CAMP ATTIRE

During the school year, home and school play a most vital role in the Chinuch of our daughters. During the summer, sleep-away camp must take the place of both the home and school.

Camp Emunah is proud of its high standards of Tznius which we expect every girl to follow. Every camper and staff member is asked to carefully review the information below and to be sure that all clothing brought to camp is in compliance with the following:

  1. Skirts and dresses must cover the knees at all times; while standing, sitting, walking or playing sports
  2. Sleeves must cover the elbows AT ALL TIMES; wide sleeves are unacceptable. Only ¾ sleeves that are generously covering the elbow and are tight enough not to ride up when hands are raised may be worn. Skirts must generously cover the knees.
  3. All blouses and tops must be long enough so that when one’s arms are raised their entire body remains completely covered.
  4. Necklines must cover the collarbone, using safety pins to close open neck shirts is unacceptable.
  5. No bobby, crew, tube or slouch socks are to be worn. If one prefers to wear socks, they must be at least knee high.
  6. Skirts or dresses may not have a slit of any length. Slits including the front button down type must be completely sewn down.
  7. Straight skirts that are tight fitting or wrap around skirts that are not completely sewn down are unacceptable.
  8. Tee shirts with inappropriate slogans or messages are unacceptable.
  9. Two-piece bathing suits and/or Tankini’s are not permitted.
  10. Nail polish and makeup are unacceptable for campers’ use.
  11. Proper Shabbos clothing and footwear truly enhances our Shabbosim. Please be sure to bring only clothes and shoes that are completely tznius and dignify the Shabbos.
  12. Books, magazines and music of a general nature are not permitted in camp.
  13. During mealtimes, no one is allowed into the dining room dressed in a robe.
  14. Sleepwear must be according to the rules of Tznius, and pajama pants will only be allowed with a long length shirt over them.
  15. The wearing of leggings is discouraged. However, if you choose to wear leggings, knee socks must be worn as well to cover leggings. Leggings with short socks are not permitted.
  16. No cell phones, I-pods, and MP3 players permitted, if found in camper’s possession, they will be confiscated and not returned.

Camp reserves the right to take away any article that is not in compliance with the above rules. It will be the camp’s decision whether or not to return the confiscated item at the end of the summer.

“BZCHUS NOSHIM TZIDKONIOS...”

In the merit of all our campers in Camp Emunah who strive to achieve and accomplish what every Bas Chabad can epitomize through dress, speech and action. May we be Zocheh to be reunited with our Rebbe once again NOW!!!

Children who wear glasses should bring a spare pair.

Be sure that all articles of clothing and supplies have NAME TAPES sewn onto them.

All linens must have camper’s name and Camp Emunah on tape. Please use “sew-on” tapes, not the “iron-on” kind, as “iron on” tends to fall off in the wash.

Please do not bring jewelry, expensive electronics, or other valuables to camp. The management cannot assume responsibility for loss or theft of these items.

*If your child has on occasion wet her bed, please inform the nursing staff and send a plastic sheet, as well as additional linen
