RLTC 2010:

MTv (My Teen Voice) Recap

What a great weekend!

It has almost been a month since about 60 teens came together at Ranch Camp.  This was the perfect weekend to have our first convention of the year up in the high plains-- we could not have asked for better weather!  Our  participants and staff were happy throughout the weekend, and everyone enjoyed programmatic highlights such as


learning about various aspects of leadership, celebrating Shabbat together, becoming "Ninja Acrobats," and inducting our younger members into the region.  Congratulations to Marissa Kaufmann and Tucker Robinson on planning a successful RLTC!
