Camp JCC Preschool Carnival gives kids a taste of camp—and sweet treats

by | Mar 25, 2016 | What’s Happening

Sunday, April 17, 9:30 am to 12:30 pm—Free and open to everyone

April is the ideal time to put summer plans in place for young children. The weather’s warm, the school year is almost over, and rather than be left scrambling for what to do for three long months, parents can pull out their calendars and know they’ve got fun, enriching and age-appropriate activities scheduled for their kids.

A Sunday morning in April is also a great time for a fun and free family outing.

The Camp JCC Preschool Carnival combines the two—getting that summer plan in place and having a fun day with the entire family.

Games, crafts, face painting, a bounce house, and the fluffy sweet goodness that is cotton candy will abound at the Simon Family JCC during the carnival. Those attending can enter to win a drawing for a free week of camp for a child—worth as much as $300.

While events will captivate and excite preschoolers, parents and caregivers will get a chance to see the inviting, safe JCC facility, and learn about the many Camp JCC options available—weeks upon weeks of carefully planned sessions.

Camp JCC’s senior staff will be on hand, answering questions and giving family tours to introduce parents and children to the camp areas, such as kid-friendly classrooms, indoor and outdoor pools, the gym, the playgrounds and outdoor sports fields.

The carnival is free and open to everyone. New campers, returning campers, alumni— all are welcome. Families with younger and older children are welcome to come speak with staff and take tours also; the JCC has camps designed for children as young as 16 months all the way through 11th grade.
