K – 8 Summer Camp

Welcome & Doing Jewish

Welcome to Camp at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco! JCCSF Camps provide quality experiences for youth that promote the development of meaningful bonds within in our community, build life skills and support the exploration of special interests.

At JCCSF Camps, campers will:

  • Increase self-confidence and explore their sense of self.
  • Gain interpersonal skills to take home as positive and engaged community members.
  • Build connections with their community by exploring the city of San Francisco.

Doing Jewish at JCCSF Camps

The following quotations highlight the seven core values of the JCCSF. Collectively, they are known as the Sheva Middot, or seven core values and they provide the foundation for the Jewish values embedded in much of our camp programming.

K’lal Yisrael – Jewish Inclusiveness

I make this covenant with all who are here this day and also with all who are not here. –Deuteronomy 29:13-14

Ruah – Spirit

Not by might, not by power, but by my spirit. –Zechariah 4:6

Torah – Torah

It is a tree of life to those that hold fast to it. Its ways are delight, and all its paths are peace. –Proverbs 3:17-18

Hahnasat Orhim – Welcoming Strangers

Let your house be open wide.  –Pirkei Avot 1:5

Tzedek – Justice

Until we are all free, we are none of us free. –Emma Lazarus

Tikkun Ha-olam – Repair of the World

How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world. –Anne Frank

Re-ut – Friendship

Each of us bears the imprint of a friend met along the way, in each the trace of each. –Primo Levi

All programs at the JCCSF are built on these Jewish values and traditions to create a fun and loving environment for kids. We focus on Tikkun Ha-olam (repair of the world), Tzedek (justice), Re-ut (friendship), Ruah (spirit) and Shalom (peace) in our community.

Our campers participate in an all-camp Shabbat celebration every Friday. The celebration includes fresh baked challah (braided bread), singing, dancing, stories and lots of Ruah (spirit)! Every week there will be different camps demonstrating their new skills and talents at all-camp Shabbat – families are welcome to join us!

Families will receive a welcome email on the Wednesday prior to each camp session. Emails will include a link to a web page with detailed information including drop-off and pick-up procedures, weekly highlights for each camp, and scheduling notes such as swim days and field trips.

Emergency Communications

In case of emergency, JCCSF staff will arrange a meeting place for parents. Parents and guardians will be notified via phone, text message or email of such emergencies. If we are unable to contact primary guardians, we will use the designated emergency contact on file. We also keep copies of parent-guardian contacts in various locations of the JCCSF campus. We will make every attempt to proactively contact you if there is such a situation.

JCCSF Camps take all precautions for disaster or emergency by:

  • Participating in evacuation drills prior to summer and throughout the summer.
  • Routinely inspecting emergency and first aid kits.
  • Coordinating with the larger agency of JCCSF to ensure compliance.
  • Training and certifying staff in First Aid/CPR/AED/Infectious Diseases classes.
  • Identifying alternate evacuation sites if the need should arise.

Hours & Drop-Off / Pick-Up Procedures

Camp Hours

Camp runs Monday – Friday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm (No camp on Monday, July 4th).

Extended Care

Extended care is not a drop-in program and is not offered on a day-to-day basis. You must register for Extended Care in advance and for each camp session.

Campers in AM Care may arrive anytime between 8:00 – 9:00 am. Parents or guardians must bring campers inside the building and sign them in each morning. You may not leave your child unattended in the building or drop them off in front of the building.

Please note that we use different counseling staff for AM Care. The staff member in the morning is not your child’s daytime counselor. If you need to speak to your child’s regular camp staff, please call the office during regular camp hours.

First Day Check-In

There is no curbside drop-off on the first day of each camp session. You must come into the atrium at 3200 California Street for check-in on the first day of your camp session. Camps that are located at Paul Goode Field check in at that location.

Check-in is in the atrium and begins at 8:15 am, however camp does not begin until 9:00 am. You must walk your camper into the classroom after check-in; campers will be allowed into the rooms at 8:40 AM.

