Cedarwood Weekly Update
There is no better way to cap off the first session than the way we did this week. There was so much energy and ruach (spirit) in the air that many of the kids were smiling more than they ever have. We had some events like, “The Main Event” which is an end of the year party with music, pictures, and the campers favorite, ice cream.
Secondly, we had Olympics! All of CW was on the blue team and it was amazing to see them all competing in activities whether it was Lego building, Arts and Crafts, sports, waterfront, or Wacky games. I consistently saw them smiling and happy and truly competing as a team. Although they did not win, the unity they all shared and the hug they all had to console each other was very heartwarming. Under the stars at the theater seeing this group of kids give each other high fives and hugs was very touching.
Events to look forward to include the last Shabbat of 1st session, which is always exciting and especially with the amount of camp spirit in the air. Lastly, we have SLC Sing, the idea of Sing is that we put together a song, this year’s theme is universe. Our song will all be recorded so you can see the dance (and us winning i hope) on youtube. Cedarwood has been reaching its potential within the last week, and I am excited to see how the campers cap it off and finish strong. We are all going to miss the campers that are leaving and hope to make this last end of the week memorable.
