NCSY Camp Sports awesome first week report

Dear NCSY Camp Sports Parents,

Thank G-d camp has gotten off to an amazing start. It is always amazing to watch how quickly 90 teenagers from across the US, Canada, and Israel come together.

I hope to share with you weekly reports on Fridays, but before I get to that I wanted to let you know of other ways you can find out about what is happening at Camp Sports. We have exciting ways for you to connect with camp in ongoing and engaging ways. We have a camp blog which will have updates on camp events, a Facebook page and Instagram handle which showcases daily pictures and videos of camp events . All of these accounts are updated throughout the day. All you have to do is go to campsports.ncsy.org to check out the excitement of camp.

On Wednesday, once all the NCSYers arrived we had a brief orientation program followed by dinner and a four-way dorm floor vs. floor dodgeball game. The winning section of the first floor will get Rita’s ices this week. Later in the evening we learned who is in our morning learning group and played an exciting game of Panoply. Congratulations to Shai Weinstein and his group for winning and getting steaks at our weekly barbecue.

On Thursday morning, we kicked off our learning program. We have two one hour learning sessions each day. One of the groups is learning some amazing information about the Ten Commandments. In the second learning group, the NCSYers choose what they want to learn. After learning, during lunch, the NCSYers found out which sports team they are on, which is always exciting. We all wanted to get out and play sports right away, but apparently that was not to be, as a thunderstorm rolled in right as we loaded the buses to go to sports. We called an audible and took all the NCSYers to Walmart in lieu of our Friday trip to Walmart. After dinner, we got a chance to start our league sports and played our first game.

Our very famous optional Thursday night Mishmar learning program took place once everyone showered and changed. The learning in the beit midrash was beautiful. The night ended with a kumzits, raffle, and barbecue.

Today, we hope to play one league game and offer a trip to the kosher supermarket . I let the boys know that they should prepare for Shabbos since it is a big day in Camp , and we should all clean our rooms, shower, and put on proper bigdei shabbos (shabbos clothing). We look forward to having a great shabbos filled with ruach and a great week ahead.

Thank you for trusting us with your son this summer. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if I can be helpful in any way.

Have a wonderful shabbos,

Rabbi Jon Green
