Dear Summer Discovery Families,

It is with a heavy heart to inform you we have made the decision to cancel the Summer Discovery Program 2020 due to Covid-19 and other considerations. We will be making space for our campus partners, including the MJCC Day Camp and other childcare services, who will be offering programming in the building. Our priority is the health and safety of our community, and for these reasons, we will be taking a hiatus this summer.

This would have been our 11th year of offering quality, enrichment programming by caring, professional, experienced staff. Every summer we gather to explore, create, design, connect, work for the world, and of course, DISCOVER new learning about the world around us. We will miss working along-side our students and families, as well as staff this summer. Summer Discovery will be back in 2021, so please check back early in the new year for program information.

If you are currently enrolled in one of the classes, please consider one of these options:

1. Turn your registration fees into a tax-deductible gift to Portland Jewish Academy’s Annual fund. 
Note: Annual Fund monies support activities ranging from field trips and art supplies, to technology professional development, and faculty salaries.               

2.  Apply Summer Discovery fee payments as a credit on your account for the 2020-21 School Year. 
Note: Option for students/families who are enrolled at Portland Jewish Academy for the 2020-2021 academic year.

3.  Request a full refund.

Please let us know which option you prefer by filling out this form
Have a wonderful, safe and healthy summer.
