Camp Ramah “Sleep-Under”

Posted on January 29, 2016

A snapshot/recap of the sleep under at Temple Israel last weekend:

This Sunday I got to spend the evening with some 4th and 5th graders, some of the magic of Ramah into our everyday lives. We began by creating an art project, personal camp-fires, out of recycled materials. This was especially relevant because it was the holiday of Tu Bishvat, and we discussed the importance of taking care of the earth. 
After having fun decorating our projects, we played numerous ice breakers, and got to know each other. We also played a few rounds of different camp sports, suc has a modified beach volleyball. After this we participated in a game called “constellations” where everyone walks around, finds a place in the room, and one person from each team has to identify what constellation everyone could create, and tell the group a story about it. In our same teams we played camp-fire games, like a song game, while eating S’mores.
It was a fun and exciting way to spend the evening, and brought a little bit of summer camp fun into a regular Sunday
