Tweens and Teens

A Taste of Independence

When your child turns 9, they are welcome to come to the JCC independently. Playing in the gym, swimming, hanging in the pre-teen lounge or grabbing a snack at the café with friends is a great privilege. We are happy to offer this privilege to children ages 9-14 who can be responsible for themselves and respectful of others in the building and of our facility. 

Children under the age of 9 must be registered for a program or class or be accompanied by a responsible friend or relative who is at least 16-years-old.

Tweens and Teens Classes

For 9-14 year-olds, the JCC is THE after school/weekend hangout, but sometimes hanging out isn’t enough. The tween/early teen years can be challenging and the JCC has specially designed programs and activities that allow this age group to explore a new skill or perfect an old favorite. Art, a variety of sports and dance classes and the highly acclaimed Red Cross babysitting course are just a few of the options available for Tweens and young teens.
