How will I communicate with my children during the summer?
Each camp has its own communication policy. Traditional letters are the best way to communicate with your children. Children love to receive letters while at camp. The camps encourage them to write home at least once a week. Some camps provide an email service. Others allow campers to call home once.
How often is the laundry done?
Laundry is done once a week; campers need to pack for 8-10 days.
Can they bring electronic devices?
Cell phones or electronic devices can be used ONLY during travel days. Children must turn them in when they arrive at camp. Electronic devices are not allowed at camp.
How is the food at camp? What if my child has a food allergy?
Balanced meals are made at camp every day. There are always different options available. Fresh fruits and salads are offered every day. Most camps are able to accommodate a variety of special diets. Please let us know about your child’s needs before they are enrolled.
What is the camp lice policy?
All camps have a very strict no nit/lice policy. Head lice infestation is a problem in any communal setting where children are in close contact. It is considered an infectious disease. Children will be carefully checked for head lice on their first day at camp. Any child arriving with nits/lice will be isolated from the group. The Camp will treat the child. The cost is not included in the camp tuition.
What happens if my child gets sick or is injured at camp?
All the camps have an infirmary open 24/7. If a child gets sick, the medical staff will apply her/him a treatment. If necessary, the child will be taken to the nearest hospital.
Does my child need to bring any money?
We recommend parents to provide some pocket money. Children may use it in excursions or at the airport. We suggest between $20-$100.
