First day of the session turned out really great bh! Once buses from NY, Montreal and the airport arrived, campers were given their bunks and enjoyed a delicious grill cheese lunch! No time was wasted once the campers settled into their new bunks, and the lake front was bustling with activity!

Last night, lights out was on time for all sections, giving our new campers a chance to catch up on the missed night’s sleep from their long “red eye” trip up here.

This morning – after Davening and breakfast, our campers are getting ready for their grade trips. Grade 5 is off to a full day trip to Ottawa. Section A, grade 4 is going jet boating, and Section C are off to some great white water rafting. We will report on their amazing day once they return iyh.

The sections are: Section A-grade 4, Section B- Grade 5, Section B+-grade 6, and Section C-Grade 7.   Thanks for limiting your emails to four emails a week.

It was hard to say good bye to our departing campers! Buses to the airport left bright and early yesterday morning, while Montreal and NY buses left in the evening.

Last night, campers in sections B+ and C were treated a special Shnitzel Event! A great start to another amazing week here in camp!

The buses rolled into camp, last night, after an amazing day at six-flags-La-Ronde-Amusement Park! Campers and staff enjoyed every minute in the park, on the many rides and roller coaster, they knew so well – and several new attractions that were added for this year!  Everyone met for Mincha and a delicious pizza & fries dinner, outside the park. They returned to enjoy the rides till closing time.  They were each given a freshly baked “black and white cookie” as they lined up to board the buses back to camp. BH for an incredible grand trip day!

Camp was treated to a late revile this morning, to help everyone catch up on some much needed sleep.

In the meantime the masmidim enjoyed our quiet grounds, including a lakeside barbecue and water front activities.

Looking forward to an amazing Shabbos, our last Shabbos of first session; as we sadly bid farewell to our departing campers.

After a day of races, team songs, mishnayos bal peh and so much more; Bog War ended last night with the conclusion of the third play. Campers thoroughly enjoyed watching all their plays and are anxiously waiting to hear who the winner is.

Early this morning, following davening and breakfast, campers of all departments of camp, loaded the buses for the grand trip of the season. BH the weather continues to cooperate with us, and we are looking forward to an amazing trip-day today! This special trip is the only one, with all departments of camp together!

BOG WAR is here. Following the break out by lunch, campers hurried to the shul for the division of the teams. With an enthusiastic staff, the spirit was incredible, as the generals and others were ushered into the shul! Campers were divided into the three teams of “Yisroel” “Oiraysa” and “Kudsha Brich Hu”. The three long lines chanting the pesukim at line up, three long tables in the dining room, and three sections in shul, seem to be a really close race. One play was performed last night with the other two to be presented this evening. Certainly an exciting war going on here in camp.

In the meantime the masmidim took a brief break to enjoy a go karting trip and some local shopping.

Section C has been taking turns disappearing from camp in the early morning hours for an enjoyable runaway.
