Camp Galil was an exciting place to be today with movement galore. The day had a lot in store with the arrival of the Nitzanim (our Taste of Galil campers who are going into 3rd grade) and a visit from the Jewish Federation of Philadelphia. We were very excited for the youngest members of our community to join us! Check out the amazing picture of our newest, youngest campers plus one of two of their madrichim (counselors). Welcome to the Galil family, Nitzanim!
Our campers enjoyed a breakfast of tasty french toast alongside our usual delicious breakfast buffet which features various fruits, cereals, and yogurts. After breakfast, all campers took part in a special avoda (work time) to help clean Galil after three days jam-packed with special events. Next came peulat shicvah (activities by age group). Today multiple age groups had special activities run that focused on Israeli culture. The Bonim (campers going into 9th grade) watched a movie called 'Promises' about Israeli-Arab co-existence while enjoying homemade kafe kar (iced coffee) and pita. Across camp the Bogrim (campers going into 10th grade) learned about the protests for social justice happening now in Israel.
The next part of the day was chugim (interest groups). Campers choose their activity on the first day of the session from a wide variety including World Cup Soccer, knitting and crocheting, photography, and clothing design. Lunch followed with a delicious salad bar and chicken.
The day continued with our other yom ragil (regular day) activities such as sports, sadnaot (workshops), and shira (singing). After a burrito dinner, each age group will do evening activities together then head to bed nice and early!
Tomorrow the Bonim will leave for tiyul (hiking trip) for a wonderful day filled with kvutzah (group) bonding and beautiful scenery.
That's all folks!
