Summer Child Care

It is with sadness and disappointment that we tell you that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are not be able to run JCC Summer Camps as we had originally planned. We have created new Summer Child Care programs which comply with Utah and Salt Lake County requirements, as well as the emergency conditions issued by the Bureau of Childcare Licensing. We know that these programs are not summer camp as we all know them, but we assure you that we will create a fun program for your child and hope that if you need care this summer, you will feel confident that this will be a safe and enjoyable program for your children.

Registration is now open to JCC Members and the public!

Join us this summer for child care at the JCC! We offer a safe, fun, and stimulating environment with a staff dedicated to ensuring a great summer for each of our participants. Children will participate in a wide variety of activities including time outdoors, arts and crafts, team building and more. Childcare will be held from 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM

Please read below for details indicating how this summer will be different from the traditional Bernie Camp experience:

  • All participants will go through a health screening before entering the building. Parents will not accompany children inside
  • Group sizes will be smaller than what children and families have experienced in the past
  • All groups will be mixed gender identities
  • Children will spend much of the day in their assigned “den” but will also have scheduled outdoor time
  • At this time, there will be no off-site field trips or overnights
  • At this time, there will be no swim lessons or pool time
  • The programs will not be offering AM or PM Extended Care
