Memories made at mega camp
Traditional sport options included football, netball, basketball, volleyball, and hockey, but there were also some less common options to try
A huge turnout, a frenzy of fun activities, and mostly perfect weather, made for a wonderful autumn school holiday Maccabi NSW mega camp experience at Moriah College from April 19-21.
A total of 160 Jewish children from years 3 to 6 participated in the three-day sports camp, strengthening friendships, establishing new ones, and providing plenty of opportunities to keep active.
Traditional sport options included football, netball, basketball, volleyball, and hockey, but there were also some less common options to try, such as ultimate frisbee, spikeball and Olympic handball.
The camp’s participants included members from Maccabi NSW’s All Abilities community, as both campers and youth leaders, and at the end of each day of the camp, awards were presented for best sportsman and sportswoman of the day, based not just on sports performance and participation, but also on fair play.
The event would not have been possible without the involvement of Maccabi NSW youth manager and mega camp manager Taryn Levin, Maccabi NSW general manager Ori Danieli, coaching coordinators Sylvester Wilson and Vanessa Abrahams, and volunteer youth leaders.
“We’re sure the kids can’t wait to do it all again at the next mega camp in October,” Danieli said.
