Maccabiah Madness Invades Camp Aaron! – week 8

Camp Aaron… The Sweetest Place on Earth!

While some may think that Hershey Park is the Sweetest Place on Earth, for the past week, Camp Aaron has assumed that title. During the past week our 4 teams: Green M&M’s, Blue Nestle Crunch, Red Twizzlers, and Yellow Laffy Taffy battled it out on the field, the arts pavilion, the pool, and on the stage. Monday and Tuesday, the campers were able to select the activities that they competed in and on Wednesday and Thursday there were team activities.  These activities include a swim meet, Minute to Win It, a giant board game competition led by Unique Entertainment, and Relays/Games on the Sports Field.  With the final score still in question, our week came to a culmination with our Apache Relay and our “Sign, Song, and Cheer” Competition. Each team put forth their best effort and will share Maccabiah memories for years to come.

As the camping season comes to a close it’s time to reminisce about what an amazing summer we had this year. In addition to their favorites (Crafts, Lake Inflatables, Archery, etc….) campers were introduced to many new Camp Aaron activities including Pickleball, X-Fit, Beekeeping, Krav Maga, and Magic. We had a memorable time on our overnights, during Carnival Day, Israel Day, and with all our other special events. Within these activities friendships were formed and/or strengthened.  We will miss our 8th grade friends, but look forward to seeing them move up to be LITs next summer.

It has been another wonderful summer for everyone in Camp Aaron! Thank you for sharing your children with us. I hope everyone has a great camp off-season and we’ll look forward to seeing everyone back in Medford for Summer 2016!

Shabbat Shalom!
