As we head into our final Shabbat of first session, I am taking this opportunity to reflect on growth and learning.
For tzevet, we are reaching the halfway point of our summer, but for most of the chanichimot, the end of first session is the end of Tavor for the year.
During intersession, tzevet takes the opportunity to reflect on our summer so far and plan the session moving forward. For our chanichimot who will be heading home on Sunday, it can feel challenging to bring all of the things they learned at camp back with them.
I remember coming home each summer with a drive to connect all of the things I had experienced at Tavor to my community at home.
Camp is often a uniquely empowering time for chanichimot, where they are able to learn through connecting with one another, take ownership over the space they live, and have fun doing it.
Our hope is that chanichimot can bring all of the amazing energy they gained at Tavor back to their communities at home, being the leaders we have watched them become.
Thank you for an incredible first session. It has been an honor to be a part of your children’s lives, and we cannot wait to connect with them again.
