A Note About Yom Kippur & Camp Weekend: Rainbow Families would like to acknowledge that this year's Camp Weekend falls on the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur. We recognize that some of our families may not be able to attend as a result and sincerely apologize for this fact. Unfortunately, when securing this year's dates, this weekend was the only one available to us. Those who celebrate Yom Kippur and would still like to attend camp weekend are welcome and encouraged to bring their families observance to Camp Tockwogh. We welcome your input in how we can incorporate your celebration into our weekend together. We are in the process of securing 2018's dates early and will work to prevent any future conflicts with important religious observances and holidays. If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out. Thank you for your understanding.

Registration fees depend on your housing selecton $110-$160 per person (children and adults 4 years of age and up). Registration includes accommodations for two nights, all activities, and five meals.
