If my child isn’t Jewish, can he or she attend Camp Kesher?
Absolutely. Camp Kesher is for both Jewish and Gentile kids!
What if my child cannot come for the whole week?
Please contact camp leadership with your specific situation at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are their any scholarships for my child?
Chosen People Ministries is already heavily subsidizing the cost of the camp. First we encourage you to approach the elders of your congregation to ask for support to help send your kids to camp. If there is extra need please contact camp leadership with your situation at email@example.com.
Are there any discounts for families registering siblings?
If you need additional help due to registering multiple children, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for possible solutions.
How do I enter my child’s health information?
You enter the information when you register your child for camp. If you don’t have all of their information all at one time it is not a problem. You can go back into the registration system with your login and password to continue the process.
Does Camp Kesher offer rides to and from camp for my children?
The quick answer is usually no, however, we may be able to put you in contact with people from your area who are going to camp also. Please contact us with more specific details at email@example.com.
Will my child need any money while at camp?
Can my child have their cell phone while at camp?
Unless there are unusual and extenuating circumstances, the answer is no. We will send you a phone number where you can reach camp directors 24 hours a day.
What should my child bring to camp?
Please see the list on this site of what to bring.
Will my child need to bring their own bedding/sleeping bag and towels?
Does Camp Kesher provide Glatt Kosher food or Glatt Kosher options.
No. The food offered at camp will feature no pork or shellfish but may mix meat and dairy. We call this, “kosher style.”
Can we write letters to our children?
Due to the short duration of camp, we would recommend forgoing this because we cannot guarantee that your camper will receive the letters by the time they leave.
Can we call our children while they are at camp to check on them?
Based on experience, we recommend that you try to refrain from calling. We encourage you to encourage your child to try to meet as many new people as possible and to participate as much as possible. For some campers who tend toward being homesick, frequent calls may actually inhibit their experience at camp.
