At Mosh, we start every day by doing avodah (work) around camp. Mosh is based on kibbutz values and structures, and we believe that all the chanichim (campers), madatzim (counselors in training), and madrichim (counselors) should contribute what they can in order to keep our camp beautiful and running properly. The chanichim can choose between a number of different anafim (jobs) to do around camp.
In Anaf Aruchat Boker (breakfast), kids set up breakfast for the entire machaneh (camp), and then clean up the meal afterwards. This includes wiping down tables, sweeping the chadar (dining hall), and washing dishes.
In Veggie Cutting, chanichim (campers) cut the all vegetables to be used in the salad bar during lunch and dinner.
In Ashpah (trash), the chanichim walk around machaneh (camp) and take out the trash!
Anaf Medurah (bonfire) sends kids into the woods to cut down wood for our weekly bonfire.
We also have Anaf Tzvia, which designs and paints murals around camp. This anaf is also responsible for making decorations to hang around camp during Shabbat.
Meanwhile, in Anaf MLC/Sif, kids sweep and mop both the MLC (the indoor pavilion) and the Sifria (library). They also organize books and costumes in both areas!
During the best anaf, Sababa (sababa means awesome!), kids clean the bathrooms around camp. They sweep, wipe down the sinks, and even clean the toilets.
Lastly, in Anaf Gan (garden), kids plant seeds, weed the garden, and take care of our chickens and goats!
Avodah allows us all to take ownership over Mosh. Everyone contributes to helping camp run smoothly and look beautiful, and we all get to enjoy the benefits. Avodah is a structure that connects everyone, and makes Mosh feel even more like home!
