This past March, JCC MetroWest was required to close, along with most other businesses in New Jersey, as part of the state mandate brought on by COVID-19. Although we do not yet know when we will be able to reopen, our JCC MetroWest staff is committed to serving our community. We have been hard at work engaging thousands of members in our community via our JCC MetroWest LIVE programming, volunteer phone calls to our senior community, delivering Kosher meals to those in need and so much more.
We hope you and your family are staying safe and healthy. We look forward to welcoming you and your families back to the J when our doors reopen.
We know that you likely have questions regarding our on-going services and those to come. Please read below for answers, as well as guidance on the best resources to contact for further information.

Will summer camp open?
JCC MetroWest summer camp will open for 2020! We have both in-person and virtual camp options. Please visit our camp page for updated information and available options: https://jccmetrowest.org/programs/camps/#overview. Because of the strict CDC guidelines in terms of numbers, our in person camps will be accepting fewer children than in the past. If you are interested in registering your child(ren) please do not delay. We can not wait to see all our campers this summer!
For additional questions regarding camp, please reach out to our camp department at [email protected].
