First Full Day at CLTC 1

Posted on 06/12/2014 @ 12:30 AM

The first full day at Camp Beber flew by. After an exciting night unpacking and bonding with roommates, the morning crept up on everyone. The day began with CLTC 1's first communal shacharit, or morning prayer. Participants were introduced to the prayer experience. Then, chapters met to discuss board positions and election procedures. It was fun for each mock chapter to start brainstorming chapter names. Each of CLTC 1's rotation groups explored three different programs. In public speaking, Jordyn Matez from Gold Coast Region presented her speech on why Peter Pan was her favorite movie, while Robin Du from Cotton States Region explained the best vacation he had been on. In the Jewish leadership program, CLTC 1 participants were encouraged to think out of their comfort zones and identified which Jewish leaders matched their personalities. Moreover, the "Why are you here?" discussion session set the tone of CLTC and provided participants with everything they need to know about the following days. Grilled cheese and tomato soup for lunch was a hit. After the meal, everyone enjoyed free time with new friends, playing basketball, talking in dorms, eating snacks, and jamming to song sessions. After dinner, each mock chapter strengthened their ability to work as a team through a skill building activity involving a maze. The night closed with boys and girls splitting up to learn about the BBG and AZA history and principles. Everyone is excited for another day at CLTC 1 tomorrow!

Airport Arrivals

Posted on 06/11/2014 @ 12:45 AM

Day 1. The legendary airport pickup began at the early hour of 9 AM and lasted all the way until 5 PM. With lots of coffee, Quiznos, and the other various eating selections, the teens began their bonding adventure waiting as each teen rolled into the Milwaukee airport. Some people walked to sign in with a bright and jolly face, some came looking tired from a lack of sleep, and some arrived with their bags dragging on the ground behind them. Nonetheless, the pile of luggage slowly rose as the amount of friendships grew within the tiny quarters of the airport. After all the teens arrived, the anticipated moment began - our drive to Camp Beber. After the buses pulled in onto the gravel road and all the teens witnessed the campus for the first time, everyone walked into the gym for the beginning of the journey and got to meet the leadership staff. Hungry from a long day at the airport, nobody had any problem indulging themselves with delicious ziti and garlic bread. Following their first CLTC birkat ha'mazon, the teens had the chance to take a tour of their home for the next 12 days. The days to come will include spending quality time learning in their chapters with which they had the opportunity to meet after dinner. Along with some incredible and motivating words from Sherrie Stalarow, many icebreaker games led to fun interaction and a great conclusion to the night. Moreover, with the name games well underway, our CLTC community is growing one day at a time. Tune in tomorrow...
