What a great week it has been in Shorashim! It started off with an exciting Chashi breakout after a camp-wide havdalah on Saturday night. The next three days were full of Israel-themed activities, with chanichim getting a taste of the culture, language, and fun facts of Israel. On Sunday night, chanichim attended an Israeli shuk and on Monday night each tzrif completed three tasks, decoding messages in Hebrew, recreating a famous moment in Israeli history and creating an environmental map of Israel. As a prize, each chanich and chanicha received a pair of fabulous Chashi sunglasses.
Tuesday, in addition to the excitement of Chashi, was filled with many fun activites. Our chanichim went on an inflatable waterslide and rollerbladed as an edah, during which they had a blast! The day ended with the Chashi closing tekes, complete with a picture slideshow, music and dance performances.
On Wednesday our edah went out of Camp to Splash Down Beach, a waterpark in Fishkill, New York. After splashing around for a few hours, we ate delicious ice cream at Carvel. At the end of our wonderful trip, we returned to camp for bishul and movie night. The next day we returned to our regularly scheduled activities, chanichim enjoying sport, swim, omaniyot, bechirot, other fun peulot and Bogrim’s performance of Grease for peulat erev. To end off the week with a bang, each girl’s bunk went mini-golfing this morning before getting ready for a restful Shabbat.
Until next week, Shabbat Shalom!
