The possession of alcohol, marijuana or narcotics is strictly prohibited at Habonim Dror Camp Moshava. If a camper is in possession of or uses drugs or alcohol, the camper will be sent home immediately, at the parents' expense. Smoking by campers is prohibited.
Habonim Dror Camp Moshava reserves the right to remove any camper from our community who violates the following guidelines:
Each child must be examined by a physician before coming to camp. It is especially important that the tetanus booster be up to date. Oral polio vaccine and measles vaccine (unless the child has had measles) are required. We must have a completed medical form and a parent’s authorization form for each camper by May 15. Campers without medical forms may not board the bus to camp.
The camp nurse is at camp full time throughout the summer. A local physician is also available to see any of our campers as necessary. We use the services of a local critical care clinic or local hospital as required, ensuring proper medical attention for all campers. If your child is ill and/or requires serious medical attention, camp staff will contact you. Please inform us whenever you will be out of town during the summer so that we will always know how to reach you in case of emergency.
A designated staff person will collect your child’s medication at the bus stop before leaving to camp. Label all medication clearly with your child’s full name, the prescription dosage and the name of the medication. If your child must take any medication, even vitamins, indicate this on the medical form. Be sure to send enough medications for the duration of the session.
Medical insurance is not provided by camp. Your medical insurance policy information should be on file with us including: insurance company name, policy and ID numbers and the address to which we should send claims. A photocopy of your child’s medical card, front and back, must be provided to us in order for your child to receive proper and immediate medical attention.
Please take care of all routine examinations and appointments (dentist, ophthalmologist, optometrist and pediatrician) before camp begins.
During long overnight trips, campers who cannot participate because of illness will be sent home for the duration of the trip.
Habonim Dror Camp Moshava takes great care in providing nutritious and varied kosher meals to our campers. Vegetarian meals are also provided. Food is part of the fun, such as when campers get treats for birthday celebrations, holidays and other special occasions.
Moshava does not allow food to be sent to campers for reasons of Kashrut and health standards. We ask that parents, grandparents and well-meaning friends follow this policy.
As described in the section on kupa (community sharing), campers need no personal money while at camp. Money to be used for personal travel at the end of the summer may be left with the Executive Director for safekeeping.
Habonim Dror Camp Moshava is a safe space for children to learn and grow. We believe that a thriving community is one that acknowledges and embraces diverse identities-age, race, ethnicity, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, nationality, religion, disability and socioeconomic status-explores the intersections of those identities, and encourages children to be their truest selves.
Our programming seeks to appreciate the value that each camper brings to camp-because of the individual, the community is stronger, because of the community, the individual is stronger.
We welcome all campers and families. We know camp can be a difficult environment for some, and we encourage you to contact us if you'd like to discuss how to make it a rewarding and optimal experience for your child.
Habonim Dror Camp Moshava is a safe space for children to learn and grow. We do not tolerate harassment, intimidation, or bullying of any kind. We expressly prohibit gestures--be they verbal, physical, or psychological--that inspire fear and/or demean an individual or group based on actual or perceived age, race, ethnicity, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, nationality, religion, disability, socioeconomic status, physical appearance, or political views. Though incidents of this type are extremely rare at Mosh, we encourage our campers to report any alleged acts of bullying or harassment, and we pledge to investigate these allegations fully and take appropriate action.
