School Days Off

Attention Parents: when school is out, the JCC provides exciting full-day programs for your child. 

Squirrel Hill J Days and Kids Nite Out
Parents can rest assured that their children are in a safe environment with plenty of social and educational opportunities. Many of the J Days staff work year-round at Clubhouse, the JCC’s after-school program, and at JCC day and overnight camps. Each day includes games, gym time, swimming and snack. Children will participate in icebreakers and have the opportunity to do art projects and no-bake cooking. Have your child bring a dairy lunch, swim suit and towel every day.
