Fee Reduction

Financial assistance is available for families who find the full cost of membership and/or camp difficult to manage. To arrange for a confidential interview, please check the fee adjustment box on your online registration form and you will be contacted for an appointment. All applicants must provide proof of income (2018 tax return) at the time of the appointment to be considered for camp scholarships.  Requests for fee adjustments must be in by April 15 and are available for JCC members only.

Policies for Leaving Children at JCC Facilities

It is with the safety of children and youth in mind that we have set the following guidelines:

  • Children 7 and under must be actively supervised by a parent/adult guardian (18+) at all times.
  • Children 7-12 must be participating in a scheduled program/activity or be accompanied by a parent/adult (18+).
  • Youth ages 13 -18 may use specific JCC facilities without an adult present.
  • Youth ages 13-15 who have completed the Fit 4 Teens program have full use of our Fitness Center.

Medical History

Medical history must be provided before your child can attend any Camp Butwin or CIT program. Camp Butwin uses CampDoc, a confidential online medical history tracker to collect this information.  You will receive an email with instructions on how to use the CampDoc service.

Food and Kashrut Policy

All food served at any St. Paul JCC camp or program is certified kosher. We ask that no pork or shellfish products be brought in lunches from home.
