Campers arrived at the overnight site, excited to unpack, settle in, and set up their sleeping bags, under a clear starry sky. The barbecued hot dogs were ready for them as they sat round the fire and enjoyed the stories and songs, together with their staff. Early this morning – everyone headed to the onsite water park to enjoy the incredible water slides and pools. A delicious picnic breakfast was then enjoyed by all.

Section C took advantage of our quiet campgrounds with their grand C-Shore, lakefront barbecue. The staff outdid themselves, setting up the props and food, all contributing the success of the event.

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.

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.
