The last Shabbos of the summer was spectacular! Lots of singing, farbrenging, mishnayos bal peh, seder Niggunim and more. Motzei Shabbos, every section in camp was treated to a special late night. Section A, had a pizza late night while the others enjoyed bon fires around camp.

Another beautiful, sunny day, gives our campers a chance to enjoy our magnificent lake front for the last time this season.

At this point, we will not be distributing emails to campers or staff, or taking online tips or canteen deposits. The season is sadly coming to an end!

After a day full of rides, roller coasters and lots of fun with their staff and friends; campers headed to the La Ronde parking lot, for a delicious pizza dinner – including fries, drinks and chocolate doughnuts. The drive back to camp was enjoyed by all, as they headed directly to a well-deserved night’s sleep. Campers were treated to a much needed, late revile, to be sure they are all rested for our last Shabbos of the summer.

Section C were not far behind in returning to camp after their two day – incredible grand trip. Campers were amazed at the details and excitement included in this – once in a lifetime trip!

As the buses were pulling in after overnights, campers unpacked showered and rested after an incredible overnight and trip.

While they were settling in, section C was occupied in building, painting, costume making, song and speech writing, in preparation for their very own grand sing. Campers of all three teams of “Adoneinu”, “Moreinu” and “Rabbeinu” gave it their all! The grand sing, was a site to see; lebedik, and intense, with a warm feeling of Achdus!

Section C did not waste any time, and were off – bright and early this morning, on another amazing trip.

A beautiful sunny day here in camp, welcomes a full day of sports and water activities for the rest of camp.

We would like to suggest, that at this point of the season, you stop sending letters or packages to camp from the states, as they may arrive after camp is over. We have had quite a few of these situations in the past years, and wanted to give parents advance warning. As you are well aware, this Sunday is visiting day; a great opportunity to bring or send your son any last minute things you may want him to have.

While Section C was heavily involved in an intense Bunk War; including great songs, plays and all the rest; the rest of camp emptied out!

It started off with the section B leaving camp before lunch for their trip to paint ball shooting. After lunch, the rest of camp met them at the overnight site, and began unpacking, and setting up their tents and sleeping bags, for what turned out to be an Amazing overnight – under a clear starry sky! Following a delicious hot dog dinner, campers and staff sat round the fire in song! The atmosphere was electric!

Early this morning, following davening and breakfast, section A headed to their Rope course trip, while section B+ went Paint ball shooting.

Campers will be given, unpacking, shower, and rest time upon their return to camp iyh.

The shul was roaring with excitement – as all departments of camp; Sections A, B, B+, C and Masmidim enjoyed the lively concert performed by Baruch S. Blesofsky along with Musician Fitche benshimon. The lights, the action, the dancing and the singing, were a site to see! CGI Thanks the two talented performers for taking the long trip to camp for this incredible event.

Section C, was shocked with the break out of Bunk War following the concert. Campers quickly ran to their Zal for the division of teams and general entrances. For the next 2 days, Section C will be totally immersed in this intense war between the three teams. Best of luck to all the teams.
