I went to Chedvah for the past ten years and I just wanted to say thank you to Rabbi and Rasie Levi (the directors) for the best ten summers of my life. Chedvah was and forever will be my life. I have such fond memories... Every time I look back and remember, I cry - tears of happiness for the good times, and tears of sadness because I am no longer going back. Chedvah helped shape the very person I am today. It helped me grow in numerous ways and helped me create friendships that I will hold onto forever. The gratitude I have is boundless and i will never forget... Chedvah, my home away from home. I want to wish the Levi's much success on the opening of their new camp, Ohr Chedvah, and to all of you that plan to go- I can only imagine the amazing time that you will have :) RID: 44520

     6/25/12   1     1     1     1     1   Chedvah is the WORST camp ever. They make u wear skirts and knee socks and cover ur collarbone and elbows. Y can t u just wear shorts and short sleeves? There's nothing wrong about that. all they care about in camp is tzniut. They don't even care about the campers. They never do normal activities- only like steal the salami and red rover. U can even wear flip flops! It's the smallest camp ever and this yr is their last summer. They probably have like 20 kids left. Never go to that camp. You will regret it. The food there is horrible. They have no courts- no tennis, basketball, baseball etc. they r trying to make it into a lakewood camp. They never take u on trips. U just sit in ur bunk and eat. They check ur iPods for English music and if u have then they take it away for the rest of the summer. RID: 41422

Click to report rating    1/4/12   2     2     2     2     2   i think chedvah would be a better camp if we maybe got some ropes course, and new activites....also,make the camp atmosphere be more active! we lay around all day and all campers geighn at least 5 pounds a summer!!...also, chedvah should take their campers on new trips, and get new ideas.

 8/27/11   1     1     1     1     1   WORST CAMP EVER. The staff- dont even get me started! They are the meanest people I've ever seen in my life! They should NOT be dealing with kids! The attitude and atmosphere is horrible and extremely negative, no one goes to the- lame- activities. EVER. Activities literally consist of red-rover and steal the salami. Theres a kneesox patroller, which brings a negative feeling to the kneesox rule. The camp shrinks every year. This year there was legit not even 80 campers in the camp!! This camp turns even the good things into bad things. Why should singing on shabbos be turned into an event where everyone gets shushed because someone is off-key and that person gets publicly embaressed (one example). If u even talk to a male staff kid you get yelled at. the food is awful and spoiled. DONT COME HERE. IF U DO END UP COMING HERE, U'LL ONLY BE HERE FOR ONE YEAR BECAUSE IT'LL END UP CLOSING IN THE NEXT 2 YEARS RID: 36841

Click to report rating    2/14/10   5     5     4     5     4   i was in chedva for 6 years- i had the best bunk in the world, we had so much fun, still keepin in touch- and NOT jappy @ all. i was really lucky, cuz unfortunately, the younger grades are really shallow and snobby. thats why i left before i had 2 b their staff. the head staff are incredible, and they do a great job. the only prob is the girls- they make the camp not really condusive to spiritual growth. anyway, i must thank Chedva for a fabulous 6 summers- i miss it so much! anyone who rated badly: it must be cuz of the grlz, cuz the camp itself is truly amazing RID: 32181

Click to report rating    3/15/09   5     5     5     5     5   Any one who is saying chedvah is bad is soo wrong! i've been going to camp since i was 8 and i love it! The rumor is that it is "jappy" but raninu is no better! and no one cares if u dont wear brand names, just some ppl do wear them... no one cares if u dont though! and the older kids all just wear long skirts and camp sweatshirts! i think chedvah is by far the best camp in the mountains!

Click to report rating    9/1/07   1     3     1     1     1   this camp is horrible. Every year a few hundred kids leave, the camp is getting smaller and smaller by the minute. This camp is the same thing over and over and over again. We go to Dorkey Park and the mall (those are the two trips we go on the whole summer) and then there is an occasional "bowling" day where we walk to the bowling alley and then go back to hedva on the bus. On the way to davening the knee sock patroller checks to make sure every girl is wearing knee socks. What type of a camp is this? Its worse than the school i go to!! There are activities, but does anoyone go? NO, everyone just sits on their bed and does nothing all day!! The counslers are especially rude. I have never been to such a horrible camp in my entire life. They do not get anything new in the camp, the swing set is the same swing set they have had for the past 50 something years... RID: 14815
