Page 13-THE NEWS-August, 1988 Camp Gan Israel Was Bigger and Better This Year Campers at Camp Gan Is rael were treated to a fantastic camp season this summer. A host of new exciting activities was added to the camp sched ule. This year also saw more than 80 children registered in the three-week camp. Mariashi Groner, administrator at Lubavitch, attributes the suc cess to the qualit}' program ming and exciting field trips. should also mention that our specially trained coun selors are totally devoted to the children and their needs,” Mariashi said. A tiny tots group was also introduced this year under the direction of Debbi Maslov. The children used the oppor tunity to leam about Judaism in a fun and exciting way. Each morning exercise was done to the tunes of Jewish songs. The camp was divided into four groups (in addition to the tiny tots). The groups were identified by names which were indicative of Jewish themes: Torah, Tzedakah, Mezuzah and Shabbas. Each group was assigned a van with the group’s name and they learned how to relate their name with many Jewish ideas. Camp activities included sports, swimming, boating, horseback riding, cookouts and many field trips. Many places were visited: Asheboro Zoo, Carowinds, Energy Ex- plorium. Discovery Place and Buffalo Ranch. Lunch was served daily at the Chabad House during which the children learned new Jewish songs and participated in fun games. Creative work by the campers, part of the special arts and crafts pro jects, adorned the dining hall. The children also baked their own challah for Shabbat and learned how to separate the challah dough with its special blessing. The counselors, a major part of the success of the camp, are students at the Beth Rivkah Teachers Seminary in Brook- 13m. It is a highly acclaimed school under the auspices of Lubavitch in New York. On the last day of camp, a special banquet was held, dur ing which each camper re ceived a gift. The Chabad House was decorated in a festive manner with colorful balloons and streamers. The biggest surprise came to Yossi and Mariashi Groner when they were presented with a gold-plated plaque containing the signatures of all the campers and staff expressing thanks for a wonderfiil camp. A special thank you goes to Elizabeth and Walter Klein and Mary and Simon Wo- jnowich for sharing their beautiful pools with the campers. •*4 So many campers — it was hard to get them all to line up and smile for the camera.
