Camp is in full swing!

Posted by on July 2, 2015

Wow, it has really been a wild first couple of days at camp! The beginniing of a session is always filled with big events, excitement and lots of Schechter tradition. Our campers have moved into their cabins, bonded with their counselors and bunkmates, joined maccabiah teams, started chuggim (activities), swam in the lake, explored the bog, climbed on the challenge course, shopped for candy in the Schechter canteen, cooked out down at the river, played sports and celebrated Canada Day with conga lines, face paint and a fireworks show!  We don’t wade into the daily routine here at Schechter, we dive right into our jam packed schedule on day one!  

Check out some of my favorite photos from the 2nd and 3rd days of camp!

Campers pick radishes out of the Schechter ginah (garden). Under the guidance of David Stein, we've been able to have fresh produce in our salad bar at meal times.

There's never a wrong time for a spontaneous conga line to break out, as counselor Emma Bortz demonstrates here with campers and Odedim.
