Campers have been warned  very clearly about the risks and dangers involved with looking at the eclipse. IYH we will spend most of the day indoors – and when changing locations quickly, we are prepared to avoid the sun iyh. Looking forward to a safe packing day here in camp iyh.

Following packing will be our grand banquet including the award ceremony, camps songs, and lots more. The buses start departing this evening to Buffalo, Toronto, Montreal and NY iyh. The airport buses will iyh be leaving tomorrow, Tuesday throughout the day.

Our last Shabbos was quite memorable! All three Shabbos meals were quite lively, singing niggunim and lot of farewell camp songs.

Last night the hardworking staff had their very own festive banquet. With a delicious menu the staff enjoyed a great program of grammon, songs, lots of good speakers and a warm good bye to one another.

We are CGI are well aware of the eclipse scheduled for tomorrow. Thanks to all the parents that sent us emails of warning.  We will do our best to warn and prepare our campers and staff for this rare occurrence. We are hopeful that everyone in CGI will cooperate and be safe through it all iyh.

Tomorrow, Monday is packing day and banquet day. Of course, there will be no calling day, as campers are quite busy getting ready to depart in the evening following the banquet.

Campers returned last night from their respective trips after an amazing grand trip bh.

Section C had an incredible two day trip to Montreal with many stops along the way;  including restaurants, a hotel overnight stay, bowling, laser tag, jet boating, cruise, indoor race-go-karting, and ice skating. A trip never to be forgotten!

 Sections A, B and B+ had a great time at six-glad-La-Ronde; enjoying the great rides and shows the park has to offer followed by pizza, fries and doughnuts in the park.

This morning we are having a later start as all campers are catching up on some well-deserved sleep, in preparation for our last Shabbos of the season. Looking forward to a very special Shabbos iyh.
