There will be a maximum of 15 campers in each group/bunk along with 3 counselors.
Each bunk will have their own primary classroom in the Early Childhood Education wing of the JCC. The first floor classrooms will be for younger campers and the upstairs classrooms for older campers. The gymnasium and auditorium will be utilized.
Each bunk will be independent from one another. Each group will spend the majority of their time in their room, the pool, courtyard, and fields. We will be carefully monitoring camper scheduling and program locations to ensure all camp groups maintain the recommended ten-foot distance from each other.
Many of our camp staff is from our Early Childhood Education Center and returning camp staff and they are very familiar with the camp program and your child(ren)’s needs. All staff will receive extensive training regarding COVID-19 safety and protocol.
This summer, there will be no parents / guardians permitted into the camp. Arrival will entail a communicated drop off procedure, temperature check and wellness questions. All arriving staff will undergo the same procedure daily.
After the new morning arrival procedure is complete, the camp day will consist of daily free swim (or water play for our younger campers), art projects, sports and games in the fields, nature, games and more!
Parents must pack a dairy (non-meat) lunch daily. Camp will offer a pizza lunch every Friday for a small fee.
This summer we will be following the guidelines set forth by the CDC and the New Jersey Department of Health. When in the fields or the swimming pools, campers will not have to wear masks. Masks must be worn during arrival, dismissal, in bunk rooms, and during transition times (i.e. walking to pool/fields).
Weather permitting, campers will swim regularly in the outdoor pool. Our younger campers will enjoy daily water play in the courtyard. Campers should arrive in their bathing suits daily and pack a towel and dry change of clothes. There will always be at least two lifeguards present in addition to your child’s counselors. The outdoor pool will be closed to JCC members and guests during the camp day.
