Upper Mountainview Week Two Update
This week has been a fun week for Upper Mountain View. On Thursday we celebrated with a famous SLC BBQ! Mountainview shared a picnic outside and loved it!
Happy Friday everyone! One of the best things at camp is having staff from around the world, from England, to Argentina to Israel. In mountainview we are very lucky to have some Israeli counselors. During hafsaka (rest hour) one group asked the counselors to teach them some Hebrew so they can make the counselors feel more at home! One of the words they learnt is ‘Sa-ba-ba’ which means great!
On Sunday, camp had a special event, breakdancers! Mountainview Upper learned some new dance moves, staff joined in with the campers to try the dance moves too. During the dance circle, one camper gained the courage to show off her dances moves and everyone cheered her on.
On Monday during the pool party, one camper had a new experience. After just recently passing her deep water test, with encouragement from her friends she jumped into the deep end of the pool and all of Mountainview cheered!
Tuesday we had a bonfire! For many campers this was their first time roasting marshmallows here at SLC! It was great to growing our sense of the SLC community as we sat around the fire singing songs.
Wednesday brought the sun back to SLC and brought some new experiences to one of our groups! One camper was apprehensive about holding one of the animals but she worked up the courage to eventually pet the animal.
Yesterday our campers had an amazing Carnival day including great rides, bomb pops, activities and treats.
We are looking forward to welcoming Shabbat and an amazing next week. We will keep you posted!
