Three Days in the Life of a Kaylie Camper

“Kaylie Kids” got off to an exciting start on Monday, enjoying a day filled with enthralling activities at a camp bursting at the seams with excitement and fun.

Campers arriving from Teaneck, The Five Towns and beyond, were warmly welcomed by their counselors, head staff and an ice cream party. Thereafter, campers checked into their bunks, unpacked and got ready for the exciting days ahead.

During their stay, campers enjoyed archery, woodworking, go-karts, ziplining, horseback riding, boating and intense sports on the spacious campus. “Boating is my favorite part of camp,” said Gabe Mellman. “I had a great time on the lake.” “It was a lot of fun climbing and ziplining by the ropes course and rock climbing activity,” said Yaakov Lubetsky. Eli Eisenberg described that “it was fun to have the wind burst into our face.”

Sports games were also a part of the offerings and Hillel Fried noticed where he was playing: “The gym here is so nice.”

Day 1 included a camp-wide carnival for the visiting campers—having a great time on the myriad of attractions with friends. “The carnival was my favorite part of the day,” said Yoni Taragin. “I liked the giant water slide because it was humongous and a lot of fun to go down!” A foam pit, bubble ball race, cotton candy and basketball challenge were also part of the fun.

To top off the first day, campers had a blast at the late night swim activity, enjoying the new Jaffa Family pool. “Night swim was my favorite part of the day,” said Dov Klahr. “The new water slide was a lot of fun.”

Campers started off Day 2 with davening and chinuch, followed by all the activities the camp has to offer.

The go-kart track and woodworking were some popular activities during the trial stay. Binyamin Schienfeld liked woodworking best and built his very own mini-gumball machine during the activity. “Kaylie Kids is amazing,’’ exclaimed Akiva Fried. “The activities are so much fun.”

Kaylie Kids parents Lisa and Aaron from Maryland remarked that “Gabriel came home so excited, and we heard all the details about the amazing activities, the ruach, the beauty of the camp and mostly the comradery amongst the boys. Gabriel is not a New Yorker, but he felt welcomed and part of the group. The counselors were attentive, he was comfortable in the camp and overall told us what a great time he had. We look forward to his attending Camp Kaylie next summer.”

Kaylie Kids is a great way for prospective campers and their families to experience all that Camp Kaylie has to offer. The goal is to provide children with a fabulous time with sensitivity to the fact that this is probably his/her first overnight stay.
