Camp Policies

Physical Health Exam
Examination by a physician is highly recommended prior to attending camp each summer. A camp health form must be completed and returned to the JCC by June 1, 2014. The form may be picked up at the JCC or downloaded here. Children will not be accepted into camp without a completed health form.


Accident insurance is provided for all campers in JCC programs.
The cost is included in the registration fee.

Scholarships Adjustment of fees may be possible. Scholarship applications are available at the membership desks. Application deadline is February 15, 2014. The business office will answer any questions regarding the application and policy. Call 251-9467, ext. 2207. Please do not contact the camp directors regarding scholarship policies.

Deposit & Refund Policy
Deposit & Refund Policy Applications must be accompanied by a deposit
per child. Deposit is $50/week per child. $100 is NON-REFUNDABLE. If the total camp fee does not exceed $200, it must be paid in full at time of registration. $100 is NON-REFUNDABLE.

Applications with expired memberships or accounts that have outstanding balances for membership dues or program tuition WILL NOT be processed. Camp applications will not be processed until membership is established. Space availability cannot be guaranteed if membership is established AFTER receipt of the registration form. Balances for membership dues and camp fees for all weeks must be paid in full by May 1, 2014 or you must be established on an EZ payment plan. After May 1, 2014, all camp fees must be paid in full at time of registration. There will be a $50 charge for any changes made to the camp application after April 5, 2014.

All changes must be requested in writing and sent to the camp registrar, c/o JCC Accounting Office or by email: ABSOLUTELY NO REFUNDS WILL BE MADE FOR ANY REASON AFTER JUNE 1, 2014.

*For Sports Camps, the non-refundable portion of the fee is 50%
of the total camp fee or $100, whichever is less.


Fee Payment
There are 2 ways to pay for JCC Summer camp–payment in full at time of registration or the JCC’s EZ payment plan.  Forms are available at the membership desk.

Payments will automatically be charged to your bank or credit card account in 3 equal payments on April 1, May 1 and June 1. If you enroll after March 1 payment will be in 2 equal payments April 1 and May 1. If you enroll after April 1 the open balance will be deducted on May 1. Enrollment after May 1 payment must be made in full.

If you participate in a cafeteria plan for children and require a receipt for reimbursement, please contact the accounting office for a monthly receipt.  A sufficient balance and/or credit line must be maintained in your account to fulfill your monthly obligations. Insufficient funds and/or denial of payment to the JCC will result in a $25 service charge for each case. If you have 2 insufficient funds issues and/or denial of credit to your credit card, camp services and JCC membership may be terminated.

Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Responsibilities
In the event of suspicion of child abuse or neglect of any enrolled children, staff members are required to report this to the camp director and to DCS. The director and staff member will together report the suspicion to the Department of Child Services.


If an intoxicated or impaired person insists on removing children from the center, the center shall immediately report the incident to the local policy agency.

Campers with Special Needs
JCC Summer Camp programs accommodate children with special needs who are ready for a group camp experience. Every child’s individual needs are assessed or reviewed annually to provide a successful match between the camper and the program. For further information, call Aaron Atlas, 251-9467, ext. 2283.
