The nine days are over and the buses are back on the road bh! While sections A and B+ got to enjoy our sports fields, lake and pool, sections B and C were out all day.

After a lively Shabbos, we went into Tisha bav with the traditional “kamtza and bar kamtza” skit, followed by Eicha. During the day, after chatsos the campers were kept busy with sports; and entertained with two fascinating shows featuring reptiles from our friends at “Reptizoo”. Each bunk had a chance to watch both shows demonstrating, describing, and feeling the unique reptiles that were brought into camp by the professional staff from Reptizoo.

 

Last night, we broke our fast with a special dinner of lasagna, vegetable soup, and corn on the cob, salad and special warm chocolate buns baked in house by our amazing kitchen staff. Laundry was prepared by most bunks, as camp quickly gets back into the pre- nine-days- mode! Lots of trips to follow iyh. Have a wonderful week.

On Thursday evening, after a day of great sports and activities, campers of all divisions of camp filled the bleachers of the shul for another amazing in house entertainer. The mentalist, and mind reader had everyone on the edge of their seats as he entertained, amazed and surprised the audience. The show was amazing for all ages, staff included! Campers headed to their bunks following Marriv trying to figure out how he did it all.

When all was still and campers were asleep, our hardworking staff members were once again treated to a staff appreciation event! Prepared by our kitchen staff, and the head staff, the dining room was beautifully decorated and the menu of pizza, poutine and lots of salads, was professionally prepared. A great time was had by all, as the staff enjoyed farbrenging together!  

Our new campers have adjusted really quickly and sports took off to a great start!

We had our very own in-house Archery activity in camp yesterday. Every bunk from every department had a turn for this amazing lakefront activity. Garbed in face masks the teams enjoyed an incredible time with the bow and arrow archery game.

Last night Section C had their official sports draft. Each camper now as his team and is prepared for some great sports leagues to follow.

Mazel Tov to Shneur Zirkind form Fresno California, and Meir Smetana from NY for their bar mitzvahs celebrated here in camp with family and friends.

Mazel Tov to Mendel Rader from Montreal, upon his Hanochas tefilin – which took place in camp with his family and bunkmates. Lots of nachas to all!

Campers departed to the airport, Montreal and NY yesterday after an amazing month here in camp! This morning, we greeted our new campers bright and early, and had an early start to our new session. Following shacharis and breakfast, campers filed into the shul to hear their new bunks and counselors. Our new campers have settled nicely into their bunks and are heading off to the dining room for our first delicious lunch of second session. Excitement is in the air as our new campers are being guided by the campers that remained in camp from the first session. Looking forward to a great season together!

Later this evening, parents will be receiving an email with the bunk and class lists including the staff. Once that email is received, you can email your son through our website, using the bunk number. Please limit the email to four emails a week. 

 

First session is coming to an end.  Yesterday all sports leagues and Clugger teams had their intense and enjoyable play offs.  Last night our kitchen staff outdid themselves for a mini-banquet as all the winners of learning classes, best camper, sports leagues, and more were announced. Campers all headed to the baseball field following the banquet for a special bon fire! Songs were sung as they sadly bid farewell to the departing campers!

The last Shabbos of the first session was quite special, with extra spirit, good-bye songs and Farbrengens. Special efforts were put in by many bunks in attempt to be the winners of Shabbos competition.

Motzei Shabbos each division was treated to a special activity, as we prepare to end the first amazing session of camp. Grade 6 had a special “make your own pizza night” while section C were out in the basketball court playing and watching the fierce championship  game. Section A had a special ice cream party – with all the toppings! A few bunks enjoyed our very special bubbly soccer game.

 

Bog war is here! Campers are enjoying the races, scavengers, speeches, lively line ups and looking forward to three great plays later on today. Excitement is in the air! Have a great day!  

Campers all divisions of camp had an incredible day at Six-Flags-La-Ronde amusement park BH! They enjoyed the many new rides and roller coasters that were recently added, as well as several shows and performances! They met towards the end of the day for Mincha and a delicious Dinner of Pizza and French Fries. Everyone headed back into the park to be sure to stay till closing time. As campers boarded the bus they were each given a fresh chocolate Danish delivered straight from the Homemade Bakery, and headed back to camp for the long restful bus ride. This morning, everyone was treated to a late revile to help make up for the much needed sleep!

In the meantime, our Masmidim enjoyed the empty camp site, with lots of sports, water and boat activities following their regular Seder!

Once again our staff were recognized for their incredible work with a first class breakfast! The lox and cream cheese bagels, waffles, pastries, yogurts, omelets assorted cheeses and so much more, were beautifully set up by the head staff!   A great time was had by all.

Campers enjoyed a great day of sports, in perfect summer weather. Every playing field and boat were used to their fullest!

Last night, after a delicious schnitzel dinner, campers headed to the shul for a very special in-house-E. Our entertainer amazed us with his incredible flexibility, fitting his entire body into a tennis racket and many other breathtaking stunts.

Section C campers were rewarded for the “Hatomim” point with a delicious “Laffa-Party” event. The campers were treated as royalty by their hard working staff. As many campers were heard saying, “this tasted better than any restaurant meal”! Campers headed to bed after a great day in great spirit!

Campers were woken a bit earlier than usual this morning, giving them a head start to the amazing day ahead. Buses are loaded and all divisions of camp are off for a grand trip. Have a great day!
