Are there things I shouldn’t send my child? Do I need to send money with my child?

We recommend that you not send valuables with your children. Full room and board is provided so there is no need to send money. However, if you’re interested in sending your child pocket money (there is a grocery store next to the camp), we recommend that you send no more than 250 NIS for the duration of their stay in the camp. Please do not send laptops, tablets, music players or other electronic devices. We do not allow the use of such devices during camp because they can negatively impact the experience of the fellow campers.

On Fridays, campers will receive their cellphones for a few hours in order to call family and friends before Shabbat.
