Best part of sternberg was catching bugs in the lake with a strainer. We got more points for better bugs.
Sadly it’s just not the same camp now



That was so much fun, nature with Mrs. Greenblatt, and if you caught a bat or rat you'd get -50!

Sternberg 1980-1987!! I got into Pioneers the first year it started. My parents signed me up because the regular bunks were full and Pioneers were new that year and still had room! And yes, I swam in the lake, where your white towels turned brown when we dried ourselves off because of the mud. Today's campers are spoiled lol.
We're going on a trip, a great canoing trip, down the Delaware riverrrrr!

Who remembers Rabbi Greenwald z'tzl making us count to ten during the meal after a fast so we wouldn't eat too fast?

True fact: anyone who ever went to Sternberg still does this (or at least thinks of it) at the end of every fast.

Some of the first Yiddish I knew was “ess gezunteheit”

Speaking of, did anyone go to Rabbi Greenwald’s Yiddish club? I was jealous of those who did.

Any Sternbergers remember this: Rabbi Greenwald would give a speech the first day of camp in the dining room, and end with "And then you can get a free soda". And suddenty everyone is like Wait what did he just say? How can we get free soda?!. He actually didn't say anything real it was gobbldygook but sounded like real words...anyone know what I'm talking about??
