CLTC 8, day 6
Posted on 08/07/2016 @ 08:15 PM
Good evening from CLTC 8! Today, teens were happy to hear that the Maccabia games are back for session 8! 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. Teams were able to compete in many top tier events including trivia, Israeli cooking, silent lunch "Shoe Golf", and an Amazing Race. 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. Having our Maccabia day competition take place during the 2016 Olympic Games helped create a spirited and exciting atmosphere. Take a look at what teens have to say about Maccabia thus far:
"Maccabia has been a great bonding experience with new people who I haven't talked to yet. It also improved bonds with friends I've already made. -Jacob Chimerine, Nassau-Suffolk Region.
"Maccabia rocks! I'm so happy I got to participate, our team is really close!" -Taylor Lansey, Greater Jersey Hudson River Region.
"So far, Maccabia has been amazing. I got to lead a team, and being put in a leadership position helped me learn so much. It's great to be competitive on different teams, but coming together at the end of the day was great!" -Simone Steinberg, Greater Jersey Hudson River Region.
We're excited for the day to continue!
