No Baths at Camp
"There are no baths at camp!” says Max, when his mother starts filling the tub. But as he recounts his week’s activities, he realizes that there were many fun ways he got clean at summer camp. The rich Shabbat experience in camp is described in great detail, from Kiddush on Friday night through Havdalah on the lake at the end of Shabbat. Jewish content is positive and culturally re-enforcing for the campers.
This is a light-hearted, amusing, and recommended story which would be perfect as a read-to for preschoolers or as an independent read for ages 6 – 8.
