The coronavirus pandemic has upended summer plans for many a family, yet this week the JCC announced that its summer camp is still on.
Beginning, Monday, July 6, Summer at the J will open at the Rosenbloom Owings Mills JCC, under the strict guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Maryland Department of Health (MDH).
Summer at the J will feature small groups in a fully outdoor setting. No more than nine children will be placed in a bunk.
Although some activities such as the Zipline, Adventure Park and Instructional Swim will not be operating for safety reasons, campers will still enjoy many the activities they have come to love.
Camp is being offered to currently enrolled campers first and there is a waiting list for interested families. Summer at the J will begin reaching out to the families on the waiting list next week.
This summer, campers, from kindergarten through eighth grade, have the option of choosing from one of five tracks. These include:
In addition, the JCC will offer an Early Childhood Summer program for ages two to five at the Owings Mills campus.
Due to safety concerns, the JCC will not offer buses this summer, or early or late stay.
In the upcoming days, more details will be available for the Weinberg Park Heights J Kids program, which may include both virtual and in person opportunities throughout the summer.
