CLTC 7, day 6
Posted on 07/24/2016 @ 08:30 PM
Good evening from CLTC 7! 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 white (France). 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:
"I'm really enjoying Maccabia at CLTC. It's fun to be competitive, but I also like how Maccabia is more about having fun, growing friendships, and becoming leaders." -Brad Gallop, Kentucky Indiana Ohio Region.
"Maccabia has been a really fun way to meet new people and become stronger leaders, while participating in super fun competitions." -Julie Grossman, Rocky Mountain Region.
"Team spirit has been my favourite part of Maccabia so far. I've been cheering all day and my voice is almost gone!" -Naama Rosen, Southern Region: Dixie Council.
"Today has been such a great day. From the competitions, to spirit and sportsmanship, everything has been amazing. It was an incredible learning experience to be a team captain, and I had so much fun." -AJ Katzenstein, Great Midwest Region.
"I'm so happy that we got to do Maccabia. My team got to represent Bulgaria which was exciting, and my voice is almost gone from cheering so loud!" -Jamie Friedman, Eastern Region.
We can't wait to finish off the night with more exciting activities!
