Online registration and payment of an administrative membership fee of $75 are required to become a member of JCAT. Members may attend any and all events for their age groups throughout the school year. Participants in JCA’s Grade 6/7 B’nai Mitzvah program are automatically enrolled in JCAT, with administrative fees included in their tuition.

Payment may be made online HERE or in-person to the JCA office.

Monthly emails will be sent to all JCAT members with details on upcoming events.

Individual events may have additional fees attached to them to help pay the actual costs of running JCAT programs. For example, an overnight retreat may cost $125, while rock climbing at Central Rock Gym may cost $25. Event fees for JCA members and non-member participants may vary. Payment for individual events will be due by the day of the event.

It is important to us that everybody be able to participate in JCAT. If the fee for an event is a problem for you, please contact administrative director Ann Wetherbee at admindir@jcamherst.org or at (413) 256-0160 x 207 to discuss financial aid options. For special programs like overnight retreats you may be eligible for grants. Contact Keren Rhodes, Director of Youth and Family Education, to learn more about grants.
