מסעי-שבת קודש פרשת מטות
My Kup Veitug No words can describe the awesomeness that went on in camp this past week. But we’ll write it in a few short words, hopefully it will remind you of what took place. Shabbos was once again filled with Chayus, as we collected tickets for Sunday’s carnival. And ended off with a Shmoyonke about Sunday.
We were split into 3 teams: B e f i c h a , Bilvovcha and Laasoso. The competition was fierce from the start, with each team singing their cheers, and learning MBP. Tuesday we were treated to some scavengers, featuring Snags, Yoelis, Midgets, and more!
Sunday was visiting day (Aha!) and carnival day with mini golf, water fights, races, games, and much more!
That night we watched the first play. Mafia, kidnappings, but in the end it all turned out well. (Thanks to the umbrella man!)
We watched Halber Gebaken and found out who is stealing the baby.
The next day we had 2 more scavengers (with the umbrella man).
Monday seemed like a regular day, except the fact that people were stealing… and being sent to the director… BOG WAR!
Each team made a heart wrenching song, filled with emotion and overall beautifulness. The second play a
learning teacher spoke about Sheidim, Rambam, Chanukah and Purim. The third play was a very emotional story about the holocaust. That night the winners of Bog War were announced: LARONDE! After a good nights sleep, we spent a full day on roller coasters and everything else that goes on in the worlds greatest amusement park. Freezes, Pazatztas and more. It was defiantly the grandest trip ever! I wish I can write more but there is no room. A Gut Shabbos!

ATH: Stop! ATH: Tell us about you life, how does it happen? ATH: Well first of all, I’m locked in a room most of the time, and my “creator” still doesn’t have a key to my room. ATH: So how does he create you? ATH: In the last minute.
ATH: Only on Friday nights.
ATH: Then what happens?
ATH: What about the rest of the week?
ATH: After being typed I’m shipped off to the main office on a little chip.
ATH: I am usually thrown all over the place, and ripped into many pieces, by the time it is the end of the week! ATH: What is your message to the campers?
ATH: Interesting, how does that feel? ATH: Very humbling. ATH: What’s next?
This week we asked the following question to 770 random campers and here are the results:

ATH: Thank you for your time. Hey! Stop biting me, I’m just a piece of paper, I’M NOT FOOD! Just because a camper spilled some Babaganush on me… Stop!
