COVID: In the event that a JCC Camp must close your child’s bunk, or all of camp, due to state or local mandate, JCC Camps will do our best to fit you into another week, session or JCC camp program as you prefer. If we are unable to accommodate you, JCC Greater Boston will credit your account for use in a future program. COVID procedures may be updated during the camp season as necessary.

ILLNESS: Keep children home if they are not feeling well. Campers with a fever will not be admitted to camp. Campers who develop a fever or other symptoms of illness will be sent home. Campers will be asked to follow precautions and regulations regarding COVID-19, which will be updated based on current conditions and provided before camp begins. Parents are expected to arrange prompt pickup of any child who is ill.

Discipline Policy

Camp is an exciting, fun, sociable and nurturing experience. Campers are expected to be respectful of each other, counselors, and the facilities. All efforts are made to work with campers and parents to provide a positive and meaningful experience at camp.  All campers must be able to use the restrooms independently in order to attend camp. This includes having ample awareness to get to the bathroom in plenty of time, ability to manage clothing, wiping, and flushing, and ability to wash hands independently. No camper shall be punished for soiling, wetting, or not using the toilet. If a camper misbehaves by distracting the group, not listening to directions, being disrespectful, or otherwise disrupting an activity, they may be asked to leave the group for a short period of time. The teacher or counselor will discuss the behavior with the camper, and bring them back to the group. Children will be given reminders and redirection in order to encourage positive behavior. Staff members will empower children to make positive choices and to practice empathy and cooperation in group settings. No camper shall be denied food. If the behavior continues or recurs, the camper may be brought to the office or to the Camper Support Director for a “time out” or break, keeping the camper’s age and abilities in mind. The camper will rejoin the group after an appropriate period. If the problem persists, parents are notified via a phone call. If a child has specific behavior issues, efforts will be made to work with parents to implement a behavior management program appropriate to camp.

If a camper misbehaves in a manner that is dangerous or destructive, staff will immediately ask the child to move away from the situation and call a supervisor. Staff will discuss the situation with the camper or campers involved and explain that the behavior is inappropriate and unacceptable. Parents are notified as soon as possible if a camper hits, pushes, bites, or otherwise hurts another member of the camp community, or if he or she is the object of such behavior. A camper who hits or hurts another person or engages in dangerous or destructive behavior will be sent home. In this case parents may be required to pick up the camper during the camp day. A parent conference is required before the camper can return. If a camper repeatedly endangers themselves or another camper or staff member; repeatedly breaks camp rules; participates in repeated demeaning or hurtful behavior; or knowingly damages property, they will be required to leave the camp. No refunds will be awarded in this case.
