On Thursday morning, after a late return from Hershey the night before, the guys dragged themselves out of bed for another exciting day of camp. After an inspiring learning groups, they had lunch and boarded the buses to go to Randallstown High School where the leagues are played. It was another Baltimore hot summer day, but they pushed through another intense couple of games. After nighttime open sports, the guys returned to the Beit Medrash for our first Mishmar of the Summer. The campers learned with the advisers for an hour and then Rabbi Green raffled off many awesome prizes including steaks, Arizona Iced Teas, and even a fridge to use for the summer. After the raffle, there was a Mishmar BBQ for the whole camp at 12:30 AM! Here’s how Yaakov Kamensky described mishmar:
In Mishmar I learned that its not only about the prizes and even the learning torah, its about having fun and making sure you learned a lesson. And the prizes are just an incentive. Me and two of my friends learned with my awesome learning Rebbe, Rabbi Wiener. After Mishmar, Rabbi Green raffled off some awesome prizes and then there was a camp-wide bbq – Yaakov Kamensky, Pittsburgh, PA
After one league game and a trip to Wal-Mart, we are now getting ready for our first full Shabbos in camp, which promises to be exciting.
