Gesher Week 1

By JCC Camps at Medford

We’re having a great week as Gesher LITs! 
Our LITs have jumped right into the fun with their bunks, specialties and pools, and are feeling right at home.
Each week, our LITs will focus on a new skill, and this week we focused on the importance of first impressions, giving and receiving. At Orientation, we learned about and role played how to give a great first impression to our campers, bunk counselors, and participated in a program about not making quick first impressions about others before getting to know them.
This week, we also held our first two leadership programs in which the LITs continue to build their leadership skills. In our Thursday session, we focused on how to best work with our campers and have personal boundaries while working. And for Shabbat, we focused on the Jewish values that are important to us as individuals and at camp.
On Wednesday, we had an awesome trip to Philadelphia for the Red Pedal Tour! The LITs worked hard to power our trolleys and enjoyed treats at Scoop D’ville, Insomnia Cookie and Happily Ever After.
Next week we will be going to the Ocean City on Wednesday to relax and enjoy the beach and board walk. We are very excited to be going to Ropes, as well. We can’t wait!
