What to Bring

Remember, camp can (and will) get a little messy. Please send your camper in comfortable clothes that you don’t mind getting a little dirty. All campers need to wear close-toed shoes. Open-toed shoes may only be worn during water activities. Here is a list of the items your camper should bring daily:

~ Kosher-style lunch (suggestions can be found below)

~ Water bottle

~ Bathing suit, towel and sunscreen

~ Change of clothes

~ A positive attitude

We ask that all items are marked with your camper’s first and last name.


 Lunch and Kosher Rules

Please send a clearly labeled, cold lunch with your camper each day. We are unable to provide microwaves or ovens. Please respect the Jewish dietary laws, called Kashrut or Kosher, observed by the JEA. This requires that lunches only contain dairy or pareve (neither dairy nor meat) items. No meat items are allowed (think vegetarian/pescatarian). Suggestions on lunch ideas are listed below. For any questions about the laws of kashrut, please ask. We are happy to help!
