During the closing ceremony the Unit Heads and Assistant Unit Heads wrote prayers that they read to each of their units as a way to wrap up the session and send their campers off with a blessing.
As Camp comes to an end, may you take your memories and hold them close. May the new friends you made become even better ones next year. May all the experiences you have had bring a smile to your face. See you next year
Jude & Allison
We had a wonderful summer with you all. We hope you never forget all of the great memories you made this summer. And when you are at home and feeling low we hope you will think of these memoires and smile. Thank you for making this session something never to forget. We wish you all the best and we will see you next summer.

The Torah tells us that when the Israelite left Egpyt and traveled into the desert they had a pillar of fire that traveled over them to protect them day and night. As we head out from the familiarty of our home at camp into the “wilderness” of the rest of the world, we don’t have a fire guiding over us, but we take something else. The memories we make at camp and the friends that we’ve met carry a special weight that will travel home with you. Kohanim, when you think of this summer, think of the 190 other individuals who shared your experiences, your trials and your successes. Let this summer be your pillar of fire and know that you will never walk alone. May god bless you and keep you, amen.
Paul & Goldie
It has been so amazing to watch you grow as a unit, as bunks and as individuals. When you drive through the gates tomorrow, we hope you take the memories and the laughs with you, as well as the lessons. Between the wobble-offs and kafar times we have all discovered a little bit about ourselves. I am so proud to call myself your unit head and I want you to all know you are really attractive.
Kayce & Daniel
Go forth and conquer this year to come. Take what faces you in stride, putting your best foot forward in every situation, taking what you have learned here to show who you will become. When you leave here tomorrow don’t dwell in that “missing” feel instead, take all of those memoires, store them away in a special place in your head and your heart and let them help create who you are.
Madeline & Josh
May the Kibbutzniks be blessed as they go on their way. May they be guided in peace, health and happiness. And let us say rachet! May we be sheltered by the domes and by the wings of Ben and Jerry. May we be kept safe through the storms and remained loved by the counselors. May the word “elephant” affect you and find a way to silence your soul. Mat this be our blessing, everytime we touch. Amen. Hope to see you again- Israel for Avodah…we love you Kibbutz 2012!
Zohar & Josh
May we be blessed as we go on our way. May the friendships created here be the friendships for the future. May we embrace change instead of run from it. May our decisions be guided be our hearts and minds. May we graciously accept the transition from “that is not my job to that is my job”. May we learn to post videos to un Facebook. May this be our blessing, amen.
