Plug OUT! All year long our children are surrounded by technology. From computers, to cell phones and tablets and everything in between. We aim to keep the technology out of camp, thereby giving the campers a wholesome camp environment where they can plug out of the daily grind and plug into all the learning, activities & trips that camp has to offer. You can find more information on our electronics policy here
The music played in camp is one that follows the guidelines of a chassidishe environment. As campers come to camp, we aim to have a pure environment across the board for everyone.
