Excitement was brewing in Dorney Park. Starting from the lunch area, and then making its way into the park itself. Visitors looked on as the Rebbe’s camp took the park by storm. Chants of, “CGI, CGI,” as well as other Gan Yisroel cheers, were heard throughout the park. From the Merry-go-round to the meanest roller coaster; from the log flume to the dizziest ride, Gan Yisroel influenced the park throughout, and made a huge Kiddush Hashem. People were impressed as they looked on, and wanted to learn more, which they did.
As much as the park enjoyed the campers, the campers enjoyed it, because having the time of your life is what’s expected from the greatest camp on earth.
After a hit play by the Bar Mitzvah Division, bringing the campers back to 1600s and a sinister plot, the campers Davened Maariv and headed for their bunkhouses, only to discover that a suspicious yellow paper had appeared on each and every campers pillow. On it was written a special message; basically: GET UP EARLY; WE WILL BE GOING ON A GRAND TRIP. Where to? To the park of excitement and wonders¦ DORNEY PARK!
The campers practiced their survival skills, collecting wood, building a fire, and roasting marshmallows, followed by a night under the stars (or rather, tent roofs). In the campers’ words, “We had such a great time!”
At the plays, the Fresh Air Foundation (MBP) sponsored executive seating for select silver members of the Fresh Air Miles program. While these campers enjoyed these great seats on high comfortable bleachers, they also enjoyed an unlimited supply of soda and popcorn.
These campers all earned their status as silver members by attending Fresh Air Club (formely known as cocoa club) and learning the rebbe’s Hayom Yom in the early morning hours.
“The awards are only going to get better,” says CEO of the Fresh Air Foundation, Moshe Frank. “So I strongly reccomend all campers to join”.
Here’s a list of the campers who had executive seating arrangements:
M.M. Treitel (A)
M.M. Treitel (V)
Yisrael Yosef Gollub
M.M. Raskin (Bunk Yud Aleph)
Chaim Dovid Grossbaum
