For those of us who were here before second session started, we really enjoyed the day and a half between sessions. Everything seemed so quiet compared to one day earlier!
We welcomed our new campers into the edah through out Tuesday morning, and integrated them straight into the carnival that we hosted for A-side. We took some time to test the booths out ourselves first, and had a little fun as well…
Wednesday, which is usually a special day, was a normal day this week- as normal as any day in Camp can get! With a new session beginning, all the kids had new activities, yahadut classes and sports! We also had our first Rikkud practice for the Rikkudiah, where everyone had fun! Thursday and Friday may be two days, but this week they were just one – YOM SPORT! Nothing like friendly competition to encourage physical excellence and the triumph of the spirit.
I don’t know about you, but we are all ready for a restful, yet fun filled, Shabbat! I’m really looking forward to our Shabbat activities which share an Israel theme. We invited mishlachat members to talk to us and run activities for us, and some Israelis, who weren’t born in Israel will share their aliyah stories with us!
