Metairie Mini Camps & School's Out Programs

During the school year and before and after JCC Summer Camp, the JCC offers Mini Camps for both our preschool-aged children and youth and teens to coincide with holidays and special days off. Flexible enrollment allows members to sign up by the day or the week. Camp hours are 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM. Before and after care are available. Membership is required for enrollment in mini camps.

Our School's Out programs offer activities for both members and non-members of the JCC.  Activities vary from sports to art and provide a fun safe environment for the day. Minimum enrollment of 6 is required. Contact Jessica Klein Sintes for more information.
