Many camps provide a fantastic summer for its campers, yet leaves them with only fond memories and sad goodbyes when summer comes to an end. The Zone, however, works at maintaining the relationships and inspiring moments found during the summer with ChillZone, Shabbatons, and Yom Tov events throughout the year.
We recently received the following email from a couple of Zone campers who are now in seminary in Israel that illustrate the powerful outreach of The Zone:
Dear our Oorah parents,
As the yomim noraim are coming to an end and seminary is on full ride now, we wanted to share a few thoughts. The zone has really prepared us for coming to Israel even despite the challenges . It has taught us how to find the right girls to befriend, get into the more serious schools and really just shown us how much you’ve always been there for us. Times here might get hard but we always know TheZone is never too far away. We just wanted to let you know with the zone as our background we were set up for an amazing, inspiring, growth oriented year. As we look at the girls around us , we see how lucky we are to have the zone to keep us connected. Our torahmates continue to inspire us over the seas so we never feel too far away. We look forward to the upcoming zone events, chillzone, and even hopefully to what this summer holds in store for us.
From your children in Israel,
C & I
We are so happy these girls feel able and ready for an inspiring year in Israel!
