BOG WAR!!!

“Attention all campers and counselors, your attention please! Tonight we are playing outdoor laser tag! Everyone must make there way to the hill and dress in something dark, and then go back to the square and wait for further instructions!”

The campers scattered across camp to get dressed up for an exciting on Campus activity with specially rented laser tag equipment. When the campers returned to the square, there where a few staff members going around and painting each campers face brown, claiming it would make everyone invisible when the night vision goggles where given out! Completely bewildered, the campers obliged, and waited as a large yellow truck pulled up with the laser tag parts. Suddenly the doors burst opened and the staff screamed “BOG WAR!!!” And it was off to a start! The teams where split up, the generals, and lieutenant generals where divided, each explaining his teams Toichen. The scavengers came next and boy did they get the floor rolling! From and Israeli barber shop to an international cooking show, these skits where surely a success! The next morning there was Mishnayos Baal Peh which was an inspiring and unbelievable success! Following was also the Halacha skits which explained different Halachos in humorous ways!

One of the highlights of bog war in general is the plays. The staff and campers together put tireless effort in preparing everything, and the Achdus is amazing! This is an opportunity when everyone talents are used to the max! Each teams play came out amazing, explaining each Toichen beautifully, and providing great lessons!

As Bog war came to an end, all could say that with the amount of effort, fun, care, and work put into it,  everyone came out inspired, and driven to do better! Just another Bog war in CGI!

Firework Show!

It seemed to be a regular night. It was right after visiting day, and all the campers where exhausted and ready to go to bed. But since we are CGI, and we are the most exciting camp in the world, we decided to have a late night surprise firework show. Now, most campers where waiting for the simple dollar store papers that are set off and are pretty cool. But no. The sky lit up in an uproarious firework show, that made the campers cheer from beginning to end, ‘More! More! More!’ It was an incredible night, an unbelievable show, and a great way to start off this last week of camp because rumor has it that its going to wild!

Sixth Grade Bonfire!

Sixth grade is lucky once again! Their Mivtza is rolling with a smashing success! Thursday was an unbelievable BBQ, and the campers had hotdogs and hamburgers, and relaxed with the unbeatable weather. As the sun went down, the bonfire was lit, and marshmallows where handed out. Each camper was able to roast his own marshmallows as everyone sang classic cam songs. It was so inspiring to see the involvement of each camper until late that night.

NOD Skating Trip!

 

NOD’s trip this past week was like no other! In fact what they where waring to was original as well. Dressed up in awesome costumes, and lots of smiles they headed of to the skating rink. So many games where played as the music was blasting, and the lights were flashing, not to mention NOD’s amazing energy! There was a grand game of limbo led by our dear night activity director Zeesh, as well as a game of tag and pushups on roller skates?????

The trip was a smashing success, and ended with some delicious snacks and some cold drinks which was great during the outdoor heatwave. Once again, we had another spectacular trip in CGI!
