Countdown to Summer!
Taglit - "Discovery"
Grades: Entering 6 - 8
Location: Uptown (4 weeks, July 2 - July 27) and Metairie (8 weeks, June 4 - July 27)
Camp Taglit is designed especially for teens and their busy summer schedules. The program allows teens to choose the weeks they would like to attend. Each week will have a specific focus. Campers will work with a specialist in their chosen field each morning and enjoy other camp activities like swimming, sports, and hanging out with friends each afternoon.
Grades: Entering 6 - 8
Tennis Camp includes a full day of programming. Mornings focus on tennis skills and gameplay. Afternoons will be spent at the JCC eating lunch, swimming, and participating in various athletic activities. Tennis campers will receive valuable instruction as they develop their forehand, backhand, serve and volley within a small group at a tennis facility and in the JCC gymnasium. They will be evaluated and grouped according to skill level. All skill levels are welcome to participate.
