Summer Camp ... Winter Camp ...

Summer camp is almost over, and we are already preparing for Winter camp!

Winter camp 2011 will take place this year between Tuesday, December 20th, and Sunday, December 25th, at Camp Mountain Chai; the same location we were at last year. This beautiful, kosher mountain retreat facility has comfortable winterized cabins and lodges, and lots of new areas to play in and explore.

Here are the Winter Camp flyer and registration form. We're looking forward to see all of you, and many of your friends.

After Shabbat dinner, we have our Shabbat shira (singing) and rikud (dancing)

Shabbat Shalom !

Yom Meyuchad (Special Day) started the session off with a bang. The madrichim created a post-apocolyptic consumerist dystopia populated by cannibalistic zombies. Chadar Ochel turned into a wasteland. As the day progressed, the chanichim learned about the dangers of consumption and developed the tools to create their own sustainable society.

Madrichim were not such a beautiful sight for the eyes. They really got into character...

The leader ordered everyone to go out and consume as much as possible.

Sunscreen happens even in Wasteland

"Use as much oil as possible" Station

"Consuming Mashmallows" Stations

Before lunch, the "Leader" announced that all resources have run out, and the population now had to compete for them. One of the groups did so at a mud-gaga game.

In the afternoon, after society had reached the deepest desperation …
