Starfish Shout-out!

Shabbat Shalom!

After two days of rain, we woke up to a chilly morning that ended up turning into a gorgeous day! We started a new values-based initiative this summer called Starfish.

S- Sensitivity

T- Trustworthiness


R- Respect

F- Friendship




We put “Starfish Shoutout” boxes in each dining room where staff and campers can write a shoutout to someone who exhibited one of those values. Our boxes are overflowing with boxes of kindness!

Today’s Oneg theme was Heroes. Campers were encouraged to create heroes with super powers that could help others. Many of them had Starfish Value powers! We also hid many small, plastic starfish around camp with one of the Starfish letters on it. Campers were encouraged to find the starfish and share what the found value meant. Then they hid the starfish for another camper to find. It has been a positive and fun experience so far. Tune in for more Starfish news soon!

We have a camp-wide Havdallah tonight followed by the FIREWORKS!!! Can’t wait for Carnival tomorrow!!!
