Dear Camp JORI Families,

We understand that you have questions regarding the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and how it will impact Camp JORI this upcoming season.

We realize that Camp JORI is truly a happy place and a summer refuge full of precious memories for our children, staff and alumni alike.  We recognize the high value parents place on their children’s summer at JORI.   We also continue to weigh the many factors to be considered as we approach this camp season and determine whether we open camp.  Some of these factors include but are not limited to state and local regulations,  staffing availability, and supply chains for food and other necessities.

The Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) is an evolving situation that we are following closely and will continue to update you as information is shared with us. Please rest assured that we are monitoring these health concerns. We are in close communication with the local Board of Health, The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH), as well as pediatric health care providers in the community.

Above all, we remain deeply committed to protecting the  health and wellness of all of our campers and staff.  We commit to each of you that the status of the upcoming 2021 season will be made and communicated to each of you no later than the last week of May.


Kara and Alicia,


*Camp JORI will refund 100% of your 2020 tuition if requested by the family in writing prior to May1. Starting May 1, we will refund the full amount paid minus the deposit to families who withdraw their children prior to any official closure announcement from Camp JORI.
