This past week has really flown by but has been filled with incredible programs and experiences in Cochavim! The Sports Clinic started on Sunday, and all of the campers were able to play and improve their skills in a sport of their choice, including frisbee, football, hip hop, jump rope, soccer, softball, tennis, volleyball, and basketball.
Cochavimers got to show off their creativity during peulot erev (evening activities) this week, in dressing up for “Night of 1000 Stars,” making up humorous skits for “Whose Line is it Anyway?” and creating human machines in the Machine Game. We sang our hearts out at the annual camp-wide 4th of July concert and learned new songs in shira (singing), which we sang with the whole Camp in the chadar ochel (dining hall) on Shabbat.
Our Shabbat theme last week was “Shabbat Disney,” and we discussed themes like friendship and appearances, using Disney movies like “Toy Story” and “Beauty and the Beast” as media in our discussion.
On Yom Daled (Wednesday), our day’s theme was “Yom Celebrity.” Every Cochavimer won an award at the Cochavim Grammy Awards, dressed up his/her counselor as a famous person, attended a “movie premiere” right here in Camp! We’re all looking forward to seeing what the next week brings!
