For the parents that don't want to send but send anyway because of peer pressure? So for these sorry people that can't do what they feel is right because of what others do you are happy if everyone else loses out?

For those parents who are forced to send their daughter to seminary because the world decided that if the girl didn't go, there must be something wrong with her and no one will date her.
I'm not who you think I am.

How many seminary age children have you been through or are you just 23 yourself?

Do you know anyone who went to Seminary in the US, or skipped altogether, and still got married? I can make a list.

My wife attended Sem in the US, as did all of my sisters and sisters-in-law. For some reason my father preferred it ;). All married :)

I can make you a list with hundreds.

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Could be it was discussed already I didn't see.
Just wondering is sleep away camp mostly a Jewish thing?

No
I thought most camps are jewish even if not frum and the rest are religious or boy scouts.

what did come into play with Cuomo was that most of the non Jewish and non frum camps had already cancelled by the time Cuomo made the decision so in essence he was really fighting with only the frum camps

Jews can handle (or are used to) doing things at the last minute

They don't see counting education through the summer a critical necessity. And yes we think camp is a part of education system.
Having kids definitely teenagers home all summer is a major problem.
