TERMS OF ENROLLMENT

  1. In accepting applications, the JCC reserves the right to place a Participant according to their own age-level and readiness standards in appropriate participant groups. The Director should be made aware of any special needs or limitations of the individual child. Please contact your camp director to discuss your child’s situation and/or specific challenges.
  2. Registration applications from any JCC accounts with an outstanding balances will not be processed. All outstanding balances must be paid in full before the registration application is accepted. All payments must be collected prior to a child attending camp unless you have set up a custom payment plan.
  3. Program fees that are not paid by the payment deadline will result in forfeiture and reapplication may be necessary. Participant WILL NOT be allowed to participate if balances are unpaid past their payment deadline. Payment deadlines are noted on the Participant registration confirmation.
  4. Without exception, all Payment Plans will be charged to the card on file or ACH account on the Payment Plan Dates. If the card on file is declined the enrolling parent will be notified and has 48 hours to provide another credit card. Failure to meet Payment Plan Dates is considered default and the participant(s) may not be allowed to attend programs. Delinquent balances will be sent to a collection agency.
  5. A) The JCC assumes that the parent submitting the application on behalf of the participant has financial responsibility for the entire account. The JCC will not be responsible for split payments between two parents or guardians. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian registering the child to set up a mutually agreed upon payment plan from both parties. Failure to pay from one party will result in financial responsibility being assigned to the other party, or the child will be withdrawn from the program. B) If a split party requires financial assistance, both parties must apply separately through the financial aid application process. If only one party needs assistance and qualifies, the financial assistance will only be granted towards his/her portion of the bill.
  6. The JCC is unable to credit tuition for absences or temporary withdrawals.
  7. The JCC reserves the right to cancel any program due to insufficient enrollment. In the event of cancellation due to insufficient enrollment, camp fees may be transferred to another camp or refunded without penalty.
  8. The Director and the JCC CEO reserves the right to dismiss without a refund or to cancel the enrollment of any child whose mental condition, conduct, influence or behavior is deemed unsatisfactory, or not in the best interest of the program.
  9. There will be no tobacco products, cigarettes, alcohol, marijuana, or illegal drugs at camp. Any participant caught smoking, drinking alcohol, or using illegal drugs on camp property will be dismissed from camp immediately.

A $43 Application fee will be charged for each application. Scholarships awardees will be notified no later than May 15, 2020.
  12. I understand that the JCC programs do not provide participant medical insurance. Each child must have personal health insurance. Participant medical costs incurred during the session including prescriptions, doctors’ visits or hospital bills will be covered by the patient’s insurance. If the participant’s insurance does not cover the expenses, I understand that I will be billed directly to cover the expenses.
  13. I understand that I am providing my consent to allow JCC to allow my child to see a movie with the rating of PG. Movies of a violent or sexual nature, as per the view of the camp director(s), will not be shown.
  14. Colorado law requires all participants attending Colorado licensed child cares to be vaccinated against certain diseases, unless a medical exemption is filed. As a Colorado state licensed child care facility, we require that all participants attending JCC Denver programs be up to date with their vaccinations as outlined by Colorado state law. All participants and staff members are required to submit their immunization record prior to the start date of their specific program(s). As a private organization, JCC Denver is not required to recognize religious or personal exemptions. JCC Denver bases this decision on the responsibility to protect all children and adults associated with JCC Denver from infections that can be prevented or ameliorated by immunizations.
  15. Activity Limitations: Inclement weather during the session can require that some activity periods are cancelled. We will reschedule cabin groups for certain activities such as horseback riding, archery, pool, and ropes course, if time and schedule allow. Mini and Baktanna Participants are scheduled at least once for all activities that they are eligible to participate in. These programs are a “taste of camp” experience and the short time frame does not often allow for Participants to get to do many of the activities more than once.
  16. Visitation: There are no visiting days during camp sessions. This policy is in place because parent visitations prove to be not only incredibly disruptive to the “Participant experience” but also tend to create or intensify homesickness.
  17. Valuables: Camp provides all meals and snacks when Participants are on-site and off-site on road trips. It is unnecessary for your child to bring money to camp. Please see list of things not to bring to camp. Activity is not responsible for lost or damaged personal property. No cell phones or electronics are permitted at camp. Any electronic items will be held for safe keeping if found, and delivered back to Participants at the end of the session.
  18. Items not permitted at camp: There are items that can cause environmental or behavioral problems at camp, and those that we are simply not licensed to allow. Please read this list carefully and ensure that NONE of these items make it into your child’s luggage.
    • Food
    • Money (other than for air travel)
    • Electronic devices (other than for plane travel or bar/bat mitzvah studies)
    • Silly string
    • Knives or any other weapons of any shape or size
    • Roller blades and/or skateboards
    • Clothing that advertises alcohol, sex, drugs, or cigarettes is unsuitable dress for our camp community
  19. Media Release: JCC Denver will be taking video, photographs, and using audio recordings of participants during Activities. These promotional mediums are used for recruiting and publicity purposes throughout the year. In the Participant application you can agree or disagree to allow Participant to be used in electronic or print media, at the reasonable discretion of the Jewish Community Center of Denver, without liability to JCC Denver, its counselors and employees. Examples include, but are not limited to: brochures, postcards, JCC Denver websites, Facebook.
