Emma Kaufmann Camp opened family rentals for the summer today after receiving a permit from West Virginia to operate as a campground.

Families can rent cabins for one-week, all-inclusive sessions and enjoy activities like archery, boating and ceramics as well as Shabbat programming. The dining hall will also be open.

EKC sold over half of its inventory in the first two hours rentals were available.

The camp put in place social distancing measures, including permitting just one family per cabin (each of which has its own bathroom and set of sanitation supplies), setting a capacity of 20 families each week and sanitizing equipment between uses. Staff will support these operations.

The camp is initially offering five sessions, each of which will run from Thursday-Monday. The five-week block begins July 2 and ends August 3, though the camp will consider adding sessions if there is demand.

Families can rent cabins for multiple sessions, though they cannot stay between sessions pursuant to West Virginia restrictions. For more information, contact Aaron Cantor at acantor@jccpgh.org. PJC
