Gurim July 31st Updates!

Author - Camp Yavneh

The past few days at camp have been so great! Friday night was our first Shabbat at camp. We started of the evening with ReleSh (Ruach Lifney Shabbat) by singing songs in the Beit Am to start off the evening. Since, it was a beautiful night we davened Kabbalat Shabbat outside at Gilboa (outside amphitheater). Following the service, we all gathered to eat a yummy Shabbat meal full of soup, chicken and challah. Saturday morning we davened shacharit, ate breakfast and joined the rest of camp for Musaf. We enjoyed an afternoon of free time with our friends and then came together for our bunk check-in, sicha and then dinner. We ended the night with Havdallah and went to bed to rest before another fun day.

Sunday afternoon we enjoyed a peulah with our Maalot buddies! Maalot campers (who are campers going into 10th grade) were paired with 2-3 Gurim campers and played question games to get to know each other before our next Maalot Gurim Peulah (also referred to as Ma Gu Pu). We ended the hot afternoon at the Agam. After dinner, we divided up into tzrifim (bunks) and had our night activities, which included erev debate, erev desserts, and erev ninja! We settled back into our bunks and went to bed after a fantastic day.

Stay tuned for our first out of camp trip day!
