Who goes on the Sixth Grade retreat?
The Sixth Grade retreat is for Sixth Graders who attend the SHACHARIT Education Program at Temple Shalom or local Jewish day schools. Temple Shalom clergy, the education staff and many of our older teenagers come with us to share the good time! The retreat is a vital part of Bar/Bat Mitzvah preparation and the 6th grade experience at Temple Shalom and we know all of our 6th graders will want to attend.
What are we going to do?
We will have a great time celebrating Shabbat and creating community together. You will hang out with your friends, do some learning related to Bar/Bat Mitzvah, get to know clergy and staff, and have fun! Yummy food from the dining hall at Camp and cake and ice-cream will be involved. If you have allergies let us know.
Will it be fun?
Yes!! Ask the 7th graders! There will be various fun activities along with some serious activities throughout the whole weekend. Games, Olympics, sports, free time, arts and crafts, good snacks and time with friends.
Where do we sleep?
You will sleep in a heated room with your friends in Manor House. Girls and boys will be housed on separate floors with staff nearby and accessible on each floor. Bedtime will be at 10:30 PM each night. You will pick your roommates before the retreat.
