Summer of Family Fun Planned at the JCC

Summer officially kicks off at the JCC on Saturday, May 24 with the opening of the outdoor pools. Families will have fun all summer long at the JCC says Alicia Springer, membership director.

“It’s basically a summer of family fun in the sun,” she said.

On opening day, families are welcomed into the pool at 10:30 a.m. and are encouraged to bring a picnic to enjoy the first day of the pool.

Starting June 4, the Family Fun Fit class, which comes free with membership, will be offered outdoors, with work outs in the pool. The class offers children and care-givers alike interval training, cardio vascular and resistance training as well as core strength and flexibility training. The program is for children ages five and up and is offered Mondays from 5:45 p.m.-6:15 p.m. in the upper gym and Wednesdays 5:45 p.m.-6:15 p.m. in the pool.

On June 8, the animated comedy Rio will be shown in the JCC Family Park with free popcorn and drinks and pizza for purchase.

There will be an old-fashioned Fourth of July event outside, with a diving contest, games, activities, food and drinks, so families will have a great way to celebrate the holiday.

And in August, there’s the popular movie event in the pool area, so families can watch a favorite film while floating.

Summer Memberships at the JCC will run from May 24-September 1. Family membrships cost $495 and include a discount of JCC Summer Camps. Individual memberships are $350 and also include use of the entire fitness facility and nearly 100 free group fitness classes per week.

“You get so much more than just the pool,” Springer said.
