Camp Kaylie Has Memorable Summer

It has been an unbelievable summer in Camp Kaylie. Due to the awesome programming, high-caliber staff, competitive leagues and amazing trips, campers of all abilities have been having the time of their lives. Perhaps one of the most memorable days in Camp Kaylie’s history was on Thursday, June 8, when the camp celebrated “Tnu Kavod L’Torah Day” and enjoyed visits from four very special rabbanim and leaders of the Jewish community: Rav Dovid Cohen, shlita, Rav Reuven Feinstein, shlita, Rav Mordechai Willig, shlita and Rav Moshe Weinberger, shlita. The entire camp welcomed the rabbanim as they entered the campus, and then escorted them to the dining room while singing in unison. Rabbi Aryeh Lebowitz, head of the Kaylie Masmidim program, made a siyum on Masechet Yoma, and everyone enjoyed a delicious seuda. Rav Feinstein then shared words of inspiration, as well as individual brachos, to the Cubs and Cougars (the two younger divisions). Rav Willig spoke to the Teens, and Rav Cohen to the Masmidim and staff.

Rav Weinberger was able to travel around the entire campus and connect with campers of all ages. Rabbi Shalom Rosner, camp manhig ruchani shared: “The Gedolei Yisrael that came today brought an energy that was palpable by all who were there. Every Camp Kaylie camper and staff member were inspired and awed, and will take the experience with them for a very long time.” Rabbi Eli Brazil, camp director, added, “We all know that in Camp Kaylie we take our sports and activities seriously but to have a day like Thursday to show the campers something that truly matters and is everlasting was beyond incredible.”
