Bruce’s Blog: We’re Permitted


Two years ago I sat down with a friend of mine to begin the initial design of the new Phyllis Weisfeld Theatre. I was under the impression that we would come up with a design, submit it to the building department at Ramara Township, get a permit and start building. Simple, straight forward and problem free. Two years later and now, much better educated in these matters, it is not simple, straight forward and problem free. But, as I preach to my children and many campers that come to camp, accomplishments that require effort, perseverance, hard work and determination are much more satisfying than those that are easy. Even if the results are the same in either case, the achievements that test your character, allow you to grow and make you stronger and better equipped to handle future challenges. And that’s how I feel today because on September 18th we received our building permit from Ramara Township and construction of the new theatre is officially underway. Continue reading »

Bruce’s Blog: New Year, Endless Potential


The Jewish New Year makes a lot of sense on many levels. The opportunity to reflect on the past, make amends for mistakes, set goals and try to improve your potential are all part of it. As well, just the timing makes a lot more sense than January 1st. The end of the summer and the start of the school year is a more natural and significant transition and new beginning instead of one cold snowy day compared to another cold snowy day. Particularly this year when Rosh Hashanah literally coincides with the start of school, it really is a true beginning with endless potential. Continue reading »


Bruce’s Blog: It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year


 At the end of each summer as the buses pull away for the final time I always start humming the tune “It’s the most wonderful time of the year”. I completely understand the sadness that comes with the end of camp and I genuinely am affected like any other camper or staff but there is also a tremendous sense of relief and satisfaction knowing that another successful season has come and gone and everyone had an amazing experience and arrived home safely. This year was no exception, except that this summer was so exceptional on so many levels. We reached new heights in programming, special events, food, excitement, creativity and fun as we “Camped Our Style” every day, all summer. The other added bonus is that this year, before camp even ended, there was more fervour and interest in the following summer then ever before. And with good reason! Continue reading »

Closing Video 2013

It’s hard to believe that another summer has come to a close. It was an amazing and emotional night in the theatre as the camp sang songs, presented plaques and looked back on all the memories from this incredible summer. We’re proud to present the closing video which was screened for the entire camp at the end of Closing Ceremonies 2013.

From all of us at Waha TV and Camp Wahanowin, thank you for watching this summer. It’s been a pleasure having you along for the ride. Stay tuned in the off season for more videos, and we look forward to having you join us again in 2014! Continue reading »
