Must campers wear a camp T-shirt every day?
No, we require that all campers wear a Lubavitch Day Camp T-shirt on trip days only. Each camper should purchase at least one T-shirts before camp begins. Since all camp staff and campers wear camp shirts, we are instantly recognizable to each other. While on field trips camp shirts distinguish our campers and staff from other visitors. Camp shirts, Kipot, and caps will be available for purchase before the start of camp.
How does my camper find a lost item?
Please mark all belongings with your camper’s name and group. This is very important since shirts, backpacks, etc. are identical and individual items are difficult to identify without a label. Lost & Found items are available each day in the office. Please contact us by email or by phone regarding specific items.
How does the transportation system work?
Lubavitch Day Camp uses a modern fleet of buses and buses from the local Bus Company. Campers must remain seated at all times.

Lubavitch Day Camp is open for parental visits every camp day. We suggest that you schedule your visit carefully as your camper may be involved in a field trip or other off-campus activity. All visitors will be directed to the camp office for visitor registration and assistance.
What if my child does not want to participate in a particular activity?

L.D.C. is a totally non-judgemental environment made up of campers from all Jewish backgrounds. An individual’s level of observance is not stressed. All children enjoy a shared Jewish spirit through songs and projects.

How often does my child drink water at camp each day?
There are water canteens out side during all outdoor activates. Drinking is mandatory between sports.
