Yosef Chaim’s Winter Camp

Shira Yehudit Djalilmand

“Oy! What am I going to do with you children all winter!” Ima wondered. It was a regular autumn late afternoon. It was raining, and already dark, and we were all at home, bored and restless. I was reading a comic book for about the 20th time, the girls were playing with their dollhouse for about the 20th time, and Yaakov Yisrael and Or Elya were fighting over whose turn it was with the racing car — for about the 20th time too!

 

Mining for Gold

Rachel Stein

“Nachy, I can hardly wait to mine some real gold. Think we’ll get rich?” Sruli turned to his friend who was bumping up and down alongside of him in the large yellow camp bus. “Aw, wake up, Sruli! You’re dreaming! This is just for fun, like any other fun stuff they plan in camp. You’re not gonna get rich from a few gold rocks.”
