Chalutz staff welcome back campers on the first day of camp with brightly colored signs on the morning car pool line.

Dogtags...Collect Them All!

Each week campers will have the opportunity to earn dog tags that symbolize the Jewish value of the week. This past Friday campers were given a chain to hold their dog tags on. They can be earned by doing something that identifies with the value of the week.
