Kids in grades K-6th
When your kids are out of school for Winter Break, the J is the place to be. We have lots of new and exciting programs that all kids will take part in over the break as we Party in the USA. Each day will explore a different state through art work, games, and food.
Monday – Texas
We will kick off the week with two awesome field trips. K-2nd graders will be going to Going Bonkers to climb around and play arcade games, while 3rd-6th graders will be heading to Pinstack for bowling as well as two hours of unlimited play on go carts, video games, ropes course, and laser tag. Kids in grades 3rd-6th will take time to give back by working with some of our Seniors to make dolls that will be donated to sick children at Parkland Hospital. When we return to the J kids will be taking part in rodeo training as well as making some Texas themed art.
Tuesday – Hawaii
Kids of all ages will enjoy an awesome day at the J. Kids will be taking part in a new Hawaiian Pound the wave fitness class. Kids will enjoy free swim and relay races in the pool. We are also lucky to have Matt Rowland, the J’s Sports Camp Director, coming to run and teach the kids some sports skills. Also on Tuesday, all kids will be taking part in a Lip Sync battle; be sure to check out our website for videos following the battle.
Wednesday – California
First thing in the morning all kids will be enjoying a fun filled field trip to Lil Ninjas. Kids will be able to test their ninja skills and enjoy a great field trip. Once we return to the J kids will be tie-dying, taking part in a Disney trivia contest, creating a surprise snack, and dressing up their counselors for a celebrity fashion show.
