The week began with the summer’s first Kluger game-show, where the campers compete with the knowledge they acquired in learning class, in a fun and interactive manner.
Sunday’s events also included the trips for the winners of Shabbos competition and for the 7th grade Bochurim who’ve memorized a designated quota of Tanya B’al Peh over Shabbos. During which the entire Mesivta division went on a White-Water Rafting trip and held their first celebration event for the Bochurim who excelled in the Mivtza titled “Bishvili Nivra Ha’olam.” It was also the day that the waterfront boating activities began for all divisions, on camp’s very own lake. These boating activities are available to all campers every day.
Sunday evening, the Siyum Harambam event took place for all the divisions of camp, on the expansive outdoor stage on camp grounds. Camp Mashpia, Rabbi Shmuly Avtzon, and the head staff addressed the campers on the significance and importance of the Rebbe’s instruction to unite through the study of the daily Rambam and many campers have joined the new Rambam cycle.
