The walls of a house act as a physical and metaphorical boundary that separates the family (and, in our case, camp community) from the outside world. Within these walls, campers and staff come together to form a tight-knit community, where shared experiences, values, and traditions create a sense of unity. The walls of camp not only protect and provide a place for creativity and independence, but also foster a sense of belonging and camaraderie among campers and staff alike. This is our value of Achdut — and the ability to sing together, play together, and live together is so incredibly special.
At the same time, the walls of a house provide structure and support, just like the people in our lives. Our parents, family, friends, and community provide us with the support we need to get through tough times and celebrate our successes. On this level, we are so unbelievably appreciative of the partnership between camp and parents. This collaboration between summer camp and parents is crucial in building a solid framework for a child’s development and to set them on a path to thrive in both their camp and home environments.
We can’t wait to welcome our parents, and all visitors, to our summer home in less than 48 hours. We have a great day of celebration planned for you — and I look forward to personally greeting you. Until then, enjoy our fifth PreShabbat Video by clicking here.
