FAQs

What should my camper bring to JEEP?

Please label all items that you want to come home again!

Daily:

  • Sun hat
  • Jacket (for chilly mornings)
  • Water bottle
  • Lunch, if staying past morning

Weekly: (can be left at camp)

  • Towel
  • Change of clothes
  • Emergency medication (EpiPen, etc.)
  • Bedding (full day campers only, for rest time)

Please do not bring:

  • Toys (Beyblade, Pokemon cards, leggos, stuffed animals, etc.)
  • Electronics
  • Peanuts or peanut products

What are your allergy/food protocols?

Allergies: Similar to HSPK, JEEP is always peanut-free. All lunches brought from home must adhere to this policy and sharing food is not allowed. Other allergies are similarly accommodated on a week-to-week basis based on the information provided in campers' registration paperwork. Food intolerances/sensitivities are also accommodated with alternate options. Our director, Addie Cutler, has a degree in Nutrition and Food Science and is very familiar with reading allergen warnings on packaging, preventing cross-contamination, etc. Our director and counselor(s) are CPR/First Aid certified, including administration of epinephrine medications. Campers with anaphylactic allergies are required to have these medications at camp daily. 

Health: At JEEP we strive to provide campers with fun, healthy foods. Snacks include a wide range of fruits and vegetables and will always be vegetarian. Sweets are given occasionally, not daily. On Fridays for Shabbat Oneg (a Shabbat treat!) afternoon campers receive a frozen treat. If you prefer, you may provide an alternative. When we do baking activities (from scratch of course!), we send sweets home with campers instead of serving them at camp so that your family can make decisions about when they are consumed.

What does it mean that my camper must be fully potty trained?

Our littlest campers must be out of diapers during the day. We do ask that all campers have a change of clothes at camp in case of accidents regardless of potty training status. 

What age is JEEP really designed for?

As a compliment to HSPK, we primarily create programming for ages 3-6. However, the camp setting gives us the unique ability to adjust activities for older campers! We have many older siblings and HSPK alumnae who attend (and love) JEEP. 

How messy is JEEP Camp?

While we take precautionary measures such as washable paint, smocks, and thorough hand washing, we cannot always prevent the mess that comes with playing, cooking, and creating outdoors! Please do not send your camper in special outfits or clothes that you are concerned about keeping 100% clean. We will do our best to provide advance warning when we plan to have especially messy days!
