Shabbos Nachamu was celebrated to its fullest! The Chayos, and spirit throughout shabbos was amazing, along with the Mishnayon bal Peh, Seder Niggunim and of course Shmaryunki!

 

Sunday brought a sunny brisk day – filled with great sports and activity.

 

Excitement is in the air, as all campers and staff await the grand-staff-outdoor-play, tonight. The stage is being set with lots of building and drawing in anticipation for what will be a great performance.

 

We are pleased to share the names of our Talmidim that were chosen as Talmid Hashavua for last week.

It was a meaningful and smooth Tisha b’av in camp! Throughout the fast we had campers’ skits, Eicha and of course meals for the campers.

The Reptizoo staff and animals once again visited camp, to help entertain our campers over the fast; introducing them to the most interesting reptiles they’ve ever seen. The two-shift presentation was enjoyed by all campers.

After the fast, everybody enjoyed an amazing dinner of Banana chocolate chip cake, onion soup, lazagna, corn on the cob and of course salad; prepared for us by our very hard-working kitchen staff and our wonderful Chef Menachem Hayes!  Following supper, a beautiful moon shone for a meaningful Kiddush Lavana.

Plans are underway for an amazing Shabbos Nachamu; our first Shabbos of the second session- welcoming our new campers to the most incredible experience ever.

 

Have a Good Shabbos!

Now that our new campers have settled in, the second month has taken off with a bang, with nonstop activity.  Last night all departments of the camp gathered on top of the hill for an amazing bike show! The stunts were incredible, and the spirit was soring!

Following a delicious dinner of fish fillet, veggies and buns, with fries and potato borekas, the sports drafts took place in different locations. Sports have taken off with great intensity and is being enjoyed by all the leagues!

We are pleased to share the names of the boys that were chosen as the Talmid Hashavua for the last week of the first session, as well as Talmid Hachodesh! Lots of Nachas from these hardworking boys!

First session came to an end with a lively award ceremony, followed by a mini banquet with lots of song and cheer!

It was hard to say goodbye to the departing campers as they boarded the buses to the airport, Montreal and NY. Simultaneously, the buses rolled in from Toronto, Montreal, NY and the airport as campers headed to the shul to meet their new bunkmates and counselors. The new campers quickly settled into their new bunkhouses and then enjoyed a delicious lunch followed by sports.

The bunk and class lists will IYH be sent to all parents by email tomorrow afternoon. Please hold off on the sending emails till you get your son’s new bunk number. It is important that you use the bunk number when sending him his emails.

Looking forward to another amazing month with our campers and staff! Off to a great start BH!

Shabbos Chazon was very special in the Rebbe’s camp- with an abundance of learning, nigunim and tons of spirit; as we prepare to bid farewell to our departing campers.

Each section enjoyed a celebration for themselves, with pizza, ice cream, and great activity!

Championships are underway for both sports and Kluger (learning classes) to finalize the champions in each section! Our departing campers were given time to pack today as we prepare for a mini banquet tonight!

 

Bog war has come to an end! All three teams did great work, and campers are eagerly awaiting the announcement of the winner later today. They thoroughly enjoyed the plays, scavengers, and amazing spirit – while being involved in the war!

 

Early this morning the section C staff were hard at work preparing a lavish breakfast for the section C bochurim. With backdrops and scenery set up as the bagel store, Chocolate’, Empire kosher and more; as well as a delicious buffet of pastries, yogurts, bagels, omelets and hashbrowns, milk shakes, and tons more; the campers were astonished as they entered the dining room. A great time was enjoyed by all!

Plans are underway for another amazing Shabbos here in the Rebbe’s camp… the last Shabbos of the first session… as we prepare to sadly bid farewell to our departing campers.

Have a great Shabbos!

Bog war is here! Campers and staff are deeply involved in their teams’ themes, through song, plays, minshnayos bal peh and tons of spirit.

The three teams are:

למען ילמדו

למען ישמעו

ושמרו לעשות

Wishing lots of Hatzlacha to all three teams!

As the buses pulled up to six flag La Ronde, we were notified that the park is closed due to a power outage!  No warning and no apology- just an obvious Hashgacha Protis!

Our emergency response team was put into action, and trips were arranged for all departments of the camp within minutes.

Sections A and B (grades 4 and 5) went bowling and laser tag followed by a pizza dinner.

Section B+ (grade 6) went paintball shooting followed by pizza dinner.

Section C (grade 7) went Jet boating, followed by a trip to Walmart followed by a pizza dinner.

BH all sections returned to camp after a great trip day!

Mazel Tov to Mendel Shur From Crown Heights upon his Bar Mitzvah celebrated here in camp with his family and friends.

After a great, sunny, breezy day of lake and sports activities, the hardworking staff were treated to their very own staff trip! The staff returned rejuvenated after a grand axe throwing experience followed by a lavish barbecue.

In the meantime, the entire section C gathered in the basketball court to watch and cheer on their intense all-star game! The boys had voted for candidates previously and were excited to watch the action unfold.

This morning, campers were woken bright and early. After Shacharis, breakfast and line up, the campers excitedly loaded the bus for the grand trip of the session!  Details to follow.
