Safety and fun combine at Weinstein JCC Summer Day Camps

Specialty Camp at Weinstein JCC - All types of Specialty Camps are offered at the Weinstein JCC.

The Weinstein JCC Camp Team has been busy planning for an amazing summer, just 4 months away!

To provide the safest experience possible, staff have been working closely with the Virginia Department of Health to ensure all camp programs, staff and campers are following protocols and guidelines for the Best. Summer. EVER.

This summer’s safety measures include:

  • Every day, campers and staff will be asked a series of health-related questions at arrival.
  • Temperatures will be taken with touchless thermometer and those with a temperature of 100.4 or higher will not be permitted to attend camp.
  • Individuals displaying any of the following symptoms, fatigue, cough, sore throat, congestion or a runny nose, shortness of breath, headache, nausea or vomiting or who look visibly ill will not be allowed to attend camp.
  • We will be operating camp in pods or “families” during the

    camp day and even during transportation! Campers will remain in their pod all day and there will be no intermingling between the pods.

  • Campers and staff will be required to wear a face mask during transportation to and from camp and while in any indoor spaces. (Ages 5 and Up)
  • Camp will be cleaned using CDC/EPA approved cleaning supplies thoroughly and on a regular basis, following CDC guidelines and recommendations. High touch areas such as our buses, vans, bathrooms, light switches, doorknobs, tables, chairs, and playground and sports equipment will be cleaned/sanitized frequently throughout the camp day.
  • Handwashing and hand sanitizing will be completed after transitions and encouraged throughout the camp day.

Continue to Adapt
