1. How will you maintain social distancing?

Marin JCC Camp Kehillah will make every effort to maintain social distancing between campers and will be working with campers to learn and teach about personal space and boundaries. We will limit intermingling between the camp groups to emphasize social distancing and minimize the number of people your children are exposed to.

2. Are masks required for all campers and counselors?

For fully vaccinated individuals, masks are optional outside. Masks are required indoors at all times regardless of vaccination status.

3. What protective gear should parents wear?

While parents and caretakers are not allowed in the building, we do ask that you wear a mask while in the car or walking up to drop off and pick up.

4. How do the guidelines affect specific activities and play? Also, will the play structure be open?

At this time campers will be assigned to a stable group, limiting intermingling with other groups. Groups will be assigned usage of communal play areas on a rotating basis. All high contact areas will be disinfected during usage by outdoor equipment will be disinfected after usage.

6. If a camper or counselor becomes sick, what is the plan of action, and will camp be canceled?

The OMJCC will implement health screening protocols before anyone can enter the building. If there is a suspected case or exposure of COVID-19 on-site, the OMJCC has a comprehensive isolation protocol. At that time, the OMJCC will consult with public health for the next steps.

7. What kind of cleaning will be implemented?

The OMJCC housekeeping and facility staff will perform ongoing manual disinfection of public areas and offices throughout the day. Daily cleaning of high contact surface areas will follow a strict cleaning schedule based on room usage. OMJCC staff will perform routine cleaning each night after staff and community members have left the building.

All Camp staff will do a virtual training of all new policies and procedures. This training must be completed before they can come into the JCC.

9. What if my child falls into a vulnerable population?

Please contact us to help us understand how they are vulnerable, so we can talk it through with you. Ultimately though you will have to gauge your own comfort.

Each group will have no more than 14 campers, maintaining a 2:14 ratio. There will be two counselors per group. Each group will maintain the same classroom space and the same counselors.

Having friends at camp depends entirely on the registration. We will do our best to accommodate, but we cannot guarantee anything.

At this point, we cannot offer transportation for summer camp. Campers will need to be picked up and dropped off at the OMJCC.
