    After rejecting my children to the camp because I couldn’t afford the rate, about 13 years ago,(of course Montreal took us in a heartbeat), they still had the chutzpah to send us a letter requesting money to build a pool….what goes around comes around….it’s been 13 years and they haven’t been able to raise the funds yet.

    They’ve been collecting money for a pool for as far back as I can remember. I was a camper 19 years ago and they solicited my parents back then too.

    when i was going there 10 years ago they were selling tickets and raising money to build a pool – what happend to all the money?

    Or is this just another way for them to make more $$$ then the thousands they take for the 1 month they have a camp there?

    Id like to try to point something out to you two! To #2: Im sorry that you couldnt afford camp rates and your children didnt get to expirience an amazing summer in this awesome camp, but the fact is: If you dont have the money, then they, obviousely, cannot except your kids. But just because this is unfortunately true, that doesnt mean they cant send you a single solitary email, requesting for your financial help in order to build this pool in the Rebbe’s camp for everyone to enjoy. And the pool isnt even ready for this year so you… Read more »

    I was a camper there one year. It was my best summer in camp ever. It far surpassed the other camps i was at. I could say they definitly spend much more money on their campers that other camps.

    Camps are not just for shluchim's kids or the rich

    #5, B”H my kids had great summers in Montreal and in Emunah as well….at decent affordable rates…..Was Detroit only geared to the rich or the Shluchim? at the time yes….
    Just to let everone know, that the Mosdos that rejected our children for finacial reasons….and believe me, we were ready to pay, just not top dollar….did not do well, and some went under…..but those who took us in…..had much better mazel……like I said, what goes around comes around……..

    Oh my god!!!
