If you are dropping off your child after 9:15 it will be necessary to park and come to front door.

No parents will be allowed in the building.



Pick Up - 3:30pm  
Please drive up to the side entrance of Kellman Brown Academy. There will be a staff member waiting to escort the children to your car so it is not necessary to park your car. 

If someone else is picking up your child, whether it’s a relative, friend or another camp parent, please make note of that on your camp account or inform the camp director in the morning or via note or telephone call (Unless you add them as authorized pickups on you camp account in UltraCamp).

We will not be able to honor children’s messages about whom they think they may be going home with. Please avoid any confusion and make sure that clear messages are given.

The bus can not wait for late comers. Please be sure to be on time!

All campers and staff must wear masks on bus.

There will be a bus monitor taking attendance. Kiddy campers will have to sit in the front 8 seats. Families will be seated together.

Driving on the bus to camp is a privilege that can be revoked if a child is not able to behave appropriately and safely on the bus. Please make sure that your child understands this. 


Swimming* 
We will be swimming at  Haddontowne Swim Clubs weather permitting. 

On all swim days please send with your child a bag with a clearly labeled towel, swimsuit, water shoes and sunscreen for reapplication. It is the responsibility of the parent or guardian to apply sunscreen on your child in the mornings before camp. 

Please refer to the camp calendars as there are some date changes regarding swimming.

Swim days are subject to change due to weather conditions.



Trips 
Kiddy Camp (3-5 year old's) will not be going on trips this summer.

Juniors and Pioneers will be going on carefully chosen outdoor trips, such as hiking, berry picking etc. where we will either be alone or easy to maintain distance from other groups.

There will be no Pioneer Overnights this year, however we are planning two late nights at Six Flags and Cape May.

We will be traveling by T&L Bus Service on all of our trips. On all trip days campers must wear their Camp Gan Israel t-shirt which they will receive on their first day of camp. Additional t-shirts can be purchased for $12.

Trip days are subject to change due to weather conditions.

Communication
Please feel free to share your feedback, suggestions, or critique regarding any aspect of the camp’s program with us. Your input allows us to constantly improve and upgrade our program, and we value it greatly. You may email [email protected]

The counselors fill out daily progress reports for each camper, and the director meets weekly with each counselor to discuss the status of every child.

Lunch and Snacks

1 - In general, campers should bring in their own Kosher lunch.
2 - Wednesday is Pizza Day! We will have Pizza delivered for the whole camp, so no need to send in lunch.
3 - Camp will always have bread, cream cheese, hard cheese, jelly, fruits, veggies and snacks on site to offer your children instead of bringing in their own lunch. (No need to notify us in advance)
