What About Electronics at Camp

Camp is a screen-free experience!

Any devices with screens (including phones, iPads, computers, etc.) brought to Camp will be collected and held in a safe space in our Camp office for the duration of the session. Campers will receive their screens back at the end of the session, as they arrive at the airport, depart the bus or are picked up by family members. (This doesn’t NOT include pre-loaded Kindles, which are allowed at Camp or MP3 players that do not connect to WIFI.

If your child has a phone with them for travel purposes, make sure they understand that it must be turned in for storage upon arrival.

Suggestions to help your child(ren) adapt to this screen-free environment:

  • Talk to them about the benefits of “unplugging”
  • Provide them with address labels of friends and family along with postage
  • Send books, puzzles and other quiet activities that can be done during rest time at Camp

Music & Audio Books

Campers can bring an electronic reading device such as a Kindle or an original iPod, iPod shuffle or Nano, or other devices that do NOT require or allow web browsing or downloading.

Camp Ramah Darom bears no responsibility for lost or damaged personal electronics.

Please review the music your child wishes to bring to Camp to ensure it is appropriate for the Ramah Darom setting. Do NOT send your child to Camp with music that advocates drug use or violence, that is sexually explicit, degrading or that includes swearing, cursing or other inappropriate lyrics. 

Your assistance in this matter will help create a comfortable and positive environment for our campers and our entire community and communicate the value of Kedushat Halashon (the sanctity of language) that Camp holds so dear.
