Other info

**Miss-A-Camp-A-Phobia: a feeling of profound sadness and jealousy that occurs when you see the videos and hear all the stories of the great time had at a camp.
The syndrome can apply in its milder form for parties and workshops.
The only cure is innoculation by registering for the next camp or dance event, whereby the symptoms will slowly subside.
Publisher's note:
This pseudo-medical condition brought to the readers of Israeli dances dot com by veteran North American Israeli dancers. Many of whom participate in the Gvanim annual dance camp, though they acknowledge that the syndrome is widespread and occurs in all the countries in which Israeli dances are taught.
