Last night, we learned how to use the starts to find our direction. Today, we learned that, like stars, our friends help us to find direction in our lives. As a result, it is important that we make wise decisions when choosing friends. We learned more about the commonalities between each other through some circle games.
After a short break, we broke out into our cooking and dance groups. The cooking group learned about the traditions of Rosh Hashana and made delicious small honey-apple cakes. The dance group continued to work on their performance for the Thursday morning program and seem to be embracing the challenges.
Then, we hopped on the bus and headed down to Eilat for an afternoon of waters sports! Together, we clung to giant tubs as a motor boat drove us around the Mediterranean Sea. Later, we jumped on a giant, inflatable “banana” with 11 of our friends for another choppy ride on the water. My favorite moment was yelling the Kids4Peace chant at the top of our lungs as we were pulled along by the motor boat. We finished up with kayak rides with the counselors.
Our time in Eilat concluded with dinner and shopping. Groups got to choose how they spent their evening by the beach. Some went to the mall and visited The Gap, while others had fun looking through the outdoor vendors on the boardwalk.
Tonight, the kids enjoyed popcorn and a movie in the outdoor theatre.
