Summer camps still have questions as they prepare to give kids as close to a normal summer as they can

With Covid restrictions changing, summer camps are preparing for their summers.

The Jewish Community Center in Syracuse still awaits answers for some things.

Last summer kids were kept in pods and the playground was sanitized between use, but this year JCC wants to give the kids a fun summer.


While many things are changing like the playgrounds not being desperately sanitized and masks being required outside, the children will remain in pods and handwashing stations will still be all over. The camp is still waiting to hear if masks are required indoors.

The camp is not sure whether they are allowed to be at 100% capacity and have incredibly long waiting lists. They want kids to have a great summer after being quarantined and be able to build relationships with their peers.


JCC is still waiting to hear if health screenings are required and ask parents to monitor for any symptoms. Camp staff will be required to be vaccinated, but the camp will not require kids 12 and older to be, even if they become eligible.
