And we’re off to a great second month in Shorashim 2011! We started off the week with a lovely visiting day, our chanichim spending a few quality hours with their visitors before returning to their homes either in or out of Camp. The now smaller tzrifim bonded over the next few hours before dressing up for Night of 1000 Stars, each chanich/chanicha dressing up as a different character and then putting on skits in groups for the rest of the edah.
Monday was quite a busy day because it was mixed in with a few regular peulot. All of the banim went bowling and the banot went to see The Zookeeper. At the end of the day we broke out Yom Disney with Disney Human Guess Who?, Each chainch/chanicha dressed up as a different Disney character before playing a real life version of Guess Who?.
Before going to sleep we played Human Bingo and taught the edah song, creating a sense of edah unity. Each tzrif also did a fun activity to finish off the day. Wednes
day was chock-full of fun peulot, including sports, swim, mitbachon, omanut, video, radio, and many more. Thursday morning dawned with Yom Sport Breakout, the beginning of the camp-wide day and a half color war. Our chanichim spent Thursday and Friday playing sports, participating in relay races, and singing songs, showing much team ruach and sportsmanship throughout the day. Going into Shabbat Yisrael, we look forward to a “journey” through the country, getting a taste of some of Israel’s most famous cities, and an exciting but restful Shabbat.
Until next week, Shabbat Shalom!
