Our family isn’t Jewish. Is Camp JCC for us?
Absolutely! We may say boker tov, which is Hebrew for good morning, but we say it to welcome people of all faiths and backgrounds! If you want a traditional day camp experience, Camp JCC is for you!
Do you provide snacks for my child?
All campers enjoy a snack in the morning and an afternoon treat. Campers must bring their own lunch and beverage. We ask that you respect Kosher laws. Also, please remember that camp is peanut free!
What kind of swim instruction do you provide?
Our certified lifeguards provide age-appropriate swim lessons that focus on everything from floating to survival techniques, dives, and specialized strokes.
Do you have a sibling discount?
If two or more children from the same family membership are registered for the same week, families receive a discount of $25 per child per week for every child after the first enrollee. The sibling discount may not be combined with any other discounts.
Do you offer financial assistance?
The JCC strives to ensure no child is denied a camp experience. Scholarships are available. Complete applications including all requested documentation are due by April 17th. Applications received after April 17th will be held and considered after May 15th and only if funding is still available. Applications are available at www.CampJCC.org and at the Customer Service Desk of the JCC.
How do I register my child?
Camp registration forms are available for download at www.CampJCCvb.org. You can also pick up a form from the JCC Customer Service Desk or request that one be sent to you by calling 757-321-2338.
Is there a registration fee?
There is no registration fee.
How do I pay for camp?
We accept cash, check, VISA, MasterCard, and Discover. A non-refundable deposit of 25 percent of the total fees is due at the time of registration, with the remaining balance due by June 1, 2018. Registration after June 1, 2018, requires payment in full.
What kind of JCC membership qualifies me for the discount at Camp JCC?
The JCC member discounts are for full year (12-month) family or single parent membership only, and do not apply to summer memberships.
What if I decide I need to cancel my child’s enrollment?
All cancellations must be in writing 14 days prior to the start of the week of camp to be canceled. All deposits are non-refundable. Parents canceling after the 14-day deadline are responsible for any remaining balance of the canceled weeks.
Can I switch weeks in which my child’s enrolled?
Participants may exchange weeks in which they are initially enrolled. A change form must be completed by the camper’s guardian 10 days prior to the start of the originally enrolled week. Exchanges are based on availability. The JCC reserves the right to charge a change fee of $25 after the first change.
Is camp in session on July 4th?
Camp JCC is not in session on Wednesday, July 4, 2018.
Do you give refunds if my child gets sick and can’t attend camp?
Unfortunately, we are unable to reduce fees due to absence, illness, family matters, holidays
(including July 4), or vacations. All deposits are non-refundable. The JCC makes every effort to provide campers with a great camping experience, and cannot be held responsible for acts of God, and will not provide refunds for natural disasters that may interfere with the camp experience.
