NCSY Camp Sports stupendous second week report

Dear Parents,

I hope you are doing well and are enjoying the beginning of the summer. Here at NCSY Camp Sports, we keep the days filled with meaningful and fun activities. As we complete our first full week of camp, it has been wonderful watching friendships develop, sports teams compete, and especially seeing each camper enjoy, even with some extra rain mixed in.

Last week I emailed you as we headed into Shabbos, and I must say we had a great first Shabbos here in camp. The dancing and singing at the Shabbos meals and davening was memorable. We are all looking forward to another great Shabbos which we hope will be even better. Last Shabbos, after an inspiring davening and Shabbos meal, each league team joined together for an Oneg where we got to know each other off the field. The Shabbos day meal was also inspirational and fun. It was full of the famous Camp NCSY Sports Ruach. In the afternoon we caught up on some much needed sleep, we ate the third meal, and joined together for singing and inspiration. As Shabbos ebbed away, I spoke about getting the most out of camp and not missing opportunities. On Saturday Night, we had a blast bowling.

Sunday was a late wake up from our busy Shabbos. After some learning in the morning, we heard about elections 2020 from Dr. David Luchins. Dr. Luchins is a former assistant to senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan and is currently a Dean at Lander Touro College . Dr. Luchins and his wife Vivian, who is the founding chair of NCSY’s Summer Committee, joined us for the rest of the day and spoke to the NCSYers. In the afternoon, we played two sports games and later that night we started our camp 5 on 5 basketball league.

Monday we headed out to the sweetest place on earth, Hershey Park. It was a pretty sweet day and everyone really enjoyed. Tuesday was a regular day of learning and sports, but we had a surprise trip to the pool at night. The pool has an amazing slide and diving board. You can see some great pictures in the camp video for week 2 posted online.

Wednesday, we did not play our regular league games; rather we got to pick a sport we enjoyed and had some “pick-up games”. These included, basketball. soccer, frisbee, and Spike-ball., After these games, we headed to Hagerstown, MD to watch the Suns game. Although the Suns lost, we all had a great time.

Thursday, after league games started the skies opened up and we had to cancel our second game. Instead, we took a trip to Walmart. After Mincha we had a great night activity followed by an amazing.mishmar. Mishmar is optional but most NCSYers showed up and got rewarded with late night yapchk and kugel. This week’s mishmar prizes featured a wireless speaker and a GoPro as well as a huge Hershey stuffed animal and huge Kit Kat bar.

We are looking forward to another great shabbos. Today we will play a league game and go to the kosher supermarket to restock..

One last note: to reach the office, please call our secretary, Chani, 917-513-3383, or my cell phone 516-316-8782.

Have a wonderful Shabbos!
Rabbi Jon Green
