10. Rolling down the big hill just outside the cheder ochel

So dizzy! But there's just isn't a quicker (or more fun) way to get back to your tents after a big meal.

8. Doing the "knaidlach" challenge

We'll all experienced the mushy joy of stuffing matzah balls into our armpits and running across the lake. Last one back has to eat them all!

5. "trash" vs. "maneuver" debates

Every camp there's always one heated debate about this. Everyone gathers around and cheers for their side, chanting "glory to the winner" or "eternal damnation to the loser", before the two opponents engage each other in a mace-and-chain duel to the death.

4. Secretly sabotaging the other movement camps

I'm sure we all remember sneaking into the other camps and replacing their pillows with live reptiles in the middle of the night. Then, they don't suspect anything until the last night of camp, when their pillows have laid eggs and they are forced to become foster parents to the reptilian babies.

3. Singing the "sibling song"

Everyone always cries when all the siblings of shnatties get up to perform a moving rendition of "what a wonderful world" by Louie Armstrong.

2. The Rosh Needs a Wash

Because they're so busy, the heads of camp don't always get a chance to shower. They always stink by the end of camp!
