Children are grouped according to age, friendships, grade and school district. Every reasonable attempt will be made to place children with their friends. Parents may request such groupings on the registration form.
All of our camps are supervised by professional educators, social workers and childcare specialists. Counselors are chosen for their maturity, warmth, and ability to relate to children. Senior counselors are a minimum of 19 years of age or have commensurate experience. Our staff attends extensive training seminars prior to the opening of camp. All of our camps are licensed by either the Nassau or Suffolk County Board of Health.
We wear our T-shirt every day to show our spirit. Two complimentary T-shirts are provided to our campers prior to the official opening of camp. Additional T-shirts, camp bags and other accessories may be purchased at the JCC in mid-June.
Camp parent orientations are held for all camps prior to the beginning of camp. If you cannot attend these meetings, please call the JCC office for pre-camp information and a calendar.

Closing Dates, Fees and Policies
All fees must be paid in full no later that June 1st. Campers will not be able to attend camp if fees are still outstanding at the beginning of the camp season. Please note that early bird discounts and financial aid will be forfeited if all fees are not paid by June 1st. Payment plans are available by calling our bookkeeping office at 516-766-4341. Please call your local JCC office early in the school year for financial assistance, as funds are limited. All financial aid requests and payment plans are kept strictly confidential. Please note that withdrawals may be made up until June 1st. There is a $25 administrative charge for any withdrawals. No refunds will be given after that time. There is a sibling discount of $100 for a second child and $150 for each additional child in each family. Please note that the JCC reserves the right to remove or suspend a child from camp. Whenever possible, our staff will meet with parents should a problem arise. However, no refunds will be given in the event of a suspension or removal. Please also be advised that in the case of overnights or extended trips, campers may be sent home in accordance with JCC policy at the sole expense of the parent(s). Not all JCC policies are listed in the camp literature. The JCC cannot and does not assume any responsibility for personal property of campers or staff.
Door-to-door transportation is included in the cost of tuition (for Junior, Explorer and Voyager Divisions). The fun-filled bus, complete with games, songs and camp activities are staffed by our counselors who have been especially trained for supervising the bus.
