Last night during tochnit erev (evening program), campers were given the special task of stepping into the shoes of famous fashion designers and creating memorable looks for the Summer 2011 season. Their models: the madrichim (counselors). Their objective: to make them look as ridiculous as possible. As you can tell by the pictures, our campers were very successful! No one could keep a straight face during this hilarious fashion show, but it was a great time for all, and gave campers a chance to get to know madrichim they don't necessarily work with every day.
Then, early this morning, Galil met another new madrich, Oded Marck, who hails from Tel Aviv, Israel and will replace Ronit Cohen as our shaliach (Israel emissary). Our shlichim come from Israel to work at camp and in the ken (year long activities) for two years at a time. They're here to help us stay connected to Israel and to bring new ideas and resources to teach Israel education effectively -- plus they're pretty amazing people! Check out the picture of Ronit and Oded below. While we will be sad to say goodbye to Ronit this fall we are so excited to work with Oded for the next two years!
