Sukkot Conference

Sukkot is a time of celebration, and here are some of the fun activities we have planned for our Feast of Tabernacles.

The Cook Off

This event is a highlight night! So many wonderful chefs compete graciously to share their food with the camp, and last year the people’s choice was a hit!

Here’s the Rules:

  1. You may use any means to cook your food item(s). However, we encourage all to use a Fire pit*
  2. Three (3) items of food max. per Participant/Team per plate (One plate only allowed)
  3. One plate per Judge please (Items may be small portions). There will be 5 Judges present
  4. You may choose Entrée or dessert or both (remember Rule 2)
  5. Judging will be done on the overall plate – Not on an individual item basis
  6. Beverage:
    1. You may use any means to create your beverage**
    2. Three (3) beverages only allowed to be entered**
    3. One sample of each beverage per judge please (only a small amount necessary—1 to 2 oz.) There will be 5 judges present**
    4. Beverages can be whatever you choose: mixed drinks, wines, blends, brews, homemade concoctions, etc.**
    5. Judging will be done on the overall beverages**

    The Winner of the Cook Off will claim bragging rights and the Official Golden Spatula Trophy.

We would like to invite you to partake in this magnificent event!

This Cook-Off is full of opportunity for great fellowship, good ole competition and awesome food!

During the Feast of Sukkot there will be one night for everyone and anyone to participate in this Cook-Off.

Whether you choose to be one of the competitors, follow the judges around campsite to campsite partaking in the delicious food, or decide to be a “People’s Judge” you’re bound to have a blast!!

A recent addition to this fun event: The Crystal Glass Trophy “Beverage Competition.” Many, over the past few years, have created homemade brews, mixed drinks and wines that were accents to the delicious food for the Cook Off. We have decided to integrate this into the fun of the night. All types of beverages are welcome!

We love families having fun together, and last year we had so much fun with our own fair, we want to do it again this year. We need your brilliant ideas for how we can bless our children (and adults) with a fun time, serving each other.

Family Fun Fair

Our young ones having fun is such a great way to fellowship with everyone! We’ll need help to plan booths like corn hole, a cupcake walk, face painting, bean bag toss, or anything else You can plan up! We need your ideas to make this event fun and fruitful! Prizes are a blessing, and you could bring some for our children!

Skit Day

Scripture is so important, and we can learn valuable lessons when we try and tell the story ourselves. Your family or fellowship can perform a biblically based skit to share one afternoon, for a time of great fun and feeding the “sheep” too.

We love interactive learning here on the farm! Bring your biblical lessons of the year and share them with us in a skit!

In order to support Growing In Torah and get our first dorm building constructed, we are doing two fund raisers throughout Sukkot. Like last year, we will be selling raffle tickets for a fun-filled drawing! We will also be holding a silent auction for specialty items. Please consider bringing donations for each of these fundraisers.

There is also plenty of room and time to fellowship however you like! We’ve got ping pong tables, a few board games, and many people bring some from home! Card games are a camp favorite too.

Fellowship Downtime

We can study scripture together, or just sit and chat over a meal, in order to edify our brothers and sisters!

Hike to Panoramic Point

We also take a field trip up to the Sequoia National Park and take in the view from Panoramic Point. We like to carpool, and its a great way to get to know new people!

Join us on a very easy hike (with a wheelchair trail) up to Panoramic Point in the beautiful Sequoia National Forest.
