas around Camp.
We still have a lot going on in Cochavim, and this week is sure to be even more jam-packed and exciting!
Shabbat Shalom from Cochavim!
