In most camps, the day after Color War is a lazy day, with not much going on. But Camp Gan Yisroel-NY isn’t “most camps,” and the day after Color War was far from lazy. Early in the morning came the exciting announcement that the grand trip would be taking place that very day, and grand it was.
Right after Shacharis and breakfast, the campers and staff boarded luxurious coach busses for a comfortable ride to Six Flags New England. While on a typical day the lines can stretch for hours, this was not the case here, since the park was privately rented – and the campers wasted very little time waiting in line.
The lines were short, the rides exciting and the weather was great despite gloomy forecasts. Basketballs and stuffed toys were won, pesukim recited, and cheers sung.
After a long and enjoyable day, a picnic supper was enjoyed, the busses boarded, and the way back was filled with the exciting recounting of the incredible times everyone had.
