Summer-izing…

8/16/19 – Summer-izing…

The saddest day of the summer is upon us…it is time to say so long to BT Camps’ summer of 2019. But in truth, it is the saddest day for all the best of reasons. It gives us time to reflect on the incredible summer that BT Camps and campers have enjoyed – right down to our camp wide Kabbalat Shabbat this afternoon…

Our 2019 season at BT Camps can be simply summarized with one word: Lots!

Lots of fun, lots of friends, lots of skills learned, lots of heat (yep, it did tend to get a bit warm here at times – OK, lots of times!), lots of projects, lots of pride (and ruach!) in our Shabbat celebrations, lots of fun competition (think Color War!), lots of great counselors, lots of exciting programs and activities, lots of sandwich and cat songs (you’ll have to ask your camper to confirm this one!), lots of challah, and the list goes on and on – as there’s lots more…

Of course, there’s lots of appreciation too. Earlier this summer in a previous blog entry we had given our counselors and specialists lots of “props” for being the exceptional folks that they are – all well deserved! We’d be more than remiss if we didn’t also take the time to recognize the exceptionally talented and dedicated BT Camps leadership – Assistant Directors, Unit Heads and Department Heads that have been a key to the great times of this summer. Each and every one of them has given of themself with their boundless energy, commitment and love for this incredible camp, their staff and of course, all they have done for an exceptional group of campers! It takes a team to make this place run as smoothly and successfully as it does…BT Camps takes tremendous pride in our leadership team, they are truly second to none!

While it is sad to say so-long, it is really nice to know summer at BT Camps has been exceptional experience for so many campers. We say thank you to all our families for making BT Camps a part of their camper’s summer of 2019 and we sure hope BT Camp 2020 is in your plans – we’d love to see our campers enjoy all that’s in store for our 78th summer!

In the meantime, you’ve created LOTS of great memories – think about them often during our off season – they are sure to keep you in smiles until next summer!

Shabbat Shalom – here’s hoping you have a great rest of the summer, a wonderful school year and lots of challah!

Campily yours…

Mike
