JCC Offers Full Refunds, Including Registration Fee

BOCA RATON, FL ( — The Levis JCC in Boca Raton is the latest to officially cancel summer camp — here is the email sent to parents:

“As summer draws near, we know that your children are looking forward — maybe more than ever – to fun, friendship and their camp family. We’ve been writing to you to keep you updated, and just yesterday mentioned that we’d let you know our plans as soon as we have information to share. In that spirit, today we received some important information.

On a daily basis our leadership team has been planning for a safe and fun summer for your children. Regrettably, we will not be able to run our Marleen Forkas Summer 2020 program. As a resident on the Jewish Federation’s campus, the home to many vital community agencies and more than 700 vulnerable residents, we must adhere to campus policies. This afternoon Federation informed all campus agencies that our campus “will remain closed until further notice…” and that “the campus will be unavailable for the Levis JCC Marleen Forkas Summer Camp.” It is our intention to resume Zale Early Childhood preschool as scheduled this fall.

As stated in previous messages, because we cannot present summer camp in person on campus, you will receive a full refund (including the registration fee).”
