In an atmosphere reminiscent to camp, one hundred children from Crown Heights hopped onto a bus for the first official Chayolei Hamelech Reunion.
Prior to their embarking, the campers lined up on President Street and said the twelve pesukim and enjoyed a sing-along. The campers sang enthusiastically as the bus rolled on its way to the Gil Hodges Bowling Alley in Mill Basin.
The children enjoyed a game of bowling with their beloved staff, which was followed by a a pizza party and a special video presentation at Chabad of Mill Basin.
To culminate the event, every camper was awarded an exclusive slideshow disc prepared especially for the reunion.
The children sang their way back to Crown Heights and made a deep impression upon all the passers-by.
Although this was the first camp-wide reunion, Chayolei Hamelech held farbrengens for every bunk over Sukkos. In addition, the staff and campers joined forces in the Chayolei Hamelech Sukkah Mobile. A monthly newsletter keeps children and parents updated on all of these peulos and more.
