1. It’s Not for Everyone

If you want to send your kids to camp, there’s definitely a way that you can afford it, whether through fundraising, scholarships or some other means.
3. It’s All Fun and Games
While summer do camps want your child to have a good time, Jewish summer camps are centered around specific ideals and experiences. This means that your little ones will have fun, but they will learn while they are doing it. Don’t think of camp as a time waster.
