Head Counselors at Gan Israel in Parksville, NY, are walking around camp grounds with photos that have campers at their best.
The head staff at Camp Gan Israel in Parksville, NY, came up with an incentive that has campers davening beautifully and strengthening their chassidishkeit.
A uniquely designed calendar for the coming Hebrew year of 5772 has the campers eagerly collecting photos of the Rebbe to fill it.
On each page of the calendar, there are spaces for pictures of the Rebbe which correspond to that day.
Each month has photos of the Rebbe corresponding to the special dates that appear in them – Jewish Yomim Tovim and special chassidic dates.
Davening, learning, and playing in a good manner earn the campers the chance to be awarded the photos with stickers which they apply to the calendar.
At the end of the summer, campers will be taking their calendar home for year-round inspiration.
