Surprises Abound at Kallah!
Posted on 07/18/2012 @ 04:40 PM
It has been an eventful day at Kallah; last night participants returned from our exchange with Camp Morasha, Mesora and Moshava (more on that coming soon) to an "ambush" where they were divided into military units and required to discover pieces of intelligence leading to...Maccabiah 2012!
Our teens were divided into six teams and briefed for the following day. We prepared them for a day of competitions, excitement and fun, but what we didn't tell them is that our day would be taking place in Warwick, NY at URJ Kutz Camp!
This morning, we surprised our teens and loaded them on the bus, where we in turn surprised 200+ NFTY teens by arriving to join them for the day. Our six teams combined with theirs and team captains from both camps joined forces for an incredible collaboration.
While the weather has not been so great, teens are dancing, participating in a very serious debate about cereals (our favorite quote so far: "Crunch Berries promote Pluralism because of all the different colors and tastes"), and spending time together.
We'll be back at camp tonight in time to get ready for a low-key day tomorrow, followed by a return visit from our Morasha/Mesora/Moshava friends, and guests for Limmud Kallah on Friday.
So much more to come from us soon, but for now, we're signing off from Warwick to go be with our friends from Kutz!