On the Monday mornings when your camper is beginning a new camp session, no matter if they have been at JCCSF Camps already this summer, you must walk your child into the building at 3200 California Street and go through the check-in process. During check-in, you will:

  • Make sure we have correct and updated health information for your child
  • Complete a signed waiver
  • Meet camp staff
  • Add authorized pick-ups to your list
  • Receive a camper T-shirt
  • Receive a dashboard placard to use for complimentary parking in the JCCSF garage during drop-off and pick-up or during the curbside drop-off and pick-up process
  • Deliver medications or special instructions regarding your child

If your camper is enrolled in AM Care, check-in directly at 8:00 am. AM Care is not a drop-in program. You must register for this program in advance and it often fills up. To add extended care, please complete our online registration process.

Dashboard Placards

You will receive a dashboard placard during first-day check-in that is valid for that session of camp. You may request as many placards as you will need for transporting your child to and from camp. The camp placard is needed for the following:

  • Complimentary parking in our garage for 20 minutes during drop-off and pick-up times
  • Curbside drop-off and pick-up at our drive-through

Drop-Off Procedures

Except for the first day of each camp session (when you must walk your camper into the atrium for check-in), there are two ways to drop-off your camper: walk with them to their camp room or drop them off at our curbside drop-off.

If you choose to bring your camper into their homeroom, you can do so between 8:40 – 9:00 am. The JCCSF is served by many MUNI lines, we have bike parking outside or you can park in the JCCSF parking garage (using your parking placard for 20 minutes of complimentary parking).

If you choose to use our curbside drop-off, please reference this page for the specific drop-off location for your camp.

  • Make sure that you display your parking placard on your dashboard so that camp and security staff can easily identify you as a camp family and help facilitate your curbside process.
  • If you are driving, please do not get out of your car. Camp staff will be available to open the door and help your camper out of their car seat or seatbelt.
  • There is no overlap with Preschool camp drop-off. You must walk both campers into to their rooms or go through the drop-off for each camper.
  • For the Walnut Street drop-off, please be advised that for safety, you may only enter by making a right turn onto Walnut Street from California Street and turning right into our curbside drop-off. You will not be allowed to make a left turn into the curbside drop-off if you are coming south from Sacramento Street.

Again, curbside drop-off is not available on the first day of a camp session. You must bring your camper into their room.

Pick-Up Procedures

Campers will only be released to parents or adults whom you have authorized in writing to pick up your child. If your child will be picked up by someone not already on your list, you must notify us in advance by emailing camp@jccsf.org. You can also add more people to your authorized list during Check-In on the first day of camp. If you need to pick up your camper before the end of the camp day, please call the Camp Hotline (415.563.6608) to make arrangements. When you arrive, go to the Camp Office to sign out your camper. Be prepared to show ID and camp staff will direct you to your camper.

If you have more than one camper with different pick-up procedures, you will not need to go to both locations. Your younger camper will be brought to the drive-through for curbside pick-up. We will confirm this logistic at Check-In on the first day of camp.

If you have not picked up your camper by the end of your pick-up time, your child will be taken to the office where they will wait while we try to reach you.

Curbside pickup is available at our Walnut Street drive-through from 3:40 – 4:00 pm. Musical Theater, and Sports curbside pick-up is available from 4:00 – 4:15 pm. Some helpful tips:

For safety, you may only enter by making a right turn onto Walnut Street from California Street and turning right into our curbside drop-off. You will not be allowed to make a left turn into the curbside drop-off if you are coming south from Sacramento Street.

Make sure that you display your parking placard on your dashboard so that camp and security staff can easily identify you as a camp family and help facilitate your curbside process. Please be sure your camper’s name is clearly written.

Be prepared to show valid ID for when signing out your camper.

If you are driving, please do not get out of your car. Camp staff will be available to open the door and help your camper into their car seat or seatbelt.

If you are arriving by public transportation, bicycle or walking, you may walk to the curbside pickup from the pedestrian gate on California Street, just west of the garage entrance.

