Thank you 2015 Print E-mail

Another year, and another Kinus. We had a wonderful time, and we hope you did, too.

I'd like to take the time to thank all the people who made it possible:

  • The Kinus Committee, who sat there and planned the whole thing for months and months. They spent hundreds of hours to make this year's Kinus so great.
  • The kitchen staff. Their work started weeks before the Kinusim. They had to buy, prepare, and transport the food to Camp Nobebosco. Then, instead of enjoying all the activities, they spent their whole time preparing one meal after another. As we were chowing down breakfast, they were busy working on lunch. When we gobbled down lunch, they got started with supper preparations. During supper, they were busy slicing bagels and preparing cream cheese for the next day's breakfast. And each and every one was a volunteer.
  • The parents and other adults who lent us their expertise to help lead the various sessions.
  • The older Scouts who spent their time teaching the younger scouts the skills they need.
  • All the other Scouts whose thorough enjoyment made the whole thing worthwhile. Plus, they helped us get rid of all that food.

Thanks everyone for attending. Hope to see you next year. Meanwhile, the Kinus committee is already starting to plan the 2016 Kinus. Since Shavuot won't be on Memorial Day weekend, we're aiming for Memorial Day weekend next year.  (When that's official, we'll let you know.) See you there, if not before!

Family Fun
You should have seen the one that got away!


Look at that smile. On both of them.

There's a couple of people who had a lot of fun. And, that's what the New Jersey Kinus is all about. For the past 39 years, hundreds of family members, Jewish boys and girls, fathers and mothers, uncles and aunts, and even an occasional bubba and zaide, have come to the Kinus to enjoy themselves in ways that aren't possible even in the heart of Manhattan.

It's time to spend with your kids, watching them learn new things while having a grand time. Every year, we offer dozens of sessions where kids learn traditional scouting things like hiking, camping, identifying trees, and first aid. But we also offer sessions on chemistry, folklore, transportation, photography, and many more. We also teach about citizenship in our community, our country, and in the world.

Worried about camping? Fear not. We're here to help you out. We provide delicious kosher meals throughout the Kinus and offer Orthodox and Egalitarian services. We'll help you get situated and makes sure you also have fun. You can join your kids, take some of the adult learning classes we offer,  or find a quiet and restful place to take a Shabbat snooze.

Register now, and come May, we'll see you there.
