JCC Spaces & Places Update for June 2021

JCC Spaces & Places Update for June 2021

This summer, the JCC is going to be the place to Reclaim Summer! As the Director of Recreation & Aquatics, I am excited to share some updates on the summer use of many of our most popular Spaces & Places and invite you to take advantage of all the benefits of JCC membership at our facilities in both Mequon and Whitefish Bay.

This is a long one with lots of details, so feel free to contact me or call the JCC at 414-964-4444 if you have any questions.

Hy & Richard Smith JCC Water Park

We look forward to welcoming our JCC member families to the Hy & Richard Smith JCC Water Park in Mequon on Opening Day, Friday, June 11. The park will be open daily through Labor Day for two blocks this summer. Click here to read more about the JCC Water Park.

And finally, parents, it’s not too late to help your kids reclaim summer, and the JCC has many options for members that are also open to the whole community:

Summer Youth Rec Classes & Clinics at the J – 8-13 year olds can hop on their bikes or get dropped off for classes that take place once a week for a couple of hours, or clinics for a few hours every day over the course of one week. Sports, art, cooking, diving, chess, and more! EXPLORE OPTIONS

JCC Rainbow Day Camp – K5-9th graders can hop on a bus and spend the day exploring our 110-acre campsite in Fredonia. Sign up for one week, a two-week session, or all summer! Before & After Camp wraparound care also available. LEARN MORE

Thank you for continuing this journey with us as we get ready for another fun JCC summer. We are always grateful for your ongoing support in ensuring the strength of our community.
