Eidah Gimmel 2016 / 5776

Time of her life  

Abie sounds like he had the greatest time of his life! He is in the best mood and can’t stop talking about camp. It’s the sweetest thing… He wants to teach us all the songs and dances he learned… He already davened mincha before going to bed… And bought us his favourite shekem snack at IGA. We feel like sending him to camp was money very very well spent!

Oh… And I asked him if Vicky is a good camp director, and he said “Great!”

When I asked him if kids are scared of you, he looked at me like I was crazy and he said “no, she is so nice!!”

Thanks for taking such great care of our little man!

Lots of love

Memorable experience  

It has been a very fulfilling and memorable experience for them in may ways. Camp is like a big family. My kids were very well taken care of when needing medical attention, which is very important when they are away from their parents. The nurse and camp director stepped in and made sure they felt nurtured and safe until well enough to return to their activities. They got a chance to disconnect from their everyday life, forge strong friendships, and be exposed to certain activities that they cannot do during the year at home and while at school (water sports, horseback riding, archery, for example). Very important as well, it deepened their pride in their Judaism and community through learning, song, dance and just plain cheerfulness!|The staff work very hard to make sure to offer a wide range of activities to please kids with many different interests. All campers feel included in a spirit of warmth and joy, and most importantly, the staff works to ensure that all campers plainly have fun. It is the kids’ happiest time of the year!!

Rosh Eidah Gimmel

Hi everyone! I am so excited be Rosh Eidah Gimmel this year!! Let me tell you a little about myself—my name is Zev Wasserman, I’m 20 years old, I’m currently at the Schulich School of Business and I’m 6’4. That last fact is, of course, the most important. This coming summer will be my eighth summer at camp, and I’m pumped that I’m going to be spending it with all of you! Moshava’s always been important to me—I loved working as a counselor for 3 years, then as a sgan and then as rosh eidah. I’ve always had an amazing time at camp, and I know this year will be no exception. Gimmel’s really where it’s at—I can’t wait for a summer full of overnights, megamot, rocking night tochniot and fantastic trips! If anyone has any suggestions or comments or questions or just want to chill, please get in touch! My email is zzwass@hotmail.com. I know we’re going to have an amazing time this summer—start getting excited!!
