Shabbat Shalom from Wingdale – Week 1

Posted by   on under Uncategorized




Costume making, pottery, high ropes course, rock wall climbing, more tefilla options, composting, freshly baked delights, more fresh vegetables, a beautiful agam [lake] , a larger marp [infirmary )staff and  robust creative communications team!  WOW we are in great shape!

If you have not seen our AMAZING videos, I encourage you to click the thumbnails on the sidebar and enjoy our Happy Staff Welcome and Opening Day clips. I want to thank our viewers for their incredibly positive feedback about each video.  Our tracking devices and stats show over 5,000 hits on Facebook and YouTube in addition to more than 450 likes and thousands shared. Instagram, too, presented popularity!  I am impressed with the many methods and tools that we now use to bring you a step closer to CRB—your mishpacha.

On the home front, our home away from home, here in Wingdale, for 25 or 51 days, our campers started their summer with very full  and programmed first days. On day #2 of camp there were already two bunks enjoying early morning bishulim [cookouts], even though they were in camp for less than 24 hours. On Wednesday night, I had the privilege to deliver freshly baked chocolate chip cookies  to many a-side campers.  I was inspired to meet so many children of alumni for whom I was their counselor or rosh edah. As I visited a-side tefillot, I felt as if I never left camp.

Thank you for sharing your child/ren with us. We love having them here and we hope that you will receive our day #2 postcard tomorrow or on Monday.

Shabbat Shalom,

Rabbi Paul Resnick
