(If we chose Sternberg, I doubt any of her classmates would be there, as they are all applying to more "yeshivish" camps.) Ty!


What camps are they applying to? I've always found it helpful to send DD to camp with a friend or two....are those camps possible considerations?

Is camp bais Yakov yeshivish or a mix?

I'm in lakewood; what elementary schools is it most similar to?

It's a mix though there's a strong yeshivish crowd...but definitely not everyone.

My girls went with lots of friends from BF. When they got to high school, there were not as many girls there as in their high school (BK) though they were not the only ones....but more BY and Bais Shaindel than BK.

Chayalle, thank you

my dd is in bnos brocha and I would be considering bk for high school when the time comes, Beh.

We're pretty frum but culturally anything but yeshivish, def not part of bais shaindel or bais Yakov crowd.

I'm really hesitant, I can't send her with friends as that half is full. She's gonna be disappointed if I say no, but im really not sure

Aguda Toronto has girls very down to earth.

Bnos ruach Chaim fills up very quickly

My daughter went to tubby last year and found the girls were unsophisticated not very fancy (we're oot), but all families are either super yeshivish or leaning to a bit chasdidish

My eighth grader went there last year and loved it, but she's really a very low maintenance kid. It's a mix of very yeshivish and somewhat chassidish, based on what I saw on visiting day. It's not very sophisticated as far as activities, good old low key fun.

Petty rigid as far as rules, they barely call home among other things.
