Buy No Baths at Camp
It's bath time at Max's house, and he's cranky about it. He grumbles that he'd rather be back at summer camp, because "there are no baths at camp!" His mom is skeptical, so Max narrates a week of activities. From rock climbing to art class, marshmallow roasting to canoeing, there is plenty of messy fun, but no nightly bath. The week's only shower comes in preparation for Shabbat, as the children first clean up the camp and then scrub themselves in preparation for a day of resting, singing, and stories.
