J. Academy Camp

In August 2017, J. Academy Camp will be running for the  8th year! J. Academy Camp is a unique sleepover camp for kids (ages 8 to 16) from Russian-speaking Jewish families in the GTA. The campers will enjoy a 12-day experience filled with outdoor activities, experiential education programs and specialties. Over the past 7 years, J. Academy has grown from 70 campers to 200 in 2016 selling out in less than a week!  


Camp runs August 20th, 2017 - September 1st, 2017


The camp aims to connect children and teens from Russian-speaking families, introduce them to the Jewish world’s culture and help them discover their Jewish roots through their personal engagements in various creative arts, interactive activities and sports. Through an innovative variety of experiential education and recreational experiences, campers will explore and deepen their relationships with their own roots and backgrounds. Our J. Academy educational team is made up of young adults between 18 and 30 who all come from a Jewish Russian-speaking background, from both Israel and Canada. The unique, multiple identities of the educational staff foster a meaningful connection in the kids with their culture as well as various art and social disciplines. At J. Academy, campers get a chance to be involved in different Chugim, including art, theatre, dance, music, media, outdoor education and robotics 


Each of the Chugim offers an equal opportunity to explore, study and experiment with new artistic and social disciplines. In addition to the stimulating educational programs, every day, campers choose from among many amazing activity options, such as land and water sports (including tennis, soccer, baseball, mini golf, volleyball, water skiing, canoeing and kayaking, among others), nature, arts and crafts and more!

 

2018 Summer Camp prices will be posted in September.

What is the Progam Cancellation Policy?

Unless otherwise specified by a program director or within any other documentation, the following cancellation policy and JCC Credit timetable applies to all Schwartz/Reisman Centre programs:

For Programs that Meet Fewer Than 3 Times

Due to the costs and booking commitments associated with short-term programs, we regret that we cannot offer any JCC Credit for programs, classes, or events that meet fewer than three times per programming season. Additionally, The Schwartz/Reisman Centre cannot be responsible for providing make-ups or issuing any credit for programs missed as a result of personal scheduling conflicts, illness, emergencies, or other circumstances beyond our control. If you are unable to attend a program in this category, we encourage you to consider your registration fee a form of support for the Schwartz/Reisman Centre, helping to sustain wonderful programs.

For Programs that Meet 3+ Times

You may receive JCC Credit for withdrawal from a program when your cancellation request conforms to the timetable outlined below. Please note there is a $15 processing fee for all transfers and cancellations.

- Full JCC Credit will be granted for withdrawal from a Schwartz/Reisman Centre program when a written request is received at least one week before the date of the first class.

- 50% JCC Credit will be granted for withdrawal from a JCC program when a written request is received before the second class.

- After the second class, JCC Credit cannot be granted. (However, you may transfer from one class to another of equal or lesser value if there is space available and with the program director's approval.)

- All cancellation requests must be submitted in writing to: The Schwartz Reisman Centre 9600 Bathurst Street, Vaughan Ontario, L6A 3Z8, Attn: Registration; or by e-mail to [email protected] Please allow three to four weeks for processing of your cancellation request.

*All JCC programs and events are subject to change or cancellation. However, in the event that the JCC must cancel its own program, refunds will be issued. The policy articulated here applies to The Schwartz Reisman Centre only, and does not apply to Centre Camp, The Schwartz Reisman Centre daycare and preschool or The Schwartz Reisman Centre Fitness and Health.

What is required to receive the Member Discount on Programs?

In order to receive the member discount on programs, the Schwartz/Reisman Centre requires that participants be active members at the time of registration and throughout the duration of the registered program(s).

Please be advised that the Schwartz/Reisman Centre operates on a JCC Credit only policy and does not issue any refunds unless otherwise advised and approved by a program director.

JCC Credit applied to your JCC account can be redeemed for any program at the JCC (not including Centre Camp and Schwartz/Reisman Centre daycare and preschool), can be used by any family member on your account, and carries no expiration date.

When does Program Registration close?

Registration for Schwartz/Reisman Centre programs closes one week before the start date of a course. For some classes we accept registrations until the program has reached 50% of its classes.

We recommend registering as early as possible, as many programs have limited space, and other programs depend upon a certain enrollment number to ensure they will run. Your place in a program can only be guaranteed when accompanied by payment.
