Have you ever wondered what it is like to ride a bus to camp? You should ask one of the buses that recently won bus of the week. Bus of the week can be earned for many different reasons, some of which include: being spirited, being organized, having fun, being friendly, and inclusive. Our “spies” ride the buses each week looking out for all of these different things. On Fridays at dismissal it is tradition that Yomi Bear appears at camp and helps announce the bus of the week winners. If your camper’s bus wins Bus of the Week, make sure to congratulate them – it’s a big deal in our world!
Despite all the rain, group 14 had an extraordinary week! On Monday we headed over to the hotel to watch The Emperors New Grove. We all sat and watched in anticipation waiting to see what would happen to Cusco next! On Tuesday we were overjoyed to see sunny skies — especially for our late night! We started our day at nature, where we got to see a real robins’ egg and played with worms! Next we headed to kickball and then soccer! After that we had time to chill out at photography where we decorated frames for future photographs we would take home. Since it was late night, we had swim 3 periods in a row! After our third swim, we played lots of fun games; during the scavenger hunt we got stamps from different countries for our passports after we found a clue! Wednesday, Yomi Bears birthday, was a total blast! Again, the rain couldn’t ruin our day, so we headed to the hotel. We even listed to music and danced in our seats on the way! When we arrived, the party was just getting started. Units K, 1, and 2 all danced and sang together with a live entertainer! On Thursday, we made beautiful bracelets, necklaces, and keychains! Then we had our very first Yomi Idol practice! We learned and practiced our skills at tennis- loudly cheering each other on! Group 14 agreed, Friday came way too fast this week! We happily enjoyed Israel Day and all its festivities! Shabbat, as always, was lively and fun. It was such a great way to end a great week. We wish you all a great weekend and can’t wait for Monday!
