Day in the Life

October 17th, 2013

Curious what your camper does while at camp? Now you have the answers.

7:45 a.m. (Wishful thinking?): Wake up.

7:50: Shower. (They do that, right. Right?!)

8:15: Eat breakfast consisting of Grape-Nuts, lowfat yogurt and fruit. Maybe some broccoli for good measure.

8:30: Leave for bus or Beth El.

8:45-9:15: Arrive at Beth El.

9:15-9:30: Greeted by counselors; play games in respective meeting area; sing and laugh.

9:30: Load buses to go to respective park. Counselors song lead on the bus.

9:45ish: Arrive at park.

9:50: Kumsitz (skits performed by counselors for the campers. Think of it as our version of a Broadway Musical, without the music).

Ilana, Kat, Sophie, Will and Gabe do “Party Quirks.” Hollywood will be calling any day…

10:05: Activities begin, ranging from arts and crafts to drama games to sports activities.

11:00ish: Lunch (differs by day, by program, but ALWAYS includes Fuzzy Milk).

A nice cup of fuzzy milk! 8.5 for fuzz, 10.0 for accuracy

11:30: Lunch finishes. More activities ensue. (Some programs will head to the pool at this time. At the pool they swim. But you probably knew that…).

Sometime in the afternoon:
E-Schoen, the infamous songleader, will come share some tunes with both the staff and kids. There are hand motions.

Habonim rockin’ out

2:15: Snircle. Snircle is a the combination of snack and friendship circle. Cheez-Its, Goldfish and Wheat Thins are popular choices.

2:30:
Load the buses and head back to Beth El.

2:45:
Arrive at Beth El. Go to afternoon destinations.

3:30-3:50:
Arrive at afternoon destinations. Tell parents that they, “Didn’t do much today,” despite having an awesomely-fun day.

4:00: Go to sleep because they are exhausted. Dream about kumsitz, theme days and ruach.

*Times in red are things that happen at home, not at camp. And they’re jokes. But you already knew that!
