Specialty Camp Immunization Policy

In light of the recent Measles outbreak, for the safety to all, full compliance is required for the following policy:
Policy Statement on Immunizations
The Kaplen JCC on the Palisades Immunization Policy requires that all children from childhood through young adulthood must be up to date with their immunizations as per guidelines of the New Jersey Minimum Immunization Requirements for Child Care/Preschool Attendance and the New Jersey Department of Health regarding camp programs.  With the safety and welfare of all of our program participants and campers, by implementing this policy we are able to take the proper precautions to ensure that all of our children, teens and young adults are properly protected against childhood diseases.
 
Religious exemptions will not be permitted by our programs and summer camp(s) for the required childhood immunizations which include:
• •Varicella (Chickenpox)
• •DTaP (Diphtheria, Tetanus and Pertussis
• •Hib (Haemophilus Influenzae type B)
• •Flu Vaccine (yearly)
• •MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella
• IPV (Polio)
It is now our firm camp policy that all campers enrolled in our programing adhere to the minimum immunization requirements for the State of New Jersey https://www.nj.gov/health/cd/documents/imm_requirements/k12_parents.pdf
