Travel by Car
Camp would like as many families as possible to drive their children to camp for the 2021 summer. This will allow the mitigation strategies that each family is following before camp to stay intact.
Campers who are being driven to camp should arrive at Camp Tel Yehudah between 10 am and 2 pm EDT on first day of the Bloc. We will be scheduling staggered arrival times for all campers arriving by car and will be sending out additional information about our COVID-safe drop-off procedures.
Parents/Guardians picking up campers should arrive at camp between 10 am and 12 pm EDT on the last day of the appropriate Bloc. We will be scheduling staggered departure times for departures as well as information about our COVID-safe departure procedures.