Absences/Early Pickup

Please notify the camp office via the Camp Parent Hotline (415.563.6608) or email (camp@jccsf.org) at any time if your child will not be attending camp, will be late to camp or will be picked up early.

If you need to pick up your camper before the end of the camp day, please make arrangements with the Camp Office to ensure that your camper is not offsite when you arrive.

If you wish to pick up your camper early, we ask that you please come and pick them up in the camp office. Early pick-up will not be available after 3:15.

Health & Safety

COVID-19

The JCCSF follows the guidance of the SFDPH on issues related to COVID-19. We will re-evaluate our policies as new information becomes available. View our full Youth Program COVID-19 FAQs.

All campers 5 years old and up are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by the first day of camp. Proof of vaccination will be required.

All campers are required to wear a mask while indoors except while eating, drinking, or swimming. Masks are also required while outdoors on JCCSF property, however, they are optional while offsite. Please let your camp unit head know your child’s preference.

Medications

Please be in touch with the camp office before coming to camp if your child needs to be given medication (prescriptions, over-the-counter, homeopathic or vitamins) during the camp day. We are not a staffed medical facility and cannot guarantee we can accommodate each medication schedule or need. Please keep in mind that there is no medical staff on site, but we do have an RN on call. For camp to administer any medications, the following must be provided:

  • Signed permission
  • Directions for administering the medication that match those labeled on the bottle
  • Medications clearly marked with the camper’s name and physician’s name
  • Medications in their original container (no plastic baggies please)

All medications will be locked in and dispensed by the Camp Office. We keep records of each time a medication is dispensed. We cannot give any medication, including over-the-counter medication without your written permission.

PLEASE DO NOT SEND MEDICATION IN YOUR CAMPER’S LUNCH OR BACKPACK.

Campers may keep asthma inhalers.

EpiPens

If your camper has an EpiPen, please make sure that you check it in with the front office so that we can record it, and ensure that it is with your camper at all times. EpiPens not checked into the office, and left in camper’s backpacks run the risk of not being with your camper if needed. All EpiPens will be given to lead counselors after they are checked in and will always stay with the camper’s group.

Medical Emergencies/Injuries

In case of a medical emergency, you have already given your consent to allow the camp to seek emergency medical treatment. If an emergency arises, we:

  • Assess the situation
  • Call 911, if necessary
  • Contact the parents or guardian, then the child’s emergency contact if the parent cannot be reached
  • Transport the child to a medical facility if necessary and parents cannot be reached
  • Stay with the child until parent or emergency contact arrives

We will call all primary contacts listed on the registration page. If we are unable to contact guardians via telephone, we will attempt the emergency contacts. If necessary, we will use email and text messages secondarily.

If a child is injured and requires only minor first aid, we will treat the child and call the parents or guardians to let them know.

Head Bumps

Any camper that sustains a head bump during camp will be brought to the office and monitored. Parents or guardians will be notified.

Illness

If your child is ill, please keep them at home. While we recognize the difficulty this poses for working parents, we are not equipped to care for sick campers.

Parents will be asked to pick up any camper with a fever, stomach ailment, lice or infectious disease. If a camper simply does not feel well, but does not have a fever, we will allow them to rest briefly in the office under observation. If they do not feel better, we will contact parents and ask that the sick child be picked up from camp.

A camper may not attend camp when he/she presents any of the following symptoms:

  • Fever more than 98.6⁰ Fahrenheit. Camper may not return to camp until there has been no fever for 24 hours
  • Excessive sneezing, coughing, runny nose or difficulty breathing
  • Unidentified rash
  • Ear infection not yet seen by a physician
  • Vomiting or diarrhea
  • Lice. Campers may not return to camp until they are egg and nit free.
  • Conjunctivitis (pink eye, red or crusty eyes). Campers may not return to camp until 24 hours after the start of antibiotic treatment.

You must notify camp of any contagious conditions (lice, conjunctivitis, strep throat, etc.) so we may notify other families that their children may have been exposed.

