Camp is off with a bang! Campers are enjoying sports, water activities and amazing learning classes. Section C had their first outing – to Trampolining followed by pizza dinner in Montreal’s Cavendish mall. The entire camp enjoyed the first in house entertainment last night.

The staff was given a special training last night. CGI thanks Rabbi Ringo for coming from Montreal and sharing his professional advice with all of us. Rabbi Ringo stayed late into the night, answering any questions that came up.

We apologise for the delay in posting of pictures on our site. Our tech support has been working on it for days and will not give up till they succeed. We are really sorry for this delay. The pictures are ready to go…

Have a great shabbos.

Smiles were seen on the excited faces – as campers arrived at camp. They enjoyed exploring our wonderful grounds – new to many – since we have not been here since 2019! Everyone is thrilled to be back home bh! Campers enjoyed a quick breakfast followed by the division of bunks – a bit of settling in – and a delicious grill cheese lunch. Sports took off to a great start, as we are eagerly waiting for the serious league drafts taking place later this week. An early lights out is planned for all our tired campers – after travelling all night. Bunk and class lists will be sent by email tomorrow. Please use your son’s bunk number to send emails to him – through our website.

And the action continues. After a smashing color war the grand sing was a huge success.

All campers and staff was proudly outfitted in the costume of his team. Team Are’nu were farmers, and team Pla’os were Arabs. The huge gym was bursting with energy, spirit, songs and niggunim.

Early this morning the buses were loaded for the grand trip to six flags. Section C will iyh meet the rest of camp, as they are in the middle of their two-day trip. Lunch was served upon arrival at the park and campers are anxious to enjoy the thrilling rides. The local Pizza shop will be delivering pizza and fries for another specail supper after Mincha iyh.

 

The last in house-E ventriloquist entertainer was enjoyed by all, as we all tried to figure out “just how did he say that?”

Color war plays, “mishnayos-bal-peh”, scavengers, great songs, are what your son has been busy with! The action-packed week has taken campers from one excitement to the next. As we prepare for an incredible grand scene tonight, section C has packed out of camp early this morning for their grand-two-day trip.

As we finalise our return buses, please be sure to email our office if your return transportation plans have changed since the last email exchange.

 

Section C had an amazing bunk war. Last night’s memorable grand sing was lively, exciting, and full of toichen!

Our hardworking staff were treated to a well-deserved break – with a lavish brunch at the local “Sauce and Cheese” restaurant! They were welcomed warmly with an abundance of food and great fun!

Color war is here! The names of the teams are “Ploas” and “Arenu” with Menachem Wagner and Elchonon Perlstein as generals! Camp is buzzing with excitement as campers are enjoying the new songs, plays, and comedy throughout the day!

Shabbos Mevorchim Elul was celebrated as would be appropriate for the special month. Tehillim was highly encouraged. All campers were treated to a fresh doughnut, and section C was once again indulged with a a special breakfast buffet following a packed house of tehillim.

After Shabbos, section C bunk war broke out with the help of Rabbi Nechemia Deitsch, the visiting Shliach.  Section C is heavily involved in their own war. Campers are preparing songs, plays, skits and more. The hidden talents are quickly being recognized by every camper involved.

As many campers made Hachlotas for Chof Av, quite a few included “saying Chitas”. A sponsor came through with plenty of Chayeinus to help implement this Hachlato.

After a lively Shabbos, the race was fierce for Shabbos competition. The winters are bunks Yud Alef, Daled and Chof. Yud Alef and Daled went bowling today, and chof will be rewarded shortly iyh.

Overnight 2021! A memorable event. The setting: a nearby farm with open fields and lots of friendly animals, under a clear – star filled sky!

After setting up the tents and sleeping bags, enjoying barbecued hotdogs in fresh buns, campers sat around the enormous fire, inspired by the stories and songs they shared. The warmth continued late into the night- as campers drifted to sleep in their designated sleeping locations.

Everyone was bused back to camp early this morning, for a quick cereal & milk breakfast and off for some well-deserved sleep. Revile was postponed – followed by davening breakfast and a day full of sports, activity and lots of fun.

Looking forward to a very special Shabbos Mevorchim Ellul here in the Rebbe’s camp.

Have a great Shabbos.

The outdoor water park was the destination for all campers yesterday! Following a delicious Pizza lunch all campers of all departments of camp, and staff, boarded the many buses to this amazing park. Upon arrival, Mincha was davened and supper was served before entering the park. Campers and staff enjoyed the amazing slides, pools and wave pools the park had to offer. Everyone was greeted at the buses with a fresh chocolate Danish before heading back to camp for a well-deserved good night’s sleep.

Our huge backfields were transformed into several scenes in Cracow. All the hidden talents of our amazing staff came to life, with the building, painting back drops, creating costumes, and acting out the suspenseful-annual-staff-outdoor-play. The silent audience enjoyed the incredible acting as well as professional sound and lighting. The suspenseful play depicted the importance of Emunah and Bitochon combined with the constant Hashgocha Protis in every scene.

At a late hour, all campers returned to their bunk with lots to discuss, internalize and analyze. Everyone was treated to a late reveille this morning, to be well rested for the big day ahead iyh.

All divisions of camp were treated to a special activity. Every camper and staff member decorated and painted his own CGI shirt. The activity was creative, enjoyable, and gave each camper amazing results. Campers were seen proudly wearing their new piece of art.

Grades 4 and 5 were treated to their special barbecue events – beautifully prepared for them by their counselors and head staff. A great time was enjoyed by all.

Mazel tov to Yaakov Wenger from Montreal upon his Hanochas tefillin, celebrated here in camp with his father and friends. Lots of Nachas to the entire Wenger family.
