Health forms for multiple campers:

Vaccination Requirements:

In order to better protect our campers, we are updating our vaccination requirements for both staff and campers at SJC. Previous requirements were minimal and we feel that it is prudent to do so going forward.

For campers younger than 11 years old:

  • Tdap  a combination vaccine that protects against tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough)-
  • MMR (Mumps, measles, rubella)
  • IPV  (Polio)

For campers 11 years old and older:

  • Tdap  a combination vaccine that protects against tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough)
  • Bexsero or Trumemba to prevent  meningitis caused by meningococcal serogroup B (age 16 yrs and older)
  • Menactra to prevent infection caused by meningococcal bacteria serogroups A/C/W/Y  (given at age 12 and 16yr)

The vaccines that we are requiring are part of the routine vaccine schedule and would be covered by insurance. If no insurance, the public health department or travel clinic probably has them for a low cost.  PLEASE PLAN IN ADVANCE TO ALLOW ENOUGH TIME TO GET THESE VACCINATIONS OR BOOSTERS WELL BEFORE CAMP!

Late fees:

It is of vital importance that we receive your camper’s physician-signed health forms by Sunday, July 12, 2020 so we can authorize your registration. The following late fees will be assessed if your health forms or registration balance are submitted after the due date.

  • $100 late fee if all health forms + insurance cards are not received by Sunday, July 12, 2020.
  • $50 late fee per camper if balance of payment is not received by Sunday, July 12, 2020.
  • *Campers who arrive at camp missing health forms will be sent home and NO refunds will be made.

Cancellation & Refunds

  • Families who cancel their reservation from Sunday, July 19, 2020 (2 weeks before camp starts) will forfeit their deposit.
  • If canceling from Sunday, July 26, 2020 (one week before camp starts) or later, the entire payment will be forfeited.
  • Cancellation or removal from camp, or removal due to expulsion, will result in forfeiture of the entire payment. Refunds may be granted under special circumstances (e.g. medical emergency) at the sole discretion of the SJC director.

Camp Store:

Camp fees include $10.00 to spend at the camp store. Each day after lunch, campers may purchase juice, candy, stamps, T-shirts sweatshirts, etc. from the camp store.

Additionally, certain afternoon electives may have a small fee associated with them to cover the cost of camp crafts, T-shirt design, etc. Therefore, you may send in additional money for your camper to spend at the camp store with your balance of payment if camper plans to spend more than $10.00 for any of the above items. We will bill you after camp for any additional store credit used.  Please note:  Any store credit balances less than $12.50 will be considered a donation to SJC, and not returned. *Time and labor involved in refunding less than $12.50 make it impractical.

Code of Conduct Contract:

The Sae Jong Camp Camper Code of Conduct is a set of guidelines that outlines the appropriate behavior expected of campers and staff members in order to promote a positive experience and safe environment for all in attendance. This agreement is a required step during online registration. Parent’s must certify that they have reviewed the contract with their camper(s).

Financial Assistance:

Sae Jong Camp offers financial assistance to families facing special circumstances, long-distance travel or financial hardship. We offer this assistance through the through the Chull Victor Kim Campership Fund. In Victor’s memory, his family and others generously provide aid to help campers attend SJC.

Confidential requests for financial aid can be made in step 6 of the application process. All information submitted and actual financial aid provided is kept confidential. Please contact us to request financial assistance, or if you have any questions.

Bus transportation no longer offered:

Unfortunately we can no longer offer bus service to/from SJC. Ridership has declined over the past several years to the point that it is no longer cost-effective for us to charter a bus. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you are interested in car-pooling to/from camp, please contact us and we’ll try to help.
