Bonding while Building Rafts and Bonding with Am Yisrael

give July 14, 2014

Today was filled with bonding with each other and Am Yisrael. GIVE first traveled to a beach by the Kineret, where each girl was assigned a group to build rafts out of bamboo sticks, barrels, wood, and ropes. The competition was heated as each group tied together all of their materials to make their raft float. By the end the bonding experience the girls were able to work together in great speed, all while feeling accomplished by the end. They enjoyed time in the water and sun as they ate their lunch that was delivered to us on the beach. Afterwards, the girls were introduced to our cheesed activity that started out on the beach. They wrote letters to soldiers thanking them for all their dedication and work towards our country. Then we went to a supermarket to purchase snacks to give out with our letters. When we came back to our campus we had dinner and then went off to thank our amazing soldiers! The girls loved singing, dancing, and handing out their package they made especially for the soldiers. By the end of the night the chayalim announced to the girls that they truly had made their night and were so appreciative of them taking their time to show their support. NCSY GIVE sends out our warmest wishes that the soldiers should stay safe and see peaceful times.
