We are, b”h, in a groove here in Machane!
Today was beautiful weather and the schedule ran smoothly with lots of activities…Ceramics opened up!! And tomorrow, rumor has it, we are start peulot in “the Village”! We’ll talk more about that special corner of camp when it opens… Best lunch: potato bar with baked potatoes and toooons of toppings 🙂
The shiur in the morning was about secular zionism and religious zionism, and later in the day as the kids were enjoying their shekem (snack from canteen) our Roshei Moshava acted out a debate between A.D. Gordon and Ahad haAm, which ended in an agreement to head out and “settle the Land” i.e. time for the lina – a sleep out in the different camp sites in the many acres of woods that belong to Camp Stone. Everyone went running to pack and leave on time to start cooking their dinner out at their lina site 🙂 They all knew it was coming – ha! They just had a feeling… Campers who have been here before know we do a lina the first week, and chanichim were trying to get their madrichim to admit it all day 😉
Kaytana had day #6 already (almost half-way through!! Crazy) with a fun peula of “limonana” – making the minty lemonade by themselves! And tonight, they enjoyed a BBQ dinner outdoors also…but they get to sleep in their beds 😉
Machal had a hike and then as a reward…bowling!! Some indoor fun for them for a change!
