Welcome Home, Micah in Israel!

Posted by on August 5, 2016

Today was an exciting day at Micah! This morning we welcomed home our Micah in Israel campers after five and a half wonderful weeks in Poland and Israel. There were so many hugs and smiles shared as our world travelers filed off of the bus. We cannot wait to hear more about their adventures in the days to come!

Micah hosted our first 15U Girls’ Volleyball tournament. Though our Micah girls did not prevail, they did make it to the finals! The team ended up playing all three sets, and though they fell behind in the third, they put forward an amazing effort. Way to go, ladies!

Our Ninja Warrior course continues to be all the buzz, and we have been so fortunate to work with various “ninjas” throughout the summer. Today we welcomed Jesse “Flex” Labreck, a contestant on American Ninja Warrior, who will be competing on the television show in just a few short weeks. Not only is she an incredible athlete (she makes the 14 foot wall look easy!) but she is also an amazing teacher. Campers truly benefitted from her tips and advice on how to be a real life ninja. Micah wishes her good luck in her upcoming competition!

This evening, the Critters and Prowlers enjoyed an outdoor dance party, while the Timbers and Summits watched an up and coming musician, Michael McArthur, perform acoustically. We have had some gorgeous starry nights up here in Bridgton, and we can’t believe that the summer is coming to a close in one week from today.
