COVID-19 Protocols

As always, the top priority for MJCCA Day Camps is the health and safety of our campers, staff, and their families. For summer 2021, as we did last summer, and as the MJCCA continues to do year round, we will operate in accordance with public health guidelines, the CDC, and the American Camp Association.

We plan to continue to sanitize, disinfect, distance, wear masks, and maintain small groups as guidelines dictate to best ensure the health and well-being of our MJCCA Day Camps families. Campers have access to multiple hand sanitizer stations, our HVAC systems are treated with UV light, and we use GenEon Disinfectant blowers inside our main building.

In addition, we plan for our large gatherings, like Boker Tov and Shabbat, to be separate, with separate areas designated for each small group. For safety, snacks will not be handed out, each child must bring their own lunch to camp, and water bottle fill stations have been added, instead of water fountains.

We are constantly monitoring all health and safety recommendations, and as more information becomes available, we will provide updates on summer 2021 protocols in the months leading up to camp. Deposits and camp fees are fully refundable through May 1, 2021, excluding the non-refundable $50/child registration fee.

A health history form must be submitted (online) prior to the start of the camp season. It is the responsibility of the camp family to inform MJCCA Day Camps of any changes to the information submitted on the health history form.

Q: What is your mask policy?

A: This is a difficult decision to make at this point. Based on the current spread of COVID-19, masks would be required all day, except for food breaks, as is done in our Club J Your Way program. It’s also possible that we require masks only during indoor activities, like we did with Summer Days @ the J last summer. Our final decision will be made in the months leading up to summer and will reflect the advice of the CDC and local health agencies, using the latest metro Atlanta virus data.

Q: What is your quarantine policy?

A: If your child’s cohort has a positive COVID-19 case, the entire cohort will be required to quarantine for two weeks. We are erring on the side of caution to do everything possible to prevent and limit transmission. Please note: no refunds will be given for tuition during a temporary group closure due to COVID-19 that lasts 14 days or fewer.
