First, looking for some commiseration. Anyone else not get accepted to the camps they applied to? Even if applied to more than one? Every time I told my daughter her face fell further and further.

Second, let's be practical. Which camps suited for a BY girl still have openings? There seem to be many more options for boys than girls plus for boys you often have a much longer time frame to apply.

Last year my daughters plans fell through and she was able to get into chaviva second half in April.

Also look into Lehava and Ahuva.

Good luck!

I had one camp that we didn't get into; officially we got wait-listed. We had her principal make a call and she got in a few weeks later. I never told dd she didn't get in the first time- I only told her about the second letter.

Going through the same thing. I had no idea camp was so impossible to get to into. My daughter is devastated and we have no idea what else to do at this point...

Brc is about $1600 including most expenses. It’s very hard to get into partially bec they have the number of beds and that is it. They start with returning campers then siblings then new campers in order of applications.

In general it feels like not that many new girls camps have opened. And most girls like to go a specific half.

All full as far as I understand:

BRC
Tehilla
Bnos
Ahuva
Chaviva
Maarava
Agudah Midwest
MTM

CBY is taking applications until mid January but it's hard to get in there.

I don't know about Tubby, Ohr Chedva or Raninu and my daughter doesn't know anyone going there.

Are all camps full for the whole summer? Do they always fill up this fast? My daughter was also hoping to go.

Most are full. Some depend on what grade but definitely apply yesterday to where she wants to go

A lot of camps are easier to get into second half than first half. Sternberg definitely still has room trip two

Thanks! Are most of these camps similarly priced?
