Camp Ruach Hatorah: We’re Unable to Open for the 2022 Season

Earlier today, TLS reported that multiple boys camps in Lakewood will not be opening for the 2022 season.

Camp Yachad stated they were one of the camps not opening due to not being able to find a suitable location.

This evening, Camp Ruach Hatorah told TLS they will also not be opening this coming summer.

“We regret to notify you, that due to construction on our campus (Toras Aharon), we’re unable to open CRH for the 2022 season,” the camp told TLS. “We wish we could have found other facilities that would fit our amazing CRH program, but we were unable (oh, how we tried!). We will miss all our incredible staff and campers terribly!”

The camp says they hope to reopen in 2023.

“Looking forward to reuniting in beautiful new facilities in Summer 2023 with Hashem’s help.”

    So it seems like yeshivas are doing well, quite a few are doing renovations. Thanks to the government handing out money, food boxes etc…. While the regular people ( the ones who don’t get government handouts ) are really struggling due to rising costs. Just a bit of irony.

  • CRH for years says:

    Oh my! This is sad. Will there be another maybe smaller camp opening ? Such good staff there they need to do something!

  • A reader says:

    The whole camp news is manipulative news to create hype among parents thus allowing camps to freely raise the prices. No business complains to the public when they are not making money regardless of the vital services it’s providing for the community. If your business is not generating profits feel free to cut costs, raise prices or shut down and others will step in.
    No need to create a scenario where the parents are looked at as the beneficiary and thus creating room to open the doors for insane camp pricing and even maybe “raize it” campaigns will be next.
    Perhaps the lakewood scoop can help the community by curbing these articles that clearly are causing added unnecessary stress .

  • cuzisaidso says:

    this is interesting because the previous post claimed that the day camps were closing due to rising costs, but this post is attributing it to something else. There is definitely some discrepancy here. As for the rising costs issue, many have suggested scaling down and then the camp owners are claiming that you cant cut out entertainment and trips. suggestion: how about cutting out the other stuff like giving out knicknacks every single day that end up in the garbage at the end of the day, and haveing a custom built camp mascot, license plate frames, magnets, slush, cotton candy… etc etc those don’t really add that much to the day and i’d be happy to save 100 dollars a kid by cutting this all out.

  • Enough already says:

    I feel like a lot of articles are of this nature: create hysteria
    Come on, we can do better than this
    If crh or any other camp can’t open – just send a letter to your camper list, and move on, this is not befitting of a community such as ours

    @A reader. On the nose 100%!!!

  • Mike says:

    CRH why not reach out to Camp Yachad, seems like their space is available for this summer?

    • tanchum says:

      Yachads usually in Orchos Chaim which is also doing construction.

      • neighbors says:

        Correction- Yachads regular is NOT Orchos Chaim. They used YOC for 2 years but its never was supposed to be their “regular”

  • SP says:

    If their costs went up by $100/kid they raised it by $200/kid. Camps are not the victim here.

  • Mom says:

    @ a reader. A 100 percent couldn’t agree more!!

  • missing Reb yosef ZTL says:

    we gotta keep CRH open in order to keep the memory of Reb Yosef Weiss ZTL alive. He was the founder of the camp and ran it Be’emunah for many years.
