Afterschool program (Grades 6-8)
Join us after school to hang out with your friends, play some Mario Kart, and get some homework done! Gesher Aftercare is equipped with gaming systems, board games and a quiet room to study. There will be a snack provided everyday as well. You do not have to be a JCC member to utilize Gesher Aftercare, but you must register & pay a nominal fee for the program.
There will be opportunities throughout the school year to participate in activities. Those activities will include Lock-Ins, a few weekend trips and some cross-over events with BBYO. We also will be offering “J-cation” programming during breaks so any time there is no school, we are here!
Please ensure we have an up to date health form – If you have not attended programs from Camp 2017 on, you will need to complete a new health form. (Health forms run summer-summer). Download: J-cation Health Form