Sun Safety

To prevent sunburns, please apply sunscreen to your camper each morning, even if it is foggy or cloudy outside. We also have extra sunscreen at camp, and will make sure campers reapply sunscreen during the day when we are at the park or on a field trip. Please notify the Camp Office if your camper is allergic to sunscreen.

Behavior Expectations

On the first day of each session, we will share with campers our expectations and consequences for inappropriate behavior. Although we always hope for appropriate behavior at camp, challenges do occur. Families will be kept informed of and involved in any problems that arise. Camp staff is trained to address behavior issues in a positive manner. The JCCSF reserves the right to suspend or dismiss any child from the camp program if the JCCSF concludes in its sole discretion that the child’s conduct is disruptive to the camp program.

Mandated Reporting

In the state of California, all professionals who work with children are “mandated reporters” of suspected child abuse, and as such, are required by law to report “reasonable suspicion” of child abuse to either a law enforcement agency or a county child protective agency. This law was created to protect children and to provide services for families. Child abuse (including physical abuse, sexual abuse, and emotional or physical neglect) must be reported when a legally mandated reporter, such as our camp staff, has knowledge of or observes a child in his or her professional capacity, or within the scope of his or her employment, drawing when appropriate on his or her training and experience, to suspect child abuse. The JCCSF camp staff is experienced and trained in assessing situations that may lead them to make a child abuse referral, which includes, but is not limited to, the following: physical indicators of abuse, behavioral/psychological indicators displayed by the child during their time at camp, environmental problems, parents’ suspicions and statements made by the child.

Food at Camp

Kashrut (Food) Policy

The JCCSF maintains a policy respectful of Kashrut, Jewish dietary laws. The laws of Kashrut prohibit the mixing of milk and meat and prohibit certain foods, such as pork and shellfish. In adherence with our policy, all food served at camp is either strictly kosher or vegetarian. We request that campers do not bring pork or shellfish into the JCCSF. This includes pepperoni, salami or ham sandwiches.

Nut Policy & Food Allergies

ALL NUTS AND PEANUTS ARE PROHIBITED AT JCCSF CAMPS.

Please do not send your child to camp with a lunch or snack that includes any nut products. This is to protect the safety of our campers and staff with severe allergies. If you are looking for a peanut butter alternative, please consider Sun Butter, a spread made from sunflower seeds. All food that is offered at camp is nut free. Please be sure to inform us if your child has any food allergies. Staff will do their best to accommodate your child and when possible, offer alternative choices for a child with food allergies. You may wish to send your child to camp with a snack if you have concerns. We cannot guarantee a completely nut free environment, but we will do our best.

Lunch

All campers must bring lunch to camp each day in a reusable bag or lunch box, clearly marked with their name. Do not forget to include a beverage. We are unable to provide refrigeration or reheating for any lunches. We will notify you in advance if we will be providing lunch. Please be mindful of the kashrut and nut policies when packing lunch.

Snack

We provide a healthy snack each afternoon. Please pack a morning snack in your child’s lunchbox, especially if your child tends to get hungry early in the day. If your child has special dietary needs or food allergies, make sure to include them on the health form.

T-shirts, Prohibited Items & Lost Items

T-Shirts

Camp t-shirts are ordered for each camper according to the size indicated on their camp registration form and will be given to your child during the first day of their first session. It is important for campers to wear their camp t-shirts on field trips so they can be easily identified. Please label your child’s t-shirt.

Prohibited Items

For the safety of your child and the other campers, we do not allow the following items at camp:

  • Live animals or pets
  • Electronic games
  • Trading cards, including Pokémon, Magic, and collecting cards
  • Personal iPod, CD or MP3 player
  • Jewelry or other valuables
  • Cell phones (Outbound campers may bring cell phones on off-site field trips only)
  • Drugs or alcohol
  • Weapons, including any type of pocketknife
  • Lighters or cigarettes
  • Stuffed animals or dolls
  • Personal toys, including sports equipment

We will ask campers to inventory their belongings in the presence of staff if the health and safety of other campers and staff indicates the need. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen or ruined items.

