CLTC 5, day 6
Posted on 07/10/2016 @ 08:15 PM
Good evening from CLTC 5! Today, everyone was in for a huge surprise when the Maccabia games was announced! Teens were split into four teams: green (Ireland), red (Bulgaria), blue (Argentina), and yellow (Belgium). Each country that was represented is partnered with BBYO on an international level. Through a series of competitions including trivia, Israeli cooking, silent lunch "Shoe Golf", and an Amazing Race, teams competed for points. However, winning the challenges isn't the only way to earn points for your team- team spirit also counts! Later this evening, teams will be competing in a lip sync battle. Take a look at what teens have to say about Maccabia thus far:
"The amount of teamwork that I saw today was inspiring. It was really an unforgettable experience." -Lily Kollin, Michigan Region.
"Maccabia created the opportunity for us to have fun, and bond with our friends in a different way!" -Madeline Quinn, Greater Jersey Hudson River Region.
"Today I learned the value of teamwork and team spirit! I had so much fun cheering and putting everything I had into the competitions." -Olivia Nave, Michigan Region.
"I'm so happy that I had the chance to be one of the Green Team captains! Even though we were competing against each other, we also cheered the other teams on and showed great teamwork." -Sydney Kleinerman, Wisconsin Region.
