    Please share your memories from Camp Morris.

    YW Band

    I have too much to say!

    1. “The Shot Heard All Around the Country”: The best player on the Morris team (i think of all time) was Katzy. We were playing Heller and it was a back & forth game. It got down to the very end with a score of 58-56 Heller. Morris hit a 2 to tie it up. The place roared like you never heard it before. Can you imagine the sight of some of the Rabbeim at the game? well they were lol. So Heller was fouled and the hit both shots (shoot). Now with 6 seconds left, of course they pass the ball to Katzy & he went for a fade-away 3 pt & he swished it!!! Everyone in the gym jumped up with a victory cheer! Morris finally beat one of the good teams, but that was the last big victory of the All-Star Era…

    2. Ping-Pong is the main sport. I witnessed 2 famous guys who knows stocks etc were shmoozimng about stocks over a fast pace ping-pong game. I guess you can call them pros…

    3. The Morris Lawn. A place to learn with relaxation & feel geshmake breeze & gear up to get a hitch lol

    4. The Guesthouse. The 9 & 10th Grade bunkhouse. The head sleeps there so they don’t have much slack

    The Ranch. The 11th Grade bunkhouse. They still have an OD.

    The Doghouses. The 12th Grade bunkhouses No more OD! It consists of 2 rooms per bunkhouse with 4 beds in each room. Btw 1 of my friend’s room had a hole in floor so mice were invited lol.

    The Barracks. The Bais Medrash bunkhouses. The place which Mesivta was dying for. Used mainly for grilling, playing chess, cards, reading Harry Potter (things in my days) & have nice rooms with 3 beds in each with good shower & quite spacious.

    These are only a part of my memories & I’d like to hear others as well.
