We are very excited to be continuing our on-line Summer Services through your CampInTouch Portal. Every parent has their own account where they will be able to email their child and view photos regularly during the summer.
We encourage you to log in to your CampInTouch Portal before the start of the summer so you can familiarize yourself with the summer services available and ensure that your account is ready to go!
To access your CampInTouch Portal, click the CampInTouch button on our website

Within your CampInTouch Portal, when you click on the email link, the system will guide you through the process of purchasing “CampStamps” to send and receive emails as often as you’d like throughout the session to your child(ren).
Each email sent will use a certain number of CampStamps based on the selections you make. Standard emails without add-ons (e.g. Stationary, Smart Words & Sudoku), as well as e-letters (the email response from your child(ren)) use 1 CampStamp each. Upon purchasing CampStamps you will also be able to gift them to your guests, however they will also be able to purchase their own CampStamps upon logging in.
CampMinder encourages parents to print off e-letters (email response pages) before camp and send them in their child(ren)’s duffel bag. There is no fee to print the e-letter pages — there is only a fee of 1 CampStamp once the e-letter is sent back to you.
Like past years, emails will be printed and delivered to campers the day after you send it (with the exception of Shabbat).
E-Letters from Campers
Campers are required to write home 2x per week. Some will write “snail mail,” others will write via E-Letters.
Please note that E-Letters will take at least 48 hours for parents to receive a reply from campers. E-Letter stationery is given out to campers the day after parents send their email. Campers must write the note, turn it in as one of their two letters home per week, and only then is it faxed into the system.
E-Letters MUST be written in blue or black ink – anything other than that will not go through when it gets sent back.
