Dear Kaleidoscope Family, 

It is with great sadness that we announce the difficult decision to cancel Camp Kaleidoscope this summer. We do not feel that we can deliver the core Kaleidoscope programming of theatre, singing and the arts while following the CDC guidelines and American Camp Association Report. The safety of our campers, families and staff has always been of paramount importance to us. 

We are exploring hosting an in-person general camp at the Leventhal-Sidman JCC this summer and Kaleidoscope families would be given priority registration. This camp will take full advantage of our outdoor spaces at our site in Newton. We hope to have more information on this in the coming weeks and will update all currently registered Kaleidoscope families as soon as possible.  

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.  Camp families who leave the deposit (or more) with the JCC will be guaranteed 2020 Kaleidoscope 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. Please go here to let us know your preference.  

Thanks so much for all of your support as we struggled with this decision and we will be in touch soon about a virtual get-together. We hope to see you in 2021 for a summer of hugs, singing, dancing and the arts!
