Summer Camp Fun Is Underway

The J Summer Camps kicked off on Monday, June 6, as hundreds of children came through the doors with huge grins and energy that ignited the entire building.

The “Space” themed first week included several aliens roaming the hallways and the pool. Some highlights from the week included a visit from the library, making butterflies to honor Muhammad Ali’s legacy and seeing some great soccer games at 4kicks 4 Kidz Cosmic Cup Soccer Camp.

In the specialty art camp, children learned about Michelangelo and painted their own Sistine Chapels. In Alien Camp, campers dressed in costume with pairs of antennas sprouted from their heads.

Perhaps the favorite of all was pool time! The children lined the halls as they prepared to head out to the pools.

Senior Director of Camp and Youth Services, Betsy Schwartz, said she couldn’t have asked for a better start to summer camps.

“We’ve all had so much fun keeping the kids busy. From pool time to arts and crafts to field trips, I’m so excited for the rest of summer,” Schwartz said.

Several camps have waitlists, but there’s still time to ensure your children spots in some of The J’s summer camps that run through August 5 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with extended day options available, 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Scholarships and discounts are available. To reserve your spot, call Mary Dooley at 502-238-2718.
