After a day of races, team songs, mishnayos bal peh and so much more; Bog War ended last night with the conclusion of the third play. Campers thoroughly enjoyed watching all their plays and are anxiously waiting to hear who the winner is.

Early this morning, following davening and breakfast, campers of all departments of camp, loaded the buses for the grand trip of the season. BH the weather continues to cooperate with us, and we are looking forward to an amazing trip-day today! This special trip is the only one, with all departments of camp together!

Our waiters were treated to their very own outing – a go karting trip. A nice time for them to relax and enjoy.

BOG WAR is here. Following the break out by lunch, campers hurried to the shul for the division of the teams. With an enthusiastic staff, the spirit was incredible, as the generals and others were ushered into the shul! Campers were divided into the three teams of “Yisroel” “Oiraysa” and “Kudsha Brich Hu”. The three long lines chanting the pesukim at line up, three long tables in the dining room, and three sections in shul, seem to be a really close race. One play was performed last night with the other two to be presented this evening. Certainly an exciting war going on here in camp.

In the meantime the masmidim took a brief break to enjoy a go karting trip and some local shopping.

Section C has been taking turns disappearing from camp in the early morning hours for an enjoyable runaway.

The hypnotist had several staff members “under”, as they entertained the entire shul with roars of laughter and tons of applause! The volunteers sang, danced and interacted with the audience in an incredible way. Of course the evening ended with all our volunteers being properly woken up and return to their position in camp.

Thanks to all of those that made the long trip up to camp for visiting day. Under a sunny sky, with a pleasant breeze, the weather could not have been better. Campers really enjoyed showing their families our amazing camp grounds and especially our new playing fields. At 6:30 pm, campers hurried to learning classes, happy to continue with the normal camp schedule.

Last night, when all was still, our section C bochurim were treated to a lavish Shnitzel Wrap event, prepared for them by their devoted staff. A great time was enjoyed by all. In the meantime, several bunks had their own Chassidishe Farbrengens in their bunk houses – with their own counselors – in honor of Yud Beis Tamuz.

Early this morning, bunks Tes and Yud beis were up and around bright and early, for their very special “runaway”. Campers were treated to a picnic breakfast, followed by  biking on the beautifully paved bike trails, in the neighboring city of La Belle.

Today, Monday, after enjoying the first two activities here in camp; campers rushed to their bunks to pack for the one and only overnight of the session!! The excitement is evident! Looking forward to a great overnight followed by a trip bright and early tomorrow morning. Will be sure to keep you posted.
