Camp Aaron – Week 5

Camp Aaron is Awesome!

On Monday we welcomed our new 2nd half campers.  Monday was also the start of Israel Week. The campers were treated to a falafel lunch and many discovered a newfound liking for falafel and hummus.  Wednesday was Israel Day and our Schlichim Roni, and the rest of the Camp Aaron staff, did an amazing job.  There were 3 areas: Israel Under British Rule, Israel Independence, and Israel in the 21st Century.  The campers rotated between the different areas and saw a video, learned a dance, and played games.

Thursday we had a double dose of fun.  The Bible Players came and did a workshop with a group of our campers and later performed for all of Camp Aaron.  Later that day, Arad had their overnight.  As a special treat we bused the campers to the JCC in Cherry Hill where they enjoyed some games, a pizza dinner, an interactive game show with Hollyrock Entertainment, Ice Cream, and a night swim.

Our Sleep-a-weekers are anxiously packing their duffle bags for a week away at NJ Y Camps. We’ll miss them next week, but look forward to hearing all their exciting stories upon their return.

As another week flies by, we find ourselves looking forward to Ruach Week.

 

B’Shalom,
