Camp Coleman - there are no words...

Well, try capturing a lifetime of experiences in one short blog post.
Sure, we did songwriting. Sure we did some workshops and programming...

But more than that, we made fantastic connections with so many people over the weekend.

Not only were the campers so amazing and smart and thoughtful (shout out to G6 girls and to the 7/8th grade girls, the 9th grade girls, Machon girls, well, BASICALLY all of the teen girls!), but the staff rocked it, and the camp committee was there as well, so I got to meet all of the people who really overtly show their love for this camp all year round!!

So a couple of things...
1. I HAVE to share the cutest lyrics from the "Frog song" the kids wrote (see all the way below)
2. I really want to share this video - talk about RUACH for YISRAEL - look at the ENTIRE camp singing and dancing to Tutim by Ethnix!! Check this out!
First read the words here

Now, watch this video!

Chorus Translation: Strawberries, strawberries, come we'll buy only strawberries
Instead of other war-machines.


THANKS, COLEMAN!!! Have a great rest of the summer!!

Camp Coleman Songwriting Experience! LYRICS ....

Verse (written by Sophie Hecker, G1A; Danny Marks, B3B and Ashley Osiason, G2A)

When frogs come out at night

Some kids are filled with fright

Frogs like to get ahead

They never want to go to bed

Pre-Chorus (written by Lance Madow, B3B; Dani Tylim, G1A and Marlee Gordon, G4A)

What are the stories of your childhood?

Can you please tell me?

Have you ever caught a frog?

Just listen and you’ll see…

Chorus (written by Dot, aka: Rianna Saslow, G2A; Jonah Miller, B3B and Noa Hechtman (G4A)

When night falls the bugs might sleep

But the frog won’t really slumber

The people might get rest tonight

But the frogs stay up late all night

When night falls the bugs might sleep

But the frog won’t really slumber

‘cause they’re having a party out of sight

Before the nighttime turns to light

Verse (writeen by Zeke Lafevers, B7A; Carly Novell, G1A and Emma Fiore, G3B)

As I walk back to my cabin at night

The sounds of the frogs gives me a fright

I almost ran but then I thought twice

‘cause the cute little froggies shone in the moonlight

Pre-Chorus

What are the stories of your childhood?

Can you please tell me?

Have you ever caught a frog?

Just listen and you’ll see…

Chorus

When night falls the bugs might sleep

But the frog won’t really slumber

The people might get rest tonight

But the frogs stay up late all night

When night falls the bugs might sleep

But the frog won’t really slumber

‘cause they’re having a party out of sight

Before the nighttime turns to light

Hi, I'm Ashley Osiason, one of the people who wrote the frog song. I searched my name and this came up, so I felt like leaving a comment! :)

Ashley, you rock! What a fun, hysterical song that was! You all were so fantastic! Hope you're going back to camp this summer!

Haha, it's the same Ashley! Five years down the road, I've finished my chalutzim summer. I looked this up because I was feeling a little nostalgic. :) I ended up writing a second song with Coleman Rocks, the camp band, this year. It came out really nice. Thanks for introducing songwriting to me!
