VISITORS FROM BALTIMORE
Throughout the summer, we have visits from synagogues, youth groups, day schools and other organizations. Our campers love to welcome these visitors and show off how proud they are of Camp Louise!
This summer, we had the privilege of having members from the Baltimore Associated, Ashkelon & Odessa Partnerships, Krieger Schechter Day School, and Chizuk Amuno Congregation all come on the same day to visit us and all of our Odessa & Ashkelon campers. We greeted the team and took them for a tour around camp – showing them our Adventure Park, Greenhouse, Solarium and Jill’s Place. Along our tour, they were able to hear about camp from some of our staff members (an international Unit Leader from Wales, Tech Department member from Israel, and our Odessa Chaperone).
After the tour, we had lunch together. Although the campers shared that they have enjoyed the food – they did say that Shabbat was their favorite because they got to have soup!
During lunch, the campers were excited to talk about what they have been doing at camp. One of the campers said, “The pool is my favorite place because everyone can be together and share about their day at camp with friends from my bunk.” The campers also shared that they were enjoying archery, tennis, Adventure Park, and basket weaving in Art & Crafts. They also talked about how much they have enjoyed the evening programs, especially the Camper Talent Show.
This is the first time the girls have had an experience of being in a bunk bed, and they loved that they can personalize their bunk with their names and hang pictures to make it their own.
We may not all speak the same first language, but we have so much in common with our new friends from Odessa and Ashkelon! It’s a win-win for all of us!
Goodnight. Shalom. Nadobranich.
Happy UN-Birthday to everyone!
