PHONES DURING CAMP:
No cell phones should be used during the camp day unless it is specifically stated that it is necessary for communication. Phone cameras cannot be used during camp hours.
Photos should be taken with the camp cameras.
We expect that the counselors’ speech should reflect her education as a Bas Chabad: This includes no mentioning of secular music, (obviously no listening to it either), movies, TV, and the like. The discussions that take place between the counselors and jr. counselors and counselors with their campers need to be using language that befits us, and on topics which are in the spirit of Yiddishkeit and Chassidishkeit (where the counselor is the mashpia and jr. counselors/ campers are the mekabel, not vice-versa).
Counselors’ dress must be in line with the laws and spirit of Halacha at all times. (skirts that cover the knees while sitting, walking etc., necklines that cover the collar bone, sleeves that cover the elbow and socks are all a must. We ask that you dress nicely and respectfully and please do not bring very tight fitting clothing.) Questionable clothing does not belong in our camp. The counselors will be required to wear the camp t-shirt to camp each day. Each counselor will be provided with 3 t-shirts.
We expect that the counselors’ behavior be appropriate for someone representing what we represent. We want the counselors to have a good time, but in a responsible way without causing a chillul Hashem.
