Friday Costume Ideas 2017

Friday at Camp Shelanu is costume day. Campers and staff dress up in costumes for each theme week of camp. While dress up is part of our camp culture, it is not at all required for campers. Costumes can be simple or elaborate. We see a wide range of dress-up at camp, so whatever you come up with is great! It is also okay to not participate if dressing up is not your kid’s idea of fun. We will also be making crafts each week that kids can use for costume day. Check out the guide above for inspiration!

Shabbat Blessings

Every Friday campers celebrate shabbat (the sabbath) by singing songs, giving out awards, and doing blessings over candles, grape juice and challah bread they braided early that day! Here are the words in English and Hebrew!
