health & safety protocols

Camp Butwin, Camp Olami and Summer at the J

Creating a safe and healthy environment for your children and our staff is our highest priority. In accordance with governmental orders and guidelines, we are taking extra precautions to help our community stay safe and healthy. In addition, we are asking you – our parents – to partner with us by adhering to health guidelines, open & honest communication and patience.



All campers and staff must be up to date with the COVID vaccines and boosters to attend camp, unless they have been granted a medical exemption. Specifically, campers and staff must have received their second shot at least two weeks before attending JCC summer programs and get boosters when eligible.



Masks will not be required at camp. Each family is welcome to make the decision about what is best for their camper. Whatever masking decision you choose, we will support your decision as a camp community. We will work to ensure that camp is inclusive of all and will emphasize that staff and campers should not question the masking decisions made by other members of our community.
