JCC Camps COVID-19 Code of Conduct

Last Updated May 31, 2022 

Our camp policies are created following the guidance of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and may be amended at any time.  All COVID-19 instances related to the camp are evaluated on a case-by-case basis, taking into account the unique timeline and nature of exposure, symptoms, recovery, and other factors. The JCC summer camp policy does not allow for refunds for absences due to illness or quarantine.


Campers with COVID-19 symptoms must stay home.

Symptoms include: fever, cough, sore throat, gastrointestinal distress, shortness of breath, loss of taste/smell, muscle aches, fatigue, headache, runny nose/congestion. Campers who had symptoms must be fever free for 24 hours without medication to return to camp and show a negative Covid-19 test.



In the event your camper is exposed to COVID-19 or has a positive test, caregivers must notify the administration. We have 3 options for your child to return to camp after a known exposure.  Exposures within a household will require additional details and will be handled case-by-case.

Option #1: Test to stay with antigen testing.


Option #2: 5-day quarantine at home, return on day 6 with antigen testing.


Option #3: No testing, 10-day quarantine at home 


Positive Test


Testing Exemptions for Individuals Recently Recovered

Anyone who has recovered from COVID-19 in the past 90 days is exempt from quarantine, as long as no symptoms arise.
