The JCC is dedicated to providing continued support for the integration of children, youth & teens with special needs into all of our JCC Departmental programs. The Inclusion Director will work with family members to create a successful experience.
Please Note: It is important to indicate your child may require an accommodation, in the corresponding box on the registration form for each program you register. Anita Lewis, Inclusion Director, will then contact you prior to the program beginning.
Individual Support may also be available for children so that they may fully participate in the following programs:
Early Childhood Center
- Camp Olami
- Specialty Camps
- School's Out Programs
- Recreational, Educational, and Cultural Programs
