Reluctantly, the Board and Staff of the JCC will not be able to offer Camp Chai this summer, in 2021.
We took a lot of time to make this decision because we truly hoped to be able to bring all of your children together this summer. We have found you a few Sonoma County based Jewish camps offering sessions. If this is of interest to your family, or to read our Executive Director's full message, click here. 
We hope you and your children will have a wonderful summer!
