Friday Aug 22

DATE: June 22, 2018

Today we experinced a little mist at camp πŸ™‚

Just enough to be refreshing but not enough to ruin our plans for everyone’s hikes. Phew!!

After making sandwiches and choosing snacks (done to a very beloved soundtrack of songs), the chanichim left breakfast for a shortened shiur period. Fridays will be a little different shiur with more of a focus on the thinkers from this time period we are studying and an example of their writings/philosophy.

On Fridays, each Eidah has its own hike/trip; today it looked like this:

Kaytana – big treat!! They all went to see Incredibles 2!! Great cloudy/misty day activity for these young campers!

Aleph – They walked “to town” (Sugar Grove town square) where they ate a picnic lunch in the park and were given some spending money for the supermarket (more like a “makolet”).

Vav – Berry picking which we will all benefit from at Seudah Shlishit! Yay! We are teaching them to be good sharers…

Bet – A hike which we call “the loop around the Chutz site”

Gimmel – a hike near camp which ends at our agam (lake). They approach it from the woods behind camp and are surprised to end up right here in camp!

Daled – These chanichim hiked a trail near…a Perry’s ice cream shack, so they enjoyed a treat/reward right away when they were done πŸ™‚

Machal – They were divided into groups, each group with a few counselors, and dropped off at a random place and had to find their way to the end using maps. They love this activity- it is really bonding and fun! We, of course, knew where they were the whole time πŸ˜‰ They couldn’t really get lost, but ssshhhh….just let them think it was a “real adventure” πŸ˜‰

Shabbat Shalom from our little utopian corner of the world!!
