my friend is going to be a mothers helper in raninu, are mother helpers considered nerdy????????? thnx!!!!!!!June 10, 2012 3:29 pm at 3:29 pm #958527PosterMember
omgalwayz, Depends how confident she is. I remember this adorable girl that was a mothers helper in camp faygah. She dressed with it, had a lot of friends and loved her job. She didnt walk around shlumping while pushing a carriage. Its a great way to be able to get to camp whe money is tight.
Pple do not such cool things but if they are confident with themselves it doesnt come across nerdy.June 10, 2012 5:19 pm at 5:19 pm #958528
No definetly not, just say that shes trying it out, raninu mother helpers come FREE!June 15, 2012 12:03 am at 12:03 am #958529
Ah i have a questionnn. one of my really awesome close friends is gonna be working as a mothers helper this summer. but she doesnt know anybody going there, shes extremely outgoing and is sweet and has a huge sense of humor, and an all together amazing friend. no matter what i tell her, shes still a little nervous that she wont meet anybody there. you have experience, what do you think??June 15, 2012 1:02 pm at 1:02 pm #958531
reminds me of my first year, i came from the middle of no where and did not know anyone!i was really worried, but raninu is a VERY out going camp and all the girls (well except the kids whoose parents work there, and they think they own the whole world)are very nice! after 2 years i know practically half the camp! and as they say, all klal yisroel is connected! i met many people related/friends of people from my city!June 19, 2012 3:56 pm at 3:56 pm #958532
Ok. So is raninu a place where you are like judged depending on what brands of clothing you wear, or how many friends you make?June 19, 2012 4:10 pm at 4:10 pm #958533
no, not nessissarily i didnt wear any brands like juicy and hello kitty, and i was fine! if you just look friendly and nice youll make plenty of friends!June 19, 2012 5:49 pm at 5:49 pm #958534its a chilled matzevMember
Totally not! it does not matter what you wear. Everyone is very friendly! by the way i was a chatzotzrah jc also…when it was year 11 in camp!
shnitzlalltheway- which half is your friend going this summer? I’m going 2nd half!June 19, 2012 6:40 pm at 6:40 pm #958535
shnitzalltheway- not at all!- when ppl call it jappy they *don’t* mean that 1)everyone is 2)the kids are mean! everyone get’s along and no one judges anyone based on what they wear- even ages don’t matter! my campers had friend in age groups 2 years older! and i was friends with kids a few yrs younger too!-
its a chilled matzev- do you have a blue sweatshirt that says “it’s a chilled matzav!” ? i was a major that yr! –June 20, 2012 4:02 am at 4:02 am #958536
mods- please dont’t post this post edited
btw- mods are under appreciated!June 20, 2012 4:28 am at 4:28 am #958538
mods-thank youJune 20, 2012 5:54 am at 5:54 am #958539
its a chilled matzev- i think she is going both, but im not sure. what are you going as??
okay thanks guys! ill send her to this site and hopefully she’ll be a little more excited!June 20, 2012 12:57 pm at 12:57 pm #958540
Ya definitely and I know literally half of RANINU, I would have ppl I had never seen in my life come up to me and say ” you like nice, what’s your name?” and theses kids were anywhere from 9-18 trust me, age is just a number!June 21, 2012 6:05 pm at 6:05 pm #958542
so shopping613, you arent going this year?
also, ok is it a bad idea if she goes both halves and doesnt know anybody to begin with?June 21, 2012 6:06 pm at 6:06 pm #958543
what are mods?June 21, 2012 6:44 pm at 6:44 pm #958544
no i cnt go back unfortunately, id say why but thats private info! it is not a bad idea, but she may get homesick! mods are the people that make sure nothing inappropriate is posted onto this site, they look through every post before it gets put online and if they think a post is too long to read through, or unfit you will not see it online!June 21, 2012 7:07 pm at 7:07 pm #958545gregger246Member
no not at all!! i went my first year (a long time ago)no knowing a soul, and i made my best friends there, and there still one of my closest friends today! also if you stay whole summer youll for sure befriend a couple of kids who are also staying whole summer, so she would know ppl 2nd halfJune 21, 2012 8:09 pm at 8:09 pm #958546hey1234Member
its a chilled matzav- what bunk where u a jc for in year 11??June 22, 2012 12:16 am at 12:16 am #958547
haha well thats a good idea to have mods.
alrightyyy then! i will let her know that raninu definitely is not a scary place after all 😀
oh and also whats the best staff job someone could get?June 22, 2012 3:37 am at 3:37 am #958548
hmmm…well it depends, a counsler and jc is most enjoyable cuz you still get to do activities but it still costs money…..but if your looking in high up in the ranks then a head counsler is better, of course you have to be much more crazy, and willing to dress up and embaress yourself every day 🙂June 22, 2012 4:30 pm at 4:30 pm #958549
kk so like is junior specialty or waterfront or even ropes course fun?June 23, 2012 7:22 pm at 7:22 pm #958550
Well ropes you need to be strong to hold up the kids all day on a harness, boats you need lifegaurdkng or wtvr and water/boats expireince!June 24, 2012 5:08 am at 5:08 am #958551
alrightyyyy sounds like fun!!! hahah sorryyy just one more thing i think is good to ask, what types of things do you have to pack? just so she has a heads upJune 24, 2012 10:59 am at 10:59 am #958552
Shes going to raninu? They give you a list, if she hasn’t gotten one then she should contact them, its ok I don’t mind answering questions! Any more?June 24, 2012 5:47 pm at 5:47 pm #958553

But idk wat it’s gonna be like this year bc if the other camp that closed and all of their campers are coming to Raninu..June 10, 2013 3:53 pm at 3:53 pm #958560

Ooooooh, someone’s a staff kid!
Lol, the ones in my age group were….they were like to me
” we dont like you, and we can do wtvr we want, and if you do something we dont like, we’ll grt you kicked out of camp….”
Whatevs, i dunno, you just seem to click with me
chalil 2011June 11, 2013 12:57 am at 12:57 am #958563

The time i got locked in the bathroom from 1-3 am…..i almost died in there and the door handle fell out!!!!! So crazy!!!!! The handynman had to get me out!!!!June 12, 2013 5:52 am at 5:52 am #958568
Omg that’s nuts!!! lol that reminds me of the time that we stole our counselors phone and pretended that we flushed it down the toilet..didn’t give it back to her till many hrs later!! that was many yrs ago tho we were really immature!June 12, 2013 7:05 am at 7:05 am #958569
Myvcounsler duped us into thinking she got engaged on her day off, she even had a bracelet that looked real! And showed us a pic of the guy!June 12, 2013 3:57 pm at 3:57 pm #958570
I remember that!!! I don’t remember who it was though, just that the entire camp was saying that a counselor got engaged, and then other people were saying that it was a rumor!!
