Covid-19 Updates for Sport Camps

Based upon the current state and local restrictions, we know this year will look different than our traditional Sports Camps years, but we are excited to get up and running, while providing a great program and experience for your child. Below is a list of some initial information that we would like you to know about this summer Camp. We hope this will help guide your decision.

New Safety Measures

  • Sport Premier Campers will be put into groups of 30 or less. Each group will be assigned 2 staff. Special request for groups will not be granted. Groups will be separated prior to camp and we will do our best to keep groups together based on age/grade/siblings. Groups will remain the same all week. See below for J Camp Add-On option groups.
  • Drop off will be at the JCC Pavilion in car line.
  • Health and temperature checks will be completed at Check-In. Parents are to stay in cars and not leave till their child is cleared on their health check.
  • Campers should remain in their cars until directed to exit by a staff member.
  • Campers should bring a water bottle and spray sunscreen to camp each day. No backpacks or toys will be allowed
  • Camp will operate within spaces/rooms on the JCC campus. Groups will remain in their designated space throughout the day. Rotations to each room will be made throughout the week.

  • A prepackaged snack will be provided during the 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. sport camp. For health and safety, we will not allow outside food to be brought into the site. We will work closely with families whose children have dietary needs.
