Splashes of color and hours of fun planned for opening day pool party

Sunday, May 22, 1–4 pm, Simon Family JCC, Free for everyone

The calendar may say May, but the weather shouts, “summer.”

Simon Family JCC members and guests are invited to cool off and get their feet wet at the first pool party of 2016. The family friendly outdoor waterpark was scheduled to officially open on Memorial Day weekend, but with a reconditioned pool floor, a come-on-in-the-water’s-fine temperature, and an experienced lifeguard staff, the decision was made to open the pool a week early for this special event.

Plans for the party include something for everyone—from babies and toddlers to preschoolers, older children, parents and grandparents. Poolside lounging is encouraged, but so is non-stop movement.

Activities include a bounce house, dunk tank, and Gaga tournaments. Partygoers will get to express their artistic sides, too, throwing balloons filled with colored water at a wall and creating a one-of-a-kind mural. Giveaways and games are planned, as well.

The pool party provides a welcoming opportunity for new and interested campers to experience some of the fun they’ll have when they attend Camp JCC this summer. All of the children who attend are invited to join in the taping of a new, 2016 Camp JCC music video. Former campers are encouraged to wear their favorite Camp JCC t-shirt from seasons past for the chance to be featured in the video.

Two of the best summertime deals in Hampton Roads will be offered at the pool party and through the end of the month: the Simon Family JCC’s Summer Membership Camp Special is only $150 per family, for the entire summer, when one child is registered for four weeks of camp. No kids in camp? No problem. The JCC’s $299 Early Bird Special offers the same membership benefits for all family members.

Summer memberships include the same as a year-round membership:
• Fitness center membership
• Outdoor water park
• Three indoor pools
• Free babysitting while working out
• Outdoor mini golf, playgrounds, tennis courts
• Towel service, steam room, sauna
• Indoor gymnasium
• More than 65 group fitness classes each week
