COVID-19 Updates

Last Updated May 11, 2021

Dear JCA Families,

It’s hard to believe summer is almost here! After more than a year of not being together in person, we all need camp more than ever. While camp may look a little different this year, we know that we can make that JCA magic even under these unusual circumstances.

With camp scheduled to begin in about 6 weeks, we want to share an update about the COVID guidelines provided to us and their impact on the status of camp as of today:

COVID Guidelines

We will release our full Camp JCA Shalom Covid protocols for this summer once we receive the guidelines from the State of California and LA County. However, based on ACA guidelines, recently released CDC guidelines, along with our camp health and wellness committee, we expect our protocols will include:

Summer 2021 Cancellation Policy

As a reminder, we have waived our cancellation policy this summer, so all fees are refundable. If the camp cannot operate, or if the camp does operate but you choose to cancel your registration, you will be offered a full refund.

You also have the option of rolling over your payment as a credit towards a future summer or donating all or a portion of your camp fees to sustain and support Camp JCA Shalom. Registration fees donated to the camp will be matched dollar for dollar (1:1) and are tax-deductible thanks to a generous matching grant from the Harold Grinspoon Foundation. We are grateful to the Harold Grinspoon Foundation (HGF) for the support of the camp during these difficult times.

We know this will be a summer like no other, and we are certain that when we receive permission to operate, Summer 2021 will be our best summer yet. Thank you for your patience and dedication as we prepare to create a transformative, fun, and safe summer for your campers.

Shabbat Shalom,

Joel Charnick
Director, Camp JCA Shalom
