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!

It's Coming Back!
It's Coming Back!


That's right! The Kinus is coming back, and it's our 40th year. Every year, Jewish Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts from all over the Northeast, all over the nation, and even from all over the world (Hey! Canada is technically a foreign country) gather each year to join us in the New Jersey Kinus.

And, each and every year, all of those Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts have the time of their lives as they enjoy the great outdoors. Last year, they learned about photography, computers, chemistry, folklore, art, pioneering, journalism, aviation, astronomy, and over three dozen different sessions. They went hiking over the Appalachian Trail, learned to build a camp fire, shot bow and arrows, fired guns, and even did some first aid (not related to the previous activities).

Not a camper? It doesn't matter. We're here to help smooth out your roughing it experience. We provide delicious meals, relaxing activities, and great camaraderie. Relax by the pond, listen to the birds, even take a nice Shabbat snooze. But, don't miss the fun.

If you missed out on all the fun at last year's Kinus, just take a look at our gallery and our Facebook page and see what you missed.

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