Just back from a great week literally getting my feet wet at URJ Camp George, our reform Jewish summer camp. Instead of going for a group shot, I wandered around the pre-shabbat-walk huddle and participated with other campers in marveling at how well everyone cleans up for Shabbat. I know I only found about half of our campers and staff during my wander. Many more were eating doughnuts and chatting about the week.
The first week of camp Rabbi Splansky was with our kids, joining me for my week were members and educators Eric Petersiel of the Leo Baeck Day School and our teacher Elana Paice Lidsky, and this week our Director of Youth Engagement Lisa Isen Baumal is spending time and teaching our campers.
