Seeing the rav tov thread with 10+ pages, I was wondering how many camp mates I have here. Share your memories!

The carpets on the walls,
The smelly overstuffed couches, a swarm of flies would pop out if you sat down!
Mr Klein's havdala....
Mrs Bukaretzky's kokosh
The indoor pool surrounded with more carpet

Oh god, I thought I was the only amother that went to Viznitz camp!! I can still smell the carpet, eeewwwww.
Were you there in the times of Leah Mermelstein a'h?
Remember the fear and everyone fleeing to their beds and pretending to sleep when Mrs. Berger came?
Mrs. Ungars sharp tongue is still in my bones.

This is fun.
Mrs. Rosenfeld and her surgery (and long stories...)
The bridge...
The elevator that was officially off limits...
And the infamous scary fourth floor...
Should I go on...?

I was in 6th. It was the 12th yr of camp. Shira's theme was a dozen eggs or chickens or something like that.

Yup I remember that. Were the singing counselors Shifra Gitty Rosenbaum and Ruchala Wosner?
Or Blimi Kasten? Yeah I think Stern was headcounselor that year. I think she got engaged during the summer.

The infirmary lol! We got a group of friends be sick together and were up for hours at night! And we were excused late in the morning too. Mrs Berger once walked in on us after 2 because we were making so much noise Hiding

No. She only got engaged 3 or 4 years later, I think.

One of the headcounselors during my 5th grade summer got engaged during the summer. Maybe I'm mixing up the name's.
Remember the Casino?? The חדר האוכל?
Now it's called Ohel Sima Mirel. The camp is rebuilt so fancy, I'm almost jealous.... I spent 5th grade through AK summers in a dump!

And I'm feeling bad for my younger sisters. They won't get real camp experience in these fancy building. I mean, what's camp without carpets on the wall?? And without that 4th floor?

Omg these endless shabbos walks we were forced to go on! No staying behind what so ever! Why oh why??? And מ.ב.ר. passing our camp on their shabbos walk, 100's of girls marching by dressed in black and white.
Remember as a treat we used to go outdoor swimming at the modern bungalow colony across the street? Think it was mei menuchos? The scratches on my feet didn't heal yet......
