JULIE’S PROGRAM CORNER
Hi everyone! The camps at BCMH are in full swing and are AMAZING!!! The campers (counselors and CIT’s too) are having a blast and the weeks are whizzing by so quickly.
Quick note: We are not hosting our annual bbq this year (originally scheduled for August 10th) b/c we have decided to join forces with SPARK’s event on August 31st! Details of this fabulous jewishmusicpalooza will be pouring out in the next few weeks. BCMH will have their own booth and there will be lots of fun things for the entire family plus Kosher Food!
Wishing everyone an awesome Shabbos!
