Dear Unit 4 Families,
One of our most popular events at Camp Yomi is the OVERNIGHT and we have great news… the second Unit 4 Overnight is just around the corner! Your camper’s OVERNIGHT will take place on Thursday, August 2. We will enjoy the pool all to ourselves for an extra swim in the late afternoon. Our magical day will continue into the early evening with fun-filled activities, a Kosher barbecue dinner and s’mores with songs by a campfire. Our fun continues the next morning with an additional swim! Breakfast the next morning is also provided, along with lunch on Friday. Campers return home the next day at the normal bus site and scheduled time.
Overnight programming is an optional activity, though well over 90% of our campers choose to participate. There is no need to call if your child will be joining us; however, please notify your child’s Unit Supervisor by Wednesday, August 1st at 5pm if your child wishes to return to your usual drop-off site at the regular time (5:00pm) on Thursday. You can reach Maddy at firstname.lastname@example.org .
What to bring on the overnight (we recommend sending everything in a duffle bag or a second backpack – wheeled suitcases are not ideal for the campgrounds terrain) :
- Sleeping Bag (Required)
- Insect Repellent
- Long Sleeve Shirt & Long Pants
- Change of clothes for the following day, including swimsuits for three Thursday and three Friday swims
- Rain gear (optional)
- Your enthusiasm for a great night with camp friends J
- DO NOT send electronics (including cell phones) or candy
If your child takes medication that needs to be administered to your child while on the overnight, you should give the medication to your child’s bus counselor Thursday morning. Please include written authorization from the parent/guardian along with the name of the medication, condition for which the medication is being used, the required dosage and frequency with which it is to be dispensed. All medication must be in the original prescription container.
If you have any questions or if we can be of any assistance prior to this event, please contact the camp office at (212) 415-5643 ext.2.
