*$15 Per Week Sibling Discount
If you would like to withdraw/change your enrollment in a Mandell JCC summer program, you must notify us no less than 2 weeks prior to your start date, in order to receive a full refund. Changes to program enrollment are dependent on availability.
For our Mandell JCC summer camps; should the town health department direct us to quarantine a specific camp group(s), the Mandell JCC will issue a refund/credit for days missed.
Refunds/credits do not apply to families instructed or choosing to quarantine due to household exposure/suspected exposure (i.e. siblings in other summer programs, contact with friends/neighbors outside of camp, parent exposed at work, etc.), or if a household member tests positive, thereby necessitating that their child remain in quarantine. Lost time (including illness or vacation) cannot be made up in other sessions.
Member Rate Policy:
In order to receive member rates for all camps including one week camps, the camper must be a part of an active membership from June 1-August 31, 2021. Membership requires a written 30 days notice to cancel and is not held to the same cancel/refund policy as camp.
Bus transportation is included from the Mandell JCC in West Hartford. We will be following health and safety guidelines on the bus.
Lunch & Snacks Included
No need to provide your own lunches at Camp Shalom – we do it for you! We offer balanced and nutritious meals daily, as well as snack each afternoon. All meals/snacks are kosher and under the supervision of the Hartford Kashrut Commission.
Health & Safety
A registered nurse is on site to ensure that campers are safe and cared for. Camp Shalom meets or exceeds the highest safety standards set by State and local health agencies.
We understand that the cost of attending summer camp can be a financial burden for some families. We are committed to providing everyone the opportunity to be a part of our Camp Shalom family.
