Our Rosh, Naomi, was out and about this Tiyul with the Amelimot! We hit the trails at Fort Custer State Recreational Park, about halfway between Kalamazoo and Battle Creek.
We started with a nice canoe ride around an island at the lake followed by some last minute swimming in our clothes and a picnic.
We then found our campsite and relaxed a bit before setting up our ohelim (tents). We ran int o a slight weather issue with some rain, but that made roasting hot dogs in the fire even more fun.
Everyone had a great time and many s'mores were had. The next day we headed back to three rivers and spent some time playing in the playground of a local park and made some lunch.
Despite the rain, and a chanicha sticking her knew into a sandwich on the ground, and mosquito bites everywhere, it was a successful and memorable tiylul for all.
They had so much fun they forgot they even had the camper camera with them!
(true confession: our camper camera was not working too well so our photos are limited)
