[ ] 2 JEWISH VALUE GIVEAWAYS A BIG HIT There is a saying that "You are what You Eat." If Camp Operations Co-Director Samantha Goodman has her way the expression might be changed to "You are What You Wear." Every spring Samantha and other JCC camp staff head to Atlantic City for a four day Camp conference sponsored by the American Camping Association which is the largest gathering of camp professionals in the world. This spring, while walking through the Exhibit Hall, Samantha spotted a vendor who sold bead band bracelets that could be customized. She immediately realized that this was the perfect idea for our Jewish value giveaways. Over the course of the summer, campers will receive 4 two sided bead band bracelets featuring each of our weekly Jewish values. Samantha hopes that the wearing of these bead band bracelets will inspire campers to act upon these values in their daily lives. Already campers and counselors can be seen throughout the camp wearing the rst of their four bead band bracelets. IT IS BETTER TO GIVE THAN RECEIVE There is a Jewish folk saying that G-d looks at a person's heart before looking at a person's brain. Motivated by his caring heart one of our camper's used his brains to make a big difference. Maccabiah camper Eitan HaLevi spent last Sunday at his father's gas station playing Blues music on his guitar and asking customers to make a donation to Breast Cancer research. By day's end he had raised more than $50. Good Job Eitan! THE DREAM OF ONE TEAM, THE HEARTBEAT OF MILLIONS World Cup mania was on full display this week as JCC campers and staff of Argentinean descent showed their pride in their countrymen's performance in the World Cup. The team came up a little short in its bid for a championship but they earned the respect of the world for their tenacious play. Pictured are counselor Julian Azar, and campers Gabriel Garcia and Andrew Diaz.
