We can’t believe that today marks two weeks of being at camp! Campers and staff alike are so excited to be back at their home-away-from-home, and campers are building friendships and memories all around camp. Our campers started the summer getting to know their bunk mates and traveling around to activities with other campers in their respective units. After they finalized their individualized schedules, campers are now out and about at activities that they have personally selected. 

For the first trip day, the entire camp bounced around at Urban Air before going back to camp for the first Timber/Summit Dance of the summer and Critter and Prowler Unit nights. 

Camp Micah also celebrated a summer Chanukah with several campers dressed up as Menorahs, dreidels, and more. The kitchen prepared amazing potato latkes and each table was covered in its fair share of chocolate gelt. 

For our second theme dinner, Camp Micah chowed down on yummy chicken wings and sang and danced to Independence Day-themed songs. 

How could we forget about our first Friday night service and Saturday Shabbat? Rabbi Lipof’s story included punchlines, such as “put it down” and “forget about it”, to instill the importance of not sweating the small things and enjoying every possible moment at camp. 

Yesterday, Camp Micah held a successful 4th of July Carnival, where campers slid down water slides, got their faces and nails painted, enjoyed cotton candy and popcorn, dunked their counselors in the dunk tank, and participated in several other carnival activities. 

Today, Camp Micah participated in its first inter camp since 2019! Camp Micah’s U13 Sebago Basketball team was very excited to play against Mataponi. The team had tons of fun, showed lots of spirit, played hard, and embodied the Micah philosophy. Unfortunately, the game ended in a loss for Micah but a win for healthy and exciting competition. 

After lunch, the CIT’s fooled the entire camp with a fake Color War break, consisting of a caged tiger (a CIT dressed in a Tigger costume) and circus theme. The entire camp ran to the circus tent on the softball field, and when the tiger was finally revealed, he was holding a sign that read, “FAKE”. You could feel the excitement in the room and the fake break only built more anticipation for the real break coming soon… 

Until next time, may your children enjoy their next meal, may happy feelings be all that we feel, and may the next Color War break be real!
