Maalot Blog – Week Two Second Month

Author - Camp Yavneh

Hello patiently-waiting blog readers!

Sorry my blog is so late! I’m going to forgo telling you about anything else and will only tell you about the trip we were just on to Acadia National Park in Maine!

Our journey started the day we were all born, but this particular camp trip day started on Monday. We loaded onto the coach bus driven by our fearless driver RÍcharde. Because we’re such a large ayda, a few chanichim had to go on a van with Netanel, the head of the Yavneh Food Service. Netanel came with us and cooked us delicious steak, hot dogs, eggs, corn, and lots of other food. The drive was 4 and a half hours long, but we watched Juno which is one of my all time favorite movies and has an extremely good soundtrack!

Once we arrived at the campsite on Monday evening, we unpacked and had dinner. Then we drove to the top of Cadillac mountain to watch the sunset. It was beautiful! Then we headed back to the campsite and went to sleep. Zzzzzzz

Tuesday was such a busy day! We split up into two groups for the day. First, one group went rock climbing, one of my personal favorite activities!! We lowered ourselves down the sides of cliffs and then climbed back up. I personally found it AMAZING and would have done it for longer if I could have. At the same time, the other group went mini golfing and then meandered around Bar Harbor, the local town (It’s a pretty neat place and is home to two cool biological laboratories!). After both groups finished, we met back up for lunch and then switched activities. At night we had a nice dinner and had some s’mores and went stargazing. What a day!

Wednesday was sadly our last day. After packing up, we headed off to hike Gorham mountain, a nice little peak by the ocean. The hike had beautiful views of the ocean and there was a lot of cool fog to look at. After that, we hopped back on the bus and drove the 4 and a half hours back to camp.

I hope this blog post has conveyed to you just how awesome our trip was. Nearly all of our chanichim told us that they had a great time, and I can personally say it was the most fun camp trip that I’ve been on. The activities were fun, the nature was stunning, and overall, everyone had a great time. Keep and eye out for the 200 pictures that I uploaded!

Til next time folks,
