It’s been a memorable and mitzvah-filled Shabbat here at Micah. Last night, we gathered in the outdoor chapel for our weekly Erev Shabbat service. We sang, we danced, and we reflected on the past week. Rabbi Lipof taught us a valuable lesson of letting go of the past and forgiving those around us.
On Saturday, we took part in our annual Mark’s Mitzvah Morning. In honor of his upcoming birthday, the entire camp participated in mitzvah projects to better the community. Together, we baked 600 cookies for a local soup kitchen and the Bridgton Police and Fire Departments. Campers made beautiful custom puzzles and cards for sick children at the Bridgton Hospital. We made dog biscuits for a local animal shelter, soup jars and coloring books to donate, and more. Mark was honored to have so much good done for the world in his honor. We’re all looking forward to celebrating his birthday throughout the coming week!
This afternoon, campers were entertained by their peers at our much anticipated Talent Show! We had to pick our chins up off the floor as we were dazzled by surprise talents! As the day came to a close with our weekly cookout and campfire (although wet this week), it’s hard to believe that just a week from tonight, we’ll be saying goodnight to our first session friends for the last time this summer.
