Buses pulled in throughout the evening, returning very happy campers from their special grade trips.

Section A (grades 3 & 4) had a great time in the old port of Montreal on the rodeo-fast-moving-speed-boat. They  then enjoyed activities at the beautiful port. For dinner they headed to “Chai-Center” for a special barbecue. Thanks to the “Chai-Center” shluchim for welcoming us so warmly.

Grade 5 campers, better known as “section B” had a fun-filled day in Ottawa. They started off at the Canadian-Mint, for a full tour; followed by some great  jumping at the Ottawa-Trampoline-park and ended their day at the famous “light show”. Campers returned late last night after an  incredible day!

Section B+, Grade 6 campers enjoyed ice skating in Montreal. They then headed to the amazing Pizza-Pita restaurant for a delicious dinner.

It was a perfect hot summer day for white water rafting. Section C braved the rapids and enjoyed every moment of the great outdoors. Delicious pizza was delivered to the site and was enjoyed by the hungry campers as they got off their rafts.

This morning all sections were treated to a later revile following the amazing exhausting day. Sports, swimming and water activities have been going full force. The lake front is buzzing with non stop activities as campers enjoy all our boats and activities on this sunny, hot summer day!

Second session is sure off to a great start BH.

As we brought in the last Shabbos of the first session, a feeling of mixed emotion was felt, preparing to say good bye to some of our campers. The dining room had a special Chayos, as camp songs were sung, divrei torah were shared and Hachlotas were made.

11 buses and 2 mini buses pulled into camp late last night returning lots of happy, tired campers and staff after an amazing trip to six-flags La Ronde amusement park. In the words of some of our campers, “it was our best trip ever!” The rides, shows, perfect weather, and just being together with bunk mates in the amazing park, made for a super-grand-trip!

The entire camp met in the parking lot for Mincha an delicious dinner of warm pizza and fries; and then returned to the park to enjoy the lit up rides at night!  As the buses were boarded each camper was given a fresh chocolate doughnut before heading back to camp.

Campers were treated to a late revile this morning to make up for some lost sleep. We are sure to be well rested as we prepare for the last Shabbos of the first session here in Camp Gan Yisroel.

Good Shabbos!
