Day 7 of Gratitude: Appreciating Myself | Days of Gratitude

How often do you thank yourself: The work you have done to become who you are, the values and traditions you have committed yourself to, the changes you have undertaken, the gifts you’ve been born with, the skills you’ve sharpened, the significance of your place in the world? Today, we invite you to thank yourself.

Dear Camp Families - The JCC Board of Directors has made the difficult decision not to run Camp Olam and Teen Camp this summer. As you may know, summer camps have still not been deemed essential by NYS and social distancing on a bus to Olam or on a motor boat at Teen Camp seemed nearly impossible.

Although we know we can't replace the Olam and Teen Camp experiences, we know there are families that will need childcare this summer. We are actively working to determine what options we may be able to provide to assist families looking for care for school-aged (K-6) children.

If your child was already registered for Camp Olam you may request a refund now, or you can wait to see if our alternative care plans suit your needs. All Teen Camp payments will be refunded in full. Please contact us at [email protected] to discuss. Thank you!

Day 6 of Gratitude: Thanks To Your Team | 10 Days of Gratitude

Making the world a better place doesn’t happen in a vacuum. When we act, we are always a part of a team that together strives to bring change. Today is the day to thank your work colleague, volunteer, employee, supervisor, donor, client and/or friend, and to remember that without them, we could not do the work we do.
