Hilltop Happenings – Week 3

This was QUITE an eventful week in Camp Hilltop! Monday kicked off with a special presentation by MainStages, who entertained us with wacky characters such as “Mitzvah Man”, and brought the PJ Library story Estie the Mensch to life. On Tuesday, our Shoresh parents visited and we loved showing off what we have been learning in our activities. Wednesday took us Around the World, where each division became a different country, and we had so much fun decorating flags, dressing in colors and greeting each other in new languages. On Thursday, it was Geza and Elon parents’ turn to spend the afternoon on campus, getting a taste of what camp is like for their young ones.
Protecting and remembering our tradition of Shabbat, our Little Chefs learned how to prepare a sweet, delicious shabbat dessert: apple cakes! In Music, the campers sang their hearts out to catchy songs that have been sung for generations. Our Little Scientists had a blast experimenting with color mixing and creating musical notes by changing the water levels in glass jars. The craft projects for the week included decorating wooden trinket boxes, as well as creating sea-glass inspired window art. Our Israeli Shlichim helped us cap off this amazing week by welcoming Shabbat with us!
We can’t wait for next week, which will feature our Swim-a-thon, Anaf/Bayit parent visitation, a special performance of the Camp Aaron show AND the much-anticipated CARNIVAL DAY!
