Today Bus H left Minneapolis headed for Chicago. On the way they stopped in the Wisconsin Dells where they went on a duck tour which took them on land and through the water in a vehicle that is both a truck and boat.

Today Bus D’s fantastic summer came to a close. The group woke up and did Shacharit together for the last time before saying their tear-filled goodbyes. Bus D then began to head home as some wheelniks headed to the airport or were picked up by parents. The summer was truly an experience of a lifetime and the friendships that were made will last a lifetime. Thank you for reading. We hope to see the wheelniks at USY International Convention in Philadelphia!
