What does the kids’ program look like?

Additionally, there will be two Head Counselors who will be responsible to lead a jam-packed, fun-filled, and motivational program.

How much does shabbaton cost?

Early Bird Pricing until January 31, 2022 Parents: $75 Children: $150 This includes lodging, meals, and Shabbaton costs for the entire weekend.

Where will I be staying?

You will be hosted by a warm and welcoming Jewish family in the iconic neighborhood of Crown Heights.

What security measures are being taken for the weekend?

CKids and the Chabad Security Commission are working closely with the New York Police Department, NYPD Counter Terrorism Unit, Port Authority, Transit Police, the Mayor's Office, and Public Security Commission to ensure the safety and security of all the participants at the CTeen convention. The Chabad Security Commission has tremendous experience in this field; most notably they provide the security for the International Conference of Chabad Shluchim, which hosts upwards of 5,000 people twice a year. All agencies have been made well aware of the entire weekend schedule and program ahead of time to ensure your safety. The NYPD will be on call with extra patrols and patrol stations present throughout the weekend. Private security will be employed for the entire weekend in addition to the police. Security will be stationed at every exit and entrance of each event, workshop, and trip, and security officers will be continuously patrolling Crown Heights and Manhattan, particularly during night time events. Kids will not be allowed to walk alone in Crown Heights and Manhattan without a chaperone. To comply with security measures, kids must wear their ID badge at all times.

Do I need to bring food?

No need to worry, all your meals are on us. Get ready for some second (and third) helpings of the quality kosher food for which New York is famous.

What is a chaperone?

Each child must be assigned to one chaperone. (A chaperone can have more than one kid assigned to them.) The chaperone is solely responsible for the child outside of the hours of the kids’ program. Additionally, they are responsible that the child is brought to the program and picked up every day. The chaperone can be either a parent, rabbi, rebbetzin, or another person assigned as chaperone.

What will a parent-chaperone do during the Shabbaton?

There will be a parent’s program taking place alongside the children's program. Exploring Crown Heights, hearing from world-renowned speakers, and special encounters and tours are just a few items on the schedule. Participants last year gave rave reviews. Some parts of the parent’s program will be intertwined with the kids’ program.

What does a rabbi/rebbetzin-chaperone do?

They will be responsible for drop off and pick up and are welcome to join the parent’s program.

What is the refund policy?

Our refund policy is as follows: During registration: Full refund minus 6% After registration closes: 50% refund Week of Shabbaton: No refund Medical reason: Full refund with a letter from your doctor

What should I pack?

Forget the tanks and shorts, get ready to brace frosty New York. Bring hats, scarves, gloves, and comfortable walking shoes. Don't forget to pack dressy Shabbat clothes.

What is the Covid-19 policy?

We will be following all CDC and State of NY guidelines. As guidelines are constantly changing, we will be announcing our policy January 15th.
