Here at YKY we take our no-smartphone policy seriously. First and foremost we cannot take responsibility for what teens today access online either alone or with others. We believe that parents do not want their children exposed to information that they disapprove of, regardless of how many filters may be on the phone. Additionally, we are in touch with Mesivtas and maintain their smartphone policy requests.
Understandably, when campers have smartphones they are preoccupied with the phone, Whatsapp, social media etc. and miss the whole amazing present summer experience!
During the summer we will have a special WhatsApp group when pictures and updates will be posted daily, so you can see what is happening with your son, and see the experiences he’s having. Once a week he will get his smartphone for an Erev Shabbos call.
Camp will also have phones available for campers to call home with.
