nyplace can become
an instant camp-
ground if you
only imagine — even the
grounds of Temple Israel in
West Bloomfield. About 25
families pitched tents on the
temple lawn July 28 for the
3rd annual Camp Imagine, an
overnight program sponsored
by the Temple's young adult
Imagine group.
Robyn Dwoskin of West Bloomfield
co-chaired the event with her husband,
Jeff, and set up camp with their daughters,
Sophie, 8, and Emma, 5.
"The girls just had a great time,"
Dwoskin said. "It's a really fun experience
for families."
After getting settled, participants did
arts and crafts projects, including mak-
ing their own Camp Imagine pillow cases
and necklaces for small flashlights. They
also took part in a scavenger hunt that
led them all around the Temple to find
answers to their questions. The afternoon
of fun was followed by a cook out.
"We had a hot dog and veggie burger
dinner with salad, baked beans and corn:'
said Temple Israel's director of program-
ming, Tracie Fineman. "We ended dinner
with a surprise ice cream sundae bar as
a prize to everyone for doing such a great
job with the scavenger hunt."
In the evening, many of the children
and a few parents performed in a talent
show called "Temple Israel's Got Talent." A
special Havdalah service, a song session
around a campfire and s'mores rounded
out the evening.

"The campfire's always the
coolest:' Dwoskin said. "The smell
of the fire just brings back a lot of
childhood memories."
Spotted in the camping
crowd were: Mindy and Loren
Blumberg with their children
Alena and Sophie, Amy and
Marc Wander (Jack, Sam and
Hattie), and Tracy and Allan
Weitzman (Jacob and Abbey),
all of Farmington Hills; Franci
and Greg Hirsch (Brayden, Miles and
Mia) and Jennifer and Ryan Schneider
(Andrew and Emily), all of Commerce
Township; Elisa and Ray Kantor (Alexis,
Naomi and Sarah), and Ellen and Noah
Krugel (Jesse and Adam), all of Novi; and
Hayley and Brad Warren (Ricki, Aidan
and Devin) of West Bloomfield.
