youth and family

Raising kids is a community effort. Lucky for you, we have a vibrant community center here to support your family through every age and stage of development. Whether you grew up at the JCC yourself or are newer to our community, we welcome your family to grow, play, and make new friends with us.

Discovery is an amazing thing. At the J, we provide high-quality, values-focused education and care for young learners ages 6 weeks to 5th Grade. Enroll your little one in the best Early Childhood Education program in our area with two convenient locations. Let your kids hop on the JCC bus for After School Care knowing that they will have the space to release their boundless energy and expand their learning through swim lessons, sports, and explorations in the arts and sciences.

Summer is a great time to take the learning out of the classroom and into the great outdoors. Whether your family is looking for a traditional Day Camp experience, half-day Rec Camps, or a Jewish Overnight Camp in the Wisconsin Northwoods, the JCC provides safe, inclusive spaces where children and teens can explore interests, build communities, demonstrate values, and experience the power of play.

Youth Rec & Aquatics

Every day, kids come to the JCC to try something new, grow, and learn. Hop in our UV-filtered pool for American Red Cross Swim Lessons, or fill your afternoon and weekend hours with Youth Rec classes. There are classes for toddlers and teens, artists and athletes, swimmers and scientists. Most classes and programs offered each season are open for the whole community. JCC members receive discounted pricing and priority registration.
