You’re looking at a broad range of camps. Take into consideration his age, who else from his school is going where, price for starters.December 21, 2008 6:25 pm at 6:25 pm #878834tutzechMember

Agudah is pretty good.December 22, 2008 12:02 am at 12:02 am #878838qwertyuiopMember
i was in mogen av its a good camp but a little strictDecember 22, 2008 3:28 am at 3:28 am #878839just meParticipant
My 2 boys have been going to Bei Kyta since it started. It has a strong learning plus organized leages and afternoon programs. Both my boys took the life guard course and got Red Cross certified. They both worked as life guards. The boys love the camp and the rabbis, Rabbi Kaufman and Rabbi Beenstock (Beenfield? Some one correct me) know the boys well and the boys like and respect them. The only problem is that it is very far to go to visit on Visiting Day.
Good luck with your decision.December 22, 2008 5:09 am at 5:09 am #878840

My sons, at different times, have attended Agudath (Catskills), Dora Golding (Poconos) and Mogen Av.
We’ve also heard rumors, probably caused by that rasha Madoff’s scandals, that Mogen Av was closing. I called the office today, they said everything is fine.December 23, 2008 1:59 am at 1:59 am #878848

Don’t have internet – what camp can you help with?December 23, 2008 4:42 am at 4:42 am #878851
just me … chances i know who your kids are (2 kids trained and worked as lifegaurds … not that difficult to figure out) … and if i do, they are both great guys.
that being said, I can answer specific questions, and all I have to say is positive (learning, rebbeim, sports, etc.)December 23, 2008 10:01 am at 10:01 am #878852Mrs. BeautifulMember

I heard that there was an ad in this weeks yated saying that mogen av closed and heller will be taking its place. Anyone can confirm?December 26, 2008 12:54 am at 12:54 am #878871
k surfer ill give u another hint….64,73 or maybe its 127??December 26, 2008 1:15 am at 1:15 am #878872qwertyuiopMember
qaws-ihrd the opposite that heller was closing and mogen av will be openDecember 26, 2008 2:13 am at 2:13 am #878873
dont have internet-nope i didnt leave u any message about balloons. were u a counslor this past summer?December 26, 2008 2:36 am at 2:36 am #878874

qaws and qwertyuiop: Heller and Mogen Av are both owned by the same people, and are combining. I’m not sure which name they’ll use, but I think the MA staff will run the junior division and the Heller staff the senior.December 26, 2008 5:18 am at 5:18 am #878876
dont have internet, were you a supervisor?December 26, 2008 5:42 am at 5:42 am #878877just meParticipant
Yoyo, I don’t think Bei Kayta is too materialistic, although these days are different from when I went to camp. Bei Kayta has refrigerators and gas grill for each bunk so the kids don’t bring their own. When you see boys leaving for camp these days, you’d think they are moving away from home!
DontHaveInternet: I don’t know if you know who my boys are, but I will agree with you that they are great guys. They have also been there since the Camp Heller days. Do I have to change my screen name now that you might know who I am? Do you REALLY know who I am just becaue you know my kids? 🙂December 26, 2008 5:46 am at 5:46 am #878878
internet- omg.. i think i know who u r… r u coming to the reunion?December 26, 2008 6:59 am at 6:59 am #878879
Qwertyuiop- where did you hear that from?December 26, 2008 7:05 am at 7:05 am #878880
I saw an ad in this weeks yated but it didn’t say anything about any of them closing from what i can recall..they just had one ad together!December 26, 2008 5:40 pm at 5:40 pm #878881
surfer—who do u think i am???