Lost & Found Policy

We encourage parents to label all items that will be coming to camp. The JCCSF is not responsible for any theft, lost items or items left unattended. We understand that things might get left behind, and if we find them they will be put in our lost & found area. Any items left unclaimed for more than 3 weeks will be donated and cleared. The lost & found will be emptied and donated.

Hours & Drop-Off / Pick-Up Procedures

Camp Hours

Camp runs Monday – Friday from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm

AM Care is available from 8:30 – 9:00 am

PM Care is available from 3:30 – 5:00 pm

Car Placards, Drive-Through & JCCSF Parking Garage

Your placard and designated drop-off and pick-up times will be emailed to you the Wednesday before your child’s first day at camp. Drop off and pick up will either be through the Walnut street drive-through, or in the preschool classroom. One vaccinated adult may drop off or pick up indoors. Free parking in the garage is available for a half-hour for in-person drop-off and pick up. Please have your placard on the dashboard, so security will know you’re here for preschool. Indoor pick-up and drop-off only for am and pm extended care hours, drive-through is not available at these times.

It is important to have your car placards visible on the dashboard during drive-through. This helps security and preschool staff identify preschool parents/caregivers.

Drive Through Procedures

Please see the drive-through schedule for your child’s drive-through time and place.

As we are sharing drive-through with other camps it is important to adhere to the drop-off and pick-up times. The K – 8 camp counselors you see in drive-through after 8:45 are not part of the preschool summer camp and are not authorized to take your child.

If you need to pick up early, please email your teachers or call Rose at 415.697.3437 to arrange a pick-up time at the preschool door on the 2nd floor, or the Walnut drive-through entrance.

Classroom Rosters

By the Wednesday afternoon prior to the start of each weekly session, new families will receive an email indicating your child’s teachers, classmates and classroom name for that upcoming session. If you do not receive this email by end of Thursday, please let Mina know as soon as possible.

Please note: If your child is enrolled at the Diller Preschool this fall, his/her summer class placement is not necessarily the same as in the fall. Classrooms, teachers, and classmates might not remain the same in the fall.

Persons Authorized to Pick-up Your Child

We will only release your child to persons designated as authorized on your preschool summer camp registration form. If someone other than those indicated will be picking up your child on any particular day, you must notify Mina Bahrami (mbahrami@jccsf.org) in advance, in writing. Please let us know the person’s full name and be sure that he/she can provide photo ID and has a car placard if driving. If you would like to permanently add or delete an authorized person, please do so online on your online account and let Mina know.

Sign in/Sign out

Each child must be signed in and out each day by a parent or an adult who has been previously and officially authorized to do so by the parent/caregiver. This is a state licensing mandate. Both the full signature (initials are not sufficient, and the signature must be legible) and the time of pick up must be included. If you forget to sign in you will be notified that you need to return as soon as possible to do so.

No Dog Policy

Based on the State of California Community Care Licensing Division requirement, no dogs will be allowed on any preschool site at any time. Those families who bring their dogs to the preschool at arrival or dismissal time must keep their dogs in the car or tied up away from the perimeter of the preschool. No dogs may be tied up in the driveway at the Diller Preschool.

Health & Safety

Physician’s Report

If your child is new to the Helen Diller Family Preschool, you should have received a Physician’s Report with your email confirmation. This report must be signed by your child’s physician and be submitted to the office no later than May 27, 2022 in order to meet licensing regulations and to allow your child to attend. Your child will not be permitted to attend camp until these forms have been received.

Health & Safety

The health and safety of your child is our primary concern. If your child is ill, please keep them home, regardless of whether the symptoms are related to COVID-19. If they develop a fever and have a temperature of 100⁰ Fahrenheit or more, your child will be sent home.

COVID-19

The JCCSF follows the guidance of the SFDPH on issues related to COVID-19. We will re-evaluate our policies as new information becomes available. View our full Youth Program COVID-19 FAQs.

All campers 5 years old and up are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by the first day of camp. Proof of vaccination will be required.

