Mobile phones usage policy

In order to provide a unique camp experience and fun for the campers, Camp Dror has successfully led a policy regarding the use of cell phones for several years. On the first day of camp all cellphones will be collected and safeguarded by the camp staff. On Fridays, campers will receive their cellphones for a few hours in order to call family and friends before Shabbat. In the event of an emergency, campers will be contacted with the assistance of the camp staff. The camp directors are always available. In addition, you can contact the camp's Project Director at 050-202-2085. Please do not send additional cellphones with your child to be used secretly.
