It Takes Only One

Tuesday, 13 July 2010

“What if I’m the youngest kid?”
“What if no one likes me?”
“What if I don’t make any friends?”

For the past few years, Poppyseed has been too young to be in session while up at JewCamp. She happily spent her days in Camp Katan — the day camp for Faculty kids who are not yet old enough to be attached to a cabin. This year, Poppyseed is too old for Katan, yet not quite old enough to stay in a cabin. The solution?? Day camper. From Aruchat Boker (breakfast) through Hashkevah (cabin activity meant to quiet down the campers), day campers are with a cabin and participate in all activities. This option is available only to the Faculty and Staff kids.

Poppyseed is a year younger than the youngest campers here right now. So this was the only option available to her. But she worried that as the youngest kid, the other girls wouldn’t want to hang out with her.

Not to worry, Poppyseed. You only needed to connect with one other person to feel comfortable. And right away you found a friend. Remember, it takes only one.
