Boulder Hill Weekly Update
As we near the 6-week mark, it’s hard to believe how quickly the past couple of weeks have gone by, with the past week being no exception. Camper participation has been at an all-time high, with plenty of staff v. camper games. Last night, we had an all teenside volleyball and ping pong tournament, and it was amazing to see everybody getting involved and hyping each other up. Yesterday was Israel Day, and our Israeli counselors led various stations throughout the morning to really give us an idea of what life in Israel is like. We had Israeli snacks, played field games, had our own version of bootcamp, and even made pita! Our meals throughout the day were Israeli-themed, and the campers absolutely loved it.
Earlier on in the week, our unit took a hike, led by Whammy, partially up the way to Bull Hill. Per my request, Whammy led us to a spot with blueberry bushes-a-plenty, where campers were encouraged to pick as many blueberries as they could possibly hold. The campers who were in the culinary specialty picked berries specifically to use them in their baking the following day, and their efforts were not for naught, as they were able to create delicious blueberry muffins.
Last night, Whammy took campers from all units to a beautiful sunset hike, which all of the campers thoroughly enjoyed. Today will be our last Shabbat all together with the 6-week campers, and we can all certainly feel the Shabbat spirit in the air already.
