Vacation Days

Don’t Sweat Vacations

Just because school is out for Winter and Spring Break doesn’t mean working parents have to scramble to find  activities for their school aged children. The JCC Kids Center works with a wide variety of schools on the North Shore to offer the Big Chill covering Winter Break and The Big Thaw covering Spring break. This series of activities lets you and your child enjoy school vacation but with a routine and structure that occupies and engages them in fun physical and social activities.

Vacation days are also offered anytime local schools are out throughout the school year as well, not just winter and spring breaks.

The JCC is proud to provide an inclusive environment for members, guests, and families. For many members of our community, the laws of Kashrut (keeping kosher) represent a core Jewish belief. Out of respect for all of our families, we ask that you follow these simple guidelines when packing lunches for our School’s Out Vacation Days.


  • Lunches may contain meat items or dairy items, but not both.
  • Please do not pack any pork products or shellfish.
  • Nuts are allowed in all programs except Gan Ami.
  • Children are asked not to share any part of their lunches with their friends.
