Bubbie Zaydie camp at Butzel
gives generations time for fun.
amarack Camps concluded another successful
Bubbie Zaydie Family Camp season in mid-
August. Since 1984, grandparents and their
grandchildren, ages 4-14, have been coming to the Butzel
Retreat Center in Ortonville to spend a fun-filled Shabbat
weekend with each other. No parents are allowed.
Longtime participants Michael and Elaine Serling said,
"Our family has so much enjoyed Bubbie Zaydie camp
over the years. This summer our older granddaughter,
Alexis, was a camper for three weeks in part due to her
experience at Bubbie Zaydie camp:'
Pam Opperer said, "Your counselors are the best!!
They are tireless, cheerful, supportive, warm, friendly,
smart, fun and sensitive. Regarding the food, the best
kosher food I have had — still thinking about the deli-
cious Shabbat chicken dinner:'
Family Camp Director Helayne Shaw attributes the
success of the program to the opportunity for grandpar-
ents and grandchildren to create lasting memories in the
comfortable setting of the Butzel Retreat Center. They
enjoy arts and crafts and tie-dye projects, Havdalah ser-
vice around the campfire with s'mores, boating, fishing,
swimming and so much more, all under the guidance of
a talented staff of counselors.
Bubbie Zaydie Family Camp is offered mid-June
through mid-August. For more information, visit www.

balloons and games for children and adults. Thanks to Hillers
