MJCCA membership is for one continuous year from the month membership is established. Membership dues are non-refundable. To cancel a membership, you must send written notification 30 days prior to the anniversary of your join date. MJCCA memberships cannot be cancelled in the first year of membership. When reinstating a cancelled or expired membership, a registration fee will apply.
In the event that a member moves away 40 miles or more from the MJCCA, the MJCCA will give a refund on a prorated basis. The member must provide proof of the move with at least 30 days advance written notice.
MJCCA memberships may be frozen or extended due to illness or injury only. Memberships can only be frozen for a period of one, two or three months and will affect all individuals on the membership account. A doctor's note documenting the date and nature of the illness or injury must be provided to the membership department immediately, and memberships can only be frozen once during a membership year.
A family membership is required when registering a child for preschool, Club J, Day Camps and Camp Barney Medintz. A young adult membership is valid for facility access, member prices on programs, youth sports and adult sports. Please contact the membership department at 678.812.4060 with any questions.
New members are required to establish a monthly payment plan. The monthly payment plan fulfills the annual membership agreement and is not considered a month-to-month membership. A membership cannot be cancelled during the first year. To cancel a membership at the conclusion of the first year, written notification must be received by the Membership department 30 days prior to the anniversary of the join date.
All payment plan memberships automatically renew on the anniversary of the join date at prevailing rates. After the first year of membership, a member can cancel their membership by providing a 30-day written notification.
Monthly payments are debited from a checking account or charged to a credit card. The MJCCA accepts American Express®, VISA®, MasterCard®, and Discover®.
Many programs offered at the MJCCA require a current MJCCA membership. When registering for one of these programs, members acknowledge that a membership is required throughout the entire program. If your membership renewal date occurs prior to or during the program, your membership will automatically renew at prevailing rates and dues will be charged monthly to the credit card provided for registration unless alternate payment arrangements have been made with the membership department. If a credit card is not provided, it is the member's responsibility to contact the membership department and make payment arrangements.
Members at the Preferred and Essential level may upgrade their memberships at any time. In the case of partial year upgrades, the fee will be prorated. Membership downgrades are permitted with a 30-day written notice after the one-year anniversary of the join date.
Membership cards are required for all members 6th grade and older and must be scanned at all building entrances to access the MJCCA Zaban Park facility.

Lost cards will be replaced for a nominal fee of $10 per card or $5 for key fobs.

Guest passes are only available for prospective members and no other guest passes are being issued at this time. As many of our programs require reservations or smaller groups, we are prioritizing those spaces for our members.

The MJCCA’s Inclusion Program strives to provide the necessary accommodations and flexibility for youth who require additional support so they may access the transformative opportunities available at the MJCCA. Our Inclusion Team collaborates with parents, educators, and staff to determine if successful program placement is possible.
