Dear Valued Pali Customers,
Recently, a story about the practices and procedures here at Pali Institute were called into question by someone who inaccurately accused us of placing male staff members in cabins with our female students/campers.
This was based on unfounded assumptions by what we believe to be a concerned parent and their misunderstanding of the information we did provide.
Most of the news and media outlets that ran this story or picked it up in the days following its initial release failed to reach out to Pali to clarify this information prior to airing or posting these articles. That is not only irresponsible but detrimental to our business and employees. It impacts the trust we have developed with our customers and calls in to question our integrity as a business. These are all things we do not take lightly and hold dearly.
Pali is an equal opportunity employer and is required to adhere to all applicable federal, state, and local laws while providing a safe and inclusive place for everyone.
The safety and well-being of our guests and employees are of the utmost importance, always has been and always will be.
Please know that we will not place children in cabins with staff members that are not the same sex assigned at birth.
Our guests, visitors, and customers here at Pali are essential to us, and continuing to have the pleasure of running a business like ours has been a lifelong pursuit and dream of our owner Andy Wexler. He is a family man who wants everyone to feel welcome here at Pali, be safe, and above all have fun!
Please know we value the trust you place in us year after year and look forward to having the opportunity to serve you now and in the future.
Thank you for your continued support and patience. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to let us know.
