Is your upcoming bar or bat mitzvah child leaving soon for camp? Are you stressing about their mitzvah project? The gift of an overnight camp experience is exciting for you and your child, however, if there is a bar/bat mitzvah within the next 6 months, it’s difficult to visualize when their project will be completed. Life gets busy after the summer with school preparations and vacation on the horizon.
The Mitzvah Bowl staff created a list of 10 easy-to-start mitzvah project ideas your child may initiate now and continue after their overnight camp experience:
- Write letters to soldiers.
- Donate items to an organization.
- Support a specialty camp for children with health or other needs.
- Volunteer at a senior living facility to help residents with computer skills or join their knitting group.
- Find a refugee organization in need of clothing and household items.
- Have a locker clean out party at school. Donate unused school items to underprivileged children for the Fall.
- Join in a sports organization for special needs children. Many are searching for helpers.
- Cook for a homeless shelter or search for a cooking group within your local synagogue.
- Clean up a park or work with an environmental group to create awareness of our natural resources.
- Raise awareness about a cause near and dear to your family.
