MORE than 560 youngsters from Jewish communities around the world joined together for the Jewish Lads’ and Girls’ Brigade’s summer camp.
The action-packed week of fun, adventure and learning took place in Essex.
The theme was ‘Emoji’ and the activities were designed to encourage the young members to embrace their individuality and express themselves in a positive and healthy way.
Formed into teams, the youngsters developed skills through a variety of different activities, including coding, first aid, cookery, debate, music and arts and crafts, with one team being crowned winner at the final awards ceremony.
Other activity sessions included climbing, zip-wire, high ropes and kit car racing.
Nightly productions entertained a packed house each evening and young members and leaders took to the stage to express their inner creativity through song, dance and music in the first JLGB musical.
They were also treated to a surprise performance from special guest, former X-Factor contestant Luena Martinez.
JLGB aims to have a summer camp of more than 600 next year.
Meanwhile, plans are underway for a maze-themed winter camp, which will take place from December 27 to January 1.
