*KUPAH ​At Tavor, there is no camp store or canteen. Instead, campers pool their money into a kupah (common fund). The campers then work collaboratively to decide on special activities (roller-skating, ice-cream trips, etc.) that will be covered by the community's kupah. These funds also help stock a kupah cabinet with toothpaste, soap, shampoo, stamps, batteries, and other camp essentials.

 

Contributing to kupah is a truly wonderful way for campers to actualize camp values and work with each other to make decisions and take ownership of their camp community. 

 

Kupah will be indicated as an additional line item in your camp billing statement.

Bus Transportation

We are currently exploring the best options for transportation for the 2021 summer and will be in touch with our families with updates.

 

For now, we have removed the transportation options from the camper application, as currently, the most likely scenario is that families will need to bring their children to camp.

 

We will do everything possible to support families with transportation, with health and safety as our guide.
