  1. Thank you Totty Matzav for letting us know the basics about leaving ample time. this proves the sick nature, condescending tone and above it all attitude of the writers here . Nebach what a little power can do to have you treat klal yisrael like babies and little children.

  2. You are all nuts!! I told my daughter I’ll see her in August, sent her some goodies and now I don’t have to fight visiting day/July 4 traffic!

  3. Make the trip for the counselors they need your tips. I know you pay thousands of dollars for camp and it’s ridiculous that you have to tip so much. Take it up with the camp not the counselors and jcs, they rely on those tips. The camps pay them pennies.

  4. went up on 7/4/13. called the camp up that i cannot sit in 5 hour traffic.

    planned ahead and didn’t fall behind.

  5. I told my children that if they are old enough to go to a sleepaway camp, they are old enough to enjoy the whole trip with out us schlepping up. Tips: Its the Camp’s responsibility to pay their employees!

  6. its so sad thatthis is what you choose to publish. how about obeying the law ? how about safety? no we only care about tickets…busha
