This week feels like it went by so quickly! It was so great meeting the families of the Gesher chanichim on Visiting Day.
On Tuesday, Gesher celebrated Yom Super Hero. The chanichim dressed up in their favorite super hero costumes to play dodgeball and other games to judge the best super hero. We ended the evening with a party (the vaad dubbed it a prom) and chanichim were partnered with campers they did not necessarily know well, in order for them to bond further as an edah.
Yom Sport broke out on Thursday morning! Our last Yom Sport as chanichim! It was great to see all the chanichim participating in sports wearing their colors proudly. The day ended with Gesher competing in scooter relay races on the stadium courts. Then the generals then wrapped one another in toilet paper and the teams competed in cheers and songs – with the Gesher teammates cheering in front of everyone! The Gesher chanichim were dressed in the most creative Yom Sport costumes I have ever seen ~ and all within the color of the team. Overall it was a great two days.
Hopefully this Shabbat will be restful as we are leaving early Sunday morning for our trip to DC.
