Gesher LIT’s get going!

By JCC Camps at Medford

This week the LITs had a great Israel Week at camp! We have traveled to the Kibbutz with our campers and learned about the animals they have, we have visited the army and participated in relay races and had a great Israeli music dance party.

Tuesday, the LITs worked together to support the camp community.  The LITs gathered for a community service project in which they made sensory items for the Open Hearts/ Open Doors Program.  They worked hard to make stress balls, rain sticks and more to help our campers have a good day at camp.

Wednesday, the LITs traveled to iPlay America.  At iPlay, the LITs had a great time playing the arcade games, enjoying the rides, playing laser tag and more!

Last Friday, the LITs selected the 4 finalists for our Gesher Philanthropy Initiative Grant, and this week at Shabbat, the LITs listened to presentations from the finalists’ organizations and asked questions. The LITs were very attentive and are excited to finalize the grant process next week.

Next week, the LITs will be working hard during Ruach week, helping with camp collections and a camp improvement service project. We will also be going to the Phillies game on Monday.

Shabbat Shalom!
