Winter Camp Ideal travels through Israel's history
Winter Camp Ideal was an extremely busy and fun packed week for our campers. Not only did they enjoy two trips (sledding at St. Pat’s Park and a dodgeball tournament at Sky Zone), but they also traveled through Israel’s history along with their guides, the Wandering Jews!
Counselors and Hadracha campers (our Counselors-in-Training) put on skits each day to show our campers what it may have been like to be a part of Jewish history from the time of the story of Channukah up until the establishment of the Jewish state of Israel. This was accomplished through dozens of planned activities based on the time period we were traveling through, created by our amazingly talented staff!
Counselors put in hours of work, considering how to teach the campers valuable lessons, while focusing on new and fun ways to do so. Sports competitions, art projects, model debates, music and dancing were all tools used to instill a taste of what the Jewish people have been through, and how Israel came to be.
It culminated in an awesome winter themed Shi’shuk market with Challot and handmade chocolate bars! We hope to keep the energy up with more Camp Ideal activities in the upcoming months as we prepare for Summer 2023! Can’t wait to see our Camp Families then!
