It's been wild and crazy at times, but overall the kids had a great time, growing in knowledge and spirit every day.
A week ago I could barely hear them singing during lunchtime ruach. Today they carried the melodies themselves and danced with delight.
This Shabbat will also mark the end of my sixth -- and final -- Incredible June, the ast summer I'll serve MJ Camp as Spiritual Life DIrector and Music Specialist. I've had an amazing time, but I am ready to let a younger person take on these tasks. I hope to be able to return to B'nai Jehudah now and then as a Shabbat guest artist and guest educator over long weekends, but this is my last full-on camp trip with this sweet community.
I am grateful for all that I've learned from my colleagues and especially from the campers. And I know that I will treasure the memories of my time working at the best Jewish day camp in the universe for a long time to come.
Thanks, MJ Camp! It's been an amazing ride.
