2012 Electives

Posted by: Ken Kaus on Tuesday, February 7, 2012 at 1:30:00 pm


It’s February and instead of enduring the cold temperatures, bouts of cabin fever and pining for the summer sun, we have been treated to unseasonably warm weather making us wish even more for the fun of summer. 

Here at Camp Ruach, we have been hard at work planning for all that summer fun and we want to give you a taste of some the elective activities.

Coming back by popular demand, we have “Cake Wars”.  Last year we ran this for the first time and the kids loved it.  If you’re not familiar with the popular show on TV’s the Food Network, the idea is simple.  The kids bake, design and decorate cakes based on themes such as “Fun at Camp”.

Also back this year is “Mad Science” which brings hands on entertaining and educational science experiments. Launching rockets, making slime and even learn how bugs see, fly and camouflage themselves is just the start.  Check them out on at

We have some new electives coming too.  The “American Girl” Scrapbook Jewelry Making will offer girls the chance to turn scrapbook supplies into super accessories! Girls will be able to make necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and more.

We will also be offering Skateboarding, Candy Making and astounding Sand Art Crafts.

Finally, building on the fun of last year’s camp show, we are proud to announce this year’s show, Willy Wonka Jr. Keep watching your mail, auditions for the show happen in June.

I hope you are starting to get excited for the summer.  What are you most looking forward to this summer? Comment on this blog.

Next time we will tell you about some of the trips for Road Rulz and Tzahov.
