The Tzeirei HaShluchim West Coast Winter Boys Camp has concluded an amazing eight, fun-packed days of chayus, chassidishkeit and excitement.
Shluchim’s children from across the West Coast have come together for eight days of fun and friendship in a chassidishe atmosphere. Most of these children live out of established Jewish communities and this unique camp of chassidshkeit and excitement gives them a special opportunity to enjoy what many other Jewish children take for granted.
Nestled in the Verdugo Mountains of Glendale, California, the 113 acre camp affords an amazing experience with beautiful mountain views, hiking trails, archery, sports fields, outdoor amphitheaters and much more. In addition to all the on-site activities, the children went bowling, on a grand trip to Six Flags Magic Mountain, roller skating and more.
On one of the evenings, the children were treated to a very special Kumzitz with songs, marshmallows and great spirit led by Rabbi Shmuel Schlanger Shliach to Bakersfield, California and a parent of children in the camp.
The exceptional staff, led by head-counselor Mendel Undsdorfer provide round-the clock chassidishe warmth and a positive environment for these precious children. The camp is directed by Rabbi Zalmy and Shterna Kudan and Rabbi Mendel and Rochel Loschak.
This camp is organized and run by Shluchim for Shluchim. It was supported by many generous individuals and sponsors including funding from several organizations such as Merkos 302 and the Meromim Fund.
The executive committee overseeing the camps funding and operations are California Shluchim Rabbis Simcha Backman, Shlomo Bistrisky, Nachman Abend and Yisroel Levine.
The Tzeirei HaShluchos West Coast Winter Girls Camp began on Monday and will be equally exciting – “if not more,” organizers say.
