Can you believe we are only one month away from June? We are beyond excited for Galil's 66th summer to begin! However, before Opening Day we still have a few more important events for campers, new families, and friends of Galil.
Our annual Spring Work Day, Open House, and New Family Orientation is only FIVE DAYS away! This is a wonderful opportunity for returning families and alumni to help us prepare camp for the summer by planting the garden, painting, cleaning, and to help welcome our new families by sharing what you love about Galil. Anyone who is considering camp for their own family in 2012 or 2013 is welcome to take a tour and meeting with our families and professional staff to ask questions. If you would like to sign up for Work Day or the Open House, please contact Ilana Goldfus, Assistant Director at (609) 558-1395 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to see you all at camp on Sunday, May 6th!
Spring Open House and New Family Orientation
Please join us on Sunday, May 6th 2pm to 4pm to learn more about Camp Galil! This is a wonderful event for new families as well as those who are considering joining the Galil camping family in 2012 or 2013. Your visit will begin with a guided tour of our campsite, followed by games for new campers (if your child likes sports, please be sure they wear sneakers!) and a question & answer session for parents with our professional staff. You will also have the opportunity to connect with other campers, new families, and returning families who can share their own Galil experiences.
Please register online here by Friday, May 4th or contact Ilana at email@example.com or (609) 558-1395. We hope to see you at camp on Sunday!
Spring Work Day
All members of the Galil community are invited to camp on Sunday, May 6th 11am to 3pm to help us ready and beautify Camp Galil for our 66th summer! We will have projects for every volunteer regardless of size, strength, or skill level. We will be preparing our garden, planting seeds, painting, cleaning, and welcoming our guests for the Spring Open House. Please let Ilana know that you will be joining us.
Camp Galil at Society Hill Synagogue
Interested in learning more about Camp Galil? Please join us at Society Hill Synagogue on Tuesday, May 8th 5:15pm-6:15pm to learn more! Galil's professional staff and summer counselors will be presenting our traveling "Yom Israel" exhibit to the students plus tabling and speaking with parents.
Our annual weekend at camp! Get excited for the upcoming summer and catch up with your camp friends during Spring Seminar Friday, May 18th to Sunday, May 20th. Registration is available online here.
**Please note: Spring Seminar is more of a reunion for returning campers than a "taste" of camp. We do not recommend the program for new campers or families considering Galil for the future. If you would like to further discuss, please contact Ilana Goldfus, Assistant Director at (609) 558-1395 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
