Confirmations are sent out within 4 weeks of receiving your camper’s application.

Each registration will be charged a $50 registration fee ($75 after May 1, 2016) per child and a $100 deposit per child to be applied towards camp fees. Registration fees and deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable. Any cancellation requests made before April 1, 2016 will receive a full refund, minus registration fees and deposits. Cancellation requests made between April 1, 2016 and May 1, 2016 will receive a 50% refund, minus registration fees and deposits. There will be no credits or refunds given after May 1, 2016.

Lunch is only provided for our CIA Jr campers. All other campers must bring their own lunch to camp each day. All Traditional and Outdoor Specialty Camp camper lunches will be refrigerated. All Indoor Specialty, Sports, and Performing Arts Camp camper lunches will not be refrigerated, but will be stored in an air conditioned facility. All campers will receive 2 Kosher snacks (parve or dairy) each day, as well as a flavor ice Popsicle at the end of the day. Water stations are located all over campus, and our staff ensures that campers are given many opportunities throughout the day to drink water and stay hydrated.

Please do not send iPods, cell phones, electronic games/toys, trading cards or money to camp with your child. Also, please discourage your child from bringing items that he/she does not want lost or damaged. Campers enrolled in travel camps who bring spending money will be responsible for managing their own money and purchases. The MJCCA is not responsible for lost, stolen, or traded items.

No. MJCCA Day Camps welcome all children, regardless of religious affiliation, to participate in our camp experience.
10. How do I make a transportation change during the summer?
ALL transportation changes must be submitted in writing to our camp transportation coordinator. Transportation changes include any change in afternoon transportation for your camper (i.e. instead of riding the bus, they will be getting picked up through carpool), early pick-up for your camper, any change in the person who will be picking up your camper, etc. Changes must be submitted by 11:00am that day and can be submitted through our online camp mail form or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
11. What is the early pick-up process for MJCCA Day Camps?
Early pick-ups can only be accommodated until 3:00pm each day – after that time, our staff is preparing for afternoon dismissal and will not be able to coordinate early pick-ups. Early pick-up requests must be submitted in writing to our camp transportation coordinator through the camp mail form or by emailing email@example.com. When you submit your early pick-up request, please indicate your camper’s name, dismissal number, and what time your camper will be getting picked up early. All campers scheduled for early pick-up will need to be picked up from the front desk in the main JCC building.
12. How can I make a change to my child’s camp registration?
Any registration changes or additions must be submitted in writing by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration changes made after May 1, 2016 will be charged a $25 change fee. However, you will not be charged a change fee if you are adding additional weeks to your camper’s registration.
