joy + discovery

Welcome to Summer Arts Camp!

At Summer Arts Camp at the J, campers ages 7 to 10 will take their creativity to the next level, learning about great art, artists, and cultures from around the world and exploring artistic techniques through mixed media, collage, painting, and sculpture.

Plus, every afternoon, campers will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of indoor and outdoor sports and recreational activities—including swimming and gymnastics—to keep them active and engaged!

Full-session, flexible weekly options, and early and after care are available!

Financial FAQ

Any camp registration options that total greater than $1,000, will be paid in two installments. One installment will be the initial deposit, and the second will be the remaining balance due by June 1.

Any camp registration option that is less than $1,000 will have to be paid in full on the registration date.

The registration options are set up on an individual basis. If you sign up for multiple registration options under $1,000 but in total are greater than $1,000, the whole balance will be due.

For example, signing up for multiple weeks, using our weekly option registration, may total more than $1,000. The total registration will have to be paid.

For parents that have a total registration balance of greater than $1,000, the deposit will be $1,000.

JCCMW does not give refunds unless JCCMW permanently cancels the program/class/event. No refund, discount, or credit is given for absence due to illness, holidays, or vacations taken by families, inclement weather closing, or any other circumstances. 

The only exceptions to this are: 

 1)  The patron provides a documented medical disability signed by a medical practitioner as the reason for withdrawal from the program. 

2)  Prorated requests for families/individuals who are moving away from the area (more than 30 miles). 

Requests for the above refunds will be considered only if: i) The account is paid and up-to-date; and (ii) A written request for a prorated refund is submitted to the  director for their approval.  

Refunds of less than $500 are subject to a $35 processing fee and refunds greater than $500 to a $50 processing fee (fee is subject to change at any time). JCCMW will make every effort to satisfy all requests and reserves the right to take up to 30 days to reply to requests. 

If the camp director believes that my child is not benefiting from their experience, it is JCCMW's privilege to request that the child be withdrawn. In this event, tuition will be prorated from the date of such withdrawal, minus a $50 administrative fee.

JCCMW reserves the right to modify this policy at any time in its sole discretion to adapt to changing circumstances and business needs, consistent with its commitment to maintaining a safe and healthy environment.

We offer both an early bird discount for early enrollment and a sibling discount of five percent.
