JCC Winter Camp lets children explore different professions

[By Niki King]

What do you want to be when you grow up? It’s a question kids can explore in Winter Camp at the JCC! Children can use their day off from school to imagine what it might be like to be an artist, musician, scientist or police officer through fun field trips and activities at the JCC’s Winter Camp, Dec. 23-Jan. 4.

“We’ll have a blast each day exploring what professionals do in kid-friendly ways,” said Angie Hiland, Early Childhood Assistant Director. “The kids will do things like dig for hidden treasure and dinosaur bones on archaeology day or create edible jewelry as an example of what chefs do.”
Parents love winter camp, too, because they know their kids are in a safe place when school is not in session.

‘When I grow up I want to be…’ camp is open to children in preschool-5th grades from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. with extended day options available for an additional fee. Every day includes physical activity, arts and crafts and a snack, with swimming daily for children in kindergarten-5th grades. Special guests will include Steve-O the Magician, musicians John Gage and David Serchuk and kindergarden-5th grades will visit the Louisville Slugger Museum.

Specialty camps run for two or three days and are open to kindergarten-5th grades. Lego camps include factory building and girl-centric programs.
Specialty camps run from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. with extended day options available until 6 p.m. Snacks are provided.
