These small but mighty individuals set up plastic bowling pins in their bunks, and took turns trying to knock down as many pins as they could. The campers had a lot of fun going bowling for Ohel, and their excellent bowling skills helped raise money for Camp Kaylie scholarships. It was explained to the kids that this money would go toward helping children with disabilities enjoy the same fun summer camp experience that they get to enjoy.
Camp Director Jill Smulevitz appreciated the opportunity to have her kids participate in this worthy cause, in a way that they were able to both enjoy and understand. She said about the program, “You are never too young to learn about tzedakah and create an avenue of fun to engage children and families in this tremendous mitzvah.”
Ohel thanks Ruach and their many supporters for participating in this camp chesed program, as Ohel could not continue the incredible work that it does without community partners and generous donors.
