Camp Chayolei Hamelech has been operating under the directorship/management of Yankle Spritzer and family (mainly Shlomie Rutman) since 2006. Spritzer and Rutman had previously mismanaged Machne Menachem between the years of 1996 till the summer of 2003. Total years of Spritzer/Rutman operating a summer camp for the children of Crown Heights, eleven years.
You would think after all these years of such a “successful” camp, there would be no need to advertise*. In fact one would think that by the time Purim came along, registration would be coming to a close, with a full camp of over 500 children (between the ages of 8 to 13), not including the older divisions (7th and 8th grade programs).
*We don’t see such a push of advertisement from any of the other Chabad/Crown Heights camps as we do Spritzers camp. We don’t even see the newer camps (2-3 years old) begging for campers, they seem to be doing fine.
Desperate People Do Desperate Things
The must successful camp advertising every Monday and Thursday (Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday included), begs the question of, is this camp really having any success at all?
Can anybody explain to me who could have been the brains behind this stupid and very desperate, I don’t even know what to call it, it’s not a plan, it’s not even a technique, what in the world is this? Don’t answer, it was a theoretical question, the master behind this thing, is none other then Shlomie Rutman, the best camp directer and manager in the whole wide world.
Besides in my Shul the kids (over 60) got free ice cream without registering to camp.
And what did Rutman say to those children that came for a hot-dog or ice cream that did not register to camp, did he send them away?
Ok, so let’s see how this hot-dog thing turned out….
At some point in time reinforcements were called in to hold back the lines.
Why they keep on coming back year after year….
Notice the abundance of goodies special for those individuals who are going to be managing almost every aspect of day to day camp. Spritzer brings out the works. We have, a third empty bottle of soda; third empty rolled up bag of chips; an empty bag of licorice; an empty bag of pretzels’; 5 cups and six people. And most importantly, notice the body language of ALL those sitting there, they just look so excited to be there. Wow, this is going to be a smashing summer.
The Best for last…
Don’t you just love the self promoting comments, there so inspiring… take a look…
…I wish I was a kid again so I could go to Spritzers camp and get a free hot-dog and ice cream.
Oh yes before I forget…. Spritzer makes an appeal in bankruptcy court.
This appeal is so foolish I wont even waste my wasting time ripping it apart. All I will do in responds is direct you to Honorable Judge Glassers Final Verdict (finding of facts) and the Honorable Judge Thomas Final Verdict (finding of facts).
