We were able to finish strong over the last two days of Camp Kesher!
We tie-dyed our Camp Kesher t-shirts, had an epic water balloon and cornstarch battle, had a blast on the 25-foot slip-n-slide, and memorized Bible verses.
There were plenty of color war activities as well, including our team mural contest, song contest, and the annual steeple chase relay race. This race had our campers running across the campground, climbing the rockwall, swimming through the pool, hitting five volleyball aces, hitting targets with nerf dart guns, canoeing, answering Hebrew and Yiddish questions, tossing eggs, and so much more. The lead changed four times throughout the race, and the red team proved victorious in the end! While the competition was intense, we also awarded campers for acts of kindness, encouragement, and humility during the race.
We also had a great time celebrating Shabbat! All of our campers made challah on Friday morning, which we enjoyed during our Erev Shabbat service. We had two great messages during our Shabbat Mishkan times. Our teacher on Friday night emphasized the importance of true obedience to God and His love for us as demonstrated through Yeshua. On Shabbat morning we had a Torah service and one of our camp directors shared an important message on the Gospel in Nehemiah.
We closed out camp on Saturday night with fun dancing, and then on Sunday morning we said our farewells until next year!
We are all so grateful for your prayers throughout the week, and for God’s provision. May the seeds that were planted grow and bear fruit, and may the relationships forged last a lifetime!
