As a licensed camp under the Israeli Ministry of Education, Camp Dror is obligated to follow all testing and quarantine regulations as set by the government. These rules change often. Camp Dror cannot tell parents what the obligations regarding testing and quarantine are until close to the start of camp. As per current regulations, campers do not need to be vaccinated to join, but will most likely be required to have proof of a negative PCR or antigen test before the start of camp. Camp Dror reserves the right to administer PCR/antigen tests to campers during camp as needed.
Laundry services are available and are not included in camp tuition. Campers interested in using the laundry service will be charged NIS 15 per kilo (2.2 lbs.) of laundry, and their clothing will be returned clean and folded 4 days after pick-up.
Campers who intend to hand-wash clothing should bring along washing detergent. If necessary, the counselors will instruct and assist them.
We provide transportation to and from Camp Dror from various regions in Israel at no extra cost. More information about the exact bus station and times will be published as July 5th approaches.

That being said, if there are parents who want to visit the camp, this can only be done with arrangements made in advance through the office. Visits must be limited to days the campers are on campus and are limited to one hour of time maximum.

Rules And Regulations
Children are expected to adhere to the camp rules and regulations. Appropriate behavior is required at all times. In the event that a camper’s actions are deemed inappropriate, the camp reserves the right to suspend his/her participation in specific activities or for the remaining duration of the camp. In such cases, there will be no monetary refund.
Mobile Phones Usage Policy
In order to provide a unique camp experience and fun for the campers, Camp Dror has successfully led a policy regarding the use of cell phones for several years. On the first day of camp all cellphones will be collected and safeguarded by the camp staff. On Fridays, campers will receive their cellphones for a few hours in order to call family and friends before Shabbat. In the event of an emergency, campers will be contacted with the assistance of the camp staff. The camp directors are always available. In addition, you can contact the camp’s Project Director at 050-202-2085. Please do not send additional cellphones with your child to be used secretly.
We know how important it is for you to be in contact with your children throughout the summer and we are happy to provide an e-mail service. Throughout the summer you can e-mail email@example.com OR firstname.lastname@example.org, entering your child’s name and grade into the subject line and s/he will receive your e-mail in camp. Emails to the campers will be distributed every 3 days, please do not send emails more frequently.
