Bringing Light to Jersey

IY"H, I'll be doing chanuka mivztoim over in central Jersey, where I was a counselor for a couple of summers. It'll be of the Bikkur Bayis variety, mainly.
I hope to be able to make it up to East Brunswick, and Highland Park, to visit my campers. That will really surprise them. Most think that they won't see you until the reunion.
Actually, one of my campers was here a few Shabbosim ago, davening in Beis Shmuel with his father and brothers. I went down to meet him, and he was completely shocked to see me. He wouldn't shake my hand. The only thing he said to me was, "What are you doing here?!"
I was a little saddened about how shy he was and how we couldn't speak any more, but I understood. He is only eight years old.
