School-Age & Early Childhood RegistrATIon informATIon

Every camper is special. We want to ensure

that every camper has a wonderful and

memorable experience at camp, and that

requires your help. Please carefully review the

information in this booklet, the information you

will receive after registration and information

that is sent home from camp. The registration

fee is non-refundable, and non-applicable to

camp tuition. The JCC is not responsible for

unintended, unforeseen absences. The JCC

reserves the right to cancel any camp for lack

of minimum enrollment; balances paid will be

transferred or refunded. You will be notified in

advance of any cancellations.

How to register

Use the appropriate registration form (starting

on page 9) and return it with the required

payment. Use one form per child. Once your

registration is received, other forms will be sent

to you, which must be completed and returned

at least two weeks before camp starts. Full

payment is due per the deadlines at right.

Deposit and billing

With each child’s registration form you must

include the following at minimum:

• $50 per week deposit

• $25 non-applicable, non-refundable

registration fee

Registration will not be considered without both

the deposit and the registration fee. Note: Mail

and billing will be sent to the child’s address.

The JCC accepts cash, checks and credit

cards. There will be no third party billing.

Sibling discount

A 2% discount will be credited for each child’s

camp tuition when more than one child from

a family attends at least one session in the

same camp (both in School-Age Camp or both

in ECDP Camp). This credit will be calculated

following the end of camp once all registration

changes are recorded. The credit can ONLY be

applied toward JCC Health, Physical Education

and Recreation (HPER) classes; ECDP; or

Children’s Programs (not including fundraisers

or membership). The credit must be used by

Dec. 31, 2020. If a sibling does not attend a

program for any reason, the credit will not be

given.

What tuition includes

Camp tuition includes materials, transportation

(School-Age Camps only), a camp T-shirt,

daily snacks, field trips and cookouts. Parents

will receive advance notice of special events

and optional program activities that require an

additional fee. Because camps are programmed

by session, campers who do not attend all five

days each week may miss field trips, special

programs and activities. Unfortunately, we are

unable to change or substitute days for which

a child has been registered to accommodate a

specific trip or event.

Scholarships/financial aid

Every child deserves a summer camp

experience. For that reason, the JCC offers a

limited number of scholarships for camps and

memberships. Scholarship applications must be

received by May 22, 2020 Please call the JCC

for a scholarship application.

YachAD Program

Yachad, meaning “all together” in Hebrew, is

Camp Romano’s inclusion program for children

with special needs. It’s designed to create a

sense of community among all participants

and help Yachad campers develop feelings of

belonging and independence.

What do we do in Yachad?

• Provide a fun camp experience modified to

the camper’s needs.

• Provide additional trained support staff.

• Improve social interactions and social skills

among peers, and facilitate friendships.

• Make accommodations as necessary by

altering teaching methods without lowering

standards.

There will be no additional cost to enroll your

child in Camp Romano’s Yachad Program

provided our grant funding is renewed again

this year.

Is Yachad right for my child?

Because individual needs vary, the first step

is to see if our Yachad Program is a good fit

for your child. Please contact Amy Bisnett,

inclusion specialist, at 315-445-2040, ext. 122.

Space is limited, so don’t delay!

early and/or late care. Children registered for

busing are required to ride every day. Daily

changes cannot be accommodated.

picked up closer to 8 a.m., while stops near

the JCC are picked up closer to 8:55 a.m. The

afternoon bus run begins shortly after 4 p.m.

and is finished by approximately 4:45 p.m. The

dropped off closer to 4:45 p.m.

may vary from week to week, with the gain or

loss of other campers on the route. We will

notify you the week prior to each session with

the approximate pick-up and drop-off times.

All routes end in the morning and begin in

the afternoon at the JCC. Again, campers

registered for busing must ride the bus daily.

This form must be completed and returned with your 2020 JCC Camp Joe & Lynne Romano registration forms.

Enrollment and Schedule Changes

Enrollment in camp is on a first come, first served basis. If you wish to enroll you must turn in a registration form accompanied

by a $25 registration fee and a deposit of $50 per each week of camp you are registering. No application will be accepted without

the appropriate fees.

If you would like to withdraw or decrease your schedule for camp you must do so in writing by the following dates.

• April 24 – Deadline to withdraw or decrease program with deposit returned.

• May 22 – Deadline to withdraw or decrease program; deposit is now non-refundable, balance minus deposit will be

Camp Tuition

• The first four weeks of camp are due no later than June 15.

Discounts

A 2% discount will be credited for each child’s camp tuition when more than one child from a family attends at least one session

in the same camp (both in School-Age Camp or both in ECDP Camp). This discount will be provided in the form of a voucher

after camp has ended and can only be applied to future JCC programming.

Absences/Switching Days

We are unable to adjust camp tuition for absences due to illness or holiday. We are also unable to “switch” days to provide

make-up days or so a child can participate in specific activities. Camp is a busy program with many different activities that are

planned well in advance.

JCC Membership

Being a JCC of Syracuse member is not a requirement to attend camp. However, a JCC membership affords you many benefits,

including significantly reduced camp tuition and a pool membership. Please refer to the Membership Section starting on p. 14

for prices and benefits offered with our Full-Facility (Fitness) and Non-Fitness membership options.

PLEASE NOTE: All memberships are a 12 month commitment.

I, the undersigned primary member, for myself and all

persons listed above, hereby agree to the following:

I am applying for membership with the Jewish

Community Center (JCC) of Syracuse. I agree to

abide by its rules and bylaws. I understand that all

members 18 years and older may participate in the

JCC’s annual meeting.

I understand that membership dues are payable in full

at the time of joining or renewal unless a payment plan

has been approved in advance. A payment plan only

specifies the manner in which payments will be made

and does not reflect a month-to-month membership

commitment. If paying by monthly automatic payments

from a credit card, I authorize the JCC of Syracuse to

automatically charge my credit card account for each

consecutive month of the plan.

I understand that membership dues are automatically

renewed each year unless I give notice in writing.

Note that the JCC of Syracuse reserves the right to

cancel a membership for any reason at any time with

appropriate notice. I understand that membership

is not transferable and membership dues are

non-refundable.

Trial and discounted promotional memberships are not

eligible for child care or other program discounts.

I have read and agree with these membership terms

our school-year program and carefully selected

college students staff our camp groups. These

skilled, trained counselors care about children

and offer guidance, support, encouragement,

enthusiasm and love.

Schedule

Our camp activity schedules are based

on a five-day week. To accommodate

varying family needs, we allow campers to

choose to join us for fewer days in a week

on Tuesday and Thursday or Monday,

Wednesday and Friday. Campers who

choose these lesser time options will get

to experience a wide variety, but not all, of

the activities summer camp offers. Tenokia

have the extended full-day option only.

Important pick-up information for

9 a.m. – 3:45 p.m. campers: If you also have

children attending the JCC’s School-Age Camp,

please come pick up your ECDP camper first by

Children are placed according to chronological

age so that we can offer a developmentally

appropriate and safe program. Absolutely

no exceptions can be allowed. All programs

(except off-site field trips for Gesher and

Yeladim campers) are held at the JCC. Each

group has their own individual, air-conditioned,

brightly lit and developmentally equipped room

to utilize as their special indoor home base.

regularly have a friendship circle and each age

level joins to celebrate Shabbat on Fridays. All

children attending the Early Childhood Camps

an opportunity to participate in daily activities,

which include:
