First day of Peulot!

Every normal day at camp, the kids will go to what we refer to around camp as “Pish”. This nice little abbreviation stands for the hebrew words “peulat shichva”. This is an activity that will be done with only a chanich’s (camper’s) age group and will a vast majority of the time be educational. These educational themes are laid out by the summer’s chinuch (educational director) who this year is Jeremy Oziel. Peulot often relate to the pillars of Habonim Dror which include Judaism, Actualization, Social Justice, Socialism, and Zionism.

The Bonim (entering 9th grade) peulah involved moving around in two circles with different conversation topics between each couple.

The amelim (entering 4th/5th grade) made mini skits with a partner in order to demonstrate different machaneh (camp) rules.

Everyday, Pish will be held late in the morning between 10:40 and 12:10, but as the first day is unique, today it was held between 5:00 and 6:00. Also due to the fact that the first day is like none other, these peulot (activities) were largely focused on ice breakers between the chanichim, learning the rules of machaneh (camp), and maybe even learning some cheers for after meals!
