  • Follow Along Mitzvah Corps Summer 2019!

    Welcome families! This summer, your teen will embark on the journey of a lifetime with Mitzvah Corps! Our teams in New York, New Jersey and Washington are working tirelessly to prepare for another amazing summer! As you prepare for the departure of your teen, we want to take a moment to share with you how you can stay in touch and share in their experience this summer.

    Blogs. We will be posting here on our blog (mitzvahcorps.org/blog). These postings, written by our Directors, Program Staff, or Participants, will talk about day-to-day itineraries, updates, or general happenings on Mitzvah Corps.

    This also provides you with a convenient central location for summer content and updates. You will find blog posts and videos that are available to the public.  When you access photos from the menu bar, login will be required to protect your privacy.  Login to your account is simple, as described below.

    Photos. Every parent has their own CampInTouch account. This system will allow families to see up to date photos from the summer. Among many other things, parents will now have the ability to email any photos to friends and family, as well as buy photos and other photo gifts directly from the website.

    How to login?
    Click on the link (https://urjteentravel.campintouch.com/) and use the same login email and password that you used for teen’s registration. If you forget your password, please email mitzvahcorps@urj.org.

    Can I add additional family members?
    Yes, you are able to invite your own guests, so they too can have the ability to view photos and email your teen(s). To add a guest, log on to your CampInTouch account and click the “Guest Accounts” link under “Online Community”. Because privacy and security are important, please do not share your password with family members.

    Facebook and Instagram. We will be posting on Facebook and Instagram with Photos of the Day, as well as sharing links to our blog posts.  “Like” us on Facebook: facebook.com/urjmitzvahcorps and “Follow” us on Instagram: @urjmitzvahcorps.
