Field trips are subject to change
On all field trips, campers are split into small groups with a Rosh (head counselor) or with a Junior and Senior counselor. Small campers to staff ratios allow staff to give personal attention to each child and have enough eyes to safely supervise all campers.
On most field trips, the camp director or assistant director will attend the trip to help supervise and manage the group.
**Parents are invited to attend some large or public field trips designated in the trip schedule.
A chaperone may be a parent or other family member, babysitter, or friend designated by the family. If you would like to chaperone, please email Camp Director. Chaperones pay for parking, and meet Camp Keshet at the field trip location. Admission into the trip is paid for by the camp. Chaperones volunteer to take children in small groups and to check in with the Director throughout the day. Each chaperone agrees to supervise his/her own child plus 1-2 friends, and no siblings may attend. Chaperones must commit to staying until the trip is completed and the buses return to TBA.
Keshet campers and staff are asked to adhere to the laws of Kashrut at all times, both on-site at TBA and when on field trips. We do not purchase or eat the food offered at any field trip location.
Counselors are CPR/First Aid trained and are familiar with TBA emergency procedures. While we do not anticipate or have ever had to do so, a “lost camper drill” will be practiced during the camp session. All staff have cell phones, and check in with the director(s) throughout the day, both in person and via phone. Camp Directors and Roshim (head counselors) have a group list with emergency contact information and first aid kits on them at all times.
On trips with rides and other attractions (Adventure City, Water Park, Santa Monica Pier) groups are split by size and campers desire to ride different levels of rides. (Small rides, medium rides, 'lazy river', big rides, etc). Campers wear Camp Keshet t-shirts all day on every trip, including water field trips (Seaside Lagoon and Water park).
A staff member will always escort campers into bathroom areas and all public restrooms that are not at TBA. No child enters a bathroom without a staff member standing in the washing area.
Thank You for trusting us with your most precious possession… your children! We look forward to a fun, memorable and safe summer at Camp Keshet.
