Winter Camp Wonderland at the Boulder JCC

Are you wondering what your children are going to do during the first week of Winter Break December 19-23? The answer is right here in Boulder, and the Boulder JCC is providing the solution. For the first time, the Boulder JCC is launching 5 different age-specific specialty camps for children ages 5-12. From Legos® to Dance to Science there are options for everyone.

These winter break camps build on the success of the  Boulder JCC’s new summer specialty camps. There will be two Play-Well TEKnologies Lego® camps, Jedi Engineering and Green Machines, a Creative Dance Kids Camp, and two Science Matters camps, Advanced Catapults and Backyard Ballistica. The Green Machines camp is the first time this camp is being offered in Colorado, with chances to work with renewable technology and Legos®.

“My child participated in this past summer’s Jedi engineering Lego Camp and loved it. The instructors were incredible, and my son came home every day excited to share what he created! He is looking forward to another camp at the JCC,” said Paula Pollachek.

Shari Blake Schnee, Boulder JCC Shalom Family and Camp Director shared, “These camps offer fun for everyone. We partnered with Science Matters, Play-Well TEKnology, and Creative Dance Kids because they are the best organizations in their fields. The camps this winter will be amazing!”

Shari explained that “registrations are moving quickly, so if you are interested don’t wait.” For more information about the camps or to register, visit the Boulder JCC Winter Camps Web Page.
