Group Spotlight: 6/7 Girls
Written by Brianna Manginelli, Counselor
The 6/7 girls were fascinated by Finding Dory on their first trip of the summer and a few even dressed up as her for Pixar Day! They loved the Jewish Children's Museum and enjoyed doing things like pretend grocery shopping, learning about charity, and helping their peers--lessons which coincide with those learned in Jewish Culture. Adventureland was a success with the girls, despite them being a bit too short for some rides, they couldn't stop taking about how much fun it was. On our trip to the aquarium they couldn't get enough of the great Sea Lion Show as they jumped up and cheered throughout the entire show.
It is clear that the 6/7 Girls are having a great summer as smiles continuously spread across their faces and we can't wait for the second session!

Even when we don't go on trips, we still have lots of fun in camp. Whenever we see Ilan in Jewish Culture, we make some great treats. The cookie brittle that we made was delectable and tasty. After we make the treats, we always rush down to see Greg in the gym where we play basketball and knockout. It's always so much fun when we're playing Knockout and someone gets out, but at the end of the day, although competitive, we're all friends. Once we sweat in the gym, we all want to jump into the pool where Rob, Steve, Melissa, and Brian watch over us.
We want to say thank you to Howie, Matt, Suzanne, Rob, Brian, and Bacharach for grilling the burgers and hot dogs every Wednesday. Every BBQ is a blast when we go to the park and swing on the swings. We love Fridays too, when Rabbi Kogan teaches us a new song or we sing an old favorite. But most of all, we can't wait for Color War. We went to the right place for camp and hope to come back next summer!
