Shabbat Shalom from Wingdale – Week 1

Posted by   on under Uncategorized



ResnickCamp is a beautiful place. The amazing lush green of our soccer and Frisbee fields adjoined by high ropes and our farm are stunning.  The view of the agam early this morning with the midst gradually lifting  was breathtaking. Overlooking A-side from the tree house, one can easily spot the softball field, tennis courts, mitbachon and Beit Am Aleph.

Camp is a spiritual place. I had the privilege yesterday to pray with Tzeirim [entering 7th graders] as  the sun illuminated Camp. Today, I started my day in the tree house with Nitzanim [entering 5th graders]. What a perfect new location for Nitzanim – to hear chanichim pray with enthusiasm and gusto was truly inspiring.

rainbowCamp is an amazing place. During the first 46 hours of Camp, a community is already developing. Campers playing softball, throwing Frisbees, learning Hebrew, dancing in the dance studio and participating in dozens of activities across Camp demonstrates our well organized and intentionally designed program.

And finally Camp is a warm and welcoming haven. We have created a staff community made up of our own Camp veterans and individuals and from Argentina, Israel and England.  Our camper community is vastly diverse with new and returning campers from public schools and day schools.

What is remarkable about this beautiful, spiritual and magical place is that all of us, together, form the kehillah [community] of Kayitz 2015.

Have a wonderful Shabbat.
