Please ensure that all items are clearly labelled with your child’s name.   This is in YOUR interest as it’s virtually impossible for you to find your missing items if they are not named.

Preferably no jeans as they absorb water if they get rained on and not easy to dry

No razors, sharp objects or kettles they will be confiscated.


RSY-Netzer and The Movement for Reform Judaism cannot take responsibility for the loss of, or damage to, any personal property taken to one of our camps.  If your child is taking anything of significant value to an event, please ensure that either the items are already covered by your existing household policies or that you have taken out adequate cover.
