Online Enrollment for 2021 is Scheduled to Open February 18, 2021
J Camp is partnering with CampDoc.com for online enrollment and our electronic health record system. The CampDoc system helps us consolidate and integrate camper registration and health information into a centralized and secure location. And it’s easy for parents to update their child’s information each year.
To Enroll in J Camp
When Enrollment begins, click on the Enroll Now button below. If your child is a return camper, simply enter your email address and CampDoc password to get started. If you are new to J Camp, follow the prompts to create an account. You will be able to enroll your camper, select a camp session and pay your deposit online. You will also be able to set up your monthly payment schedule with all final payments due by July 15, 2021. Once enrolled, you will receive additional emailed information about how to complete or update your camper’s health profile. You will receive periodic notifications from CampDoc.com if you have an outstanding balance or have not completed required health information.
- Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Microsoft Edge are preferred browsers. Internet Explorer will not work with CampDoc.
- Campdoc.com will provide you with an email receipt of your child’s camp enrollment.
- You may also enroll online to add camps and services throughout the summer.
- If you need to cancel or change a camp registration you will need to call (913) 327-8004 or e-mail us.
We do not have a paper enrollment option. If you have trouble enrolling online please call (913) 327-8004 for assistance. If you are applying for financial assistance, please enroll online and notify us via e-mail that you are submitting a financial assistance application.
All campers are required to have current health information on our electronic Health Information system, CampDoc.com. Families are able to submit camper information into a secure, online database, so Camp Staff can instantly access vital medical information. After you enroll for Camp, CampDoc.com will send a link to complete medical information, allergies, medication, and emergency contact information. Those families who have already completed a CampDoc.com profile, will be able to update their prior information and sign the annual permission form. Licensing and accreditation require that we have families update the information before each camp season. All information in the health records is kept confidential and health details shared with staff only when necessary for proper care and safety.
During J Camp, Blast Off, and Last Blast sessions, June 1 - August 13, Campers can choose to bring their own lunch or lunch is available on a pre-order basis to purchase (not available for Ma’asim Tovim Camp).
The Jewish Community Center is able to support a limited number of children with special needs for J Camp, primarily through funding by Sasone and the Jewish Federation of Greater Kansas City. If your child has special needs or requires assistance to successfully function in a group setting and wants to attend J Camp, before enrolling, contact the appropriate J Camp Director to request an application for Para assistance. In addition to the J Camp enrollment fee, families are asked to pay a portion of the Para cost. Space is limited. Financial assistance is available for Para support.
