Following a heartfelt staff banquet last night, the day has arrived! The emotions and excitement are in the air! The last day of camp! Finalizing sports leagues, kluger (learning) championships, getting in line for the prize store, canteen refunds, and starting to pack- are some of the things we are busy with today.
Once the packing is done, campers will head to the shul for the first part of the banquet, followed by a festive, catered, Schnitzel meal prepared by our amazing chef-Menachem Hayes and his staff.

The traditional ceremony of color war winner announcements – did not disappoint our campers. The excitement was enjoyed by both teams as generals and judges were dancing in the lake!
The last Shabbos of camp was extremely special, with lots of singing, farbrenging mishnayos bal peh, seder nigunim and of course shmaryonke.
Motze Shabbos each department enjoyed a special event, prepared for them by their very devoted staff. The late night was followed by a delayed revile this morning.

Color war is here! Both the red and blue teams are enjoying the intense competition expressed through songs, spirit, mishnayos bal peh, plays and of course hysterical scavengers.

Early this morning, Section C headed out on their grand two-day trip in lovely Montreal city – with many stops along the way- details to follow.
