Can I get a refund if my child no longer wants to go on camp but I have already paid and signed him up?
It is our policy that we do not offer refunds unless medical reasons have resulted in your child not being able to come on camp at the last moment.
Are the junior chanichim separate to Intermediates and Senior chanichim?
All chanichim are located on the same campsite, however, there are two distinct areas.
All chanichim will be able to see each other on camp.
How will my children be getting to and from camp?
All chanichim are expected to be at Leibler Yavneh College on the 1st of July. Buses are expected to leave at 9:30am and travel to the campsite.
My child is in year 3, how long should I be sending them to camp for?
Most year 3 chanichim go to camp on Monday with many coming home on Thursday. There will be a bus for year 3s leaving on Thursday at 10am from the campsite expected to return to Leibler Yavneh College at around 11:45am. If your child would like to stay for the entirety of camp, that is highly recommended as well, however, we encourage you to speak to your child's Madrichim beforehand.
My child is in year 12, and would like to come up for some of the camp, what do you recommend?
For the best experience of camp, we recommend that your child comes up for the full time. However, we do understand the demands of VCE and therefore there will be a bus for year 12s leaving from Leibler Yavneh College to camp on Thursday at 11:30am, returning Sunday.
Do I need to pay full fees for a child in year 3 or 12?
If your child is not staying the whole time of camp, we do not expect you to pay full fees.
There are part time fees for both year 3 and year 12.
What if my child can only come for some of the camp?
We highly recommend that your child comes up for the full time of camp, as this will ensure the best experience and the most reward. However, if there are special circumstances, we ask you to speak with the Rosh Machane, and they will consider it based on the situation.
