NE II 75 will be a Wood Badge for everyone, including those who have not been
able to attend because of religious dietary requirements, daily religious
obligations, losing two Sundays or a handicapping condition.
The course will run form Wednesday, August 23 to Thursday, August 31 at Camp
Siwanoy, Wingdale, NY. All the food will be kosher (under orthodox
rabbinical supervision - the rabbi used to be a fox) to meet the needs of
traditional Jews and Moslems. The daily schedule has the times for Jewish
and Moslem required prayers built in. By running over only one weekend, men
and women who are active in their churches or synagogues are away for only
one Saturday or Sunday. Sunday has Catholic, Jewish, Mormon and Protestant
This course is endorsed by the North America Northeast Area Presidency of the
Camp Siwanoy and the Wood Badge area is handicap accessible.
The staff is top notch under the direction od SM Jim Healy, who can be
reached at (914) 679-8586. If you have any questions about the kosher
standards, call me, Mike Poretsky, at (718) 376-2585.
