My First Year2Ruth D., Age 9
Tribe of Reuben

This was my first year at Camp Gilgal. It was very exciting. It was hard at first but then it started getting easier, and I had a lot of fun. I got to go to the petting zoo and hold the bunnies as well as pet some sheep. I also went swimming where we looked for shells in the water and played in the sand. My second time swimming I went paddle boarding with my friends. We also played a lot of field games like Wells Fargo and Capture the Degel. I also really liked the activities. I was part of Forest Fairies where we got to make challah for Shabbat. We also built fairy houses out of garden pots and made glittery decorations. I also got to meet a lot of new people and make a bunch of new friends. I can’t wait to come back next year!
