Safety at Camp
Camp is staffed by a registered nurse (RN) and a physician on call. In case of an emergency, the local hospital is less than five miles away from the JCC.
Camp Kaleidoscope is in compliance with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Public Health policies and is inspected and licensed by the City of Newton Department of Public Health.
Parents can request copies of background checks, health care and discipline policies, as well as procedures for filing grievances.
Children are outdoors for many activities during the camp day and should arrive with sunscreen applied. Staff will make time for children to reapply throughout the camp day. Parents can also give permission for staff to help younger children apply sunscreen.
Hydration is also very important, and water is available for campers throughout the day. Staff will encourage children to stay hydrated. Parents are asked to do the same.
