Chugim (Interest Groups)!

Chugim (interest groups) are a time of the day that we have everyday at machaneh (camp) except for on Saturdays. The activities are ones that stay stagnant for the whole summer with chanichim (campers) signing up for the ones they wish to be a part of in the beginning of the summer and sticking with it for the entire four week session.

The activites can range from Mosh on Broadway which has been preparing a show for the last Saturday of camp to Mosh softball to aerobics. The time of the day is viewed by the kids as one of the most exciting and fun ones as they look forward to it throughout the whole day.

Chug "journal junkies" goes around with journals and either writes about how they're feeling with creative stories or draws pictures of scenic Mosh.

  1. The TV show “Whose Line Is It” was originally created by two English TV producers named Dan Patterson and Mark Leveson. They were my madrichim at Habonim-Dror in London when I was a kid. They modeled the TV show after the games that we used to play at Habonim.
