My daughter is in bnos esther malka and I feel like nachlas is probably a little more to the right.

I sent last year and I’m sending back. My 2 daughters are in Nachlas. Mrs fisher was definitely the draw last year. I honestly didn’t find them to be any more special than other camps but that’s were their friends were going ..
your not missing out, apply to the next place

Yes I was rejected too and was told that the campers wear tights and that she prefers the heimesh chassidish schools. If that is the case then most of the lakewood schools don’t fit in. But there are so many options here in lakewood. So we not crying over this. Their loss!
Edit to add that I send to nachlas

Seriously? We are very yeshivish but my daughters wear socks in the summer. I send to bais faiga, are they rejecting bf girls as well? Whatever no one in my daughters classes are going so they refuse to go regardless. I wish they would get gymnastics lessons in camp though.

My DD used to teach the gymnastics in a local daycamp. If you want real gymnastics, you will not likely get it in a daycamp. You need to send to a well-equipped place, with a small enough group, sufficient staff to address different levels.... to get real gymnastics.

I’m so confused. My daughter definitely doesn’t wear tights in the summer and neither do her friends who are going…

So many nachlas girls are going and they don't wear tights and it's not a heimish school.

She said the rule is knee socks but most will be in tights as she is attracting that clientel. Could be she said so I shouldn’t be upset that I was rejected. Idk. But that’s what was said.

Agree with you on this. And renana is in a small building definitely no big gym there.

Right I brought this up to her as I know ppl that were there last year. She was like this year we are looking to change it a bit. The director is heimish I believe.
Maybe call her to discuss this.

Im team Dollhouse all the way. No attitude from the administration, excellent program, and fantastic wholesome clientele. And I've tried other camps.
Perhaps one should be more open minded when considering camps for their kids, vs following the sheeple. Its out of control in Lakewood.

Mrs Fischer is heimish so maybe that’s who they want, but my daughters year (going into fourth grade) is going to be at least 1/3 nachlas girls I think … none of them will be in tights. Maybe it’s going to be nachlas girls (bc they all went last year) and then a bunch of Bais Rochel , lol, interesting mix !!!

They go to Bnos Hadassa. Perhaps the crowd was heimish but it was definitely not an all-tights crowd last year.

Good point but I find it so hard to take them to classes. If it’s in camp they get a bit of practice in. But it’s more important that they’re with their friends

Kids want to go where their friends are going and often that means their neighbors. I don’t think that’s following the sheeple. Why should they need to go to a camp based on which schools they’re in.

So I’ve sent my 2 girls to RENANA last summer and I’m sending back again.
It’s the most well run camp in Lakewood
Being that it’s a talent camp the kids are busy all day not eating slush like in the other camps…
I’ve sent to a few others…. The crowd is very nice mix of frum and torahdik from a variety of schools in lkwd. I know the director is selective with the clientele… that’s what attracts so many ppl… I know my kids will have a very wholesome summer!! We can’t wait for another amazing summer
P.S sounds like ppl are just insulted that they didn’t get in…

If your kid wasn't accepted to daycamp, would you feel good if someone said you were "just insulted" that you didn't get in.....?

(I think it's ridiculous that daycamps are doing social engineering already.....what next.)
