Dear COLlive readers,
I am posting this video to show everyone what beautiful inclusion Bnos Menachem Day Camp in Crown Heights had this summer.
It was my daughter Mussia’s first time in a new camp, with all new girls, and the counselors did an outstanding job in showing what the essence of inclusion is.
When I thanked the counselor, she mentioned that she herself had a friend in her class who used a walker and she was included in everything.
Specifically, when it came to dance in production, they always made sure the dance was mostly with their hands instead of their feet to include her friend.
So, she said, she paid it forward in the biggest lesson she can teach her campers.
What a beautiful lesson, and how amazing it is that she is teaching the next generation, what someone taught her!
Many thanks to the incredible counselors and staff and campers in her camp. We’ll always remember this!
Special thanks to the director Dini Simons, the production head Fruma Herscovic, as well as her counselors Tsippy Brasilera, Rochel Leah Mizrahi and Mushky Turk for teaching the campers such beautiful values.
