Snow Day Camps

When schools are closed for inclement weather, but the roads are safe and the JCC is open, we may open a Snow Day Camp.  Hours will depend on when the building can open safely, and cost depends on hours.

As soon as we know we are offering a camp (evening before or morning of) we will send an email to the JCC email list and post on our facebook page with a link to registration.  Space fills very quickly!
