Seriously. As someone who knows BY camps as well as Camp Moshava, I did a double take.

A walk taken on shabbos off camp property down the country road.

ETA and that's when you chant
"a car, a car, a C-A-R.
If you wanna get hit
Just stay where you are"

Why would you go off camp property on Shabbos? Then you have Eruv issues if you want a water bottle or gum, or to adjust a pony holder....

You can adjust a pony holder out of erev if you stand in one place.
Other than that we couldn’t take anything along.
Everyone would tie their watches around the front camp gate entrance.

In my day most of the campers did not come from an area that an eruv was a way of life so that's no big deal.

And what are water bottles???

LOL

I don’t think anyone in here went with me to camp but I’ll give it a try:

“Make a set two of a kind,
Your gonna get a ______ mind”

And

“Come and catch a summer fever
The sky is blue the grass is greener
Cuz here in _______ it’s always sunny
Sunny side up”

Shabbos chain from the makheila to the dinning room and whoever gets to hold the havdala candle was super special!

In a different camp we went On a road Trip and we couldn’t find bathrooms for hours. Finally the bus driver pulled over near a corn field and we all found our own corner. The rest of the ride we asked each other “why is the corn yellow?”

I have a list of memories but let’s see if anyone else can think of which camps I’m talking about...

Oh, one last memory (not Fay-Gah or Mishkon/Sternberg)

Getting cherry twinpop ices on Shabbos that were distributed outside, behind the kitchen. IIRC you were only allowed one stick of the twin so you had to show up with the buddy you'd be sharing with. The lucky girl got the wrapper...

I know you said not Sternberg but you reminded me anyway. We also go cherry twin pops for oneg, and I think we had to split them. The basketball court was a red, sticky mess Shabbos afternoon...

Til today the smell of patchouli reminds me of family camp

Staying up all night to keep the fire going

Human assembly line to pass the sleeping bags over the TMR

The article in mishpacha over Yom Tov about federation cookies also triggered many memories

I can't believe that I read the words of the color war song and was able to remember the tune and sing it. I probably haven't sung that song since camp. Thanks for the memories!!

Another Sternberg alum here!

Sternberg you're the best place to be
You make me happy to be me
Hello Sternberg sunshine
Goodbye bluuuuuuues

Anyone from my era (90s) remember this color war song? (Not sure I have it entirely correct)

Follow me now, let me show you the way
Through the whispering trees as the sun sheds its rays
King of the forest with his roar with his might
His kingdom now gathers, all at once they unite
For it's dark and it's lonely and the fear grows inside
Each day we're challenged anew
And the dreams that we hope for, the longing the fear
Hash-m calls His nation, My children come here
Acharei Hash-m, we'll answer we'll come to you
Yelchu k'aryeh yishai
Find your strength find your answer
.....

My chassidish camp rented out a water park with lots of Jewish camps. I don't remember the rides I went on, the only thing that stuck with me was, "Camp Emuna, Bnos Yaakov Yehuda"!

Purple, that was Bnos, for many years- a contest in which kids had to come up with creative captions for intriguing pictures.

How about these?

Consideration, friendliness, working together
That's the way we do things here in any kind of weather.
