It’s hard to believe that it’s already the end of the third week of camp. This week was jammed packed with a meaningful fast day, sports, laser tag, a murder mystery, Washington D.C., trampolines and preparations for the arrival of David Cutler, our esteemed guest for this coming Shabbos.
Thursday began with the first learning groups finishing up their packets about murder and moving on to a new packet about Shabbos. After lunch, each team had two intense league games of either soccer, basketball, softball, ultimate or football. After a delicious dinner and mincha, a select group of campers who were arriving early to Shachris this week were treated to an awesome pool party. Then, after a video recap of the week and Maariv, the winners of the first learning group challenge was announced, which was followed by an amazing mishmar. This mishmar may have been the greatest yet, as it featured awesome prizes, a chulent contest and a whole lot of learning in the Beis Medresh.
Friday was another classic Erev Shabbos in Camp Sports. We had learning in the morning followed by Erev Shabbos cleanup of the Beis Medrash. We played one league game, as we do every Friday, and then the rest of the afternoon was open to preparing for Shabbos. There was time to rest up, run to Wal-Mart, Rita’s, & 7/11, whatever one needs to do to get ready for Shabbos in Camp Sports! We are all looking forward to what’s sure to be an incredible and memorable Shabbos!
