     "Our daughter spent nearly 5 years in the JCC Early Childhood Center in the infant, toddler, preschool, and other rooms, before moving on to the various children's and teen programs at the JCC. Now as a 9th Grader, she and her cohort of JCC friends have enjoyed many JCC Vacation Camps and  Summer Camps, Kidz Night Out, JCC Teen Camp, and other special programs. During these 14 years of continuous participation in JCC programs, it has been a comfort to know that such quality programming is available in our community. As parents, we are always confident in the high quality programs offered by the quality
staff and leadership of the Youth Programs. Our daughter has always enjoyed the special programming such as Overnight opportunities, Sports challenges, and time to reconnect with old friends. We think she enjoys JCC Teen Camp most of all with the Water Sports and socialization opportunities." - Mark S., JCC Teen Camp Parent
