We are open from 7 AM to 6 PM and children must be signed in and out daily. Parents will be asked to check in and out at a location that is distanced from the camp (i.e. curbside). A staff member will meet you each morning to do a brief wellness check with your child (which may include a temperature check) before you leave. Please call the camp phone to notify staff of your arrival if staff are not outside to meet you when dropping off/picking up. We will be restricting facility access to non-essential visitors and will maintain a log of authorized individuals who enters the camp.
Children are not required to attend camp every day; however, camp is based on a full summer commitment and we do not prorate fees for illness or vacations. Children can be checked in anytime during camp hours. Please call the camp phone to notify staff of your arrival if staff are not outside to meet you when dropping off/picking up.
Staff engage the children with STEM activities, cooking projects, arts and crafts, board games, sports, outside time, and much more! They will occasionally bring in a program or special entertainment that will be offered on-site with appropriate physical distancing guidelines in addition to the many fun activities throughout the day.
You will be required to provide payment information for recurring payments at the time of registration. Summer tuition fees are charged weekly on the Friday before care. The non-refundable Registration Fee is paid at the time of registration.
Each site director plans their own field trips, so trips can vary from camp to camp. Sample field trips may include museums, parks, baseball games, miniature golfing, movies, zoos, nature centers, bowling and more.
No, a sack lunch must be provided for your child unless the site participates in the Summer Lunch Program. Please contact your program director to determine if your child’s summer camp location participates in the summer lunch program. JCPRD will provide a healthy morning and afternoon snack each day.
Children will receive both a morning and afternoon snack daily. We provide various healthy snack options that are low in fat and sugars. Examples include: fruits, vegetables, yogurt, and whole grains.
All participants are required to attend field trips if they are present for the day.
No worries! Children must pass a swim test to enter areas of the pool in which they cannot touch. Children who either do not take the swim test or do not pass will be given a bright orange wristband to easily identify them by staff and lifeguards as "non-swimmers". Staff reserve the right to not pass a child if they are uncomfortable with their swimming abilities.
