Our two year olds enjoy water play and sprinklers. Campers ages three years and up learn to swim in our 25-yard, heated indoor pool, Mondays through Thursdays, and enjoy free pool time on Fridays. The pool is staffed with certified Water Safety Instructors and certified lifeguards during all swim periods.

In addition, counselors are both on deck and in the water to supervise campers. Our Aquatics Program follows American Red Cross guidelines.

Camp Information FAQ

Registration is based on your camper’s school placement for September 2023. Twos must be two by August 2023 or entering JCCMW's Twos program in September 2023.

There are different hours for the camp day, depending on the age group your child will be in. The hours for our Twos group(s) are 9:00 AM–Noon. For our Threes group(s), the hours are 9:00–1:00 PM. Our Fours group(s) hours are 9:00–4:00 PM.

Yes, there are extended day opportunities: 8:00–9:00 AM (early care) and 4:00–6:00 PM (after care). These will be a separate registration during the cap season.

The after-care option is only available for the campers that stay full day (9:00 AM–4:00 PM). Our campers in the Fours and Ks–Firsts group(s) can stay for after-care. 

The early-care option is open to all.

All food (snacks and lunch) will be provided by families. However, on Wednesdays, we will provide a pizza lunch.

Our Twos group(s) have time for outdoor water play and sprinklers. All other campers have regular swim time in our indoor pool. Threes group(s) swim three days a week and Fours, Ks, and Firsts swim five days a week.

Our swimming activity lasts about 30 minutes; campers are in the water with swimming instructors and staff helping them improve their swimming abilities. 

Campers should bring a change of clothes, swim apparel, and sunscreen.

Depending on the age and program they are registered for, they should bring a morning/afternoon snack and a kosher-style, nut-free lunch. 

Our staff includes directors, specialists, medical staff, and counselors. 

Yes, we will have a parent visiting day. More information will be distributed closer to that time!

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. 

The Eighth-Week option is an extension week that gives campers the option to have another week of camp fun.
