Welcome to Camp 2022!

Dear NCSY Camp Sports Parents,

Thank G-d camp has gotten off to an amazing start! It is always amazing to watch how quickly nearly 100 teenagers from across the US and Canada come together. This is our biggest summer yet and we know it’s going to be fabulous.

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 all of the excitement of camp.

Now let’s share with you some of what happened this week. On Wednesday, once all the NCSYers arrived we had a brief orientation program followed by dinner and a fierce four-way dorm floor vs. floor dodgeball game. The winning section of the second floor got Rita’s ices as an awesome prize. We also spent time explaining the rules, safety protocoll and the day to day of how camp works.

On Thursday morning, we kicked off our learning program. We have two one-hour learning sessions each day. One of the groups focuses on learning about daily brachos, blessings. In the second learning group, the NCSYers choose what they want to learn. After learning, during lunch, the teens found out which sports team they are on, which is always an exciting part of camp. Then we headed out to the fields for an energy packed afternoon of leagues. After dinner we went for an evening swim and cooled down from the long hot day! Once we got back to camp we ran our first optional Thursday night Mishmar learning program of the summer. The learning in the beit midrash was beautiful. The night ended with a kumzits, raffle, and rocking barbecue.

Today, we hope to play one league game after the learning program and then offer the boys a trip to Target and the local 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 are looking forward to having an uplifting and fun first shabbos, and getting to know one another and bonding as a camp. We have incredible advisors and staff this year and we are looking forward to facilitating lasting relationships between the teens and staff.

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. Looking forward to a great week ahead!

Have a wonderful shabbos,

Rabbi Jon Green
