Cherryvale Day Camp Summer 2022

Updated as of 11/15/2022

Cherryvale Day Camp was able to have a safe and successful summer during the summer of 2020 & 2021, and throughout the 2020-2021 year, during our Monday Funday program. As we plan for summer 2022, we have taken what we have learned to continue ensuring the health and safety of our campers, staff, and families. You’ll find that while camp doesn’t look quite like it used to, we have found wonderful ways to educate and entertain our campers safely. Below are the answers to frequently asked questions related to the updated changes to our camp. If you have any further questions, please contact our camp team:

Julia Paeglis, Director of Camp, Teens, & Youth

How are you able to open?

We are licensed as a year-round school-aged childcare center. Childcare centers are considered essential services by the state, even during a stay at home order, and we have been given the approval to open by Boulder County Public Health and State Licensing.

What extra precautions are you taking to ensure the health and safety of campers? 

The health and safety of our campers, families, staff, and community members is our top priority. 

In accordance with state and local regulations and guidelines, we have switched to a small bunk size camp model of up to 15 campers with 2 counselors. These bunks will not interact unless we are outside. We are in frequent communication with the Boulder County Public Health Department and Licensing as well as other local, state, and national agencies, including the American Camp Association and JCC Association. We will be following all public health guidelines. 

Handbook and Waiver

For this new camp structure, we have a supplemental handbook and additional waiver that all families must review and sign to attend camp. 

The COVID-19 Camp Family Reopening Handbook details our summer policies and procedures, including daily camper and staff health screenings, our illness, food, and handwashing policies, our mask policy, and many others. Because this is an evolving and dynamic situation, it is likely that we will need to update our handbook throughout the summer. If changes are made, a new copy of the current policy based on the most up-to-date guidelines will be communicated to parents via email. 

What is your mask policy?

Participants will be required to have a mask with them at all times. At this time participants must wear masks at all times while indoors with the exception of eating or drinking. The Cherryvale Day Camp staff are required to wear Boulder JCC approved masks that are provided and laundered by the J. 

What is your cancellation policy, and what if Cherryvale Day Camp needs to cancel camp for a reason related to COVID-19?

Due to COVID-19, Cherryvale Day Camp has updated its standard cancellation policy to include: 

  • Cherryvale Day Camp Cancellation: If we need to cancel a camp session prior to the start of a camp, families will receive a full refund. This includes any circumstances under which a COVID-19 related change in local, state, or federal regulations makes it impossible for the Boulder JCC to operate our camp. 
  • In the event that we need to close a session already in progress for more than 3 days, families will receive a credit or refund for the unused portion of the camp session beyond the 3 days to be used through summer 2022. 
  • COVID-19 Health Cancellation: As defined within current Boulder County Public Health guidelines or the BJCC Illness Policy, if a camper is diagnosed with COVID-19 or has any COVID-19 related symptoms and as a result must miss more than 3 days of camp, that family will receive a credit to be used through summer 2022 or a refund for the unused portion of the camp beyond the 3 days. 

In all other instances, Cherryvale Day Camp’s cancellation policy is as follows: 

  • Transfers: To transfer to a different week, please email julia.paeglis@bouderjcc.org  with your child’s name and the names and dates of the sessions you desire to transfer the child to and from. Transfers that can be accommodated will be made at no additional cost. All transfers are dependent upon the availability of the desired camp and can only be made if transferring does not impact our ability to run your current session. If desired sessions are not available within the current year, refer to our cancellation policy. 
  • Cancellation: If you decide to cancel after registering, please email julia.paeglis@boulderjcc.org  as soon as possible. If you cancel fewer than 14 days before the start date of your session, you will not be refunded but can transfer your tuition to another session (if available) at no additional cost. If you cancel more than 14 days before the start of the camp session, you will receive a full refund.