All campers are required to wear a mask while indoors except while eating, drinking, napping or swimming. Masks are also required while outdoors on JCCSF property, however, they are optional while offsite. Please let your camp unit head know your child’s preference.

Returning to Camp After Illness

If your child gets tested for COVID-19, they can return after:

  • A negative test AND
  • 24 hours with no fever without taking medicines to lower a fever, like acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin)
  • 3 days since symptoms have improved. The symptoms do not have to be completely better.
  • Families must show proof of their child’s negative test.

If your child is not tested, they can return after:

  • A doctor’s note is provided, clearing them to return to school AND
  • without taking medicines to lower a fever, like acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin).

If your child gets sick while at camp, they will be removed from the classroom and supervised by an administrator, where they can wait while we contact you. You’ll need to get them right away in order to ensure the safety of other campers and staff. Parents will also be asked to pick up any camper with a stomach ailment, lice or other infectious disease.

Children may not attend camp when they present any of the following symptoms:

  • Fever of 100⁰ Fahrenheit or more. Children may not return to camp until there has been no fever for 72 hours
  • Excessive sneezing, coughing, runny nose or difficulty breathing
  • Unidentified rash
  • Ear infection not yet seen by a physician
  • Vomiting or diarrhea
  • Lice. Campers may not return to camp until they are egg and nit free.
  • Conjunctivitis (pink eye, red or crusty eyes). Campers may not return to camp until 24 hours after the start of antibiotic treatment.

You must notify camp of any contagious conditions (lice, conjunctivitis, strep throat, etc.) so we may notify other families that their children may have been exposed.

To protect the health of other children and our staff, California State Licensing Requirements prohibit us from allowing any child showing definite signs of illness to come to or stay at school.

If you suspect your child has been exposed to any contagious disease (i.e. chickenpox, or measles), please inform the staff at once; so that we may watch for symptoms and we may warn other parents, especially pregnant women for whom these diseases pose a special risk. Medical Alerts for contagious diseases will be posted as quickly as possible at the school site and families will be notified of potential exposure. We will not disclose the name of the child. See the list following for diseases that must be reported.

Camp Dismissal Policy

Our child-centered approach seeks to accommodate a wide range of individual differences; it is only on rare occasions that a child’s behavior may warrant the need to find a more suitable setting. Accordingly, the JCCSF reserves the right to dismiss your child from the summer camp program if the JCCSF concludes, at its sole discretion, that we are not able to accommodate his/her needs.

Food at Camp

Lunch and snack time are important times in the child’s preschool day, as it is not only a time to eat a nutritious meal, but a time for children to socialize with their friends and the preschool staff in small groups. Parents must provide lunch. Preschool will provide two snacks during preschool, and a snack for EDP. These times also give children the opportunity to practice eating on their own and learning about nutrition and healthy foods. We encourage families to bring a nutritious lunch and snack, including a drink (labeled with your child’s name) to camp. You can either bring a labeled water bottle or staff will provide water to accompany lunch if your child wants it. We also ask you to observe the Jewish Kashrut Policy by not sending any pork or shellfish in your child’s lunch. All other foods are acceptable. We encourage you to provide small pieces of your child’s favorite foods, paying particular attention to limiting the amounts of sugar and processed foods you send. Please help us with the effort by not including candy or sugary desserts in your child’s lunch. Leftovers, sandwiches, yogurt, macaroni and cheese, cheese sticks, crackers, fruits and vegetables are some suggestions for lunches.

Our preschool is NUT FREE, so please do not send your child to school with nuts in any form in his/her lunch.

Clothing & Footwear

Change of Clothing

Please send your child on the first day of camp with a complete change of clothing in a large ziplock bag with your child’s name clearly marked. Be sure to label each article of clothing. This should include: extra masks, pants, shirt, socks, underwear, shoes and a sweatshirt/sweater. Please remember that children at our camp play with mud, water, glue and paint. Be sure to send your child in clothes that can get stained and dirty. If your child comes home with wet or dirty extra clothes, be sure to replenish the extra clothes supply the next day.
