  • When registering for camp, payment arrangements will be made for total camp fees. Payment options include: cash, check, credit card payment in full, or a monthly credit card charge through June 15, 2021 for balance owed.


For registrations and camp additions submitted after May 31, 2021: 

  • Applications will require payment in full by cash, check, or credit card (Visa/MasterCard/Discover/American Express). 
  • No refunds will be granted after the beginning of a camp week or session. Deposit amounts will not be refunded. 
  • If a camp is added at a higher price, payment for the difference will be due at the time of registration. 
  • A $25 “change fee” may apply after June 1 for changing camps throughout the summer.
  • Parents are able to add a camp anytime through the registration process online at camp.jccdet.org


Changing Procedure:

Parents looking to drop a camp, contact Terrie Miller at tmiller@jccdet.org. All requests must be submitted via email to tmiller@jccdet.org  Verbal requests will not be accepted. The deadline for any changes is noon the Friday before the changed camp begins. A $25 fee will be applied to any change submitted after this deadline. Some camps are not eligible to be changed, please see a list of these camps below. A $25 change fee may also be applied after June 1 for changing camps throughout the summer.

If adding or changing an option results in an additional fee, the balance must accompany when the Add/Drop takes place. Deposits for dropped camps are non-refundable; no refunds will be granted after the beginning of a camp session/week. If a camp is dropped and another camp for a lower fee is added, the difference will be processed, if your JCC account has a zero balance. Refunds may take up to 4 to 6 weeks to process.
