Hundreds Attend Dora Golding and Dina Grand Winter Reunions

Who said camp is just about the summer and that memories are sufficient for the rest of the year? This past Sunday, the Camp Dora Golding and Camp Dina spirit was more alive than ever, as hundreds of campers and staff members filled the Bnos Bais Yaacov Hall in Far Rockaway for their 2015 Winter Reunions. Campers came from near and far to relive the extraordinary memories from just a few months ago.

There was laughter and excitement in the air as Camp Dora Golding friends caught up with one another. A video presentation brought camp back to life featuring all the fantastic camp activities, programs and trips. The hall was buzzing from talk of the impressive sports program, thrilling trips, new go-karting track, beautiful camp grounds, color war and zip lining. It was reminiscing at its best. And what better way to get a “taste” of camp than to have the great and magnificent Chef Yo dish up a delicious spread.

A raffle was also held for all present, with grand prize winner Eli Staum of Teaneck receiving the exciting hoverboard and Chaim Friedman from Far Rockaway, the runner up, receiving two NY Knicks tickets. The best proof of the reunion’s success was the conversations about plans for next summer, now less than seven months away. In the end, there were many teary goodbyes and promises to keep in touch.

“Thank you CDG for organizing such a great night,” said one eighth grader. “I’ve been waiting to see my friends since the last day of camp, and tonight I felt as if I were back in camp all over again. I’m already counting the days until next summer!”

Earlier in the day, Camp Dina had held their Winter Reunion. Campers and staff reminisced over the busy happenings of this past summer, with memories of sports, songs, dance, cooking, zip lining and trips, all filling the Bnos Bais Yaacov Hall. The girls enjoyed an astonishing show of magic and illusion by world-renown illusionist, Elliot Zimmet, who had everyone on the edge of their seats.

“Elliot’s tricks were amazing and it was even more fun watching it with all my camp friends,” said one third grader.

A reminiscent video presentation was shown with many smiling faces, proof of the fabulous time had at Camp Dina. The girls relived the wonderful experiences and beautiful friendships made, with many campers wishing next summer was already upon us. A raffle was also held with Avigail Zupnick from Teaneck winning the season’s must-have hoverboard.

Camp Dora Golding and Camp Dina both provide campers with action-packed, magic-filled summer experiences—aiming to be “The Place to Be” next summer.
