How can you assure that other campers and staff aren’t sick upon arrival at camp?

Will the format of camp look different from previous summers?

Can I bring my own food into camp?

How will the camp program adhere to social distancing?
(A) Campers will “travel” with their group and enjoy their daily activities. Large gatherings will be prohibited, program activities will be limited to individual groups and lunch will be served picnic style to avoid congestion in the lunch tent.

How will camp handle the sharing of supplies?
(A) In any “hands on” activities, if the CDC recommends, campers will be provided gloves that will be worn and disposed of after each activity.

This is only if the CDC allows these types of activities (to be determined).

My three grandchildren, Sadie, Charlie and Reid attended week 7. Just wanted to drop you a note to say thanks for taking such good care of them. They had a great week and enjoyed the JCC camp experience. I anticipated the possibility of some difficulties because they were coming in to a situation where routines and friends had been established, but they were welcomed and slipped right in with the program. Your camp is well organized and staff appeared to be plentiful, well chosen and trained. Great job!!

- Stan Weinstein
