    Are the white shirts/black pants a required uniform to be worn by counselors at all times (besides at bedtime of course)?

    I hope so!

    Staff : you can change the life of each camper!

    It’s beautiful to see the happiness and enthusiasm of the staff, when the staff know in their gut that it is their responsibility and Zchus to give the Rebbe’s kinderlach a great enjoyable time, that is when you can successfully convey to the children a chassidishe varime chinuch and sense of genuine pride of being Lubavitcher Chassidim and to want to grow up to be the Rebbe’s Shluchim In today’s reality of the outside world it is more important then ever that the counselors and staff dress in white shirt uniform. It shows the campers the having a blast and… Read more »

    the first downfall of lubavitch is when we start thinking that we have two separate lives, that of yeshiva and then of bein hazmanin.
    quite obviously the rebbes rotzon was that yeshivas should continue throughout the year. if staff are needed, as mesiras nefesh, they are forced to close the seforim and help out. but Chas vsholom to say that camp is another legitimate mindset and we re allowed to be free there.
    maybe this is camps used to be a nurturing place for chassidishe values and recently…

    important to enforce our dress code as being chassidim is a full time thing, not just for school!

    White shirts

    While white shirts are important as a good example, that is not the deciding feature of a counselor. I would rather a caring counselor who makes sure that my kids needs are met over one that simply wears a white shirt.

    Love the pics

    Love the pics

    The clothing is not what these pics are for, enjoy seeing the smiles on the boys faces the achdus and unity, the fun and excitement these boys are looking forward to. Stop judging. Light blue dark blue white black red green it’s not what you should be commenting on. I’m enjoying looking at my son smiling.

    From the tone of your question, you seem quite miserable. Perhaps they are trying to emulate the Rebbe’s style of dress? Chabad-lubavtich can do without you ערב רב.
