Posted on July 13, 2010

It was a bitter sweet morning.  All of our chalutzim have safely left the Chava.  Many are arriving at the airport as I type this, others are already at their homes in Denver.  It was a wonderful session, filled with growth and adventure, but it is also sad to see this empty camp without our Continue Reading »

I cannot believe it has been a week since I wrote the last blog post.  What a week it has been.  Last Monday morning all of our chalutzim left for their five day excursions.  We sent out five separate groups on excursions.  Two groups went hiking in the nearby Lost Creek Wilderness, where they experienced Continue Reading »

Wow what a few hours!  Our last trip arrived back in camp about 45 minutes ago.  Everyone had an amazing time.  There were smiles, squeals of delight and all sorts of banter about the experiences they just had.  Most chalutzim have headed to the showers to clean up and get ready for shabbat.   I Continue Reading »
