Summer Camp 2021
For decades, the JCC Summer Day Camp has enriched the lives of children with programming that puts the emphasis on fun, safety, and developing confidence.
At the JCC, there are endless opportunities for campers to explore their interests and make new friends. Campers swim every day and participate in a variety of indoor and outdoor activities led by specialists in music, art, drama, sports, and Israeli culture.
Our camp staff will ensure that your child has opportunities to explore his or her interests, discover new ones, and develop meaningful friendships. We look forward to sharing the summertime with you and your family.
Active JCC membership is required to enroll.
Our Uptown camp serves ages 21 months to grade 5, and our Metairie camp serves ages 3 to grade 5.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will I be able to enroll my child if I don’t have children in the JCC Nursery school?
We have a rolling camper online application process. Current JCC Nursery School families are given priority registration from January 15 - 31. On February 1, applications are available for returning camp families (those who attended in 2020 or who paid a 2020 camp deposit.) Applications are available to all others beginning on February 15.
We encourage you to apply upon eligibility, as limited space is available.
Do I have to be a current JCC member to apply to camp?
Applications will be considered on a rolling basis. If we are able to offer you a spot for your camper and your membership is not current, you will be notified by email and have 4 business days to setup or reinstate your JCC membership.
Contact our membership directors with questions.

When are all forms and final payments due for campers?
All forms and final payments are due on Friday May 7, 2021
Physician's Examination Form must be completed and signed by a physician and uploaded to CampInTouch. 2020-2021 JCC Nursery School students do not have to submit an additional form.
How will camp look different?
Are face masks required?
All JCC staff will be required to wear face masks over their nose and mouth when they are unable to ensure that they can keep six feet of social distance from any camper or other member of the staff. There will be moments, including when outdoors and appropriately distanced, when removal of a mask is necessary, or safe to do so.
Campers over age 2 are required to bring a mask each day. They must wear a mask upon arrival each day and until their wellness check and protocol is passed. They will also wear it in the class. Their masks will not be worn by the pool or during outside play. Due to the nature of working with young children, we understand that wearing masks will be challenging for our younger campers and may have to reevaluate the effectiveness by class. Due to the young age of our K’ton ton campers, they will not be required to wear a mask.
Will before care and after care be available for my child?
Before care and after care will not be offered this summer.
I’ve submitted an application and need to request changes to my camper weeks. What is the process?
To request adjustments to your camp enrollment, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. You can check the status of your camper’s weeks by logging into your CampInTouch account and clicking on the Camper Information tab.
Additional weeks may be added if space is available.
