What other information should you know?
Do I need to provide any additional information about my camper?
Please make sure you have logged into Camp Docs and completed your camper’s profile. Even if you have filled it out in past years, you will need to go back in to verify that the information is current. If your camper’s profile is not complete, you will be required to complete it before your camper can be admitted to camp.
Additionally, please be sure that your balance for the session is paid in full. If you have registered for the 3rd session, please pay your balance by Monday, June 20.
When and where can I drop off and pick up my camper?
- During regular drop of and pick up hours, please use the “Gesher Zone” door. This is the door on the far-right side of the building. There are flower windmills on either side of the sidewalk.
- Regular camp hours are from 9:00am-3:30pm. Campers can be dropped off beginning at 8:45am, and should be picked up between 3:30 and 3:45pm.
- If you have registered your camper for Extended Day, campers may be dropped off beginning at 7:45am and must be picked up no later than 5:45pm.
- If you do not pick up your children within these time periods, your card on file in camp docs will be charged a late pick up fee of $1/minute. We did not charge this fee during week one as a courtesy. This week we will be enforcing this strictly.
- If you are going to be late, please contact the JCC at 803-787-2023.
What does my camper need to bring?
Please see the attached document for a full list of what your camper will need daily at camp.
What if I have a question or need to reach the staff about my camper?
During the camp day, please contact the JCC at 803-787-2023. If it is a time-sensitive issue, please do not leave a voicemail, but rather ask the person answering the phone to take a handwritten message and give it to staff immediately.
Outside of camp hours, please email Dani at firstname.lastname@example.org or call and leave a voicemail at 803-787-2023 ext. 201. Email is the fastest way to get a response.
Is there an updated COVID policy?
YES. Please see attached document for a detailed policy.
Please note that a negative (at-home antigen) test, taken within 24 hours of the first day, will be required for your camper to attend. Free tests are available for pick up at the Katie & Irwin Kahn JCC front desk if you do not have or do not wish to use your own at-home test. A time/dated photo of the negative test will be requested at check in the first day. You may text a picture to Dani at 803-529-1373 or email to email@example.com, or be prepared to show a dated picture at drop off. Please make sure to include your camper’s full name with the picture. If you have more than one camper, please be sure that each test is clearly labeled.
The JCC Health Advisory Committee is composed of local physicians, one of whom works with DHEC and another who is a pediatrician. They have shared that there is a current surge among children that is more prevalent than at any other time in the pandemic. They strongly recommend that masks be worn when indoors and not actively eating or exercising.
It is our sincere hope that the current surge will pass and we will be able to roll back some of these precautions as we move into summer. Our goal is to provide the best camp experience while preventing COVID spread among Camp Gesher participants. Last year masks were required and we are pleased to report there were only a few isolated cases of COVID and there was NO community spread. We hope to provide similar results this summer. We appreciate your patience and support of our efforts to keep your children healthy and safe.
