Dear Camp Thrive Families, 

It is with great sadness that we announce the difficult decision to cancel Camp Thrive this summer. We have based this decision on the American Camping Association report, CDC guidelines, and the recent guidelines shared by the Massachusetts's Governor’s office. We feel that we cannot deliver the planned Camp Thrive programming while also implementing the required social distancing guidelines necessary to keep our campers safe.  

We are exploring hosting an in-person general camp at the Leventhal-Sidman JCC. Camp Thrive families will be given priority registration. We hope to have more information on this in the coming weeks.  

All camp fees, including deposits, will be refunded. You have the choice to donate all or part of your camp fees as a tax-exempt donation to the JCC, to leave all or part of your fees toward a credit for future JCC programs, or to receive a check for all fees paid to date. Please email ldouty@jccgb.org for your Camp Thrive refund, donation, partial donation or credit.

Camp families who leave the deposit (or more) with the JCC will be guaranteed 2020 Camp Thrive prices.

Refunds will take approximately 90 days to process. If you are experiencing financial hardship, please let us know and we will do our best to expedite your refund.

Thank you so much for all of your support, understanding and patience as we struggled with this decision. We look forward to seeing you in 2021 for a summer of soccer, swimming, hugs and high-fives!
