Thank you for taking an interest in Camp Menorah, we look forward to providing your child with a fun filled and enriching summer camping experience. Here are a few useful tips we’ve put together to help ensure that you and your child have the best summer of your lives.
What should I pack my child for lunch?
We have several children with life-threatening peanut and nut allergies. We ask that you please do not send your children with peanut butter or nuts of any kind! See suggested lunch ideas below for alternatives.
All campers bring a lunch and beverage each day. To keep your child’s lunch cold on hot days, in place of an ice pack, try adding a frozen juice box as a beverage.
How will my child get to camp?
For added convenience, we offer school bus transportation to and from camp for an additional weekly fee.
Parents are notified of bus routes and exact pickup and drop off times before camp starts. Pickup is generally between 8:00 am and 8:30 am and drop off is between 4:30pm and 5:00pm Exact times may vary according to proximity to camp.
What should my child wear?
We encourage campers not to wear “good” clothes to camp. A simple outfit of shorts and a t-shirt is fine. Secure footgear is a must, as we only recommend flip flops for the beach. Please check weather forecasts and make sure your child is prepared with the proper clothing each day. If rain is predicted, send a raincoat or poncho. If it is cool, send a jacket or sweatshirt. It is also very important that your child has a bathing suit and towel every day. Most of our kids wear their bathing suits under their clothes. To easily identify lost items, be sure to label each piece of clothing with your child’s name.
Suggested Daily Packing List:
- Lunch with drink
- Swimming suit and towel
- Hat or cap
- Appropriate outer gear based on weather
What about medical issues?
We are proud of our outstanding safety record at Camp Menorah! There is always a qualified Registered Nurse on duty at camp. Please feel free to talk privately with the nurse at any time about any concerns you may have. Obviously, it is important that our staff know of any special medical issues relating to your child.
