Shabbat Shalom from Wingdale – Week 5

Posted by   on under Uncategorized



DSC00863It’s been a fabulous week in Machaneh Ramah. Ta’am, our youngest campers, entering third grade, arrived on Monday for a terrific one week taste of Camp. Surrounded by  marvelous madrichim, they have acclimated well and taken advantage of everything Camp has to offer.

We welcomed our second session campers on Tuesday.  Immediately unpacking, these campers slipped right into the swing of the camp routine.  I am more than proud of the diverse options of our robust program. Walking around Camp, I greet hikers, bikers, cooks, dancers, baseball players, bakers, Ultimate enthusiasts, soccer players, high ropes and rockwall climbers, artists, musicians, swimmers and performers everyday..

Last night,as I watched the Machon production of The Wiz, I was once again awed by our incredibly gifted and talented campers.  Our hofa’ah staff, too, need to be commended for their tremendous expertise.

Today’s Boker Tzrif gave way for clever planning by our madrichim.  Promoting a sense of unity, they planned bunk activities, lasting the entire morning. A break in the regular routine organically initiated a sense of bunk bonding.

Some CRB Board of Trustees members will be joining us for Shabbat and many more will be attending our annual summer Board meeting on Sunday.  This very special group supports and helps to govern Camp. It is always thrilling to host our Board and enable them to visit and observe Camp in action.

Bruchim Habaim and Shabbat Shalom
