Camp JCC prides itself on having a diverse camp community where campers & staff of various backgrounds, beliefs, identities, and needs can come together in one safe space to have a summer of fun and growth. Our staff understands the importance of a child’s mental, emotional, social, spiritual, and physical health and place these needs first.
Working directly with campers, their counselors, and in coordination with their families, our Camper Care team is here to guide, support, and remove barriers to participation so that participants can experience Camp JCC to the best of their ability. Camper Care focuses on addressing campers’ mental, emotional, social and spiritual health (MESSH) needs as well as scaffolding, coaching, and reinforcing positive peer behaviors. To successfully accomplish this goal, Camp JCC asks and expects families to be a partner in helping us understand and appreciate their camper's unique whole self.
While we strive to provide the best support and care that we can, these are the boundary behaviors that are prohibited in order to ensure the mental, emotional, social, spiritual, & physical safety of all campers attending Camp JCC:
Camp JCC does not provide one-on-one support. If your child already has a one on one support or works with an ABA therapist, please contact Camp JCC Director Dave Flagler so that the proper arrangements can be made.
For more information regarding Camper Care, accommodations available, and/or to consult regarding your child’s needs, please contact Camp JCC Director Dave Flagler.
Camp JCC is committed to supporting our LGBTQ+ campers, staff, and families. Camp JCC acknowledges that the needs of transgender and gender-expansive participants are unique and should be treated individually and in consultation with the participant.
