In the years before Gimmel Tammuz the campers enjoyed a special attention for the rebbe and would come in from camp to partake in the Farbrengen that was held in 770.
This year the camp made its first stop at the Ohel where campers and staff members got to read a pan and recite the Maaneh Lashon, and from there they made their way to 770 where they Davened Mincha, recited the 12 Pesukim and sang camp songs.
